Hawaii Retreat- February, 2018

IMG_2766Do you dream of a time of deep relaxation and renewal?  Do you long to enjoy the beauty and peace of nature, to play in the warm sun of a tropical paradise? This retreat offers you all of this and more. The smells, the colors, the sounds and the wildlife all conspire to invite you back into the magical presence of life.

This is an invitation to take time out of your busy schedule to reconnect with yourself and with life. It is a true gift to yourself, and there is no better setting than the Hawaiian Islands, where life makes love to life.

The focus of the retreat is on learning how to show up for whatever life brings in each moment.  In that process, we will give ourselves the gift of silence through the day, and times of exploring together ideas and skills that invite us back into life. We will share both our wisdom and the challenges of learning to quiet our minds and open our hearts.  There will be some meditation.  The emphasis, however, is not on meditation techniques, but rather on using meditation practices to experience each moment of our lives more fully.

The retreat will be held at Hui Ho’olana, a beautiful and consciously stewarded retreat center on the island of Molokai in the Hawaiian Islands.

The retreat price includes your room, meals and retreat fees for 7 days.  Rooms are non-smoking and are shared by 2 to 3 people. Meals are vegetarian plus fresh local fish, cooked and presented buffet style.

Dates and price will be posted in February, 2017.

You will need to make your own travel arrangements.
