Personal Hawaiian Retreats

Home Personal Hawaiian Retreats


Every Hawaiian retreat we hold is one on one and tailored specifically to meet your needs. We have developed a graceful retreat system that expands out a retreat to be a fuller experience. We will help you walk through and develop your own retreat. During the retreat our personal attention means the actual retreat evolves as you learn. When the retreat is finished we are still accessible, so you will have guides to help you finish applying the lessons from the retreat smoothly into your life. Our retreats flow as a life changing process and are far more than just taking one week off from your life. We are here to help you connect fully into a more complete and graceful life.

You will be able to mix and match these listed topics and other elements of teaching in your retreat experience. We’ll make sure the experience matches your personality and requirements in a manner you can never achieve in a larger group retreat.

Our personalized service sets us apart from other retreat centers. It means A Personal Tao Hawaiian Retreat will help you explore in depth your own development without getting lost in the crowd.

Come to Hawaii and discover what so many others have found here, a complete teaching & healing experience that opens up new possibilities for their next steps in life.

We also offer a group workshop experience once every quarter. These workshops are kept small (4 people) and cycle between the different services we offer.


In general we work and teach in a system we call time for time. Costs are relative to each person. How we work with each person is centered around a balanced exchange of time and support which works in both directions. We personally developed the time to time system ourselves to ensure a better experience for everyone. In fact time for time works so gracefully many other teachers have been adopting our system. For more information read about Time for Time.

Retreat Location

The One River Hawaiian retreat is located in Hilo Hawaii next to the Wailuku river.

Come join us by the river to find both answers and the inner calm you have been seeking.

Taking a Retreat Further

A retreat is an amazingly powerful experience, but keeping the peace of mind and centering after a retreat is a challenge. A retreat shouldn’t end when you leave One River Retreat center. You are going back into the world and applying the lessons learned from your retreat. This isn’t as simple as people think. So you can continue to work with us over the phone / Internet to help to balance out your experience after you have left. We are there to help you continue your learning process once you leave.

First Time Retreats

Retreats facilitate transformation. This represents a powerful moment of your life. For a person considering their first retreat, the process of finding the right retreat can be overwhelming when sorting out all the possible options. To make our Hawaiian retreats accessible right away we offer the additional option to work with you directly before the retreat starts. We often work with a person over the phone or the internet. We are able to start the teaching before the retreat even begins. In this manner a person gets to know us personally and begins to explore the teaching subject right away. Additionally since we get to know you before the retreat begins, this approach allows us to fine tune and customize the retreat precisely to you. This allows Julie and myself to make each Hawaiian retreat an amazing experience for everyone.
