We have been blessed here at Dragonfly to have everything running extremely
smoothly. All kinds of good news and fun photos

you all up to date on the latest developments here.
IMPROVEMENTS NOW COMPLETED
||From the new concrete entrance, to
every floor in the house, we have revamped the whole place. Those
of you who asked how we did the brown paper bag floor (note photo)
can go to the recipe in Dragonflyer
#9 online. Having every floor done in this way has given the Dragonfly
a continuity it has never had before.
FAR INFRARED SAUNA IS FAR OUT
Pain relief and improved circulation
are two major
We are proud to offer
our guests our new 4 person sauna. TheraSauna is
the greatest! This new technology vibrates the fat globules and
pushes out toxins—even heavy metal like mercury.
If you are
interested in buying a sauna, I can have it drop shipped to your
home at the lowest price allowable. N.B. TheraSauna gives constant
emission of the far infrared 9.4 micron wave length through pure
ceramic—making them far superior to other saunas, with many
therapeutic reasons to try this comfortable low heat, high
sweat sauna. I previously disliked taking a sauna. Now I use the far infrared
sauna every day! It’s
my preventative medicine insurance policy.
MANY WORKSHOPS IN THE

BLESSED WITH DYNAMITE OHANA
Naya Vera & Phoenix
||I've come to realize
that having a family of friends working together harmoniously, along
with meeting wonderful guests from around the world, is what makes
this business fun and exciting for me. I have been extremely blessed
this year to have the continued support of my dear “brother,” Phoenix.
Soon we hope to record his lovely guitar music and put it up on this
We were fortunate to have Naya Vera
return from Germany this year. GJ, our Dutch webmaster returning

men who are respectful of the feminine.

STORMY NEW YEAR
This year we had some heavy rains and strong winds
starting our new year. The touch of bad weather gave us time to
count our blessings as we prayed for the tsunami victims.
we invited visitors to walk the labyrinth here at Dragonfly, joining
the worldwide labyrinth walk, praying for the victims of the tsunami
as we visualized purifying the water of that area. For those of
you interested in finding a labyrinth near you, go to the Labyrinth
Society and click on locations: www.labyrinthsociety.org
Remember from Dragonflyer #7 when
we showed Messages from Water? On Feb. 23 Dr.
Masuru Emoto spoke
in Kona about learning to heal ourselves and the planet through gratitude
and love, prayer and positivity. It was quite an honor to meet this wise
gentleman personally. He is amazingly insightful, inspirational and very
funny. His new book, Hidden
Messages in Water, hit the best seller
list this week!
||All my friends share info about their children. Well,
my “kids” are doing well. Kiki is being her cute self
and has grown her hair back
since we got her wearing her Layers
of Light pet pouch and put her
on the pet mix.
She and Kavika will be celebrating their 10th birthday
this Easter. Baby Makana Lani "heavenly gift" who will
turn 3 in March, loves to play with kukui nuts. But when she tires
just rests beside her relaxed dad with the nut
in her mouth.

"We loved it here..."
Hina, Ames & Jessica of Northern California here wearing their "crowns" made
by Ames said "Our fantasy became reality.
We're going to have this
be our annual reunion adventure."

IS BARBARA REALLY SELLING THE DRAGONFLY
That’s a big question. What is the answer? As most of you know,
I LOVE the
Dragonfly. I’ve spent 30 years crafting this place and I think
it is the Funniest, most love-filled movie in town. When I have quality
ohana (extended family)
assisting me in making the Dragonfly FLY like it is right now—and I
have to worry about all the details, I shine! That is how things continue
being. It’s fulfilling
to my soul and makes me happy. On the other hand, I have been sorting
thru my things and lightening my load, preparing to release attachment—if
it is for the betterment of the Dragonfly—to the right person for the
I am thinking it would be wonderful if someone wants
to franchise the Dragonfly—hiring me as an advisor. Wouldn’t
it be fun to go different places in the world knowing that you will find
clean/comfortable/beautiful accommodations inhabited by other considerate,
interesting, fun people in a place run by loving people who care
about the health of the planet as well as your health and happiness?
That plan needs a strong business oriented leader to pull it off.
FLY LIGHT AND FLY RIGHT
When I went on the Journey of Transformation to Egypt with Jean Houston
in1980, I met a 60 year OLD lady, Hazel Stanley, who said, “Fly
light and fly right.” Now I ARE that 60 year OLD lady saying the
As I clean up my outer space, I am mindful of bringing more integrity
to my inner space--every thought and action. I am constantly dumping
negative thoughts as soon as I realize that they are messing up my inner
peace. I want more space in my life for ALOHA! Each day, I hear myself
speaking with more compassion, caring more deeply for each person I meet,
sharing more love from my heart. I continue to be more and more grateful
of this play of life on earth—grateful for this body I get to
inhabit and care for as long as it works.
MY RECIPE FOR GOOD HEALTH
Since there is no owner’s manual on the body, I have determined for
myself my new policy for my remaining “elder” years. The following
is my personal prescription for myself. We will be refining it for
Rejuvenation Retreat Workshops scheduled
to begin in May.

The True Meaning of Life
"We are visitors on this planet.
We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most.
During that period, we must try to do something good, something
with our lives.
If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the
the true meaning of life."
-H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama
I’m feeling more energetic and I think I’m looking better!
My body seems to be getting firmer and stronger. So I feel like what I
am doing is working. It feels like a full time job,
game! But then, if I don’t take the job, the alternative sucks.
I just got an inspirational email from my childhood friend, Kathleen.
Want to read about the first female African woman to receive the
Nobel Peace Prize? It all started when she planted a
tree in a desert.
