Wellness Wave “Awaken to Your Life Intention” Retreat provides a healing space to connect at a deeper level within yourself without the everyday distractions. With limited Wifi and cell phone service, you will be able to “Unplug” and drop into stillnees while experiencing a deep connections with the sounds and smells of the jungle and the magical rain. The “Point” just across the street provides an incredible space for meditation, reflection and sharing. Most importantly, our retreat is about cultivating a sense of community and building lifelong friendships. Our intention as retreat facilitators is to embody an environment of trust, sharing and deeper connection between the participants.
Our event also holds the space to build a bridge and relationship with the Kalani community as we invite all to share in our event Cake celebration at the Lanai where we eat and to celebrate the Fall Equinox, we invite the Kalani Community to join us as community member, Majic, guides into an incredible Fall Equinox Ecstatic Dance Party.
We strongly believe in integrating the local Hawaiian culture and we weave opportunities throughout our agenda to partake in Hula and Lei making classes. In addition, we carve out Wednesday evening as a time to go to Uncle Robert’s Market where you can dance to local energetic Hawaiian music and shop with local vendors. And just across the street you can walk about ten minutes to witness the beautiful black sand and lava rock. If additional adventure calls you, you can create some local excursions, (additional charge and must be coordinated on your own but front office can guide you) to go and hike the local volacano or take a Kalapana Boat Tour and see the live lava flowing into the ocean. This is the ONLY place in the entire World that one can see live lava flowing into the ocean. This can be a transformative experience as you feel the heat on your body from the steam of the lava coming off the top of the water. To witness live lava, flowing from lava rock is a reminder of the power of Pele, the volcano Goddess, and Mother Earth, truly a Sacred and Divine experience.
If you are ready, to go deep and Awaken to Your Life Intention, then THIS is the Retreat for you! There will be “Before” this Retreat and “After” as it will create dynamic life shift.
