Jen is hosting a Summer Solstice guided tour of the four cardinal directions of Maui, visiting sacred sites and energy centers at each corner.
This is an all inclusive small group tour for up to 8 guests. Your accommodation will include a shared or private bedroom and bath at a licensed Bed and Breakfast. The fee for this guided tour and retreat is $2160 per person and includes accommodations, all meals, local transportation and excursions. Private guest suites are available for an additional 15% and extended stays can be arranged at an additional cost of $180 per day/per room.
Join Jen for 6 days 5 nights on the island that some have identified as the heart chakra of Mother Earth. Maui is a magical place, the former site of ancient Lemuria and a mecca for many Southern Californians year after year.
Jen first visited this sacred place in 2003 and she immediately felt the energy of the earth ground her root chakra – this place would become a homecoming place for Jen and the location of her retreat center, that is currently being developed.
Day 1(Wednesday) Arrival
When you arrive you will be greeted by the thick aroma of flower essences in the air and a lei of flowers will be placed around your neck.
Upon arrival to your accommodation we will enjoy tea, local organic raw honey and local fruit as we begin our time together by journaling an intention for the retreat. We will drop our mobile phones and devices into the metaphorical sea. At sunset we will be whisked off to a welcoming seaside dinner followed by a walk along the warm South Pacific beaches before returning to your retreat space to settle in.
Day 2 (Thursday) West
We will begin our day with a light breakfast and a drive to the West side of the island for an early morning hike past a sacred Hawaiian burial ground known as Dragon’s Teeth, this is an energy vortex where the sea, earth, fire and air have collided to create magnificent natural monoliths. We will sit in silent contemplation.
We’ll have some free time for shopping, exploring the local galleries in Lahaina and enjoying some Shave Ice (that’s right, present tense – you’re in Maui now).
We will make our way to the Iao Valley where we can hike and swim in the streams of water alongside the local children. We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch before hiking up to a historic buddhist site where we will sit in silent meditation.
As evening approaches we will head down the road to swim with turtles at the beach and dine outside under the trees basking in the last rays of sun dipping into the ocean.
Day 3 (Friday) East
Rise with the sun for yoga and meditation followed by a breakfast that includes local fruit smoothies.
Enjoy the long winding road to Hana where we will stop along the way to enjoy waterfalls and walks into the jungle to soak in the grounding energy of the Nature Elementals.
