NEW 360 VIRTUAL TOUR
|Dragonfly was blessed to have a master virtual tour designer, Tom
Merchant, at www.go360media.com, visit from Minnesota. Previously
a photographer for Geo Magazine, Tom is world-famous for the technique
he has developed and he said he had “great fun” making
the tour for Dragonfly. I think the best part of the tour is the
Labyrinth. When you go on the tour, notice that you can go up and
look down at the floor of the labyrinth—like you are suspended
in space. Totally trippy!

DRAGONFLY COTTAGE—PERSONAL HEALTH
I’m in love! with
my new home—the Dragonfly Cottage. In fact,
I am luxuriating in the amazing peace of this private healing space
less than 4 minutes from the Dragonfly. (see map)
It is an adorable, clean, 2 bedroom, bug free house with doors
|| Check it out on the 360 Virtual
Tour.--it’s the last tour on the scroll bar. When I’m
here at this private mini-health spa, I remember to pray, drink
my water, jump on my rebounder, do the infrared sauna, use the
chi machine, take my supplements, watch the sunset, etc.
Dragonfly Cottage even
has high speed internet connection and is wheel chair accessible!
My plan is to take advantage of this private space for my personal
growth whenever it is not being used as a vacation rental. Having
this extra unit 4 minutes from Dragonfly means that workshops can
accommodate groups of about 20.
ANYONE WANT TO PURCHASE THE DRAGONFLY? FOR REAL!
With the new Dragonfly Cottage, I am wiring Life
After Dragonfly. I will continue doing what I love—on a smaller
It feels a bit odd to get the Dragonfly to the place of perfection
I’ve always dreamed of—with wind chimes, stained glass, crystal
chandelier, fountains—and then let go. But I feel it is time for
me to write, teach, retreat, be free of the responsibility of running
Working up to this moment for years, I have released attachment and feel
it is almost time to put Dragonfly on the market. If you are interested,
or know anyone who might like to purchase the Dragonfly in all her glory,
please call me soon. I would prefer direct sale.
WANT TO BE BARBARA’S PARTNER?
My advisors and dreams are telling me to have faith in finding a partner
(or partners) who would like to invest in my projects. Learning to trust
in trustworthy people seems to be part of my spiritual growth.
My dear Hawaiian kahuna friend asked if I know anyone interested in buying
32 beautiful acres near Kealakekua Bay. I told him that I know LOTS of
wonderful folks interested in intentional community—who would be
respectful of his family’s aina. Please let me know if you would
like more information about that or other projects I am working on.
GETTING MORE PERSONAL
I am feeling open to loving a soul mate.
Know a single gentle man who:
1. has impeccable integrity
2. wants to live in Hawaii with a strong-willed, zany (Aunty Mame-type)
3. loves fluffy little dogs (my fur-children)
4. would like to have a mutually respectful, considerate, FUN relationship
5. has a tremendous sense of humor?
I’m not holding my breath about this happening as I am delightfully
happy as a single woman.
Yet...on the chance that it is time for me to embrace a relationship,
feel free to contact me with details if you know a man who may fit my
NEW OXYGENATEGED WATER
of Light now has a structured water from Asia which holds
the M Power frequency that gives balance, improves the immune system,
lowers stress etc.
This high level oxygen water gets into our cells in a unique way—even
into the liver.
Since I got the water last month, my experience with it has been remarkable.
I highly recommend trying it. I learned that the M-power Mix is extremely
important to take at the same time. With the liver flushing out toxins,
the mix is necessary to eliminate the toxins from the intestines. Such
an easy way to clean the liver!

NEW PERSONAL “SOFT” LASER
“Imagine being pain free” my friend wrote
me after I told him about my new Soliton healing laser. Well, I
am not only imagining it—I am doing it! I carry around this
telephone size laser in my purse and I never go to bed without
it. My right hip used to keep me awake at night with pain (especially
in the Winter).
Now I place the laser on my hip for 3 minutes and
the pain goes AWAY! I, and the laser, both go off to sleep. If
you are interested in learning about the new laser, you can go
There is even research coming from Russian doctors that says this Q1000
tool is curing diabetes! You can bet I’m spreading the word about
this remarkable new technology.

RED HAT SOCIETY
Ever heard of this group
of wild and crazy women over 50 who dress up in purple dresses
and red hats and have a ball? Well, I’m officially one of
them. I’m the Queen of the South Kona Red Hatters. I just
returned from a convention in Las Vegas with nearly 6000 other
Red Hatters. All the women were so friendly and fun! If you want
to see just how liberated old women can get, view my photos here.
Or read my full story here.

me in Las Vegas MGM Grand Studio 54.
I must admit that the merriment factor of the group of woman attending
the conference far exceeded my expectations! If you are interested in
joining the Red Hat Society or starting a new chapter, with the purpose
of living a life “full of exuberance,” focusing
on having fun—check out the website www.redhatsociety.com
