About This Center

Good Vibes is located in the lush jungle less than a mile from one of the fissures that opened up and spewed lava during the Kilauea eruption in 2018. Erika and Skip feel very blessed that their house was spared from the lava, and they have created a high-vibe healing space on their property, called the Maika'i Studio, where classes and events are held. The potent energy of the land and this special place can be felt strongly throughout your stay here.

"Over the summer, I took several energy healing sessions. I felt a great sense of relaxation and wellness. I have since become a true believer of energy healing as it has empowered me to live a healthier and happier life." -Juanis, San Diego

Venue Highlights

As you venture down a winding country road, lined by majestic mango trees and tunneling vegetation, you will reach the destination of our Jungle Reiki Retreat- Kirpal Medication and Ecological Retreat Center, an off-grid facility located on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Nestled on 10 acres of land, KMEC is not only a retreat center, but an idyllic agricultural homestead with bountiful orchards and green gardens. They use all of Mother Earth's offerings by harnessing solar energy for electricity, as well as rain for their water needs. You will find that there is limited cell-phone reception (you're here to "get away from it all", remember?) but there is WiFi available in common areas, as well as other creature comfort modern amenities like hot water and flushing toilets. Many of the structures are open are, and designed to let in the essence of the outdoor surroundings. You will never really feel like you're living off-grid, just more in tune with the rhythm of nature.

This sacred center is protected by new walls of lava rock that surround the property from the recent 2018 Kilauea volcanic eruption. KMECwas only meters away from molten lava rivers, now hardened, leaving it on the brink of an expansive, rolling black lava field. Only minutes away from the coast, this venue is graced with the fresh, salty breath of the ocean and an expansive view of the horizon.

The unparalleled beauty and energetic force of this special location is the perfect setting for your intuitive development experience!

Why Retreat?

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

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
