About this trip

Imagine arriving at a beautiful permaculture farm that has a stunning temple situated on the North Shore of Maui.  Then 5 days of Kundalini Yoga every morning, as well as afternoon and evening workshops including chanting, dancing, cacao ceremony, singing and mantra.  Could it get better?  Yes! Trips out to the ocean to commune with the humpback whales, dolphins, and world class snorkeling.   Ok, but what about the food? All organic vegetarian food, some of it grown on property.  If this all sounds like where you would like to be, then please join us!

They offer a unique mix of kirtan, healing mantra music, singer/songwriter devotional English songs and Kirtronica (Mantra/Kirtan based electronic dance music). They both sing, play guitar and harmonium, and Ananda plays bansuri flute and Jaya Lakshmi plays keyboard. They are known for their powerful blend of modern and ancient soundscapes that touches the heart and invokes a meditative and connected state. Yoga: Ananda has been a dedicated practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan since 2006. Jaya Lakshmi has regularly practiced and taught yoga since 1996, including Pattabhi-Jois style Ashtanga yoga, Anusara Yoga and most recently Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Cacao Ceremony: They have been holding cacao ceremonies since 2010 and were inspired by a cacao shaman in Guatemala. To date they have held over 100 ceremonies worldwide.

Reviews

I absolutely loved this trip! It combined just the perfect set of elements that truly allowed my spirit to soar into a place of pure bliss. Jaya Laksmi and Ananda are beautiful souls and what is transmitted through their music and teaching is something that touches me deeply. I loved the location at the Sacred Earth Temple. The environment was relaxing and absolutely stunning. The circular space of the temple with windows that showed the most amazing view of land meeting ocean meeting sky soothed my soul and activated my senses. I also loved the crytsalline energy in the space. The meals were amazing and I enjoyed the eating area. The accomodations were perfect for me as I kind of love a little more wild and a little less of the day to day conveniences. It was joyful for me to leave my room and walk to the composting toilet especially in the early morning as it gave me an opportunity to see the star lit sky ... I got to see galaxies I never ever would have seen otherwise. I also enjoyed not having electricity. It was a nice contrast and made me feel closer to the earth. I know the one complaint that I heard from others had to do with the accomodations. I feel if this were more designated spaces for retreat participants to stay then some others would have been more comfortable. However, for me personally, I LOVED my bed, my view, my roomate Janelle and having to walk outdoors to use the bathroom and shower. I truly enjoyed all aspects of this trip! The boat rides were exquisiste, the music blew my heart wide open, the Maui land connects me so deeply with the Earth and Sky; the pure love, wisdom, humbleness and playfulness transmitted by Lakshmi and Ananda was a gift (of course:) and all of the particiapants became soul family almost instantly. I am just so happy that I went on this journey! Love Everlasting!
