About this trip

Flexible Dates, Personal Retreats, Offered All Year Round
Immerse yourself in a transformational  rejuvenation retreat in the most lush tropical north shore of Maui,  Hawaii surrounded by waterfalls.   Perhaps you would like to rest, relax, reconnect and  reset?   We are a boutique center and take great care in designing  retreats that are right for our clients needs and intentions.  Your  retreat begins with a delicious gourmet vegetarian supper followed by a  Welcoming and Intention Setting Sacred Sound Healing Ceremony.  Our  daily schedule includes a two hour morning practice of Yoga, Aerial Yoga  Play and Sound Healing daily as the foundation.  You may choose to  detox, loose weight, or just enjoy an incredible gourmet vegetarian  lifestyle meal plan for breakfast and lunch.  Afternoons are open to  journey to some of Maui’s most sacred sights, chill on a beautiful  beach, receive some personal healing sessions or coaching sessions, or if dates  coincide our retreats also include New and Full Moon Ceremonies.

Mystical Alchemy

More than just a yoga retreat, this program offers deep mystical transformation for those on a path of healing, rejuvenation, clarity and empowerment.  The journey begins with a gourmet world fusion plant based supper followed by a welcoming ceremony where guests set their intention and begin their process of metamorphosis entering a safe and healing chrysalis of infinite possibility.  Each day of this retreat builds upon the others starting with an initiation through practices that support the process of dissolving all that is no longer serving.  The next step of the journey is then to activate, reclaim and integrate all parts of the psyche's energy, wisdom and gifts, and to discover the highest next steps and path. This program is a skillfully curated alchemical process that includes yoga, breath work, hammock yoga, sound healing, fire circles and a plant based gourmet vegetarian diet.  Just as powerfully transformative as the practices are, the location offers an amazing opportunity to be immersed in one of the safest subtropical Nature environments in the world.  Located at a majestic mostly off-the-grid bohemian temple sanctuary that features gorgeous statuary, tropical flower, fruit and vegetable gardens, as well as, a spa that is available for unlimited leisurely use.  Also included are two personal private transformational sessions, and there is plenty of time in the afternoons to explore the island, get to the beach and visit waterfalls along the famous Road to Hana just minutes away.

Optional Sessions Included in Packages

  • Access Bars & Energy Healing Session
  • Compassionate Communication & Empathy Skills Coaching
  • Life Coaching and Mentoring

Personal Sessions

Included in this package are 2 personal sessions including the Access Bars, plus one of any other session listed.

Access Bars

The bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head that connect to different aspects of your life. We call all of the points you touch when using this modality “the bars.”

The bars store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that you have ever had about anything.

Every thought, feeling, emotion, idea, attitude, decision or belief that you have fixed in place solidifies the energy and limits your capacity to be generative in that area and to have something different show up in your life with ease.

If you've been trying to change something, but haven't been successful, it's because you have to unlock the polarity and change the energy. Running the bars does this with ease!

The bars, when lightly touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn't allow you to receive. Judgment begins to dissolve from within and is replaced by a sense of ease, peace, and space.

Becoming the Mystical Alchemist

This means learning to get out of your own way! Alchemy is a timeless, sacred art; to create the philosophers’ stone.

The alchemists’ art is to become an instrument for the incarnating thoughts to make itself real in time and space. An awakened consciousness, which, pervades, in-forms and gives rise to all creation.

Non Violent Communication coaching 1-hour session

Learn the basics of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This method is based on the principles of nonviolence - the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.

NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs and that each of our actions is a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.

We are the founders of the Black Swan Temple and the Mystical Alchemy prayerformance group! We offer sacred sound healing, yoga, Aerial Yoga Play, high vibrational plant based cuisine retreats out of our beautiful nature sanctuary in the lush tropical part of Maui, Hawaii!!!


I just attended my 2nd retreat with Heather and Donny at Black Swan Temple, and it was an even more transformational experience than the first time I attended. In short, I feel nourished, supported, and renewed. The lodging, food, hospitality, community, and intentionality of this place is really special. The yoga classes, the private sessions with Heather and Donny, the home cooked plant based meals, the support to visit Mt. Haleakala -- I felt so connected to the aina, the land, and my fellow participants. Grateful for the opportunity to heal. I will definitely be back :)
By Andrea B for 5 Days/4 Nights Oct 11-15 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 18 Oct, 2021
It was excellent and everything I wanted. I wanted a perspective change, a challenge, fun time, good food and wonderful time with me alone and nature. This retreat had it all. Meeting and learning from such accomplished people like Heather and Donny gave me all the action items I need to work on. The Aerial Yoga and inversions were my absolute favorite. I am a first timer to both these and feared I would fall off / make fun of myself. But Heather is an excellent coach, her instructions are very clear, she watches you and corrects you so that you are safe. I had an excellent time and I already have a bunch of friends wanting to do this. Thank you Heather and Donny.
By Priya V for 5 Days/4 Nights Sep 16-20 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 25 Sep, 2021
Magical healing retreat!! This retreat checks all of the boxes: mind, body, and spirit. This is a fantastic place to relax one's mind. The sound healing is a sensory immersive experience that truly opens one's mind to new possibilities! The yoga and aerial yoga are both challenging and restorative. Heather is very clear in the way she teaches the classes. I awoke each morning excited for what was next in the aerial yoga classes. The food provided is delicious, ample, creative and inspiring! Each lunch was unique from the previous day, and the food was aromatic, delicious and satiating. This is a great place to unplug and soothe the soul. The Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat was truly a magical healing experience!
By Lorraine W for 5 Days/4 Nights Sep 16-20 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 23 Sep, 2021
The idyllic setting and the unique accommodations designed to give space to reflect, meditate, and heal, made the yoga sound healing retreat a therapeutic experience. The natural beauty of the place captivated me. I loved rising early to watch the sunrise and going to sleep to the sound of gentle rain caressing the roof. The retreat was thoughtfully organized—the floor and aerial yoga, meals, and the afternoon sessions with Heather and Donny to allow participants to explore Maui. Despite the retreat’s short duration of only five days, I spent two afternoons getting to know Maui and still found time to relax in the hot tub, explore the grounds and draft a couple of poems. We began our sessions with Hatha Yoga moves, ended with aerial yoga, and then closed with a meditation. One of the highlights was that the yoga was done with music (vocals and instruments) in the background—an excellent combination. I was new to aerial yoga and was nervous about inversions, but I pushed through with Heather’s support. The music helped calm me in those moments of anxiety about aerial yoga. The wholesome vegetarian/vegan meals were delectable, and there were always various dishes to choose from. Fresh fruit and vegetables were plentiful. Breakfast also looked delicious (fruit, yogurt granola, whole-grain bread, spreads, etc.), but I only partook of the cuties since I need at least three hours between eating and working out. It was great to meet the phenomenal women participating in the retreat. Meals provided us opportunities for bonding and community building. Overall, I had a positive experience at the Black Swan Temple but wished I had one more day. Five days worked well, but six would have been ideal for me. Heather did mention that longer retreats will be an option soon. Thank you, Heather, and Donny, for providing space and inspiration for my journey of self-discovery at Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreats. Aloha, Lona
By Lona J for 5 Days/4 Nights Aug 23-27 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 06 Sep, 2021
Heather and Donny were great hosts. It was so fun to learn aerial yoga and the entire week was incredibly relaxing and restorative. It was suitable for beginners but even the seasoned yogi would get something new with their unique programming. The sound baths were an entire production- you can listen to samples online- WAY more than I was expecting, and I fell into the deepest of relaxations. The lodging is unique and comfortable and the food was absolutely incredible at every meal!
By Jolie V for 5 Days/4 Nights Aug 9-13 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 17 Aug, 2021
Mahalo Jolie for your kind words and appreciation. We were delighted to host you and your two friends. We appreciate how much you got out of the sound healing at the end of each class, please be sure to sign up for the online version of the retreat, which includes the meditations, yoga videos and other bonuses as well . Sound can be such a powerful medicine. I trust all three of you brought back the magic from the island as well as the spirit of Aloha. Keep up the great work!
