Maui Eco Retreat Center


About This Center

MERC is a collective of eco retreat facilities nestled among the exotic fruit trees, gardens, and organic farms in Haiku, the jungle side of Maui. We are surrounded by natural ponds, waterfalls, and a lush jungle full of singing birds and gently swaying trees.

Year-round MERC offers a wide range of diverse eco retreat programs that explore abundance, peace, connection, and celebration of life. Our programs are provided by local teachers and professionals, who combine ancestral wisdom with the cutting-edge expertise to cast new light on the central issues of 21st-century living.

Our cultural heritage lies at the crossroads of permaculture and retreat. Our culinary menus are local and fresh, and most often from our organic farms. We are proud to run 100% toxin-free, pesticide-free, Earth-loving facilities. As a mindful visitor to this paradise, you help improve the welfare of local people and the pristine surroundings.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
