Premium Kona Coffee Wins International Cupping Competition

Blu Room-Infused Beans “Secret Ingredient” for Buddha’s Sanctuary

Premium Hawaiian Kona coffee Buddha’s Sanctuary LLC, with five farm single estate high mountain brands, earned the highest honors at the recent International Cupping Competition in Paris.

The prestigious contest was hosted by The Agency for the Valorization of Agricultural Products (AVPA), a non-governmental, non-profit organization in Paris. Buddha’s Sanctuary beat out competitors from around the world. In the estate division, one first-place gold medal was awarded to Imagine 100% Kona Coffee while two second-place silver medals were recognized for Kona Gold and Buddha’s Cup estates.

Buddha’s Sanctuary is a family owned and operated business located on Hawaii’s Big Island in the world-renowned Kona coffee district. Owner Christine Coleman built a Blu Room for her employee’s wellness program and then began experimenting with giving her coffee beans a Blu Room session. The winning coffee beans were infused in the Blu Room before roasting. The Blu Room is a patent-pending technology utilizing UV-B light, music and a unique octagon-shaped room to promote optimal healing and relaxation.

Coleman has seen growing interest in “infused” coffee products and began to experiment within her coffee beans. “Some coffee producers are big on infusing coffee with marijuana right now and there is also wine infused with coffee like Apothic brand,” she said. “Our three medal-winning coffees are the first UVB infused coffees in the world.”

“There are more than a thousand farmers and over 300 labels in the Kona District,” said Coleman. “Over the last 16 years, our family has achieved the highest award-winning coffees statewide so we decided to enter internationally.”

Driven by the Barista movements and the intensive promotional campaigns by major brands, consumers are now willing to pay more for a cup of coffee. They also expect a rich gastronomic experience. Unlike specialty coffee events where all the attention is given to the Baristas, the AVPA distinguishes the roasters directly from their countries of origin.

Cupping contests at the regional and international level have raised the standards for coffee production. Certifications and awards now grace package labels to help both retailers and consumers distinguish quality offerings. For the 2018 AVPA international competition in Paris, 117 entries were submitted by competitors from 25 countries all over the world on four continents – South America, Central America, Africa and Asia.

Coffee judges (cuppers) use 800 terms to describe coffee compared to an enologists (winemakers) who use 400 terms to describe wine. Coleman is the eldest Grandchild of the late Julio Gallo of E&J Gallo Winery and has been in agriculture all of her life. “At a young age I learned the importance of the Aina (land) with attention to detail in each and every step of the process. The Blu Room UVB process is the latest in future technologies for all coffee lovers to enjoy now.”

There is still time to order Buddha’s Sanctuary coffee for the holidays at

Buddha’s Sanctuary offers coffee, tea, honey and a vacation retreat at their scenic location at Leleka’ae Waterfalls in the lush forests of Hilo.

Yelm’s award-winning photographer Rory Sagner submitted this photo for National Geographic’s Your Shot story assignment called “Everyday Science.” The submission was an editor “favorite” covered here previously. National Geographic (NatGeo) chose Sagner’s photo Blu Room today along with 15 other finalists from 5906 total submissions from around the world.

Sagner said this when learning of her photo’s selection:
“Needless to say I am absolutely thrilled that this photo was published! Of course it’s wonderful to have one’s work acknowledged, especially when that work is also one’s passion, but the greater meaning for me is in knowing that this will result in so many more people around the world learning about the Blu Room and being able to benefit from it’s amazing effects. I have already been contacted by several people asking about whether there are Blu Rooms in their part of the world!

My deepest gratitude goes out first and foremost to the creator (and now patent holder) of this genius technology, JZ Knight of Yelm, WA., and to my teacher Ramtha, for not only teaching me about ultraviolet blue light healing, but also for showing me how we truly can create our greatest dreams through applying conscious focus and never giving up! I’d also like to thank the amazing staff of the Absolute Health Clinic, home of the West Olympia Blu Room, for asking me to come and photograph both them and the Blu Room for their website. Lastly, I want to thank the National Geographic Your Shot Editors for always providing inspiration, my fellow photographers and friends in our National Geographic Your Shot group on Facebook for their incredible support and invaluable feedback.”

– Rory Sagner’s photo description by NatGeo’s Editor Prasenjeet Yadav:
“This image seems like it’s right out of some sci-fi movie. I love the composition, and the placement of those vertical pillars but more importantly the blue color tone in the frame gives a soothing feel to the image. I also learned something new about the advancements in the medical sector. Lovely image indeed.”

– What is The Templeton Prize?
“The Templeton Prize honors a living person who has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery, or practical works. Established in 1972 by the late Sir John Templeton, the Prize aims, in his words, to identify “entrepreneurs of the spirit”—outstanding individuals who have devoted their talents to expanding our vision of human purpose and ultimate reality. The Prize celebrates no particular faith tradition or notion of God, but rather the quest for progress in humanity’s efforts to comprehend the many and diverse manifestations of the Divine.”

JZ Knight on the unfolding tragedy from ‘Harvey’ – What you and your family can do to be prepared for the future.

– From JZ Knight:
“I am focusing on relief, mercy, & hope for the peoples’ unfolding tragedy in South Texas and Louisiana. Our hearts and prayers are with them.”

– KING-5 TV News in Seattle covered Preparedness all day July 24, 2017.
Ramtha first taught being prepared over 30 years ago that now resonates.

– “Prepare to be on your own in a major Pacific Northwest disaster”
“Why is KING 5 focusing so much on disaster preps? It’s certainly not to scare you. Earlier this year, we began the task of creating a disaster plan – how this station would deliver the news if a major disaster struck the Pacific Northwest.”

The experts say few are ready. And being ready means being able to support yourself, your loved ones, your neighborhood for 2 weeks. Because after a region-wide event, it could take that long for help to come from the rest of the country and world, by Travis Pittman, KING-5 TV News, Seattle.

– JZ Knight on what is a “sovereignist”
In 1986 — in what was then called the Dialogue days, prior to the establishment of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) in 1988 — Ramtha the Enlightened One shared with participants the necessity of preparedness, what he called being “sovereign.” JZ Knight said, “A sovereign person is able to support their life without gambling on banks, the stock market, or paper investments.” These teachings were then considered to be the cause of bringing undue concerns to the public and causing chaos in the marketplace, labeled fear-mongering. Ramtha explained that the then-coming Earth changes (earthquakes, floods, polar ice melt, superstorms) would render government officials unable to help and assist their constituents. The age in which we were then headed required everyone to be able to care for themselves and their families. The world has now come to know the effects of climate change and Mother Nature, with television shows like Doomsday Preppers now commonplace. With KING 5 TV in Seattle covering Preparedness all day on July 24, 2017, this issue has now come home to the awareness of Puget Sound residents.

– These are Ramtha’s Recommendations of Sovereignty
Move out of the cities and away from the water. Acquire as much as you can of the following items in order to be self-sufficient and not dependent upon social or governmental services:
• Food, food, food — as much as you can. Acquire at least two years per person. Grow your own food and put it up (i.e., can your own food) — and even on a small parcel or in a community garden if you live in the cities.
• Own a small parcel of land in a rural area away from the cities.
• Obtain fresh water from a well on land in the country, tested annually for quality, and stored in quantity.
• Nonelectrical tools of all kinds.
• Nonhybrid seeds of all varieties.
• Winter clothes, boots, sturdy shoes.
Note: Ramtha also mentioned in the mid-1980s to have a small amount of gold and silver coins stored — but not stored in a bank vault, which could become inaccessible.

Further, these items are necessities in planning for the future:
• Light source(s), batteries, small solar panel for charging batteries.
• Long-burning candles or oil lamps, plus extra wicks and oil, matches, lighters, and fuel.
• Shortwave emergency radios.
• Extensive first-aid kit, including but not limited to splints, bandages, antibacterial applications, antibiotics, medicine for pain relief (i.e., Excedrin, Tylenol, Advil), stored in a cool, dry, dark place.
• Sewing kit with strengths of various threads, sewing needles.
• Animal pet food and supplies, if you have a pet.
• Stored water, preferably an in-ground water tank.
• Sleeping bags, portable tents.
• Portable stove with fuel.
• Portable toilet.
• Bicycles, fishing gear, knives, portable saws and hand tools, gloves, compass, rucksacks, GPS, compass.
• Medications.

– JZ Knight added, “RSE students are not survivalists. We are sovereignists. We have always been taught to be prepared for anything, to be able to provide and care for ourselves and our families. They could survive anything. I am very proud of this culture of RSE and that our students have heard this message from Ramtha for over 30 years.”

– Ramtha’s teachings on this are published in “Last Waltz of the Tyrants, the Prophecy Revisited”

This destiny — those changes I talked about so long ago in your time — is coming into full manifestation. Go and look at them. What sounds common to you now was uncommon then,” quoting Ramtha.

JZ Knight’s UFO talk featured in Nisqually Valley News

JZ Knight News, Press

“JZ Knight Talks UFOs, Aliens”
“RSE Leader Says UFOs Regularly Fly Over Her Home Just Outside Yelm City Limits”

“Making her second public appearance in two months, JZ Knight opened the gates to the Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment campus for a special event for Yelm’s first UFO Fest.

She was a guest interviewee at the Triad Theater’s Who’s Who in the Nisqually Watershed Mountain to Sea Series hosted by Steve Craig on July 5. The audience consisted mainly of current and past students of RSE, although a show of hands indicated a handful of audience members were new to the campus.

The speech on Saturday [July 29, 2017], hosted in the “Great Hall” on the campus of RSE, began with Knight’s reasoning behind the possible existence of UFOs, aliens and extraterrestrials,” by Andrew Kollar, Nisqually Valley News.

– Published in The Olympian, July 26, 2017:
“Weekend plans have you feeling spaced out? Beam over to Yelm’s first UFO Fest”
“The first Yelm UFO Fest is set to launch this weekend, and organizers are preparing to welcome visitors from beyond. Or at least beyond Yelm.”

“JZ Knight, president of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment in Yelm and known for her claims that she channels a 35,000-year-old warrior spirit named Ramtha, also will speak as part of the festival. Knight’s speech will be held at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, and admission is $50.”

“The festival was organized through a partnership between The Triad Arts Theater, Nisqually Valley News, and Puget Sound Entertainment. Michael Wagar, publisher at Nisqually Valley News, and his friend Steve Craig hatched the idea during a casual conversation. Then offers to help began pouring in.”

“Jayne offered to host — a UFO fest was right up her alley and the Triad could use a fundraiser. Cory Kolilis at Puget Sound Entertainment offered his festival set-up expertise. The City of Yelm was supportive. It was perfect ‘synchronicity,’ as several organizers described it.”

“Jayne hopes that the UFO Fest will provide an opportunity for people of “all walks of life” to come together, dress up in their best alien garb, and celebrate being ‘a little out there.’

‘Yelm is coming out of the closet, baby,’ Jayne said,” by Zoe Sayler, The Olympian.
