Venture to the lush tropical north shore of Maui for an intimate and expansive New Year's Ritual Retreat. More than just a yoga retreat, this program offers deep 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 as they enter 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 an alchemical process that includes yoga, breath work, hammock yoga, sound healing, evening Earth Altar Rituals, 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 most beautiful subtropical Nature environments in the world. Located at a majestic off-the-grid bohemian temple sanctuary that features gorgeous statuary, tropical flowers, 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.
Experience the healing power of yoga and sound. You will begin your day with an amazing two hours program. Your class will begin on the mat with a 45-minute Hatha / Kundalini yoga warm up to the ground, connect with the breath, and open the spine. You will then move into the new technology of the Aerial Yoga Play swings where students from ages 10 to 87 have experienced incredible empowerment and inspiration.
The session completes with a 30 to 45-minute journey into the world of sacred sound and the healing 432 Hertz frequencies of the crystal singing bowls and live music and soundscapes. During the sound meditations, you will embark on specific journeys that may include chakras, organs, energy bodies, astral travel, or other transformational journeys.

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

Our tropical jungle earth temple is private estate surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl and a place that the Hawai’ian royalty received training. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels and highly populated areas, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature then our nature temple will be paradise.
You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature. Our 2.5-acre sanctuary is a living food forest and we we grow all of our herbs, many vegetables, and fruits including pineapples, coconuts, starfruit, bananas, citrus, cherries, cacao, mangos, breadfruit, lychee, papaya, avocado, and passion fruit. Black Swan Temple Maui also has giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers, gardens, and two temple cats. We also grow roses, blue and white lotus flowers, lemon balm, lemongrass, lavender, mamaki, mugwort, ashwagandha, and more that we use to make tinctures, teas, and body scrubs.
The temple is somewhat rustic and does not have air conditioning. Black Swan Temple has very good cell service. The internet is not the strongest everywhere but is available in certain areas. It is recommended that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your time here.
