This afternoon Walter and I headed to several lovely spots on Maui, including The Sacred Garden of Maliko in Makawao. This healing sanctuary and botanical garden is an oasis for the Courtney Putnams of the world. And perhaps for you, too.
There are two labyrinths, fountains, Buddhas, art, stones with healing messages, tropical plants, and meditative spots tucked away around every corner.
Some day I would love to have a Rising Bird Healing Arts Sanctuary for people to freely roam, meditate, and ultimately find calm and inner peace. It’s always been a dream of mine to have such a space. If I made one, would you come?
Eve Hogan‘s sanctuary in lush upcountry Maui is certainly a healing place and oh my am I inspired.
I believe we all need places of pu’uhonua (a place of refuge). Where do you find pu’uhonua in your life? If you don’t have a place of refuge and safe sanctuary, how might you go about finding it or creating it?
Here’s to finding refuge and sacred spaces, simple or elaborate, right at home or far away, so we may reflect, relax, and find clarity and peace.
