"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"

Rather than the frequent comings & goings of our previous reality ... these days the focus is on savoring a cozy home/private creative-spiritual nature-prioritzed preserve ... which still sometimes welcomes new and old friends in various ways.

Our joy, when we share Time/Space now, is in savoring simple, sacred, country-quirky, artistic, gently-focused time with a very intimate number of special individuals where intentions resonate with a mutually win-win. soul-nourishing, sweet, practical, good "fit!"

Yup, we have wayyy simplified!

The Weather!

Neighborhood family of wild pigs have been quite helpful cooperating with our on-going permaculture "Grounds Transformation" project...and, for the first time ever this year, they also managed to bypass our fenced gardens, helping themselves to herbs & vegis! So the creation of a new garden setup that will effectively (& without harm) discourage such future happy pig meals is underway! ;)

We've also been experimenting with things like wild grass & hawaiian medicinal cultivation on some areas of the grounds that used to be lawn, which has had the nice side effect of drawing many more native tropical birds here...yay!

Plus we're 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!

On a land-related note, though the Kilauea pu'u o'o flow has begun in a new area, that area is not near us...but, like the changes being experienced world-wide, we are noticing energetic & climate shifts in our locale.

For example, we recently "enjoyed" a many week sunshiney time of no rain in the rainforest (!)

And we have not particularly enjoyed dialogs with local community "improvement" groups who desire permission to acid-spray everyone's grounds towards eradication of a small, singing tree frog (sacred in puerto rico)...which, since we don't believe in killing & wish to grow organic food here, we have not allowed.

Things like this have led, on the home (ex-retreat) front (for those following our metamorphosis over the past several years!) into our morphing towards what's turning out to be a Wild Nature (& artist) Preserve.

A quiet still-point.

Where loving , rather than so much doing or controlling the elements, now rules.

And really, isn't that a logical next step for spiritual & creative people who value the idea of "intentional community" & "world peace" towards actually becoming more peaceful???

Because it seems like one thing the Earth could use more of these days is just being left alone from even the best-intentioned interferences of Man.

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

So, an experiment is unfolding here on the land that used to be Kulana Artist Sanctuary to see how human desires & nature can coexist...without the latter bending to the point of extinction towards serving the former.

Endangered creatures and plant-life -- including rare Hawaiian medicinals thought by some to be "weeds" -- are finding respite from hunters, toxic pollutants, etc. without having to give up their (wild) freedom here.

It's an unusual priority to hold in a world where making money & accommodating humans has been King...but this is the time of the Divine Feminine (finally) rising, right?

Will keep you posted as our new form of idyllic Garden develops...! :)
