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

Pahoa Online!
Pahoa Mainstreet Business Association in conjunction with Aloha Business Consulting invite you to take a look at the following link. It is a calendar of events for Pahoa town designed to inform all who want to use it. 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:

Click here to check out Online Calendar!

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.

Aloha Big Island Improv fans,

I am returning to the Big Island next week, and am excited to offer a next series of classes in Comedy Improv and Playback Theatre at the Leilani Community Center.
Several of you have been holding the torch and continuing to meet in my absence, which is fantastic. Excited to hear about it.
Others may be returning to the island and looking to re-connect with the class. We welcome you back.
And maybe there are some newbies who have heard of the fun we have and want to check it out. Take the plunge!

This 5 week series is open to adults, 18 and up, who have already taken some classes with me or bring some experience in a performing art.
For those brand new to this, I hope to offer a beginner’s class in Hilo later this fall (any input on the best where/when for this class is appreciated), so let me know if want info about that.

Here’s the scoop on logistics:

Intermediate Comedy Improv and Playback Theatre Class

Class description: We will review and refine the skills of comedy improv and Playback Theatre, including the abilities to listen deeply, be imaginative and inventive, trust spontaneous choices, and stay in the moment with other players-all while having a great time. Be prepared to laugh, give and receive energy, share stories, and play with others through exercises, games, skits and enactments. If there is interest, the last class could be a showcase for family and friends.

When: 5 Monday afternoons, starting Nov. 7, concluding Dec. 5, 2011
Time: 4-6 pm
Place: Leilani Estates Community Center, 13-3441 Moku St. – Leilani Estates, Puna

by Luna Sophia. 333-9680

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
