Star Joyce will lead the summer solstice ceremony at New Thought Center this Sunday, as well as the pre-service drumming that precedes it.

Participants are invited to bring drums and rattles if they have them, and come early for the community drumming starting at 9:45.

Star describes her intent for the service as follows.“Recognizing the ceremony in the ‘mundane’ sets my heart aglow. I am honored to share and shine with those who feel inclined. As the summer solstice approaches, I sit with and also ask others, how does your garden grow? The inner garden alongside the outer garden? 


Program & Music



Our shared time together will be a ceremonial journey celebrating the just after peak energies of the sun and the brightest yang period of the year. 

So, let’s witness this energy of striving towards the sun and come together on the 23rd with an awareness of how we may soften into the early days of the lessening light following the tremendous growth we have all no doubt been experiencing. 

Again…how does your garden grow? Outside in the full flush of the sun’s energy and the inner growth of calm shade?”

 Star sees herself as a medicine woman and a person who has been blessed from an early age by a life led by Spirit. 

 “As a medicine woman,” she explains, “I assist others in their soul’s healing and celebration. My job is clear and straightforward - to be myself and share my gifts by creating and holding a safe container for growth and transformation while nurturing an awakening to the sacred nature of life. I carry many tools in my basket, including my voice and the assistance of Master Plant teachers.”

 Star has lived on the Big Island for six years and previously in the mountains of Western North Carolina. She has an extensive background in a wide range of healing arts including massage, qigong, Taoist shamanic healing, Trancedance journeywork and a lifelong immersion in plant medicines. She is also a fabric artist and silk painter, and a maker of plant medicines, including Hawaiian cacao and chocolates.

 In late 2022 Star moved from Puna to make her home in South Kona. In January 2024 she began the physical journey of a establishing a permanent home in the Ka’u district, and has since settled on an off-grid homestead there. Finding the land she would be owned by after four years of holding this in prayer has been a great journey in trust. Having prayed to see through any and all possible limitations to this dream, she was met by a woman whose prayer was to find the right fit for an adjacent property near Naalehu. 

Star offers community ceremony with Master Plant Bobinsana on a regular basis, vocal liberation classes for groups and individuals, and community improv/ prayer singing classes. Her passions are singing, gardening and cultivating rooted relationships with folks who are ready to dance their soul’s work.
