Retreat program overview

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

Rejuvenating yoga: Move more deeply into contact with yourself and your body with Tanmayo’s wonderful Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama classes. Five rejuvenating Yoga classes are offered by Tanmayo during this retreat.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday

"Embodied Compassionate Communication" (ECC) also called "Compassionate Communication" or referred to as "Nonviolent Communication" (NVC):

Here you will enhance your communication skills by incorporating body awareness even more fully into your life. You will be able to understand both yourself and others better by reading your own body signals and those of others.

Some of the body awareness work you will learn includes Gestalt awareness work, Aikido centering movements, subtle breath-work and body reading. This will all be incorporated into your role-playing work using ECC.

This first class in "Embodied Compassionate Communication" will be followed by two other classes during the workshop and then two practice groups. The practice group is where you will be able to bring up specific challenges you may experience in your communication with others. This is done for concrete ways to transform your communication practices into something more emphatic and ultimately successful.

Later classes, we will be incorporating traditional NVC work to enable you to:

  • Practice self-empathy more deeply and more quickly
  • Be able to make requests of others, and yourself, that are do-able and that you can trust
  • Tune into your feelings and needs so that you know more clearly what you really want from yourself and others
  • Communicate your desires in a way that can be more easily heard and understood
  • Understand and empathize with the needs of others
  • Assure others that you have heard and understood them
  • Arrive at win-win agreements much more quickly by empathizing better with yourself and others.

Evenings of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday: Sept 19, 20, and 21

The evenings will be devoted to healing and enjoying our lives through Celebration!

Kirtan ceremony with Adrian and Tanmayo (Thursday):

The first evening will be heart filled singing and chanting with Tanmayo and her talented partner and musician, Adrian.

Sound healing, cacao ceremony and dance (Friday):

You will participate in a very deep and profound meditative sound healing experience and drink Cacao (Cacao Ceremony) that is specially prepared as a sacrament. Following this, you will enjoy an evening DJ led dancing with Maui's renowned Fenyx!

Sufi dances and dances of international peace (Saturday)

Donnie Regalmuto, Maui's popular musician and workshop leader, and Lori Grace will lead us through the beautiful heart-filled Sufi Dances composed by Robert Frey years ago and other Dances of International Peace. These Dances involve singing beautiful songs, connecting heart-to-heart, and tender eye contact.

The itinerary includes:

  • Delicious healthy organic vegetarian meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) in our beautiful dining area
  • Affordable tuition price and affordable accommodation in a very beautiful environment of Hale Akua, a relaxing jungle and ocean environment
  • Kirtan in the evening with the beloved Tanmayo and Adrian

  • Enjoy the eco-retreat facilities; 60’ saltwater lap pool, infra-red sauna, and hot tub overlook 30 miles of untouched Maui coastline
  • Learn or enhance your Compassionate Communication and learn why this is a life-changer, then how to implement it into your everyday life.

Retreat location

Hale Akua Eco-Retreat Center is bathed in ocean trade winds and negative ions from the 150 foot waterfall just below. They are also miles away from the dioxin of sugar cane-burning and residues from gasoline, herbicides and pesticides. Since they are situated in the lush tropical rainforest, they have the perfect location for growing organic vegetables and fruits, alongside with providing a healing environment to Eco-Retreat guests or to anyone else who visits!

Hale Akua is a magical and idyllic place created and designed to provide a natural and supportive environment for groups, couples and individuals to relax, renew, and restore well-being.

They are known for, and pride ourselves on, doing everything possible to make the retreat's participants inner and outer work effective and make each guest’s stay magical.

Their team members are trained in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also known as Compassionate Communication. One of the many ways they aim to strengthen their own team morale, and to hear and address guest’s needs more effectively.

One of their missions to be an international hub for NVC leaders to foster and develop more training and workshops. Hale Akua (“Home of the Divine” in the native Hawaiian language) is an exclusive, intimate, and secluded jungle garden retreat offering wonderful healing retreats in a spectacular natural setting.

Deep thought and consideration was given to the placement and location of every structure at Hale Akua, so as to remain “at-one” with the ’Aina (or Spirit in Hawaiian) of the land, the jungle, and the ocean, with minimal environmental impact and utilize renewable energy methods.
