Sacred Big Island TimeSpace Practicing the Hawaiian Art of "Joy-from-Within!"


"A haven of good energy in a place of strong energy, thank you for inviting us into your home. Love it! "

Naomi and Jonathan




"I came looking for an understanding of you and came out understanding myself. Thank you so much for the conversation, the spaces wide open and all that lies in between. (You) gave me a sense of timelessness, and with that a precious glimpse into the person I forgot I was and have always been."

When the angle of "kulana" (cultivating joy-from-within) is correct, angels of the ordinary world sing! :)

From: "Secrets & Mysteries of Hawaii A Call To the Soul"

We have always loved sharing sacred time/space with wonderful people, but these days have transitioned away from the frequent comings & goings of previous eras.

Now the focus is on being more of a cozy, private "Home" and creative-spiritual-wild-nature-prioritzed "Preserve" ... which still sometimes welcomes old and new friends in various ways ... but is no longer any kind of public retreat, accommodations, or "community" space.

What is the same is the energy of special individuals changing/deepening/enhancing their human lives here in a quiet, natural environment, knowing that's an "inside job" we each enjoy having peaceful time and space to focus on...with and around like-hearted others. This energy has been steeped into the atmosphere & land here over many years...and remains.

However, our joy and internal growth and fun, when we share cooperative time/space these days, is in savoring simple, sweet, country-quirky, artistic, gently-focused time now with a very intimate number of special individuals...and only where mutual intentions resonate a win-win, practical, good "fit."

Yup, we have wayyy simplified!

So, dear new or old Kulana friend, please tell us what it is you are seeking these days ... and what you'd like to offer & share ... and let's see if where we're each "at" feels like a beautifully complimentary fit! :)

And once a conversation between us has begun -- whether we choose to share sacred time/space together in person or not -- it would be great if we could bring that dialog to authentic completion ... for this kind of courtesy is part of the new, healthier, less hectic, more clear, and sustainable World we are -- each in our own small, potant ways -- helping, with each action, to co-create! :)

The Weather!

So we are no longer what we have been ... and still in the process of becoming what we will be! :D

Currently more of a quiet Still-Point ... just making art in private retreat or with a few friends ... and practicing being in harmony with nature as it is here on the Big Island of Hawaii, rather than participating in how people -- even here in paradise -- so often try to control or improve on things.

And really, isn't being more loving rather than so focussed on doing a logical next step for the spiritually & creatively inclined who value the idea of "intentional community" & "world peace" ... towards actually becoming and furthering more peace in the world???

Been experimenting with things like letting wild grass & hawaiian medicinal take over some areas that used to be pristine lawn, which has had the nice side effect of drawing more native tropical & endangered birds here...yay!

Neighborhood wild pigs have been helpful with this on-going grounds transformation towards allowing low-growing groundcover to take hold (& thus never having to weedeat again!) ... been calling it our on-going Pig Permaculture Project ... though for the first time ever, some wild pig friends also managed to bypass fenced gardens, helping themselves to herbs & vegis!

So the creation of a new food-growing set-up that will effectively (& without harm) discourage such future happy four-legged meals of carefully cultivated things like perpetual kale (at one time we ate 3 years from the same, ever-replenishing plant!) is underway.

Also trying the planting of pig-proof edibles, like red ginger bushes, the flowers of which make red zinger tea & the leaves of which are peppery delicious in salads. mmm mmm!

Continue not allowing acid-spraying on this land towards eradication of the small, sacred singing tree frog (sacred in puerto rico, considered a "pest" here) that made it to the islands ... along with continuing to be a safe No Hunding zone in support of wild pigs with their spotted piglets we have now enjoyed for several seasons ... all of which has led to this home (ex-mini-rustic-retreat-center) feeling more like an informal Wild Nature & Artist Preserve these days ... which feels right for this time ... since it seems like one thing the Earth could use more of these days is just being left supportively alone from even the best-intentioned (& often backfiring) interferences of Man!

(Perhaps one thing the planet has been trying to tell us with all the climactic changes underway?!)

Though the Kilauea pu'u o'o flow started up in a new part of the island, that area is luckily not near us ... but, like the changes being experienced world-wide, we are noticing general energetic & climate shifts ... like a recent long sunshiney time of No Rain in the rainforest! And occasional very loud thunder & lightning storms!

So, the latest version of this living experiment continues, seeing how human desires & nature can coexist, without the latter bending to the point of extinction towards serving the former ... an unusual priority to hold in a world where making money & accommodating humans has been King ... but this is the time of the Divine rising towards more harmony for all planet-wide, right?

Will keep you posted as our new form of Paradise develops ... :)

As always, contributions & words of support from near and far friends via the donations button above always most welcome and appreciated!

And, as always, anyone spending time in this ever-in-progress environment located on an active volcano in the middle of the Pacific is agreeing to be 100% responsible for their own health, safety, and for the safety of their belongings.

Blessings to you! :)
