Hawaii, Retreat Two


Please check back for 2019 dates. We are are waiting for Goddess Pele to settle down!

Here's what will happen:

We will be just 200 yards from Kehena Beach, one of the most beautiful black sand beaches in the world. Dolphins and sea turtles can be seen off the beach year-round, making snorkeling and swimming an exciting sight-seeing adventure. In January, whales put on a display which can be seen all along the coast road and from Kehena Beach. 

Our retreat center which will be completely ours and private is in the Puna district, just south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Puna district is home to a colorful community of artists, writers, farmers and free spirits. 

Imagine slowing down and heating up in an extraordinary landscape ranging from rain forests and lava fields to farms blooming with an abundance of papayas, mangos, orchids, pineapples and macadamia nuts.
