The Kalana Foundation dba Aloha Healing Women lost their dream retreat due to unscupulous loan that charged almost a 100% in fees at 18% interest. We fought hard for 10 years against this fraud and highway robbery but due to last bad lawyer had to sign over the deed or chance losing at jury trial because our lawyer did not contest a $425,000 judgement on a loan that was for less than $80,000. So we tore down what we built and moved it all.  Fortunately one of our past clients heard of our plight and loaned us $15,000 to purchase an acre of land in Leilani near Pahoa. We are starting all over again. We need to pay off the land loan of course and we need to rebuild. We have plans for an office/teaching/cabin and a three bedroom, three bath cottage.  We will still be doing retreats but also focusing on training programs to teach others what we have be doing since 1999- helping people heal holistically and spiritually. We need to buy building supplies, solar systems, office equipment, and plant trees and gardens. We have helped women from all over the world to become better happier people. join us in our mission to make the world a better place for everyone by teaching the ones that will make it so.

Just when we were ready to apply for our civil engineering permit for our septic system Madam Pele begin an amazing opportunity to learn about life appreciation. She has taken over 600 Homes and created new island and land and urged me to find a safer site for our training center! We should have our plan B soon as we are actively looking for new dids. Our land is still untouched but uninhabitable due to air quality and the uncertainty of a lava inundation.. So we will need to find lava 3 zone land and move all building materials there as this situation is unsustainable.
Mahalo again for all your prayers and support. Aloha Keala

Got in a back hoe so he could clear the middle part so we know what area we are actually dealing with as far as measurements and only sacrificed five little trees... sigh but looking good

Aloha Everyone, You may have been wondering what happened with that building I building? Well the bad news is- we have a AHole for a covenants manager where I live. I needed a permit to build the building to store the materials in. In order to get the permit, I need to move the wood and bring a back hoe in to clear more land to get a civil engineer to sign off on the foundation and then we can get the building permit.. bit of catch 22. SO, someone saw the building I had almost finished and they liked it so much we made a deal. I took the building down, I rebuilt it on their land and for all that work and materials, they paid off the land loan!!!!!! So we are free and clear on that!.. So right now I need help to pay for the back hoe work (clearing the land), a civil engineer plan and then the architect plans and then foundation, after that we're pretty good for a while. Thanks so much for all your continued support and if you're on the Big Island drop by and bring gloves, there's always something to do!!! Aloha Keala
