Wake up now to your joy in being
Lomi Lomi Retreat with Ho’oponopono Ceremony….You! Awake & Alive!
At this Lomi Lomi Retreat, realise love is all that is & create awakeness, re-discover aliveness. Come nourish, heal, release, re-invigorate!
Just imagine what would happen if you renewed your passion for life & your love of being you & what that might lead to……
Waves of Aloha………Touching Presence
Summertime is a powerful time for self-renewal and celebration of your being.
If you would like to heal and nourish your being, find completion with the past, let go of the old & receive all that is new when you are fully present with life now, if you would like to experience deep nourishment and physical, emotional and spiritual wholeness, come join us.
This deep retreat can bring very significant shifts in your life experience, allowing you freedom from old patterns of limitation and more of the natural happiness and freedom of being. We work with the physical, emotional and energetic levels of being to encourage through loving, vibrant touch, the wholeness that is your birthright. The aloha of our circle, the unconditional love and acceptance of all that you are, invites a deep let-go on physical, emotional and energetic levels.
If you are new to healing practices and massage, you are welcome, as are those who have attended these LomiLomi retreats before who wish to reconnect with the spirit and power of lomi and aloha. If you are an experienced professional masseur, Lomi supports every other exploration and modality you or your clients may be involved with, and you are welcome. The powerful energetic field will give you exactly what you need. The novice and expert are one once the shamanic portals are opened. This is for you if you wish to create sacred space to open shamanically in relation to issues and visions of your choice and explore lomi deeply.
Our long, flowing, endless infinity movements with their oceanic rhythm embrace and nurture you and allow a cellular realisation of oneness and the wonder of aliveness.
You will receive several luxurious and deeply transformative massages during this retreat, and will also discover that giving them is a powerful receiving and healing too. The leaders and kings of ancient Hawaii received many massages over many days before taking up their worldly roles.
You will benefit from the healing power of aloha in many ways, on all levels, physical, emotional and spiritual, when giving and receiving lomi. This inherently beautiful work, rhythmic and all-embracing as the ocean, ‘works’ on us as we give, and receiving is …..wonderful.
There will be quiet & silence to deeply enjoy the nourishment & encouragement of us being together. There will be laughter, profound ho’oponopono ritual, just being, silence, meditative healing time in nature and, above all, nurturing Lomilomi opportunities for deep intimate connection with yourself, others & existence.

This is an opportunity for all who wish to invite more of the intimacy and healing of touch into their lives, a way of creating sacred ground within and without. You will give and receive the gentle and profound Hawaiian Kahi Loa and Lomilomi Nui healing touch. These were used in ancient healing initiations and in these circles today to fully integrate physical and spiritual energy and promote the free flow of life energy and joyous fulfilment.
This energetic healing and deep tissue massage quiets the mind, cleanses the emotional body, opens energy channels and can release toxins and relieve many old layers of tension, pain and conditioning in the physical body can be combined with powerful yet simple Huna rituals, shamanic journeys and profound meditations,. A deeper realization that all is one and that there is no separation can result.
‘Lomilomi is a profound rite of passage, an initiation. It is a spiritual healing which leads to physical and emotional healing. Deep, flowing, luxurious Lomi cleanses the body and allows increased light to enter the bones, organs and tissues. In Lohe lima, we sense elemental imbalances, soreness, held energy and any trauma in the body. Lomi is prayer, poetry in motion. The heart allows the flow of unconditional love. Lomi is life loving life. Grace heals through us. It is the aloha, the love, that heals, not technique. And every benefit the receiver gains is always given back to the giver. The more lomi we receive, the looser and more open the body and being. Moreover, each initiation we undergo can carry a deep intention for our lives. Huna and Lomi, the teachings of ancient Hawaii, are a direct access to the Truth of life, the essence of the love that we are, the aloha in all manifestation. You are all that is, the source and appearance of all that rises and falls in awareness, nothing else is ever happening. The Kahuna knows that life’s dream is the expression of wholeness, of aloha unfolding, there is nothing to search for. What is, is perfection. A paradox that runs through all my work and my life!‘ Joy Hicklin-Bailey
This is a surrender to love. Celebrate YOU, and the miracle of the possibility of another, fresh year on the planet in a completely different way. Join us!

- It is beautiful work -sharing and responding, nourishing each other through gentle non invasive touch, meditation and being together in the way we all need need deeply and can claim again. Learning lomilomi is a way to begin or deepen a profound, cleansing, healing journey for yourself and to learn how to facilitate that for others. The retreat is suitable for those who wish to share touch with loved ones, family or friends and also for those who work as healers or therapists. You will discover how to be more and more fully present with the person you are with, to create safety and holding, how to be sensitive to what is being held and what is ready for release and to facilitate a deeper opening in your receiver to an even fuller surrender to their true nature. We will also do some voice work with the ancient sacred chants which resonate with the very essence of what the words invoke. Lomilomi helps those with unresolved past trauma, poor self image, stress, lack of self-esteem and confidence, relationship challenges, unhelpful habits or addictions, confused direction, and busy minds. Most important, it is also for those who wish to know the nature of life and being, who wish to be their divine, awakened aliveness more and more in ordinary life.
