About this trip
We'll be staying at the beautiful Whale Spirit Sanctuary on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is just a half mile from the famed Kealakekua Bay. This bay is world renowned for spectacular snorkeling and regular visits by pods of spinner dolphins. Please check out this video that was made in 2019 of this same retreat I did with Ananda: https://youtu.be/MZ5c-Ya25Tk
These retreats are so magical and I hope you can join me.
Is this for me?
This retreat will open the door to up close encounters with
Hawaiian spinner dolphins, humpback whales and other magical ocean
creatures. We will be swimming and snorkeling daily together at local bays
and beaches. You don't have to be an expert ocean swimmer
but some experience is helpful so we can have a full experience together.
You can always sit out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sunshine.
Yoga and Chanting
This retreat will also help deepen your love and practice of chanting, bhakti, yoga, and ceremony in a majestic and elevating environment. We will sing and dance our hearts open. We will rejuvenate, relax, and explore yoga as a practice of embodying spirit in a heart opening and devotional way. Through daily meditation and chanting you will refine your perspective of these practices and yourself.
The retreat is open to all people and of all levels of yoga and kirtan experience. Each participant will practice according to their individual needs guided by Jaya Lakshmi. Loving care, attention and support for your experience will always be available. This retreat is truly a gift to yourself!
