Recently a Heiau was discovered on the land by an energy worker visiting here. A Heiau is an ancient Hawaiian temple where people would make offerings, heal the sick, pray etc. Diana, the woman who discovered the Heiau has been downloading its history for the last week and discovered it was used by woman as a place to gather and be during their moon times. Today eight of us woman held a circle at the Heiau to sing, sit and just BE. We made crowns made of tea leaves and blue jade vines. We offered food and flowers as a gift of Gratiude and honored of all those who gathered there long ago. One woman even offered her locks of hair. I am continually humbled by the beauty and life of this island.
