April and May 2017 Celebrating 40 years of LIFE well lived at my favorite beach, Makalawena. I’m loving 200 more grey hairs in my hair … which truthfully comes along with tons of wisdom. I’m noticing my skin changing, wrinkles more noticeable, my hands are stronger and aging at the same time, my open perspectives and my wiser choices… I’m loving who I am. I’m deeply grateful for my hard working hands, my heart, my healthy eyes, my breath, my […]

What a moment in history! Have you ever watched a lava-fall (as supposed to a waterfall!)? It’s an amazing exhilarating experience to say the least! The rumbling! The danger! The energy! The force of the liquid lava ! Lacey’s partner kept saying “Wow! I feel alive!” and yes, it was that… feeling alive and so close to creation!, to the birth of new earth, witnessing the ultimate birth! 4am. We walked a couple of miles on a gravel road and […]
Creativity Unleashed Painting retreat with Amber Bonicci Barbara Brown and I teamed up to get the discount and then Alila and I teamed up and got a AIRBNB and Waimea. It all lined up for us all to participate on this retreat. It was challenging and triggering at times and expanding and insightful at times. 50 women, 50 muses. 4 days – from which really only 2 days were for painting… it normally takes me a few months […]
Feb. 12th, 2017 Such reverence to the beauty to the birth to the sensual nature of Nature itself. It was not an easy hike. The Vog was intense, the wind super strong … and we didn’t know for sure we’ll find any Surface flow. We hiked in the lava fields for a long long time to finally meet her. We heard the cracks, the crush… we felt the heat and all of the sudden she opened up… it such a […]
Jan-Feb. 2017 We truly learned the meaning of the word “Ohana” with these wonderful people! They stayed with us for 2 weeks or so and it was such a joy! Nicole was coming to teach African Dance at Banakuma and what started with a just a “couple of days stay”( because Jaco was feeling under the weather after a long flight) it ended up extending beyond .. because of many circumstances that are a bit private to say here but […]
January-Feb. 2017 Once again, we meet with the Banakuma Family for a week of drumming, dancing, singing and relating with wonderful people!

We love this time of the year! Flow fest Our prayer-formance I only took a few photos at the […]
