Offering a unique invitation to join Dick Schwartz in the healing, tranquil, and magical environment of Hui Ho’olana. In this eight day retreat we will explore the spiritual side of IFS through meditation and self exploration designed to access high levels of Self-energy, inviting guidance regarding a vision for your life, and further unburdening your parts as a way to remove obstacles to accessing Self.

At Hui Ho’olana you will be welcomed to experience the peace and inspiration that can come to light in an atmosphere of acceptance, respect and support. Through Dick’s guidance and the IFS model you will be offered the practice of ho’oponopono (the Hawaiian concept “to make things right”) by using the evolving conceptual spiritual framework of IFS to deeply heal exiles.

The inspiring and nurturing environment, superb natural food, small and intimate venue of 18 – 20 participants and Dick’s Self led guidance offer a unique and unmatched opportunity to further your IFS journey.

This advanced retreat is being offered to participants with a minimum of Level 1 IFS training.

Dick Schwartz is the founding developer of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of psychotherapy offering a clear, non-pathologizing, and empowering method of understanding human problems, as well as an innovative and enriching philosophy of practice that invites both therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur. Over the past 30 years IFS has gained global recognition and is being used in many venues other than psychotherapy, where it had it’s roots.

Join Stewart Cubley for the 27th year of his workshops at Hui Ho’olana. This retreat fills up quickly, so make sure to register early! This Moloka’i Intensive gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the timeless presence of process painting, beyond the pace and pressures of a busy life. You will dive into ten uninterrupted days of deep relaxation and creative awakening with a small community in the pristine setting of the Hui Ho’olana.

The foundation of this intensive is personal attention in the painting process, in the nurturing environment, and in small group interactions. This is Stewart’s longest and most personalized group program, and the opportunity to make a lasting investment in yourself and your life. It has proven to be a powerful catalyst for change by all who’ve experienced it.

For over four decades, Stewart Cubley has pioneered a way of integrative and creative living through the practice of process painting. Stewart travels throughout the world, teaching his unique approach to thousands of people at personal growth centers such as the Esalen and Omega, multinational corporations, programs in prisons, and countless other public forums. Stewart is the co-author of the highly acclaimed book, Life, Paint & Passion, Reclaiming the Magic of Spontaneous Expression (Tarcher/Putnam). He and his wife, Shae Irving, live in Fairfax, California and part of the year on their homestead near Denali Park, Alaska.

“I have to tell you that process painting has opened me up to something wild and true in my life that has more or less catapulted me beyond the confines I was feeling. And in turn my life is getting wilder and freer and better.  I mean in  very, very substantial ways. THANK YOU.”  ~ Ted L.

A fundraiser for the Hui

Venture deeper into the art of photography and return to old Hawaii with photographers Rikki Cooke, Jonathan Kingston, Ed Sancious and special guest Dewitt Jones. We will explore the creative process through group dialogues, small classes, one on one experiences and excursions into the incredible beauty of Molokai. The purpose of this workshop is to focus on seeing as we dive deep into the creative process – not only in our photography but also in our lives. How can we be most present in our lives and with the world around us?

This is a collective collaboration as together we create a new chapter in the Hui’s story – a story that reflects, among other things, the Spirit of the newly formed Huiho Sangha. As we continue to move in this direction, the ohana (family) has realized the importance of coming together for community, reflection, and service to the world. The workshop atmosphere will be one with an inherent sense of awe and gratitude, joy in the place and celebration of the community within the Hui. Our energy will be focused on spirituality as each participant understands and expresses it.
