Kalani Permaculture Series: Bee Biology~ How it Relates to Treatment-Free Preventative Hive Care

1:30pm - 4:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

Many of us know that bees are amazing.  They pollinate flowers and help provide us with delicious fruits and vegetables.  They make yummy honey and pollen, and their hive products can be used to create many beautiful and useful products such candles & salves.

A bee hive is made up of wax cells.  These cells are home to all the baby bees and provide storage for all the pollen, nectar, and honey.  Bees use these wax cells to create the life and food that sustains them.  Just like us, bees need clean food, air, water, and shelter.  By providing them with the basic tools they need to survive they do it very well on their own.

Over many years of interactive learning with honeybees Jen Rasmussen has discovered that there are some basic management techniques that if applied keep bees healthy without the use of treatments.  Many of you may not be aware of the chemicals used in bee hives, that may also be in the honey you consume.  There is another way!

This workshop will help you identify the castes of honeybees, the delicious & amazing products they create, and identify the pests & diseases that could harm them. The focus of this workshop is to offer insight into how bees communicate, why & how they do what they do, and how to use preventive care to protect them from harmful pests & diseases.  We will be working with top bar hives that have been established at Kalani since August 2015.  These hives will demonstrate for us through a hands on learning experience all of their incredible skills and masterful designs.


Jen Rasmussen started learning about bees about eight years ago here on the Big Island.  After a few months working with bees, several pests & diseases made their way to the Big Island.  The learning curve was rough for many bees & their keepers.  Several beekeepers lost their bees and struggled to recover.  At this time Jen Rasmussen began her journey learning how to care for bees with these new pests & diseases without the use of chemical treatments.

Over the years the bees have grown strong and capable of protecting and sustaining their hives.  It may be witnessed at Paradise Nectar Apiaries, even after many losses, the strong bees survive, and create the new hives that will repopulate the apiary.  Jen Rasmussen encourages strong hygienic behavior in the hives and teaches how to provide preventative hive management that will keep the bees healthy and strong.

Trekking Tools for the Serious Consciousness Explorer with Stewart Blackburn

Exploring Consciousness is one of the most exciting things a human can do. There are places you will go beyond anything even Dr. Seuss could have imagined. But there are some tools that every explorer should have under their belt as they charge into the great Mysteries.

In this workshop we will get a grasp on the power of intention. We will investigate the various kinds of imagination. And we will work with the navigation tools of focus and will. This is fun work in the ecstatic realms, but it takes some preparation and skill to do it successfully.

Lucid Dreaming: A Guided Drum Journey Meditation with Stephanie Kusmer

7:30pm - 9:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

The journey begins with a discussion on the idea of Lucid Dreaming and how you can apply this technique yourself. It will continue through rhythm produced by the melodic tank drum tuned to the Key of A to activate Alpha and Theta brainwaves. This creates a deep healing journey into a lucid meditative state helping you to understand the technique and how you can use it yourself.

Meditation and dreams go hand in hand. This guided drum journey will help you practice the art of lucid dreaming to create a calm meditative state not only during the day but also while you are asleep.


Time and Space are one in the same. Stephanie Kusmer creates time through drum circle facilitation, rhythm “play”shops, workshops on raising energetic vibration, drum classes and performances. She creates space through interior design, sustainable living and sacred space consulting. Stephanie combines these skills using rhythm, flow, and awareness to help people shift their consciousness. This manifests healing on a deeper level through the alignment of the Mind, Body and Spirit with the Universal Flow of Energy.

Utilizing her degree in education, 18 years of creating space and working with energy flow as an interior designer and her focus for the past six years studying and teaching African rhythms, drumming technique and other energy healing methods, Stephanie seeks to help empower people to raise their energetic vibration.
