Celebrating the Sacred and Sensual in Hawaii - April 2013

A Women's Rejuvenation Retreat

Celebrate your feminine in the wild nature of Hawaii with Nianna Bray, Lara Catone and a sisterhood of women. Under a great canopy of green you will explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of your life. In the clear blue waters play, rejoice, and come home to yourself. This retreat will open you to your sensuality, give you space to uncover what has inhibited your full-embodied expression and empower your deepest desires. The sacred land of Hawaii will nourish your soul and return you home sweet and whole.  

~ Surrender to an unforgettable week in the rejuvenating
and sacred land of the Big Island, Hawaii ~

Our home for the week, Kalani, is consciously nestled on 120 acres of organic agriculture in a tropical jungle overlooks the spectacular coastline. Enjoy access to their nourishing pool, sauna, and Jacuzzi as well as optional body therapies. Your accommodations include three healthy and delicious meals inspired by local tropical fruits, veggies and fresh fish.  

Quote from their site:
Let nature be your mirror and Kalani be your guide as you discover Hawaii's spectacular interplay of elements: lava fire, pristine waters, abundant gardens, tall mountains, and cool, scented tropical breezes. Come and join in the people celebrating the spirit of aloha!

And we agree, Celebrate you! Celebrate the sacred and sensual in Hawaii.
