Nature and Adventure

Awakening Yoga, Shamanic Journey, Meditation & Adventure

Hope Johnson, Jill Walton and Kristen Coyle

This retreat is a playful, intensive and intimate exploration focused on awakening the mind to the Heart’s truth, so that the uniquely creative, happy, powerful and authentic Self may be expressed fully in this Lifetime. We will explore how all relationships reflect our One relationship with Life. Discoveries in this regard can result in immediate and lasting clarity with respect to all personal relationships, physical health, mental well-being, creative outlets, career path, and all other aspects of being human.

About the Facilitator(s)

Hope Johnson:

Hope Johnson is a joyful, playful lover of all, who previously had a “normal” life of discontent, struggle and dis-ease. She facilitates this retreat as an offering to the one Spirit whose only purpose is to restore the mind to its original state of joy and innocence.

 

Hope offers no specific teaching or philosophy. She offers herself, as a local to the Puna area, she facilitates daily group excursions; and she allows the wisdom that comes through Loving have its way with each person on the retreat.

 

Having been through many common forms of delusion, Hope has access to a wealth of experience and insight ready to be shared while on excursions, during meals, by the pool, etc. www.thewaytotheway.com.

Jill Walton 

Jill was born with an intuitive gift and a desire to be of service. At a young age she was sought out as a confidant and adviser. Throughout the years, Jill discovered that everyone had, within themselves, the abilities they needed to resolve their problems.

So she began focusing on helping people uncover their inner wisdom in order to empower them to become masters of their own wellbeing. With deep trust in her Guidance, Jill brings her experience, complete attention, full-bodied focus and keen intuition to every situation.

She offers a loving, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment to foster true and deep sharing. Jill presents new perspectives and possibilities that often open the way to empowerment, change, renewal, and inspiration.

Kristen Coyle

From a young age Kristen has been a gifted empath and pursued a deeper connection with Source through nature, movement, dance, art, and relating. She started practicing yoga and traveling in 1992. It was on a journey hitch hiking through Mexico, when she found herself standing on her head with a few Kora Indiginistas, that she recognized the power of yoga to connect people worldwide. This awakened in her the desire to facilitate healing in any way that moved through her.

Her main focus in life became practicing and living her yoga, travelling, and connecting with people from all cultures on a heart level. These experiences have transformed her life and elevated her yoga teaching from asana based experiences to Transformational Flow.

This approach allows students of all levels of experience and from all traditions to build their own authentic Yoga practice.

“My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes. Through my many travels to Hawaii, I have had the opportunity to discover the magic of the Polynesian Islands and peoples. In essence the spirit of the islands is "Aloha", which means to be kind, nurturing and loving to yourself, to others and to the planet.”

The creation of "`Ohana Yoga" comes from blending this 'magic' and 'spirit' into her own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".

Kent Cuthbert

Kent has a lifelong passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. From participating in sports from an early age right up to competing in 5 Ironman Triathlon events Kent has continued to find reasons to be outside.

Painting in Paradise

Lino Laure

June 25, 2014 - June 29, 2014

Painting in Paradise Lino Laure Hawaii FlyerIf youʼve ever wanted to learn how to paint nature and in nature, then I invite you to come and enjoy a retreat of creating and relaxing on the Big Island of Hawaii.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lino Laure

Lino LaureLino has been painting close to 20 years.  Graduating from Cal Poly, Pomona, California in 1989, Lino received a bachelors degree in Liberal Arts with a minor in Education. Years after college, Lino moved to the Bay Area, San Francisco to continue his studies with his spiritual teacher in the arts of yoga and other spiritual disciplines. On a break from his studies, he took his first trip to France and it was from that initial trip that Lino discovered his natural ability to paint and create beautiful works of art. From then on, he was hooked on painting...and yoga, meditation and painting became his love.

While in the Bay Area, Lino was a member of the San Francisco Artistʼs Guild and, for a period of time, he mentored with Ann Hogle, a good friendʼs mother and renowned, award-winning, California landscape painter.

In 2003, Lino moved to Hawaii where he continued to paint while also pursuing interests in yoga and meditation. Falling in love with Hawaii, with its landscapes and seascapes abound, Lino painted prolifically and sold his artwork in two galleries in Kona, Hawaii. He now lives at Kalani, a retreat center on the Big Island, where he teaches a variety of workshops and classes.
