Louie has been a student of the Principles for more than 20 years. He had worked
with domestic violence and anger management groups in the past, but he knew
something was missing. When he met Sydney Banks and started learning about
innate health, he knew that the Three Principles were the key to helping the people
he worked with. He came to work with the Hawaii Counseling & Education Center
in 1998 and, with Christine Heath, developed the Ho`o Maka Hou Program. Louie
facilitated multiple weekly groups for court-referred men and had a 95% non-
recidivism rate for violent offenses over a monitored 8-year span. He retired to
sunny Mexico to play Hawaiian music and siesta in the shade, but was lured back to
work this year and now co-facilitates weekly groups via telehealth.
