The Dragonfly Ranch - Healing Arts Center

About This Center

The Dragonfly Ranch is a modern day sanctuary, blessed to be in the middle of the "Sacred Healing Triangle" where Samoans and Tahitians of ancient times sailed for healing purposes. This country estate has a view of the ocean, overlooking grazing land that provides an idyllic buffer of privacy.

Enjoy our eco-spa on the sunny Kona Coast of Hawaii's Big Island where Aloha abounds. Ever dream of having the wild, friendly dolphins visit you while snorkeling in the pristine bays nearby, experiencing the natural beauty of old Hawai'i, diving and snorkeling in world-class pristine waters, meeting Kahunas, or using Hawaiian healing herbs like awa or noni?

Would you like to "tune up" your health, learning alternative healing methods, practicing the five Tibetan sacred rites, tai chi/yoga/chi gong, or meditating while walking our labyrinth -- all in the spirit of having FUN?

Whether you prefer privacy or the feeling of being included as family, you are cordially invited to The Dragonfly Ranch: Healing Arts Center - designed especially for Healthy Pleasures.

Blessed with an ideal location, this peaceful country estate is near the ancient Place of Refuge National Historical Park and five beautiful bays. The Kona Coast is an ocean-lover's paradise (with Spiner dolphins, tropical fish, coral, turtles and whales) -- where people are full of Aloha and time is slow and easy. The elevation is ideal (about 700 feet) and the temperature is almost always 72 degrees with lots of sunshine, very little wind, and limited rain.

Individuals, families or groups are invited to come here and relax, rejuvenate and restore creative energies.

Those of us here at the Dragonfly are having a good time exploring our creative talents, sharing common goals, music, laughter and love. We welcome you to join us. We wish for our guests to feel comfortably "at home."

We invite interested guests to learn about local culture/agriculture and Hawaiian healing arts.

From Kona Keahole International Airport:
Turn right out of the airport onto the main highway. Go past Kailua up a 10 minute hill. You will reach a plateau and pass through the little towns of Honalo, Kainaliu, Kealakekua and Captain Cook. Next you'll see a highway sign for Honaunau; watch for highway mile marker signs (small, rectangular and green)!

After you pass the 104 mile marker, look to turn right onto Route 160, which is clearly marked by a large sign: "Pu'uhonua o Honaunau". We are located exactly one and one half miles down Route 160, on the right side. Look straight down the road and you will see two arrows marking a sharp bend in the road and a large sign saying DRAGONFLY. Just beyond the second arrow on the right you'll see a large mail box on an ohia post saying "Welcome". Turn right, into our driveway (above which hangs a dragonfly goddess). A sign says: "Dragonfly Ranch."

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
