Meet Your Tribe
We are a network of diverse people focused on personal development and growth.
And a woman-owned and operated retreat center and hospitality business.
Our mission is to re-connect with ourselves, others, and the Earth.
Our central home is an eco-village in the Puna district on the southeastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii.
If you need a break from the city, this is the place for you! It is a sanctuary away from the noise and stimulus of the modern world. You will love having the space and setting to unwind in nature. Have the freedom to slow down enough to connect with yourself, or with others on the property, whichever you choose.
This is a residential community and farm. We tend to have 15-20 people on site, sometimes more, sometimes less. We have a combination of core staff, volunteers, renters for a month plus, and short term guests. A lot of people here are focused on personal development and growth in their area of choosing (we don’t follow any dogma, but rather support exploration and open discussion). Folks are welcome to participate in the community vibrations or do their own thing.
We have an incredible yoga shala and a great chemical-free (and clothing optional) spa area (pool/hot tub/cold plunge). There is consistent WiFi and co-working spaces. We are located off the red road and walking distance to the ocean (you can often hear it from the rooms!).
You will stay in a private bedroom or cabin with a comfortable, queen size bed. It is simple but also clean and quiet, and we are proud of our recent renovations and artistic flooring. Quiet hours from 9pm to 9am help everyone rest. Get better sleep then you have in a month during your stay!
Spacious all gender bathroom facilities with a view overlooking the orchard. There is an opportunity to join yoga, meditation, dance and other community classes/events at your choice. Organic food from the land includes: papaya, citrus, coconut, pineapple, mango, greens and many exotic fruits plus staple dry goods, coffee/tea, etc. Laundry included (washer and dryer and clothesline).
We have community agreements based on the values of self-responsibiity, integrity, empowered direct communication, sobriety, self-development, conservation, clothing-optional, sex-positive, non-violence, and humor. Happy to discuss more in detail!
Our red road is one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world. Travel it by walking, driving, or biking. Gated, secure parking. Mail delivery from UPS, FedEx, Amazon Prime, and secure letter and parcel boxes for US mail.
Other Things To Note
Kitchen use and meals are an additional charge. You can either go to local farmer’s markets and the variety of restaurants and stores in artistic Pāhoa town 20 minutes away. Or, you can be part of our community food plan, which includes prepared dinner Monday through Saturday and self-serve breakfast and lunch. If not on the community meal plan, you can access the serving lanai which has tea, coffee, and a leftover fridge, but there will be no kitchen access.
There are absolutely no drugs or alcohol on site. No judgment, if you are going to use mind-altering substances, including ceremonially, please do so off-site.
