Vocal Alchemy Retreat

Malia Kulp

April 14, 2017 - April 18, 2017


Vocal Alchemy with Malia Kulp offers a nurturing, all-inclusive retreat in paradise. A transformational and empowering journey through improvisation with the voice, as well as the body and the spirit. Through vocal improvisation games and exercises, embodiment and breath practices, sound healing and facilitated circles, we connect to ourselves and each other.


Born on the island of Kauai, Malia has grown up alongside of Kalani, as her parents used to dance with the owner. She is thrilled to share this retreat center and the magic of this part of the island with you. The Big Island is the root chakra of the Hawaiian Islands. Where Pele’s fiery lava flow is creating earth. With luck, she will be erupting into the ocean (as she has been recently) during our visit <3  It is a lush, abundant, wet and warm part of the island. And a most fertile spot on earth for this transformational retreat.
