At the Mountain Advanced Retreat, we slow down and focus on:

• Ho’olohe – Deep Listening
• Ho’omālamalama – Deep nurturing and restoration
• Ho’omaluhia – Cultivating peace within ourselves and in our relationships 
• Aho – Deepening breath-work and its support of our life and practice
• ‘Ike – Bringing awareness to our perspective and how it influences life
• Po – Delving into the great mystery of who we are through dreams, meditation and journeys
• Pule – Bringing intention, chant and prayer into our sessions and life

The vast landscape, nature and the sacred space of the workshop will support you to connect with your heart’s purpose, your soul’s intent and your unique gifts and abilities.

Sacred Lomi students, practitioners and teachers will gather together to delve deeply into the essence of Sacred Lomi®, ho’oponopono and inner transformation. 

This once-a-year event is the only opportunity for students who have successfully completed our Home Study Course to attend one of our Advanced Lomilomi Retreats!

When a large group of light bearers gather –  magic happens!

“I felt so filled by every soul’s presence (whether there in the physical or not!) and so strengthened and supported to just “BE”! Such joy in my heart for this journey! I am aware of the process of integrating this new growth into my life in each moment, and how Aloha can always take me to that place of abiding joy! I hold you all in my heart, GRATEFULLY! Flying with you in spirit! ALOHA”  Leilani, D.
