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

If you or your organization wishes to add an event, please go the calendar, select the date of your event, and follow instructions. This is a great tool for all to use:

Since we are such a small town, this calendar is intended to assist people and organizations in scheduling events and not overlap other events. 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.

Simple instructions will be provided for those new to meditation.

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.


Wholistic Peer Counseling Training Part 1

with Molly Miller

Come join the growing community in Puna who offer these skills to each other. More than just a support group, this training will teach basic skills for trading wholistic healing, so you can then use them with family and friends. These skills can improve health, relationships, inner peace and can be used to help your friends, children and family throughout life. A wonderful training for anyone involved in health or healing professions, such as massage and bodywork. These skills are largely based on Re-evaluation Counseling (RC), as well as energy and psychic work.
