Beautiful Kauai Aloha Retreat
Fun Activities and Adventures!
September 18th – 23rd 2018
Sept. 18th ~ Tuesday
***5pm – Luau/dinner/entertainment***
Our Aloha retreat begins with a Cocoa ceremony Hawaiian style. Kauai’s very own Danny Hashimoto will prepare us a lavish chocolate and ﬂoral feast for the senses! Enjoy local live Hawaiian entertainment while enjoying a wonderful meal with some traditional Island favorites.
September 19 ~ Wednesday
The Makauwahi Cave Reserve on the South Shore is Hawaii’s largest limestone cave and uniquely preserved archaeological and fossil site. We take a fun, easy hike through acres of restored forest land, dune vegetation and wetland habitat. This adventure is an opportunity to experience the diverse micro-climates of the Island as we wander through a living museum of rare and endangered plants and waterbirds.
On our way out of the caves and onto Mahalepu Beach, we will visit a tortoise rescue farm! See how these gentle giants are helping to restore native plant life on Kauai by simply being present on the land. We ﬁnish our time on the South shore with a dip in the Ocean at Mahalepu Beach.
September 20 ~ Thursday
***Horseback Waterfall Adventure***
I’m so excited to offer this adventure for the ﬁrst time on my retreat! Our day begins at Princeville Stables and horse medicine. This is a 3.5 hour ride through a 2,500 acre working cattle ranch and soak up the breathtaking views of the Makaleha mountain range, as seen in the Jurassic Park movies. We tie up our horses and take a short steep hike down to the private 80 foot Kalihiwai Waterfall! Jump in, cool off, explore the falls as we prepare a delicious picnic-style lunch.
Afterwards, let’s take a trip to Queen’s Bath and walk the lava rocks through tide pools, and to a swimming hole on the edge of the Sea. If conditions are good we can dive in for a swim, or simply enjoy the Sun on our skin while gazing at the beauty around us.
September 21 ~ Friday
***Hindu Temple/Rudraksha Forest***
***Sleeping Giant hike***Drum Circle***
Spend a morning in deep serenity and beauty at Kauai’s Hindu Monestary. This is a wonderful cultural and Spiritual experience on the exquisite grounds of over 300 hundred acres. Meditate under a giant banyan tree, pay homage to Ganesh for the removal of obstacles and attend and optional authentic Puja ceremony inside the Temple.
Later, we walk the Sacred Rudraksa Forest adjacent to the temple. Meet the Blue Marble Seeds and collect your own Rudraksha beads from the forest ﬂoor. This forest is unique as Kauai hosts the only grove in North America.
After, we have an opportunity to take in a 360 deg. view of Kauai atop of Sleeping Giant Mountain and a 1 mi. hike up the trail to the top of the world. In the evening, you are invited to attend a potluck/drum circle at Lydgate Park. We gather right next to the Ocean with a great community (East Side Rhythm Tribe) to drum, food share, socialize and celebrate life on beautiful Kauai.
September 22 ~ Saturday
***Na Pali Coast Morning Snorkel Catamaran Ride***
There really is nothing more stunning than the ancient high cliff walls of the Na Pali Coastline. The catamaran ride is always a favorite day on Kauai. Chase dolphins, watch sea turtles bob in the waves, and enjoy the splendid Na Pali Coastline with mai tai in hand. Here, the boat takes us to a calm bay to drop into the water and swim with the ﬁshes! This is a brunch cruise with yummy cuisine and plenty of aloha from the Blue Dolphin Charter staff. (snorkle gear provided)
September 23 ~ Sunday
***Waterfall Chasing at Ho’opi’i Falls***
Not one, but TWO epic waterfalls just a short hike into the jungle. And wait till you see the “Narnia like” forest we travel through between falls! This is a day of pure play and joy as we conclude our week together.
