Gourmet Potluck Luncheon follows service
"This Sunday's talk will be illustrated by power point-supported photos, cartoons, and video clips. While the ongoing lava disaster is a serious matter, with much quite genuine painful loss involved, the unexpected journey is made easier by also noticing the beauty of this rather majestic event, enjoying the humor involved, and celebrating the various unexpected gifts resulting from this experience. Steven's neighborhood was the first to know that Madame Pele was dancing, even before the initial fissures opened just down slope, and has been undergoing huge changes from day to day and week to week as the eruption proceeds. We'll see those changes in the slide show. It is fairly likely that the most dramatic changes are still ahead for Steven's neighborhood. The wisdom of Ernest Holmes and others in the New Thought community, such as members of the Center for Spiritual Living East Hawaii, has been a tremendous source of strength and inspiration throughout this ongoing adventure. Please do come to see and hear some of this shared firsthand and connect with our community as we consider possible futures for ourselves and our beloved Hawai'i island home."
"Today's speaker is a neighbor from the wet side of the island, a member of the Center for Spiritual Living East Hawaii, and a friend & student of the late great Rev. Tag. Before 'retiring' to Hawaii he worked as a scientist and educator in Alaska, Nepal, Ecuador, Indonesia and some other places; he is originally from northern California. During this last ten years in Hawaii, Steven Jacquier has been working on angiostrongyliasis research and prevention, making stained glass windows, and cultivating a 20 acre permaculture farm. That farm and the home on it have turned out to be just three miles upslope from Fissure #8, so life has been even more interesting than usual since the newest steam vents on the planet appeared in the front yard. He is very thankful for the kind hospitality shown in inviting him to speak today, sharing his perspective and New Thoughts on this most recent of life's adventures."
About Vyana (aka Heather) Reynolds
Vyana went to law school to make a difference in the lives of women and girls internationally, focusing on human rights. After selling her law firm almost 20 years later, she moved to Hawai’i to open Mermaid Dreams Bed and Breakfast with her husband, Bud.
Her mermaid sanctuary provided the perfect healing space where Vyana created a 13 Step Program which provides daily spiritual affirmations, nourishing wisdom & inspirational stories.
She has over a decade of training as a priestess in the 13 Moon Mystery School, a spiritual tradition that embodies the Divine Feminine in San Rafael, California. During that time, she has found much fulfillment in enlightenment through play – exploring the mermaid archetype for over 10 years. She created her first international mermaid retreat in 2011. She offers transformational mermaid experiences for women here in Kona. Diving deeper as a water priestess, she also offers sacred bathing and the ancient art of anointing with holy essential oils. Vyana means “conscious touch” in sanscrit.

Did You Know You Have 3 Minds?
Presented by Shantdeep Kaur
with music by Alfredo Gormezano
In the practice of Kundalini Yoga, understanding the Three Minds is a great beginning point in the study of the mind. A lot of people in the world today identify themselves with their minds. “I think therefore I am” is a very common idea. Yet, in the science of Kundalini Yoga, you are not your mind. The mind is your servant. You have to understand it and train it. Each of us has a Negative Mind, to protect and warn us of the dangers in a situation; a Positive Mind, to tell us the opportunities; and a Neutral Mind, to weigh the positive and negative input, and then act in alignment with the soul. In this discussion you'll learn more about each of these minds and simple techniques to balance them.
Shantdeep Kaur began her spiritual journey more than a decade ago, experimenting with various types of yoga, self improvement programs, philosophies and teachings asking herself those soul searching questions we all ask; What is my purpose for being here? Where am I going? How do I get there? She found definitive answers and now generously shares and teaches one of the most powerful tools she discovered while on her journey; Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness. This tool continues to be used as her roadmap for living an authentic and truly happy life. Her personal transformation was so deep and happened so quickly she was inspired to become a certified teacher in order to share the tools of this “sacred science” and its powerful teachings with others and considers teaching Kundalini Yoga an absolute privilege and honor.
