“The place of refuge” is a holy place on the big Island. In ancient times, If a law breaker, refugee, or defeated warrior could make it to this place of healing waters he would be absolved. It is an ancient sanctuary of redemption. I was surprised to find it one of the most powerful places I’ve been on planet earth. In a naturally carved pool the waves of the sea continued to fill and cleanse the still water. I sawa such complex interference patterns as the ocean’s waves entered the still pool of water. Here I could feel the healing and restorative power of the the waters.
