KIRPAL MEDITATION AND ECOLOGICAL CENTERKirpal Meditation and Ecological Center is a half mile from the ocean on the eastern tip of the Big Island of Hawaii, approximately seven miles from the small village of Pahoa. The 10-acre ocean-view property is blessed with average daytime temperatures of 85° F year-round, and 65° F at night, with cool, fragrant trade winds, surrounding tropical flora, including old growth mangoes, nearby swimming, surfing and snorkeling in the ocean and natural volcanically heated thermal oceanside pools.
A SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY IN THE CENTER OF HAWAII’S VOLCANIC & NATURAL WONDERS
This property was once a papaya farm and is now newly planted with sour sop, jack fruit, pomegranate, rollinia, variety of bananas, figs, passion fruit, mamey sapote, avocados, papayas, sugar cane, coconut, lilikoi and guava. There are also loquat, cacao, macadamia nut, cashew nut, noni, starfruit, breadfruit, tangelos, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, pomelos and more.
The octagonal Balinese meditation pavilion is set among shade-trees with an expansive view of the ocean. The island wildlife is all around us – a variety of birds by day and at night there’s the pleasant chirping of Coqui frogs – and there are no snakes. Natural wonders include Volcanoes National Park, lava and crater viewing, volcanically heated warm ponds and steam vents (as outdoor saunas) and other wonders of the lush tropics.

Autumn Skye Morrison
The art of Autumn Skye Morrison evokes transcendental realms of joyful mystery. Translucent geometries, totemic animals and dancing patterns of light weave together with ‘heartspeak' script, energy spirals and soulful figures. Her meticulous paintings and attentive art instruction give equal emphasis to creative intuition and skilled technique: “To release judgment, move past our mind, breathe deep into the process, and find bliss in each step; we realize that we are boundlessly assisted in our authentic and heart-centred expression." Well-recognized for her Live Painting skills and captivating visions, her work acts as a bridge between the transformational festival counter-culture and mainstream global awakening. She has been featured at festivals such as Envision (Costa Rica), Beloved (Oregon), Symbiosis (USA), Eclipse (Australia) and Alchemeyez (Hawaii) while also appearing in The Bloom Series documentary, and Vessels of the Divine. Autumn Skye’s works have been exhibited in galleries worldwide, as well as appearing in numerous books, magazines, card decks, and online journals. She has led workshops in Canada and abroad (including Soul Portraits Art Retreat in Costa Rica). “Each creation is an offering: a positive reflection of ourselves and humanity, a celebration of evolving consciousness, an opportunity for healing and deepening, and a vision of a bright future and Now.”See more photos and other events by this presenter
