A Healing Journey of Love, Devotion and Renewal

Hale Akua Eco Farm, Maui, HI

April 19-25, 2019

What does it mean to live with an open-heart? Is it even possible in today’s busy, competitive world? Even if you open your heart, how do you keep it open? What are the obstacles that prevent us from living this way, and how can we learn to overcome them?

We are combining forces with our dear friend Shahn McGuire (see her bio below) for an in-depth exploration of these questions. Join us on this 6-day retreat on the magical island of Maui and discover ways to live from your most authentic and radiant self, from your true, child-like nature - one of joy, fearlessness and love.

Our world can be busy, scary and overwhelming. As we navigate these stressors, we find ourselves using maladaptive ways of coping and being devoted to things that do not serve us. Because these coping skills don’t work, we feel anxious, depressed, busy, overwhelmed and stressed.

During this retreat, we will open our hearts through Bhakti yoga (yoga of devotion), energetic healing workshops and by immersing ourselves in a beautiful and tranquil environment. The retreat center is filled with luscious grounds, a working farm, a waterfall and numerous soaking spots, the perfect setting to foster the peace and stillness from which we can begin again.

Waterfall Views!

We will sing kirtan together, move together and celebrate together to cultivate deeper connections to the divine within each of us. As the connection to our heart deepens, we will then begin to uncover the obstacles that stop us from living this way in our day-to-day lives through hypnotherapy, meditation, energetic hygiene and learning new coping skills. All of this work will be supported the entire time by delicious Ayurvedic cuisine, a beautiful, peaceful environment and the overall beauty and magic of Hawaii.
