Ancient Voices Hawai'i Nei

About us

Enjoy 6 Days and 5 Nights at Mauna Lea Retreat Center. Adventure to swim with wild dolphins and guided movement journeys and vocal release with AyaPapaya. Visit sacred Hawai'ian sites with Kumu Ehulani Stephany.  Dance hula and learn ancient chants and rhythm making with Aunty Tutu.

~ Immerse yourself in beautiful Hawaii. Guided by AyaPapaya we will adventure and explore the Kona coast, snorkel in warm pristine waters, try exotic fruits, and hike along lava rock.

~ We will have a chance to swim with wild dolphins and/or other sea creatures, one day in a chartered boat and the rest offshore swimming to gently explore their natural habitat.  The spinner dolphins of Kona get their name from their acrobatics flipping through the air, and it is a sight to see from shore. In the water, at certain times, and when they want to, dolphins can be playful and open to human interaction.

~ Study with Kumu Ehulani Stephany Hawai'ian chants and wisdom.  We will be traveling with her to sacred sites, and to Volcano National Park where we can see where the lava flow lives in the crater at Halema'uma'u Crater.  Kumu will be teaching us a traditional Hula in honor of Pele (goddess of fire and volcano) that we will dance together.

~ Hands on workshop creating an authentic Hawai'ian gift with Kumu.  This will be something you get to take home as a way to connect with the islands and your experience here.

~ Dance the hula, learn chants, and play Hawai'ian instruments with Aunty Tutu.

~ Connect and integrate the body, heart, and soul with movement classes lead by AyaPapaya.

~ Release voice with song circles led by AyaPapaya.

~ Rejuvenate and relax at Mauna Lea Retreat Center with our private hot tub overlooking Kona and the ocean.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
