A Day in the Life of the Hawaii Hybrid Journey
The Hawaii Hybrid experience means that we get to create something new all together. The vastness of the technology landscape we have access to allows us to create experiences that are not accessible in regular formatted trainings, there is a focus on independence and self regulation. There is homework every week, material for contemplation, activities of creativity and creation, and other engaging study elements. The online portion also offers flexibility with schedule. We only meet 4 hours (and a 15 min break) every week Live. You are expected to attend live, but if you cannot- there are alternative assignments that are created to be enriching and enjoyable. The 6 months leading up to the Hawaii onsite uniting ceremony is a support system, a network, and a conscious engaging activity for the mind, body, and spirit. Along with this 6 month connecting time and build up to the dance we take in Hawaii, we get the richness of the immersion experience with daily routine that is filled from beginning to end, but there’s also time built-in for self-reflection, lots of laughter, and restoration.
“The intensity of the schedule demanded all my attention—and that’s what I came here for!” - Immersion Student
We have half days set aside for free time: for a walk to the beach, hikes in the surrounding area, enjoying the property of 50 acres of gardens, wild groves, and ancient valley trails… making music with new friends, or just soaking in the elegant accommodations that are in complete harmony with nature.

Hawaii Island Retreat is becoming a leader in sustainable travel and green living. From building construction to garden design, our 50-acre retreat models ways in which we can live both in luxury and in balance with the earth. Our green living features and practices include the following:
We produce our own electricity through solar cells (photovoltaic panels) situated on the roof of our energy building. We have added a windmill that feeds into our energy panel as an additional power source.
The retreat was designed to take advantage of our Kohala breezes. Cross-ventilation and ceiling fans eliminate the need for air conditioning while keeping guest rooms warm when the air outside is cool, and cool when temperatures are warm
The retreat is also designed to use natural lighting during the day and full-spectrum compact fluorescents for night
Sparkling garden pools surrounding the lodge, which serve as rainwater catchments from the hotel roof
Water conservation through low-water toilets, special showers, and conscientious use of water throughout the hotel and spa
Guest rooms are cleaned daily, however linens are changed every fourth day unless requested by the guest to minimize daily laundry use and consumption of water, electricity, and propane gas
