Māla Farm Community Homespace
Māla Farm Community Homespace
We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. This is the reason Sisterhood Ohana is working in collaboration with existing non-profit foundations on the Big Island proven to be leaders in the current affordable housing crisis that is effecting all of us.
Māla Farm is Community to Elders, Mothers, and Children.
Māla Farm is somewhere where there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats.
Māla Farm Community Homespace is a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.
Community Homespace means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Sisterhood Ohana is the Wisdom of Elders offering One Hand Up to a self-reliant workforce in our very own homespace.
Māla Farm Community Homespace is a healing clinic for women with arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Sisterhood Ohana is rotating Healers through our LoveLiving Wellness Workshops & Retreats.
Māla Farm Community Homespace is someplace where we can be free. Space for women in need to rotate through. Sisterhood Ohana is teaching Yoga, Meditation, Dynamic Therapy, Music, Nutrition, and much more.
The dream of Sisterhood Ohana…
- Create a temple for the spiritual blessing of those in need of safety, healing, and regeneration.
- Ten acres of land where we can offer space to others.
