The Invitation

Join us for a one of a kind Community Immersion for the Soul. This deeply experiential gathering is to discover what’s possible in living a life in alignment with our deepest truth and soul’s energy.   An experience immersed in community with others on the journey .  One that opens the heart, nourishes the soul and enlivens our spirit to live more fully, freely and aligned with our values.

This seven day retreat is built to give you an experience of what it’s like to live in alignment with our deeper calling as family and tribe.   A life in a supportive community system.  A life that honors and cultivates the land.  A life that is slow and in harmony with the natural rhythms.  A life that nourishes you to the core.

The retreats will take place at the Sundari Intentional community on our beautiful land overlooking the ocean with access to our gardens, fruit trees and spa. Our retreat is an opportunity to share your time with other retreat participants as well as members of our community. Beautifully catered whole food vegetarian meals are provided as well as lodging and camping options.

If you are like many of us… you might have feelings like:

  • Life just isn’t working for me anymore.
  • Feeling emotionally alone in the journey of being you
  • Disillusionment with the state of the planet and life as it is
  • Complete burn out with work, past ambitions and career aspirations.
  • Deeper yearning for a living community to be supported and thrive in as a human.
  • Soul exploration to unlock the greater sense of self and expression and truth.
  • Unsure of what to do next with you life and how to find the path to address these needs.
  • Curious about living in community in a more intentional and direct way
  • Desire to be more one with the land and nature
  • To live in a values aligned or spiritually oriented community

In our 7 days together we will actively experience:

  • Nature Excursions
  • Indigenous-Hawaiian Led Land and Culture Rituals
  • Community Circles and Communication Best Practices
  • An Introduction to Land Stewardship and Permaculture
  • Activities that Support Human Connection & Authenticity
  • Cultivating stillness and Presence with Yourself and Others
  • Spiritual and Soul Exploration Opportunities
  • Collaborative Projects and Field Trips to Other Communities
  • Shared Time Together in Meals and Meditation

The Daily Flow

Days will begin with a morning meditation and space for movement at our spa as the sun rises followed by breakfast. After that you will be participating in a morning circle to check in with the group and then your first workshop of the day which will cover various aspects of living in harmony with community and the land. We’ll explore group dynamics, creating collective purpose, and get dirty in the garden too!

After lunch together, the afternoons will have space for free time and a second workshop. You can relax and unwind in our peaceful oasis or go on a group (or solo) trip.There are beaches to swim at, forests to hike in and amazing natural places to visit on our ruggedly beautiful island.

In the early evening we will join together for dinner and then have optional trips to local ecstatic dances, a starry visit to our local hot ponds and other local events. During the week you will have opportunity to go the local farmers market, join our Sunday morning Kiirtan and experience the culture of this very special place.

During this week you’ll gain interpersonal skills and gain communication tools that will help you not only to live in community but get along better with coworkers, friends and family. You’ll also get plenty of time to relax and unwind, have nature adventures and gain new friends!
