The Beautiful Kauai Aloha Retreat
Mahalo Nui for exploring this event on Kauai with me. I am honored to share this sacred space of intention and joy on this Island I love so dearly. Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian chain, 6 million years, and hosts some of the most stunning topography/views in the world. Kauai is truly paradise and the Heart of Lemuria. It is always my pleasure to share her splendor with my guests.
As I write this, we are in the early recovery phases of healing from a devastating storm that flooded most of the North Shore of Kauai. The trauma to the people living here is eclipsed only by the trauma to the environment “we the people” have created through failure to honor the natural brilliance that Mother Nature creates and recreates through Divine Intelligence. It will likely take generations to fully restore what has been destroyed through the massive flood waters. But, when you are a 6 million year old Island, “time” is of no concern. She always heals herself. The question is, are we going to surrender to her intelligence, or not? Nature always, always wins.
I have titled this retreat “The Beautiful, Kauai, Aloha Retreat.”
What does ”Aloha” mean?
This word is so much more than Hello and Goodbye… it is a frequency in which we exist, if we choose, to align ourselves in harmony and unity to God, this land, and to one another. ! The Aloha Spirit is about extending our hands and hearts in service, and for the highest good of others. It is about our Kuleana or “responsibility” to honor ourselves as caretakers of each other and the environment that sustains us.
Aloha is about speaking with the breath of compassion and love. It is similar to the word “Namaste” meaning “The Divine in me blesses and honors the Divine in you.”
L, lokahi, working with unity
O, oia’i’o, truthful honesty
H, ha’aha’a, humility
A, ahonui, patient perseverance
The Aloha Spirit is a way of life. The way of existing in the world.
This retreat will be really, really fun. Joy, is the prime directive of our Soul. Nature, community (common-unity) and acts of service are gateways to expanding into the feeling of Joy that nurtures, renews and sustains our Inner Light. Along with the fun, in the Spirit of Aloha, we will be giving back to this land.
10% of the proceeds collected from your registration for “The Beautiful Kauai, Aloha Retreat” will be donated to Malama Kauai , an Island organization committed to the health and sustainability of the ‘Aina (land) ~ Malama Kauai
We, as a community of visitors on this Island, will be acting in service to her through sustainable food/water/dining choices and acts of service. There is always a beach to clean up somewhere, and I will ask us to spend a bit of our time together thanking the sands for host in us with a trash gathering. We will also be taking part in a mediation for Water/Earth Healing at Dolphin Touch Wellness Center during our time together. These events will be worked into our schedule as we get closer to our retreat date. If there is something you would like to suggest, or offer up in reverence to this land, I am happy to explore more possibilities. “Aloha” is most deeply expressed (IMO) when we come together with open hands and heart in gratitude and service for all we are given by Nature.
Please feel free to reach out to me personally with questions through this site, and I look forward to being in Aloha with you in September.
With waves of love and Aloha,
