Whether you opt to do a one day retreat, or a three day retreat, each day will include some or all of the following sessions depending on your needs and preferred scheduling. Our goal is that you release, heal, grow and depart renewed with a practice to further your journey.
Energy Medicine and Ecopsychology
The term “energy medicine” is derived from the ancient indigenous traditions meaning to work with the body’s wisdom and its inherent ability to heal itself. The word, “ecopsychology” comes from ecology—the organic inter-relatedness of all living beings, and our relationship with our Mother the Earth. The root word “psycho” is the Greek word for the soul—we bring the experience of growing the soul into each teaching session. The level and depth of study, participation and transformation is profound as the teachings weave together traditional methods of self-realization with contemporary issues we work with on a daily basis. Energy medicine healings require a commitment to explore deep personal change through spiritual practices, laying-on-of-hands, energy healing techniques and other practices which all supports true lasting change for the individual.
Mana Lomi Massage
Mana Lomi is a traditional form of lomilomi that has been passed down through generations in Hawai’i, honoring the body, mind and spirit of the individual and offering unlimited possibilities in healing. Mana Lomi literally means “the movement of energy.” When used in conjunction with the traditional form of Energy Medicine and Ecopsychology, also passed through hundreds of generations of First Nations culture, the receiver experiences healing “down to the bone,” or the soul level. The outcome, when practitioner and client work in resonance, is peace and new ways of moving forward in one’s life.
The “mana” or sacred energy of the land in the Hawaiian Islands is tangible and Kauai is considered the most powerful to many. Our practitioner will join you on an outward (onto the land) and inward (into your spirit) journey, allowing you to access your soul. While there are many places to choose from, the one pictured here, with a labyrinth beside the sea, is one of our favorites.
Learn to feel the subtle (and not so subtle) energies around you while healing even the worst case of Nature Deficit Disorder.

Are you ready to create your own yoga practice? It may be that you have a ‘working’ knowledge of the postures but are looking for some guidance in constructing a flow. Or perhaps you always wanted to try a yoga class, but feel a little intimidated with the class scenario and just want to establish some basic knowledge. Our Practitioner is here to introduce you to the basics and create a unique personalized ‘homework’ that will find you joining any yoga class with confidence.
The yoga session is a co-creative relationship finding its way through the structures we call asana (postures). Some postures are the classic forms while others ‘appear’ at the moment. The session will be the spring board for your ability to evolve your practice after you return home.
