A beautiful Pandoran region, unlike most you have seen. Lush tropical plants, there are free plants at the landing, a nice place to unwind.

I created a bento rigged set of three bangle bracelets with two pinkie rings. Please know that because there are five pieces the avatar cost does go up so the secret is when you are adding your clothing choose wisely, shoes, hair and clothing with jewelry the cost naturally goes up. Depending what you wear is what the final avatar cost will be. Free/Full Perms

Iknimaya...beautiful Pandoran region with lush jungle. You can hear the gibbons. We placed free flowers in a box that I created using prims by torturing them into neat shapes. There are beautiful vines that curl and twist with pretty flowers. That is what you see on the log bridge. continuum.outworldz.net:8002:iknimaya
I once was told that nothing ever stays the same except change. We should be constantly changing and adapting to not only ourselves but with our friends too. If we all work each day to improve one little thing for the better, our lives will be enriched in a year, benefiting those we love as well as ourselves.

I gave it a good go but the rigging of the jewelry caused the avatar cost to go up too much. I have decided to pull some of the bento because of complaints about the avatar cost. Before rigging the jewelry is decimated until it loses it's detail, so I am decimating as much as possible. I will keep playing with it until I can get the cost down. Thank you Typhaine.Artez for taking the time to help me perfect the jewelry. It has been a battle because it is such fine details which cost huge on some pieces no matter how much I decimate, or clean up. The other issue is, when clients wear mesh shoes, hair, clothing their avatar cost is up there, then by wearing my jewelry it goes up let's say the same as a pair of shoes, but because the jewelry is usually added last, the jewelry is to blame!! It is all adding to the avatar cost. Back to the drawing board. Thank you for all the support!!

I put in an area for the Bento rigged jewelry. It is located in the foyer to your left.

Thank you FreyaJo8 for giving me inspiration. In the beginning when first learning to create jewelry I asked about rigging. It was suggested to me at the time to not rig because it gave to many issues like the necklace doesn't lay right but instead flops around unrealistically. So with that I shelved the idea of rigging and did not want the added expense of Avastar. So Freya commented that the rings float and don't lay right, so it prompted me to research again to see what is new with rigging. As it turns out there is a kit for Maitreya with mesh hands that are rigged so it is just a matter of placement of ring on model. I have MS so have a very hard time with dexterity and vision so getting it to place just right is the challenge for me but it is a new year with new goals and this is one. I will work hard at trying to get all "new" rings rigged, just please be patient with me :)

The Na'vi people who inhabit Avatar’s planet Pandora are very connected to nature. I came away from the movie feeling touched by the "interconnectedness" of the story which teaches how all living things are connected to one another.
If you already feel a connection with nature the habit of hugging trees, walking barefoot , or dipping your feet in the ocean is a profound respect for nature and life.
In roleplay there are many characters to choose from in the Na’vi Hierarchy, one role in particular the Hawpanyu, or healer utilizes ecotherapy, a natural free and accessible treatment that boosts wellbeing. Healers are the medical experts of the Na'vi. When a Na'vi is sick or wounded in some way, they are tended to by the healers. They are experts on what trees and plants have medicinal purposes and in converting these plants into medicines that can be either taken orally or placed on the skin.
All members of the clan have some knowledge in healing, however there is one skill that is exclusive to the healer class. That skill is called " The flow of healing." It is well known that there is a network of energy that surrounds all living things. A healer is able to tap into this energy, and use themselves as a conductor to turn the energy into a healing force. Not every Na’vi can perfect the Flow of Healing but all are gifted with the art of healing. This effort, however, is not always successful. The success of this is dependent on the seriousness of the injury and the skill of the healer.

We are offering Hawpanyu classes, where we will teach you about the plants of Iknimaya, and their healing properties. We will Roleplay the methods of healing, to teach you the method, or flow of healing.

This process is extremely hard on the healer. The healer can only perform this a limited number of times before they become too exhausted to do anymore. This can include many patients with small wounds, or one patient with a massive wound. The more experience the healer has, the longer they can perform this type of healing. This classification is one of the most respected in the clan. It is also one of the most highly sought after. And it is also one of the most difficult to pass.

We invite you to sign up, classes start January 2021.
