Bonita Domes are sturctures built using Earthbag Technology. The walls are 18" thick (15% cement/85% earth) which provides the thermal mass to keep the buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Principles of dome building=arches, geometry, friction. Elements in building=earth, wind, fire, air. Principles + Elements = Sacred Geometric Earthen Sturctures!!
Come visit our giant sandbox and earthbag sculptures in the desert and experience a sense of comfort, relaxation and rejuvenation. Where the cool winds and starry nights are the best part of the desert magic!!!

I came to Joshua Tree to build my Earth Dome Home and live out my life's work as an artist, teacher and Drum Medicine Woman.
I have 17 years experience in alternative healing arts and crafting drums and sacred instruments for spiritual growth and practices. The earth architecture and geometry of the structures further enhance a lifestyle well being for myself, visitors, guests and clients.
Initially, The Sleep Pods were built for research and development prior to building my dome home. Now visitors coming to Joshua Tree come to Bonita Domes to unplug, immerse in the beauty of the desert and see and feel the magic!
I look forward to hosting in your desert magic experience!
