A Meditation Retreat Led By Kelly Smith
February 26 - March 3, 2022
Join Kelly Smith E-RYT 500, YACEP and host of the Mindful in Minutes podcast for a 6-day mindfulness meditation retreat and soul journey to find your sacred stillness. Take time to unwind, release, and cultivate your meditation practice through daily meditation sessions, mindful movement, and personal guidance from Kelly from the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui.
Return to the roots of mindfulness with workshops designed to help you build your personal practice, and create sustainable meditation habits that fit your life. Release expectations, challenge yourself and retreat from the external world as you seek your sacred stillness.
Each day you will get the opportunity to enjoy clean chef-prepared meals, have daily meditation sessions and yoga classes led by Kelly. During the day you can enjoy the property’s beautiful views, explore the grounds, or head to the beach just a short walk away. During this escape you will get to explore the highlights of the Big Island, connect with nature through guided hikes, and even experience the magic of a silent, unplugged day. This retreat is welcome to all, and is suitable for all levels of experience.
You'll arrive into Maui International Airport and make your way to our retreat centre (40 mins away) or book transportation through us.
Settle in and join us for dinner and connect with your new friends.
In the evening, we’ll host an Opening Circle and enjoy a Raw Cacao Ceremony to open our hearts, set intentions, meditate and gently move our bodies.
We will be based on a 5.6 acre luxurious retreat centre atop some of Maui's most sacred land offering beautiful views of the north shore and central valley, located between the famous historic plantation towns of Paia and Makawao, with easy access to the best beaches and surf breaks on Maui’s north shore as well as a plethora of offsite adventure and learning experiences.
Our Retreat Centre caters to those seeking experiential learning, personal growth and well-being in a peaceful setting that honors the natural beauty of Upcountry Maui. We will dine at the on-site restaurant, serving farm-to-table nourishing and delicious meals and the on-site spa offers bodywork and massage options as well as private lessons in healing arts practices.
