This yoga retreat will take place at Black Swan Temple Maui in Hawaii, USA. This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl, the resting place of mature souls and a place where Hawaiian royalty received training. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature then this nature temple will be paradise. You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature.

The 2.5-acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit. Black Swan Temple Maui also has giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers, and gardens. Moreover, the temple has gorgeous Indonesian art, statues, and fountains throughout. Black Swan Temple Maui is somewhat rustic and does not have air conditioning.

In general, Black Swan Temple Maui has good cell service, especially for Verizon. With satellite internet which is not the strongest service. It is recommended that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your time here.


Black Swan Temple has simple yet beautifully appointed Balinese cabins as well as a suite with a private bathroom. These cozy cabins are nestled in the tropical garden creating privacy for each. These cabins are somewhat rustic and have a shared bathroom and an outdoor shower. There is a lovely suite also available with its own private bathroom. There are limited satellite Wi-Fi and no television. There is a communal kitchen, office space, and a far infrared sauna that is also available for the guests. Classes and workshops take place in the beautiful sanctuary.


The retreat is all inclusive of gourmet raw food that will tantalize your taste buds, rejuvenate your mind, and allow your body to cleanse without feeling deprived.

For breakfast, you can expect fresh fruit, raw pastries, fresh nut milk, superfood smoothies, and cold pressed coffee (yes, you can have coffee). For lunch, you will anticipate rich and innovative salads, raw chips, and spreads. For dinner, you will look forward to full spreads showcasing raw food twists on items you never knew could taste so good vegan will let alone raw.

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!!!


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.

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!

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

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!
Unexpectedly wonderful in every way. The pictures of the cabin don’t do it justice. The yoga and music was on point with exactly what I needed, as were the afternoons connecting with the others at the retreat and exploring the road to Hana. The food was brilliant especially the lunches. Thank you to Heather and Donny both for the nurturing environment and beautiful experience. If you are considering a short a retreat to nature to recharge mentally, physically, emotionally- don’t think twice about this one, book it.
By Tawny W for 5 Days/4 Nights July 12-16 2021 YOGA & SOUND HEALING - MAUI, HAWAII on 25 Jul, 2021
Mahalo Tawny for your heartfelt reflections. We are so happy that you left here feeling rejuvenated in many ways. It was a special week. We look forward to staying in touch. Much love to you and your growing family, Heather & Donny <3
