We are a farming community that comes together to connect in an inspirational, expansive, open, generative, and inclusive way. By joining together in dance we strengthen the bonds of our farming community and create a forum for community building and community announcements.

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form conscious dance space devoted to self-expression, community building & empowerment. Come to move your body, heart, and soul. There are no expectations on how to move. All ages and backgrounds are welcome.

This week's headliner -- MahaDeva !!!

Resident artist, and one of the talents that make Bee Dance possible week after week -- Mahadeva takes dancers on a deep dive through sound waves. He's a Visual and Audio Alchemist with a dynamic style of music. He loves to play for a wide range of people in all atmospheric conditions. His musical styling includes components of Downtempo, Psy Dub, Mid Tempo Trance, Glitch, Shamanic Jungle Sound and Psy Trance. To Mahadeva, music Is the Unifying Force of the Universe!

Hawaiian Sanctuary is proud to present: Plant Aloha, a FREE educational series of sustainable farming classes. Every Thursday morning, from 9:00am until 12:30pm, led by local and visiting experts. Visit our website for more information:  

Thursday, June 13th 2019 - 9:00am-12:30pm
Advanced Composting with Jeremai Cann

Turn farm and home wastes into quality fertilizer partnering with composting worms and black soldier fly larvae (vermicomposting). Discover the F.B.I.s (fungus, bacteria, invertebrates) of composting and how to grow these beneficial microorganisms. Compost tea, Korean natural farming, and traditional Hawaiian methods of composting will also be discussed. This class also includes a tour of Hawaiian Sanctuary's composting systems.

Bio: Known as "Dr. Sustainability" on Oahu, Jeremai Cann is a Jamaican-born islander who was first taught about growing food by his parents on their family land where he learned that water is key to life.   A graduate of the University of Florida, he entered the environmental field professionally in 1996 as an Environmental Compliance Inspector with the Miami-Dade County of Florida.   During this time he gained an avid interest in alternative energy systems and organic agriculture.   Moving to Oahu in 2004, Jeremai kindled his passion for eco-friendly education as a consultant and teacher of renewable energy and sustainability.   Dr. Sustainability now resides in Orchidland, and when not at work on the Farm at Hawaiian Sanctuary, he builds and sells tiny homes and continues to offer his environmental consultation and educational services to island neighbors near and far.

Authentic Relating Games 6/15

What is this!? What are Authentic Relating Games?

Authenticity is acting and speaking in alignment with our inner feelings, desires, and needs-our truth. Authentic Relating (AR) is the practice of bringing our truth into connection with others', so that we can weave a more rich human experience.

Authentic Relating Games are an easy and fun way to introduce AR into daily life. They can help us experience deeper connections, boost empathy, see the world through others' eyes, and understand ourselves better so that we can enjoy life more. The games are fun, highly interactive partner and group exercises that demonstrate and explore AR, and getting to know yourself better while at the same time learning to see and appreciate more about everyone you connect with. These games are NOT board games like 'Chutes & Ladders' or 'Checkers' (they're better ��).

Authentic also means that there is no cookie-cutter mold for how you "should" be or what relating "should look like". Everyone is a complete universe unto themselves, has a unique style, personality, and integrity that is perfectly them, and everyone is perfect and amazing as they are (including in their belief that they aren't.)

Join us for a FUN night of connection! Be the Authentic YOU!
We are limited on how many participants we can comfortably have so please RSVP if you are planning to attend.
Please wear comfortable clothing.
Please plan to arrive early to park and check in. 
Doors will close promptly at 5:00
Suggested donation $15

Location: New Earth Mandala

Lynn, Shine, Patrick, Kana

Rated R | 110 min
Historical Drama
Directed by Trevor Nunn

In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench), lives in contented retirement. Then suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered as she's shockingly arrested by MI5. For Joan has been hiding an incredible past; she is one of the most influential spies in living history... Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Post-war and now working at a top secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible: Would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace? Inspired by an extraordinary true story, Red Joan is the taut and emotional discovery of one woman's sacrifice in the face of incredible circumstances. A woman to whom we perhaps all owe our freedom.
