Our Hawaiian retreats are one on one and tailored specifically to meet your needs. We have developed a graceful system that expands out your retreat to be a full and complete 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. Afterwards, we are still accessible, to guide you as you apply the lessons 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 are able to choose the teachings that matter most to you. We’ll make sure the experience matches your personality and requirements in a manner you can never achieve in a larger group setting.
Personal Retreat Activities
Some of the activities you may enjoy during your personal retreat stay include: exploring spiritual practices, breaking out of routine, a massage or bodywork session, meditation, movement classes including yoga and dance, Qi Gong, walking through tropical gardens, visiting waterfalls, going to see the active volcano, soaking in natural hot springs, swimming with dolphins and turtles or walking along a beautiful white sand beach. By taking a moment to re-connect to your soul you will find yourself more available to spirit, your true essence shining bright and in motion.
Our personalized service sets us apart from other retreat centers. With a personal One River Hawaiian Retreat, you can explore your own development in depth, at your own pace and without getting lost in the crowd.
Come to Hawaii and discover what so many others have found. A complete teaching & healing experience that opens up new possibilities for your next steps in life.
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. Time for time works so gracefully many other teachers have been adopting our system. For more information read about Time for Time.
A retreat can be a half day or last as long as a month. Generally, people come for a five to seven-day personal retreat and also add in a few days for a personal vacation to enjoy Hawaii. We also offer partial day options.
The One River Hawaiian retreat center 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.
Depending on the flow of your personal retreat, we visit different spots on the Big Island to compliment your transformation process.
In our travels, we have found the greatest sense of peace on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our intimate retreat center has an ideal mixture of spiritual, cultural, natural and healing settings. We help any seeker find resolution in his or her personal journey.
Since most of our retreats are one on one, it’s possible to arrange a personal retreat in other locations.
Expanding Your Retreat
A retreat is an amazingly powerful experience, but keeping the peace of mind and centering after a retreat can be a challenge. The learning process doesn’t have to end when you leave Hawaii. You are going back into the world and applying the lessons learned from working with us. This isn’t as simple as many people think. You can continue to work with us over the phone / Internet to help to balance out your experience as you evolve.
First Time Retreats
This represents a powerful moment of your life. If you are considering your first retreat, the process of sorting out all the possible options and finding the right options can be overwhelming. To make our Hawaiian retreats accessible right away, we offer the additional option to work with you directly before you come to Hawaii. We can work with you over the phone or Internet. In this manner, you can get to know us personally and begin learning right away. Additionally, since we get to know you before you come here, we can fine tune and customize your time here precisely to your needs. This allows Julie and Casey to make each Hawaiian retreat an amazing experience for everyone.
A personal retreat in Hawaii gives you the opportunity to take care of yourself while learning more about life.
We craft personal retreats to match your needs precisely. Julie and Casey are here to teach and assist you throughout the entire retreat. During your personal retreat, you can also take time off to simply relax and be present in your life.
Remote Retreat Option
Not everyone has the resources to come to Hawaii nor to bring us to them. So we have developed a third option called a remote retreat. We can help you arrange a personal retreat closer to where you live. Take a vacation or break someplace close that has always called to you or to that special place you go naturally for personal recharging. We would then work with you over the phone / Internet for several hours each day teaching what you need most while you are able to enjoy that special location nearer to you.
Remote personal retreats are very affordable since you are now using our teaching over the phone / internet rate. This is a popular option for many of our students. We perform many remote personal retreats every year to best match to our student’s needs in life. If you want to attend a retreat with us and cannot afford the more expensive Hawaiian retreat option, then contact us, and we will help you create a remote personal retreat!
Arranging Personal Retreats
The first step is to talk with you directly and review your full situation. In this initial step, we begin to teach right away to help in your life. Because of this, we can begin to pre-teach many concepts and work with retreat clients long before they even come to the retreat in Hawaii. This makes the actual attendance of the personal retreat far more powerful: since, we will have already started you moving in the direction needed and you will get to know us long before the personal retreat begins.
Many people can be fearful before starting a personal retreat. This process permits us to dispel all fears and get everyone to a stronger place before the retreat even begins.
So the first step would be to schedule an initial talk and start the process moving.
Casey and Julie are your personal retreat guides. Unlike a mass market retreat geared as a commercial and generic experience, here you get to be inspired and follow your process as it unfolds in the retreat.
We share our Taoist temple with others, the temple being our lives and our home on the Wailuku River. This sharing opens up the opportunity to explore many practices and activities. In this manner, we ensure unique and fulfilling personal retreats.
