INVITING CONNECTION

THE LAND

How do we become the best, clearest, most powerful version of ourselves, with the mind-body, emotional and communication  skills needed to do their best work in the world? How does timeless spiritual practice fit into this? 

New Earth Mandala runs programs worldwide: experiments and adventures in spirituality, embodiment, activism, self actualization, service and more around the world, for people compelled to waking up. To co creating a new way of living together.

On the Big Island of Hawai'i, we have a 15 acre tropical farm and learning center.  

The Big Island (the actual Island of Hawai'i) is the wildest of the Hawaiian Island.  The farm and gardens at New Earth Mandala have a quarter mile of ocean horizon; cacao, mango, banana, avocado, macadamia, starfruit, noni, breadfruit, neem and citrus dotting the land.  We throw a lot of parties here, and sponsor community meals, music nights and healing sessions and ceremonies.  

Join us in one of our global programs, or stop by and visit us at New Earth Hawai'i. 

MISSION

The mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol representing the powers at work in the universe, and the connection between the outer world (the macrocosm) and man's inner world (the microcosm). The mandala is regarded as a place that is set-aside from suffering, a place of nirvana and peace. In spiritual practice, the heart of the mandala is populated by deities and buddhas. In psychology, the mandala represents the dreamer's search for completeness and self-unity, and can help one "to access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious, ultimately assisting the meditator to experience a mystical sense of oneness”.

THE ANIMALS

  • Zebra Dove

    “The Peaceful Dove (Geopelia striata) was introduced to Oahu in 1922, and has since spread to the low elevations of all of the main islands. Their cooing has come to be one of the main bird-songs heard in the Hawaiian Islands in inhabited areas….The males and females look the same (it’s the males that are always “bowing” to the females who seem to patently ignore them).”- HiHort

  • Jungle Cats

    A few semi-domesticated cats, including the fierce and lovable orange headed tabby, hang around the farm. They are mostly shy with newcomers!

  • Saffron Finch

    “Introduced in 1965, saffron finches have expanded to most of Hawaiʻi Island especially in short grassy areas along the coasts and in open lawns. Adults are about 5 ½ inches, yellow in color with some stripes in the chest, black bill, and pink legs. Young birds have some yellow but are mostly gray-brown. Listen for their song as a series of single or double notes with an occasional brief trill.” – Birds of Hawai’i

  • Pua’a (Hawai’ian Boars)

    The omniverous, nocturnal, feral hogs running around Hawaii are descendants of the original pigs Polynesians brought with them to the islands as many as 1200 years ago. Many colorful island pua’a legends are embedded in Hawai’ian culture and traditions, including the traditional pig roast. Natives and locals hunt them.

  • Chickens

    New Earth has it’s own chickens wandering about.  They all have names, and they’re good layers. Not always disciplined layers, we’ve found eggs by the pond and in the woods!  Our favorite rooster eliminates the need for an alarm clock, as he protects the hens.

  • Butterflies

    There are 17 kinds of Butterflies in Hawaii.  How many can you identify at New Earth?
