Description: Take a fun and informative tour of our land, including our 
organic gardens, alternative building methods, off grid solar system, 
animals and orchards.We are a committed group of people working together 
closely in community, on our 24 acres organic permaculture farm. We 
integrate the social aspects of sustainability into daily life: how to 
live together with honesty, love and peace, and share power and 
leadership.  We do not have one central leader, but instead share the 
cost of the land and the leadership equally.This is a great time to tour 
the landand ask questions about community.

Winter Return of the Light
Tantra Puja*

Where: La'akea Community
When: Saturday, Dec. 13th : 7 - 9:30pm
Cost: $10 - $25
More Info:  Amara Karuna <amara at mindspring.com>

You are invited to join us in celebrating the Light inside ourselves and 
each other, and especially tuning in to the Winter Solstice. Within a 
rich soundscape of lovely music, we will create a safe space for deep 
connection, respectful sensuality, creative movement, play and loving touch.

We focus on deep heart attunement, emotional safety and respect, with 
emphasis on presence and intimacy.

You will connect with friends of both genders in a series of guided 
rituals that encourage you to be fully present as you share eye contact, 
breathing, singing, toning, light massage, meaningful conversation, etc.
We will not focus on a gender bias this time, so we will not need to 
gender balance. People of all sexual preferences are welcome.

Please come dressed up in your finest attire to help you step into your 
own inner regal Divine self, as a God or Goddess, or both! We appreciate 
you arriving a little early, bathed and sober. Also bring pillows or 
fold out pads, or back chairs. If you have rugs or large heavy blankets, 
that would be helpful because it is a wood floor.

*Dances of Universal Peace (Sufi dances)*
*Friday Dec. 19th,*
* 7-9 pm*   Laakea community.

Dances of Universal Peace (Sufi dances) are easily learned spiritual 
folk dances from all traditions, with gentle movements that even 
"non-dancers" can greatly enjoy.  Singing sacred, ancient phrases 
creates a full body healing vibration, and when conscious movement is 
added, these become powerful spiritual practices.  Each dance will be 
fully taught, no experience is necessary.  These are interactive and 
participatory, not a performance.

donation $3 to $10 appreciated    call Amara at 808-982-6755 for more info.
