Getting to Hawaii – Lomi Lomi Retreat

lomi lomi retreat hawaiiAloha

Sacred Lomi’s 2024 Lomilomi Retreat in Hawaii is held on the Big Island of Hawaii once a year.  This is some information that may be helpful in planning your trip.

It is usually best to arrive on the island of Hawaii for the Retreat a day or two early, just to ‘get there’ and get over jet lag before the retreat begins. Often participants stay for at least a few days after if they can, exploring other parts of the island or even other islands.

The island of Hawaii is the largest of the Hawaiian islands and there is much to explore from Black Sand Beaches to Waipio Valley, the City of Refuge, the Volcano, Lava Tubes, Whales, Dolphins, Turtles, Steam vents and more.  Although Kilauea was extremely active throughout 2018, it is now calmer and the volcanic activity is low. Our retreat is held near Hawi which is on the opposite side of the island from Kilauea. 

This Lomilomi Retreat in Hawaii is a life changing, heart-opening experience.

You can arrive at Hawaii Island Retreat by 3pm on March 5th. 

The check in time at the retreat center is between 3:00pm and 4:30pm the day of the retreat.

Hiking in Hawaii

We will begin at 5pm in the Ocean Front Yoga Room aka Sacred Lomi Temple Space.

We will have dinner about 6:30 that evening.
We hope to see you there in March!

On the last day of the workshop, we will finish our closing circle by noon and then have lunch until about 12:30 pm.

Many Blessings
Tom & Donna
