Hui Ho’olana lodge, cabins & pool sit on a ridge at 1100 feet offering panoramic views of Molokai, Lanai, Oahu, the Pacific Ocean, and the most stars you’ve probably ever seen in your life.
Hui is a Hawaiian word for "group" & Ho'olana refers to “inspiration that floats up from within the heart.”
You will be surrounded by a beautifully secluded, living sanctuary of reforested lands that uses native Hawaiian plants over 70 acres to create spaces cherished by wildlife & people alike.
Aloha. Your 7 day-retreat will place you on Molokai, "the heart chakra of Hawai’i." In this islands, "when we say, Aloha, we are saying, "come share our space, come share our breath."
The spirit of the island slows you down, so you can be open to the wisdom of the inner & outer life, to unleash & unlock your greatest potential.
Be in your body. Centering in Presence, yoga, meditation, breath practice, and tai chi-style movement are embodied awareness practices woven throughout the time to awaken your senses so that you can feel yourself fully and are directed back to your own truth.
Ample time is provided to enjoy the farm-to-table food, go for quiet walking, easy hiking, take swim in the pool, book a private sound healing session or get a massage , as well as a full integration day to explore the island.
Aligning body, mind & vital life force. This retreat fulfills a dream to design a gathering in which "the conditions are set & the practices are met."
Medicine Woman gina Breedlove initiates our time together with exactly that. A group sound healing session begins our work together.
Her offering of Sound Medicine is rooted in Love and guided by Grace. This is potent, powerful energy work particular to each individual, and one can expect instruction for self care, releasing destructive patterns, and an invitation to begin (or deepen) a daily active practice of living with an open heart.
gina will teach you how to use the sound of your voice to bring your focus to the present moment, where life is happening.
Potent embodiment practices help you bridge training of the heart-mind with action of the body-mind.
Go way beyond mind-only exercises that leave habit-patterns of ancestral, generational and day-to-day stress and anxiety that are stored in the body intact.
Learn an approach to a world-renowned martial art that Master Trainer angel Kyodo williams re-imagined specifically to repair the disconnect between wielding booth power + love that causes you to deny your genius and fritter away your joy.
You'll take away an insightful assessment and capacity-building practice that will drop you into direct relationship with how you use your power in the world.
Ample time for reflection, journaling, and expressing yourself through various modalities of art & communication happens individually and collectively.
A day to explore the island or simply enjoy time to yourself in one the hammocks at the Hui is part of your process of integrating the deep work, with the sacred land and your spirit.
There's no hurry: you're on Molokai time.
We appreciate your interest in doing the work to unite power & love.

We need to make shifts at the cellular level. Deeper healing, greater equanimity & increased capacity, all begin with cultivating a liberated life. That isn't some kind of get something-for-nothing bypass reality state of denial. That's when you put the work in with guidance, support, community and a loving push into the places that by yourself, you've not yet been able to go, but you know it is time.
This place is for you IF YOU...
You’re in the wrong place if you…
'Ohana is a Hawaiian word translated as intentional family. It reaches beyond the boundaries of blood and touches deeply into the heart of what it means to see and be seen.
Come queer, black, timid, fat, uncertain, male, Type A, exhausted, a fixer, on your second life, white, or mixed in all the ways. But come vulnerable and curious and we're ready for you.
It goes without saying that spending an undistracted week bringing your vulnerability to the table, held by the power of ancient lands, the spirit of intention, and witnessed by new people that are also walking the path of being and becoming, creates more than ordinary friends. You walk together. You become family.
And you are welcome.

"The part of me that did not want to live is now healed, and present - no more plexiglass shield separating me from the world. What a feeling."
