About This Center
On a sloping hillside in Hāna, Maui, kukui trees cast the light of their distinctive green foliage on the tranquil grounds of Ala Kukui, a place of healing, education and celebration.
Literally translated as "Path of Englightenment", Ala Kukui is a cultural center for native Hawaiian spiritual and intellectual advancement. Our retreats offer a uniqe opportunity to engage with our local community of cultural practitioners who pay respect to the environment through traditional Hawaiian practices.
Whether you wish to privately conduct your own programming in our secluded environment, or immerse yourself in our community offerings, Ala Kukui provides access to rare cultural practices that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
We offer a peaceful retreat space, marked by native plants, a traditional Hula platform and other hallmarks of Hawaiian culture. Our aim is for visitors to Ala Kukui to develop a greater consciousness of their environment and a connection to Hāna, Hawai'i and the globe.
