Ginhawa is an ancient Filipino word which means breath, much like “ruah” in Hebrew. It also represents life force, like “qi” in Chinese, or “prana” in Sanskrit.
Ginhawa also means ease of life, relief from pain or suffering, and general well-being. Ginhawa is an ancient concept among Filipinos.
Ginhawa is also a direct human experience and living value of Leah Tolentino, founding associate of GINHAWA, Inc. Leah experienced chronic ailments since childhood and was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease with no known cure in the western bio-medical model.
