About the Facilitator(s)

Jim BeloffAs always, we have chosen instructors with a proven track record for teaching, engaging their students, AND the ability to present material in a variety of musical genres. (And folks who are just, plain fun!) As we do at the West Coast ‘Ukulele Retreat, we plan to keep the student-to-instructor ratio right around 10 to 1. Here’s who will be there to instruct and inspire you:  Jim Beloff, Dennis Lake, Brad Bordessa, Andy Andrews, and Dave Egan. To offer guest workshops and local insights, we will also be drawing from the significant pool of local Hawai’i Island talent: Robyn Mehealani Kneubuhl, Kona Bob and more. Naturally, there will be more of an emphasis on Hawaiian music and culture than we have at Asilomar and Camp O, but please note that all other musical genres will be well-represented at the Hawai’i Island ‘Ukulele Retreat.

Her days are filled with choreography, training for performance, and studying the human body to ensure that her students and she advance efficiently, safely and happily whether performer or hobbyist!

Awakening Retreat

Hope Johnson, Tigmonk and Jill Walton

October 14, 2013 - October 20, 2013

Through sharing our wisdom, insight & personal experience we intend to arouse the eternal essence of pure Awareness - which leads to Awakening out of the dream of suffering, competition and dis-ease to a new perspective of unbounded creativity, harmonious relations, limitless abundance and profound compassion.

At the Retreat we will Offer:

* Daily Satsang with Tigmonk (tigmonk.com)

* Daily Interactions with Hope Johnson & Experiential Activities to evoke deeper intimacy with the Inner Guru

About the Facilitator(s)

Hope Johnson is a visionary and lover of Life who previously had her own story of personal and global suffering - which manifested as discontent in every aspect of her life.

After Hope began recognizing and applying the insight constantly being offered from beyond the mind, Hope’s life has consistently become, and continues to become a more creative expression in alignment with her heartfelt dreams and desires.

Through sharing the self she has become, the wisdom she has discovered along the way, and her personal experiences - Hope’s presence can arouse the Guru within those who are sincerely seeking to live their authenticity in this lifetime.

Many of the insights that led Hope along her path are freely shared at http://www.thewaytotheway.com/hawaii-retreat .

Tigmonk is a 31 year old modern day Mystic. His greatest joy is in sharing meaningful Insight & Wisdom with small groups of Sincere Individuals who seek a Sacred Truth. His Teachings go beyond mere intellect, and reach deep into the Heart; making it quite clear that real liberation from suffering & conflict, is a journey that begins and ends with our most Sincere Self.

He considers this unfolding to be a Blooming of the Heart; a natural occurrence that stems from a genuine desire to know what is True about the nature of Self & Reality.  He offers this warning to those who dare enter this space of exploration:
"I am here to peek inside the dream and set fire to the illusion of you, so that You might see clearly the nature of the Infinite You.”

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.
