Dreams of Your Soul retreat is a journey of exploring body and soul for the opening of healing, transformation and empowerment. By incorporating the principles of Four Wisdom Traditions (defined by cultural historian Dr. Thomas Berry) and contemporary disciplines, the retreat program is structured with daily classes in several connected themes that are designed as 7 progressive stages for facilitating your inner development. Join us to a transformational adventure at the Big Island where Pele/Mother Earth is still giving birth through her active lava flows. Mauna Kea in Big Island rises 33,476 feet from the depths of the Pacific Ocean floor, it is a natural pyramid with a powerful vibrational field available for the transformation of humanity and YOU. Measuring from base to peak, Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on Earth. This retreat offers an opening to discover the Heaven and Earth inside of YOU through the synergy with the Spirit and a program based on multiple-traditions & disciplines. Come and awaken the powers of SOUND and DANCE in you. The union of the sacred waves and particles emitting from the Cosmos and Goddess Pele/Mother Earth wants to be sung and danced through you! Join our mission to unite the Four Wisdom Traditions: Wisdom of the Indigenous People, Wisdom of Women, Wisdom of Classical Civilizations and Wisdom of Science (psychology will be the retreat's scientific aspect) on our Earth. Let us dream together and remember the ancient future ways of Being and Becoming. We are honored that our special guests Hawaiian medicine man Kalikolehua Kanakele and Maori medicine man Kahu will perform a traditional ceremony and a sweat lodge ceremony for your rite of purification, healing and empowerment.
