So much to say about this transformational experience. For me the Big Island is my jam. I go there often. Experiencing my island with these two beautiful souls and the people they brought together was magical. The retreat center was peaceful and beautiful. The Sunset from our private oasis on the hillside of Kealakekua Bay breathtaking. The food delicious and plentiful with our private chef. It was all I love and needed on my island at that time. Great spirits, yoga, chanting, beaches , water, sun, swimming with the ancient history keepers. Music from the heart with heartfelt souls dancing into the night. Yes it was that good. Lisa B
It was a dream come true! Our lovely, talented hosts, the gorgeous setting, beautiful live music, yoga with chanting, delicious food, and the other guests were all so wonderful! Also loved our darling chef Maria & insight visit with Kumu a wise Hawaiian gentleman.
Amazing trip! My first retreat and I would definitely come back! Great serene location for yoga and views of the bay. If you need some time away from the craziness of life and time to connect with yourself and nature I'd recommend this trip. Annanda & Jaya were amazing integrating music, yoga and coordinating the whale and dolphin trip. Thanks so much. Be sure to rent a car.

A beautiful musical and magical spiritual journey we will remember for a lifetime. Perfect balance of kundalini, music & chants, ceremonies, great vegetarian food, new friends, and exciting adventures. During our whale excursion, we summoned these wonderful great beings with music and drumming. On our first swim, a Momma and baby whale approached us and came eye to eye with us, then offered a high 5 with its fin before cruising back into the wild deep blue from whence they came. Wahe Guru! Lakshmi and Ananda led us to this magical experience. They are great musicians, teachers, guides, and just wonderful people we feel grateful to have gotten to know and become friends with. Hence we are headed to the Guatemala retreat and look forward to another magical journey. Sat Nam, Fez & Kellye

We thoroughly enjoyed our retreat in Hawaii with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda. So much so that we are doing it again! The intimate chanting every evening was a dream come true. The whale excursions were an amazing experience that we will never forget! Waking up with kundalini yoga and the accompanying live music was fantastic. The cacao ceremony was a deeply enriching experience. Our whole family was made to feel very welcome and we created friendships that will last a lifetime. The kirtronica on the last evening was an absolutely blast, heart opening and uplifting! Looking forward to more adventures and much love to Jaya Lakshmi and Amanda. Wahe Guru!

Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda create the most amazing space, whether it’s an Alter of love Weekend or a Hawaii retreat, they truly hold sacred space. The love that they share with the world is incredible. Kirtronica, kundalini Yoga, Music, Chanting, cacao. They bridge so many modalities and tickle your heart of life. You allways leave with a new sense of self, love, and connection. Give Thanks ?
