Event Description
Aloha! The islands of Hawaii are so renowned for their beauty, heart opening and connection to the divine. We've been so touched by these islands that we have been leading retreats here since 2016.  They are always a highlight of our lives and for the people who attend.

We'd like to offer you a sanctuary, a healing space, a place to forgive and be forgiven, a time to reconnect to you.  We'd like to offer you inspiration,  hope, nurturing and a time of connection, celebration, and devotion.  

Please join us for our last Altar of Love Retreat in Maui Feb. 3rd-8th.  Come celebrate our finale of 14 years of collaboration together!

*We were so sad by the fires on Maui. They did not effect the center and places we will be visiting. But to help those who have been effected, we're going to donate 5% of profits to those in need. 

This retreat is designed to:

  • Heal your heart

  • Bring more meaning and purpose

  • De-stress

  • Inspire your devotion

"We thoroughly enjoyed our retreat in Hawaii with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda. So much so that we are doing it again! The intimate chanting every evening was a dream come true. The whale excursions were an amazing experience that we will never forget! Waking up with yoga and the accompanying live music was fantastic. The cacao ceremony was a deeply enriching experience. Our whole family was made to feel very welcome and we created friendships that will last a lifetime. The kirtronica on the last evening was an absolutely blast, heart opening and uplifting! Looking forward to more adventures and much love to Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Das." Ryan, Bobbi and kids


  • This is the height of whale season and we will be overlooking one of the greatest humpback whale sanctuaries in the world. So lots of whale watching!

Is this for me?

Chanting & Heart Songs 

This retreat will deepen your love and practice of singing, chanting mantra, and bhakti (devotion) in a majestic and elevating environment.  We will also explore singing techniques, mantra pronunciation, deity mythology and relevance in a modern context.  We will explore singing and chanting as a pathway to healing, upliftment and connection.     

Sattva Yoga 

Sattva Himalayan Kundalini Yoga is an ever-evolving and inclusive practice of meditation, kriya, asana, movement, pranayama, radical aliveness, and timeless wisdom. It integrates the science of Hatha and Kriya Yoga from ancient lineages, incorporating purification sequencing, so each journey has a subtle cellular shift, dynamic mind-body experience, as well as a mindful meditative experience. This style of yoga is similar to Kundalini Yoga as taught by KRI but with more freedom and flow to it.  

It is very powerful for stabilizing emotions, reducing anxiety, decreasing fear, and deep healing.  It's wonderful for cultivating joy, bliss, love, peace, stillness and a feeling of radical aliveness.  Come experience this incredible technology to support you in facing and overcoming your fears! 

Ocean Adventures

We will be swimming and snorkeling daily together at local bays and beaches. You don't have to be an expert ocean swimmer but some experience is helpful so we can have a full experience together.  You can always sit out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sunshine. Be prepared to have some magical encounters with some very special ocean creatures!
