Crystal Light Bed in Hawaii

A Crystal Light Bed, sometimes also called an advanced chromo therapy machine is a spiritual
treatment device that uses colored light beams focused at your chakras or energy centers through
seven very pure quartz crystals. The alternating lights produce a balancing effect on your energy
body as you lay with your eyes closed and meditate to soft relaxing music while your energy
body is receiving this external assistance to stay in balance.

Developed by John of God, crystal
beds use Brazilian clear-cut
quartz crystals to generate color and
light therapy to cleanse, clear and raisethe vibration of your chakras (also known as energy centers).
A session consists of lying in the bed for approximately 30 minutes while listening to soothing music and relaxing (many people fall asleep or into a deep meditative state).

Crystal Light Bed Therapy Sessions:

I invite you to take the journey into your own healing with The Crystal Light Bed in Hawaii at
Island Women’s Healing in Pahoa.

Sessions can be enjoyed daily in time increments of 30 minutes.

30 Minute Sessions: $25.00
Sessions by appointment. Contact: Hallie Larsson (808) 756-3034

There have been a series of events and parties recently that have been scheduled on the same day and time thus causing many to have to make a choice between Event A and Party B . We hope this helps.

Creating Sustainable Communities-"Zombie Apocalypse"

We’ve received a request from the Imiloa Astronomy Center to please provide contacts or help reach out to people who are involved in creating sustainable communities or unique systems, equipment, etc. that are geared toward self-sustainability (like bicycle-powered washing

machines, etc.). They are having some educational events this October with the theme of "Zombie Apocalypse" – the idea being that they want to share innovative, cool ways people are working toward self-sustainability on the island. Anyhow – this could be a great way to raise more awareness throughout Puna about what your communities

are up to, what the Hawaii Sustainable Community Alliance is pushing for, etc.

If you’re interested, or if you know of anyone out there who has created cool prototypes of any sustainable contraptions they might be interested in sharing, etc., please contact or have them contact Craig Mitchel asap at cmitchell 969-9720.

Aikido. Thursday 6pm-7pm. Aikido is a beautiful, flowing Japanese

martial art that focuses on creating a flawless connection with your own

and your opponent’s mind and body to achieve true victory. Most attacks

are derived from sword fighting. Grabs and open-handed blows are

prevalent. Defenses make use of the opponent’s momentum, direction of

attach, and body mechanics and often look circular, mostly ending in

throws, arm- or wrist-locks. Aikido philosophy states that true victory

means winning against your own weakness and achieving harmony with the people and the world. Training aikido will improve your posture, body

coordination, and confidence. You will learn skills useful for self

defense, reducing stress levels, controlling your temper, and solving

problems in everyday life. Cost $7.

Swing Dance. Friday 7:30pm – 9:00pm. If you ever wanted to dance like

Fred Astair…well, we can’t promise you’ll learn that, but we DO promise to

teach you this:

– How to listen to the music and do what it asks of your body.

– How to get a good connection with your partner, lead and follow well.

– Basic (and later more advanced) Lindy Hop steps for couple dancing.

– Jazz steps for individual dancing – if you’re a juggler, prop

manipulator or anything related, this will add a whole new flavor to your

performance! Cost $7

Ongoing Class Schedule:

Course Inspiration
"Aloha ‘Aina" is Hawaiian for "love of the land", or "to love, respect, and nurture the land." As human beings now facing a time of great environmental and social transformation, we believe that it is through this spirit of reconnecting to ourselves, to our communities, and to the Earth with a spirit of love and care that we will renew and restore a healthy balance of human beings living in harmony with each other and their natural environment. We are inspired and grateful to be offering this holistic permaculture design intensive to the greater Island Community to further empower and synergize our efforts of personal, ecological, and social regeneration.

Course Description
The Aloha ‘Aina Holistic Permaculture Design Course will include the standard 72-hour permaculture design curriculum based upon the original Mollison and Holmgren ideas and design philosophies published in The Permaculture Designer’s Manual, as well as be a nourishing retreat and hands-on immersion experience of sustainable living ecovillage design. In addition to the standard permaculture design certification curriculum, we recognize permaculture as an expanding, holistic design philosophy encompassing many fields. Accordingly, this permaculture design course will include and integrate additional content and activities such as nature awareness, indigenous wisdom, embodiment practices, inner work, group process, ecovillage design, hands-on, and more. With a focus on tending the inner, outer, and community landscapes… course participants will work with each other and local community residents on tangible design project scenarios to implement positive transformation within themselves and in the local community.

Dynamic Governance, Social Permaculture, & Village Design

This course will include an additional 2 Day Intensive on Dynamic Governance, Social Permaculture, & Village Design. We will explore the fundamentals, methodologies, and tools for dynamic governance through the lens of Village Design. Participants will learn strategies and proven modalities for creating and sustaining intentional communities, democratic decision-making processes, and agile project management skills for collaborative endeavors.

Developing a culture of inclusion and equality, reaching consent as a whole group, and being empowered to act swiftly and decisively are benchmarks of success for any organization, project, or community. Dynamic Governance is a proven approach that builds trust, inspires participation, and allows cohesive teams to effectively get results within their own sphere, while supporting the broader goals and success of the entire organization.

Crystal Light Bed in Hawaii

A Crystal Light Bed, sometimes also called an advanced chromo therapy machine is a spiritual
treatment device that uses colored light beams focused at your chakras or energy centers through
seven very pure quartz crystals. The alternating lights produce a balancing effect on your energy
body as you lay with your eyes closed and meditate to soft relaxing music while your energy
body is receiving this external assistance to stay in balance.

Developed by John of God, crystal
beds use Brazilian clear-cut
quartz crystals to generate color and
light therapy to cleanse, clear and raisethe vibration of your chakras (also known as energy centers).
A session consists of lying in the bed for approximately 30 minutes while listening to soothing music and relaxing (many people fall asleep or into a deep meditative state).

Crystal Light Bed Therapy Sessions:

I invite you to take the journey into your own healing with The Crystal Light Bed in Hawaii at
Island Women’s Healing in Pahoa.

Sessions can be enjoyed daily in time increments of 30 minutes.

30 Minute Sessions: $25.00
Sessions by appointment. Contact: Hallie Larsson (808) 756-3034

Creating Sustainable Communities-"Zombie Apocalypse"

We’ve received a request from the Imiloa Astronomy Center to please provide contacts or help reach out to people who are involved in creating sustainable communities or unique systems, equipment, etc. that are geared toward self-sustainability (like bicycle-powered washing

machines, etc.). They are having some educational events this October with the theme of "Zombie Apocalypse" – the idea being that they want to share innovative, cool ways people are working toward self-sustainability on the island. Anyhow – this could be a great way to raise more awareness throughout Puna about what your communities

are up to, what the Hawaii Sustainable Community Alliance is pushing for, etc.

If you’re interested, or if you know of anyone out there who has created cool prototypes of any sustainable contraptions they might be interested in sharing, etc., please contact or have them contact Craig Mitchel asap at cmitchell 969-9720.

Dances of Universal Peace (aka Sufi Dancing) At Polestar!

Come join with us in prayer, song and dance on this very powerful weekend according to the Mayan calendar, when Comet Elenin is coming close to earth. Many people around the world are joining in prayer and intention to bring light to our planet. Saturday, Sept 24th at 7:00pm at Polestar Community.

Dances of Universal Peace (Sufi dances) are easily learned spiritual folk dances from all traditions, with gentle, simple movements that even "non-dancers" can greatly enjoy. There is a natural joy in moving and singing together, and many dances include eye contact and hugs with the other dancers.

We emphasize interfaith spirituality, so we do a selection from many traditions, such as Hawaiian, Native American, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, etc. Singing sacred, ancient phrases creates a full body healing vibration, and when conscious movement is added, these become powerful spiritual practices.

Each dance will be fully taught, no experience is necessary. These are interactive and participatory, not a performance. LIve music! Donations are welcome! $5-7 suggested, not required.

Sacred Pampering Puja
facilitated by Amara Karuna
Sat Sept 17th, 7-9:30 pm
Location: Leilani Estates

I changed this to a one evening event, to make it easier to attend.
Would you love to receive massage, cuddling, and loving compassionate listening from members of the complimentary gender? Would you enjoy being honored as the Divine Being that you are, dancing with someone fully engaged, being fed delicious treats and generally being pampered for an hour?

And would you also enjoy giving others this kind of relaxing, safe enjoyment, in a way that invokes your own inner priest or priestess?

We can do a lot to help each other feel happy and nurtured in this sensual, yet non-sexual event.
Our pampering practices will be Massage, Compassionate Listening as they share whatever is in their heart, Cuddles or cradling as the receiver wishes, Head Pampering (hairbrushing, head or face massage, or eye gazing) as the receiver wishes, and contact improv dancing to lovely music. and sensory meditations (with smells, tastes, skin sensations, sounds) as the person lays blindfolded.

We will end with a general cuddle time in one group. Instruction will be given to help you be clear with what you do and don’t want in terms of touch and pampering. The receiver is always in charge.

Please bring some finger food like cut up fruit, nuts, crackers, chocolate. Please bring a hairbrush for yourself if you want your hair brushed. Bring massage oil and a sarong.

Limited Space! Reserve your spot now! Pre-registration required.

Could God use an MRI to decide who may enter heaven’s gates or determine who is already there?

Perception, knowledge and what is real
Emotions, feelings, and the limbic system
The self
Happiness and Wellbeing

Moving Planet at SPACE Market: September 24, 2011

Moving Planet will be a day to put our demands for climate action into

motion-marching, biking, skating-calling for the world to go beyond fossil

fuels.It is a collaborative effort of many organizations, movements, and

individuals. Organizations and local movements are encouraged to take this

day and idea and put forward what you’re able to make this day as powerful as possible around the world.

The goal is to get moving beyond fossil fuels-both symbolically by pouring

into the streets in the thousands on foot, bicycle and other means of

sustainable movement, and politically by bringing powerful demands to our

leaders that day to move beyond fossil fuels to a 350ppm world.

S.P.A.C.E. Market is showing its support by encouraging our market

participants to walk or ride a bicycle to market on Saturday, September24! Whether near or far, we ask that you please, please avoid the use of

fossil fuel on this day. Organize a hike or group bike-ride from your

neighborhood. Vendors whose vehicles aren’t jammed with goods for market sales, consider carpooling together, or bring a S.P.A.C.E. shopper or

three who live in your neighborhood with you to market! Prize drawings

will be held including all vendors and customers who participate. There

will also be an opportunity to measure your own carbon footprint and

information on what you can do to help demand fossil fuel use reduction

locally, statewide and nationally.

New Classes!

Aikido. Thursday 6pm-7pm. Aikido is a beautiful, flowing Japanese

martial art that focuses on creating a flawless connection with your own

and your opponent’s mind and body to achieve true victory. Most attacks

are derived from sword fighting. Grabs and open-handed blows are

prevalent. Defenses make use of the opponent’s momentum, direction of

attach, and body mechanics and often look circular, mostly ending in

throws, arm- or wrist-locks. Aikido philosophy states that true victory

means winning against your own weakness and achieving harmony with the people and the world. Training aikido will improve your posture, body

coordination, and confidence. You will learn skills useful for self

defense, reducing stress levels, controlling your temper, and solving

problems in everyday life. Cost $7.

Swing Dance. Friday 7:30pm – 9:00pm. If you ever wanted to dance like

Fred Astair…well, we can’t promise you’ll learn that, but we DO promise to

teach you this:

– How to listen to the music and do what it asks of your body.

– How to get a good connection with your partner, lead and follow well.

– Basic (and later more advanced) Lindy Hop steps for couple dancing.

– Jazz steps for individual dancing – if you’re a juggler, prop

manipulator or anything related, this will add a whole new flavor to your

performance! Cost $7

Ongoing Class Schedule:

Monday and Wednesdays 2:45pm – 4:45pm Hiccup Circus for kids(ages 7+) $3

If you are an instructor and would like to hold classes at SPACE, please

Course Inspiration
"Aloha ‘Aina" is Hawaiian for "love of the land", or "to love, respect, and nurture the land." As human beings now facing a time of great environmental and social transformation, we believe that it is through this spirit of reconnecting to ourselves, to our communities, and to the Earth with a spirit of love and care that we will renew and restore a healthy balance of human beings living in harmony with each other and their natural environment. We are inspired and grateful to be offering this holistic permaculture design intensive to the greater Island Community to further empower and synergize our efforts of personal, ecological, and social regeneration.
Course Description
The Aloha ‘Aina Holistic Permaculture Design Course will include the standard 72-hour permaculture design curriculum based upon the original Mollison and Holmgren ideas and design philosophies published in The Permaculture Designer’s Manual, as well as be a nourishing retreat and hands-on immersion experience of sustainable living ecovillage design. In addition to the standard permaculture design certification curriculum, we recognize permaculture as an expanding, holistic design philosophy encompassing many fields. Accordingly, this permaculture design course will include and integrate additional content and activities such as nature awareness, indigenous wisdom, embodiment practices, inner work, group process, ecovillage design, hands-on, and more. With a focus on tending the inner, outer, and community landscapes… course participants will work with each other and local community residents on tangible design project scenarios to implement positive transformation within themselves and in the local community.
What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic design philosophy described as the art and science of creating community ecosystems in which plants, animals, human beings, and all forms of ecological diversity interact to produce a prolific, ecologically-sound, and regenerative system that can support itself and life indefinitely. The focus of permaculture is to design and establish societal systems that provide for humanity’s material and non-material needs including food, water, shelter, energy, and health in a way that is symbiotic and synergistic with the Earth’s natural ecosystems. More recently permaculture is incorporating an ever-growing landscape of diverse fields and skill sets and is being applied towards areas such as business, government, economics, group process, social systems, and inner work.

Certification Applicability
Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a Permaculture Design Certificate. Design Certification is applicable towards Gaia University Degree Programs.

Developing a culture of inclusion and equality, reaching consent as a whole group, and being empowered to act swiftly and decisively are benchmarks of success for any organization, project, or community. Dynamic Governance is a proven approach that builds trust, inspires participation, and allows cohesive teams to effectively get results within their own sphere, while supporting the broader goals and success of the entire organization.
