The retreat aims at a deep and genuine heart reset in Hawaii, nestled in the last moon-full days of winter, bridging over into the beginning of a hopeful spring. Unearth, reconfigure, and return to the holiness that is your birthright, clearing out the cobwebs of any dormant spaces or places, wrapped in the arms of a powerful land. Unfold your paper-crane heart, and let the power of the Goddesses of Fire and Water, Pele and Namaka, wash away the winter of your bones.
The maximum participants in the group is 12.

The program has been structured to include a daily dose of movement medicine. This incorporates slow flow, Yin and Restorative yoga, accessible to all bodies and all levels of practice. The rituals to be followed include offerings to Pele, fire and water ceremonies, star-gazing, soul-quenching creative acts, sunshine for breakfast, and moon meditations for dessert.
Local adventuring will be arranged to take you around the Big Island, including a visit to Uncle Robert’s Night Market, silent hiking in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, sea turtle observation at Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, a night visit to Pele, swimming with dolphins, hum-drum relaxing beach time, whale watching and other surprising surprises.
Besides these, you get enough time for yourself too. On the heels of a sweet releasing full moon, the week will be all about cultivating delight and planting seeds as you leap over into spring.

The retreat takes place in Naalehu, in the beautiful island of Hawaii. Situated at South Point (Ka’Lae), it is at one of the most remote and sacred areas in Hawaii. The location is just minutes from the world famous Green Sand Beach (at the end of the street) and close to Volcanoes National Park (home of Goddess Pele) among other surprises. Swim with wild dolphins (nai’a) and witness the majestic Humpback Whales play at the end of the road in winter and spring months.
