Dr. Len (right).

Hawaiian psychologist Dr. Hew Len reportedly "healed an entire hospital of mentally ill criminals without ever having interviewed a single patient. 

"He focused on healing himself and, miraculously, it ended up transforming an entire hospital of both staff and patients!"

"Zero Limits" Book Review by Scott Mowry

Hawaii State Hospital, where Dr Hew Len reportedly worked.

Two social workers at the hospital, Omaka-O-Kala Hamaguchi and Emory Lance Oliveira, have written about Dr. Hew Len's work at the hospital

"The ward, Hamaguchi and Oliveira explained, was a newly opened forensic unit called the Closed Intensive Security Unit (CISU)... 

"Dr. Hew Len ... always seemed happy and at ease, and everyone at the hospital liked him... 

"Hamaguchi and Oliveira confirmed that as the years went by even some of the most severely ill patients in the unit appeared to be getting better, and the entire unit seemed to be 'coming alive' – even the plants were thriving... 

"Things and people were all around more functional. They also noted that Dr. Hew Len had shared some of his ho'oponopono techniques with the staff."

Whirled Musings

Dr. Hew Len was taught by Morrnah Simeonawhose version of hoʻoponopono was influenced by her Christian beliefs.

There are some people who doubt that Dr Hew Len had anything to do with the Hawaii hospital.

Whirled Musings: Lunatics, lawn chairs, and sweet little lies

However, Michael Micklei reports that Dr. Hew Len used his ho'oponopono healing at Hawaii State Hospital from 1984 to 1987.

Michael Micklei reports that every day he saw Dr. Hew Len walking through the hospital.

Dr. Hew Len is a teacher of Ho'oponopono, which dates back centuries in Hawaii and beyond.

Ho'oponopono corrects, restores and maintains good relationships.

The basis of Dr. Hew Len's Ho'oponopono is that in order to make changes, and create miracles, you must take responsibility for everything in the world.

According to Hew Len, everything exists as a projection from inside the human being. [45]

How can you be responsible for 9/11 or the French Revolution?

Dr. Hew Len believes that we are responsible for everything that we experience; our minds, shaped by our present life and past lives, creates our world.

In order for things to improve, you must take total responsibility for everything in the world.

To get the power to change things for the better, Dr. Hew Len instructs that you repeatedly say to the 'Divine':

"I am sorry," "please forgive me," "thank you," and "I love you."

"Problems that show up in our lives are merely reminders of old 'memories' that need to be healed.

"And the memories are ancient as well, having been passed down through generations of our families and ancestors. And we pick up memories like we do viruses."


Dr. Hew Len was asked about the healing of the mentally ill criminals. 

"What were you doing within yourself that caused those people to change?"

"'I was simply healing the part of me that created them,' he said. 

"Dr. Len explained that total responsibility for your life means that everything in your life - simply because it is in your life - is your responsibility. 

"In a literal sense the entire world is your creation."

Dr. Len's story


Excerpt from "Zero Limits" by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len.

Dr. Len's story

"The psychologist Dr. Hew Len would study an inmate's chart and then look within himself to see how he created that person's illness.

"As he improved himself, the patient improved.

"Dr. Len never saw patients.

"He agreed to have an office and to review their files. While he looked at those files, he would work on himself.

"As he worked on himself, patients began to heal.

Dr. Len's story

"After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely," he told me.

"Others who had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed." I was in awe. "Not only that," he went on, "but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared.

"'What were you doing within yourself that caused those people to change?'

"I was simply healing the part of me that created them," he said...

"If you want to cure anyone - even a mentally ill criminal - you do it by healing you.

"I asked Dr. Len how he went about healing himself. What was he doing, exactly, when he looked at those patients' files?

"I just kept saying, 'I'm sorry' and 'I love you' over and over again," he explained...

"Turns out that loving yourself is the greatest way to improve yourself, and as you improve yourself, your improve your world..."

Joe Vitale sounds like a conman tbh, here's another view of his interactions with Dr. Hew Len

There is zero evidence the "healed an entire hospital of mentally ill criminals without ever having interviewed a single patient" story is anything more than a story, it appears Dr. Hue was fired from the institution. I wouldn't trust any story Joe Vitale sold. Saying that tho, I think Ho'oponopono is probably a good thing, on the similar level to any meditation technique, but like meditation in general, it's open to any huckster to use it for personal gain.

Common tactic from the network is to have something real promoted by shills.

Then, once the curtains fall away and we see the players, those who don't view reality independently will declare it as fake and abandon the process.

Grattitude is incredibly powerful,that's a core component here.

Dear joe hater , i think you fail to observe the background , joe vitale is one of your old style internet marketers , it was joes job to get ho`oponopono in to broader circulation , joe did his job

i have travelled 2 times to listen to dr Hew lin once in i think it was denmark other time was amsterdam , personally i found it good to understand a better connection to my soul , and the
i love you
im sorry
please forgive me
thank you

has helped my through , your comment sounds very bitter you only appear to have negative to say , a bit like a misleading tommy Robinson , i have gone to 2 of dr hew len talks , they taught me useful things like remembering i have soul , basic yes , but put 100 against , and ask those that speak to there soul , take one step forward , not many would ,,, can i ask why are you so angry and bitter , its sound like you need to watch a few of Dr Lew lens videos , and get to know yourself a bit better , because the person wrote those words is bitter and twisted how sad ,
ps back up your it appears he was fired story , up to now you sound like a sad Zionist , that dont like people feeling good oy vey

Ppl with different opinions are nowadays called haters, so interesting. And realism is considered negativism, how brilliant again....

Steve: the negative was clearly directed at joe vitale who invented the story to sell his books, not Dr. Hew, if you read Joe's second book on the subject where he has a pop at Dr. Hue (because Hew pointed out Joe's pratice of charging people $100 to put their name on a wall at a conference [for 'cleaning'] was for "suckers") maybe you'd have some perspective.

comparing me to zionists for pointing out the fruits of research about joe who has a long history of hukstering sounds rather bitter & angry matey, maybe you need to clean on that and recognnise your ego's part in that comment!

If that time you've spent with Dr. Hew Len made such an impression with you one would expect you'd get his name right.

walk your own path, you don't need a guru, especially one who charges by the hour!

Peace out xx

Well... I was going to comment on how it was introduced to me a few weeks ago in Peru, but I don't think I will now!
(I haven't really used this technique, although I have been using a technique known as 'Psych K' to heal myself... please feel free to do a piece on that Aang/Iran, and watch as commentators tear themselves apart with their views on that one)
Also reading an interesting book called 'Our Dolphin Ancestors, Keepers of Lost Knowledge and Healing Wisdom'... ... I don't think homo sapiens are the planets most conscious and 'intelligent' species!

Hi there , i agree with you that joe , is joe , but at the end of the day joe got more people aware of Dr Hew , is that a good thing or a bad thing ? ( putting the money to one side) the 2 conferences i went to no extra monies were asked for , i made the remark , as you were trying to piss on the efforts , that someone made to put this piece up on aanirfan , you wrote from a very negative viewpoint, didnt not include any evidence to back up your claims , as a person who has experienced the benefit then i am going to engage with you when you try to say its no good , what are the fruits of your research , do you really care about my spelling as thats a typical jidf zionist ploy , to try to put the other person down , why would you do that ??
looks like you have had a easy life , to make comments like
walk your own path, you don't need a guru, especially one who charges by the hour! i am glad that i have encountered others and even paid , for that has helped me to be able to walk my own road , ps your negative was not only directed at joe but also Dr hew , you need to look over what you wrote , to give your self a quick reminder , ps im not great at grammar or spelling but you still understand , so why try to be little me ? I have experienced positive outcomes from listening to Dr Hew , So i could not understand why you were trying to malign him , have you ever been to a Dr Hew conference , is so when , quick tip if you going to mention that i got the spelling wrong of Dr Hew , maybe you should have noticed your own different spelling of his name lol you typed Dr hue and Dr hew ,
just saying

Don't self sensor your ideas/views, it's only by exchanging views we can all grow. Course some people can do it civilly whilst other struggle with that concept, which tend to diminish any value they contribute.
