Yoga & Meditation  |   Hiking & Cuisine  |   Periods of Noble Silence


This two-segment retreat is an invitation to immerse ourselves in the healing spirit of Aloha, be inspired by the natural beauty and return to the sacredness of who we are when distractions drop away. You are invited to join either or both segments (pending availability).

Both segments of this retreat will include:

  • Daily sunrise meditation
  • Daily all-levels Vinyasa and Yin Yoga (and/or "Yin-Vin-Yin")
  • Delicious, organic, plant-based meals (gluten-free, dairy-free, mostly vegan, only natural sugars, low salt, etc; organic eggs and chicken or fish will be available.)
  • Optional hiking and exploring
  • Ample free time

This will be a highly personalized semi-private retreat with an intimate group size of no more than 6 people. All activities and yoga practices will be optional.

“Aloha” means “presence of breath” or “breath of life.” The ancient Hawaiians likened the ability to live the spirit of Aloha with attaining spiritual enlightenment. It’s even written into the Hawaiian Statutes: “All citizens and government officials of Hawai`i are obligated by law to conduct themselves in accordance with this law….‘Aloha Spirit’ is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others... In the contemplation and presence of the life force....”


If you are adventurous and free spirited but still enjoy all the amenities of a luxury home, then please join us for this second segment of the Aloha Spirit Retreat!

Our home during this segment will be a beautiful and unique 5-bedroom pole house nestled just above Kealakekua Bay ("Pathway of the Gods") in a quiet, peaceful and tranquil setting within Captain Cook. At this elevation you'll enjoy a comfortable climate and sweeping 180+ degree views of the ocean, Mauna Loa and Kealakekua Bay

Watch breathtaking sunsets from the spacious upper lanai that wraps around the house. 

Just 20 miles south of Kailua-Kona Airport, the location is minutes from an array of activities including horseback riding, hiking, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, dolphin and seasonal whale watching and beaches like Hookena, Manini, Keei, and Kealakekua Bay. Free-time activities will include swimming with spinner dolphins and snorkel one of Hawaii’s best kept secrets, the Captain Cook monument.

Enjoy a variety of tropical fruits and flora grown on the property such as bananas, papayas, lemons, avocados, breadfruit, macadamia, coffee and mangos.

The home was built in 1988 by a physicist and his wife. As a former sailor he and his wife had traveled to many parts of the world, before they chose this spot to build their dream home where they would eventually retire. Being a physicist he was intrigued by the simplicity and structural durability of a pole house. Supported by nine thirty foot tall cedar poles imported from Washington state, this house, unlike traditionally constructed homes, has a more open floor plan allowing for more glass. The main living level perimeter is nearly all glass/view lending a sense of openness to the beautiful surroundings and sweeping views. All of the structural and finish components of the house were hand-crafted on site. The property is a one acre private parcel located in the McCoy Plantation subdivision, once a coffee plantation. Much of the property is still rich with coffee plants and, at certain times of the year, the air is thick with the sweet scent of the blossom.
