Shamanic 'Life Purpose' Rebirth
'Looking for something other than a "touristy" vacation?
'Want to recharge, rejuvenate and merge your inner and outer purpose?
At Muaisa Hale Pule, we open the opportunity for you to let go of the "stuckness" that keeps you from enjoying your life. An upcountry Hawaii, shamanic venue without walls or religious dogma, we offer spiritually-focused programs to seekers, healers, teachers, creatives and visionaries from around the world.
So that everyone who comes here has an opportunity to renew energy levels, revitalize perspectives on life, experience an entirely new state of being, and nourish body, mind, and spirit, all who join us must be interested in and committed to personal growth and deep natural healing. Our focus is to invite kindred spirits to partake in our healing venues, to honor their own life's purpose, to progress in the healing of habitual, self-depleting behaviors, and to begin anew the process of developing the highest form of worship: the enjoyment of life on life's terms.
This program changed my life and was way more than I could ever have imaged. The tools I have taken with me are priceless. L.D. , New Jersey, USA
- This 10-day to 2-week, once-in-a-lifetime experience is an opportunity to study one-on-one with our 69-year old, Lakota-trained shaman, Chief Jack 'Golden Feather.'

It is an invitation to move beyond "making a living" to "living your making" and to merge your inner and outer natures. It is designed as an opportunity for you to reactivate your unique gifts and to take them with you to your place in the sun to share with others.

DirectionsMuaisa Hale Pule ("As I Aum" Sanctuary) is located on the healing Kona Coast of the island of Hawaii. This is the Big Island, the "real Hawaii" with a population of only 45 people per square mile; it is not to be confused with Honolulu on the island of Oahu where the population is over a million. Rather, our serene location is at approximately 1600 ft elevation, only 3 miles above the shoreline. The bay below us, "The Pathway to the Gods," is the #1 marine life preserve in the State of Hawaii. It is where Captain James Cook first discovered the island in 1778 and where dolphins continue to come almost daily to feed, play, rest and nurture their young. You will want to be sure you are flying into Kona International Airport (KOA), which is about 19 miles (30.5 km) north of our locale.
Along with your program booking details, we will also send you ground transportation guidelines to our locale from KOA. The best means of getting to us from there is to arrange for Uber, a rental car, a taxi or a shuttle in advance of your arrival. Taxis charge about $65 O/W; shuttles are closer to $46 - 51 O/W, and Uber drivers generally negotiate their own fares.
On Mon - Sat, the “Hele-on Bus” operates a regular schedule of $2 intra-Kona and $2 across-the-island bus routes from where we are located. The bus, however, does not go to many of the scenic hotspots, nor does it service this area from either of the 2 island airports at a time which is conducive to most people’s itineraries.
You'll be able to get by easily enough on foot and via bus as long as you're comfortable staying fairly local and walking .8 to 2.4 km (.5 - 1.5 miles) to shopping and environs. A rental car or scooter is advisable, however, for seeing more of the island and for ease in getting around. Hotwire.com often has car rentals for as little as $18.99 per day, and Craigslist sometimes has local vehicles available for less. Car rentals can be arranged ahead of time or can sometimes be negotiated once you get here. People also have had fun and great success getting rides and meeting people via a Craigslist "rideshares" post. Others have simply taken an island tour at some point during their stay.
