March 24th to March 30th, 2017
Come & unfold your paper-crane heart
And let the power of the Goddess of Fire, Pele—
And the power of her sister the Water Goddess, Namaka
Wash away the Winter of your bones
ALL THE THINGS:
We're slowing all-the-way-everything-down to create a little more space to dip into some deeper heart-work.
Our days and evenings will be a tender mixture of movement medicine (vinyasa flow, yin and reiki restorative, accessible to all bodies and all levels of practice), ritual (offerings to Pele, fire & water ceremonies, creative exercises, sunshine for breakfast & moon meditations for dessert) plus a little local adventuring around the Big Island.
If what your heart desires most is some time and space to unplug to plug-in, then this might be just the thing.
We'll be calling Earthsong Hawaii Eco-Sanctuary (a rustic, magical off-grid eco-sanctuary located on the Big Island of Hawaii) our home for the week.
The retreat centre is solar-powered (yay for electricity!) so we're able to keep all phones and computers juiced up, but please note that hair dryers can be left at home (think of using the salt-water breeze as a replacement).
There are two flush toilets, one composting toilet and two outdoor bamboo showers—all facilities are accessible by going outside.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
Pricing includes private accommodations, as well as three vegan+vegetarian meals a day (which we'll prepare together, true family-style)—plus all the avocados you can pick, fresh from the trees. Seriously.
The Nitty-Gritty (aka the Finer Details):
The total cost is $1000 USD, per person.
Please note that this does not include: your return flight to Kona, Hawaii; meals, snacks, body work or any other purchases you wish to make during our local adventures around the
Ideally, we'd love a deposit of 50% once you've decided this is a good fit for you, with the balance due by March 1st; payment can be made via a good old-fashioned cheque or PayPal ( add 3% for PP transactions).
If you have any questions, would like more information or your heart is just busting at the seams ready to register, please email Bryonie at firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll receive the finer details.
Lastly, the Sprit of Pele is powerful in the many ways she loves. She can challenge, she can hold—and she has the ability amplify every part of our human experience—like mostly everything, Pele gives us the medicine we need, even if it isn't what we're hoping for, so come heart-prepared, okay?
