|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

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.

|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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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

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

manipulator or anything related, this will add a whole new flavor to your
performance! Cost $7
