About this trip

Immerse yourself in a mindful retreat on the stunning island of Maui. This January, join us as we connect with, learn from, and care for the ocean. We will breathe through its waves, listen closely to its creatures and its music, and move with its waters. We will practice holistic sustainability, nourishing ourselves with the ocean's gifts, and giving back in return.


Enjoy tailored breathwork and meditation sessions, an exclusive Sounds of the Oceans Concert, immersive sound journeys, a private whale watching and listening experience, somatic movement sessions, a mindful ocean cleanup, and an excursion to the Maui Ocean Center.


Treat yourself to daily yoga and wellness sessions, massages, a hot tub, healthy soul food, and a breathtaking view at the beautiful Lumeria retreat center.


Dive deeper with private breathwork, expressive arts therapy, and neuropathic sessions. Participate in a personal sound recording session to create your own Ocean/Whale Song.


Connect with the mesmerizing humpback whales through all your senses, and let their healing powers transform you.


Let Maui take you on this magical journey and discover the Ocean within!


***10% of profits from this retreat will be donated to the Maui Ocean Center to support ocean conservation and awareness https://mocmarineinstitute.org/***
