Molokai, Hawaii is the least visited of the major Hawaiian Islands. The local people of Molokai have been disciples of their land, preserving the organic nature of the island and working hard to steer away tourism. We feel honored to have been invited to share a retreat on this beautiful untouched natural landscape. Our intention is to respect the local effort to preserve the island. We ask that you not post publicly about your journey to Molokai. 


At Sacred Waters Sanctuary we are intentionally creating intimacy with Mother Ocean, the Jungle of Molokai, Her Elements & creatures. Sleeping close to the Earth and Re-Wilding as we unearth program’s & conditionings that hold us back from living the truth our hearts & souls.
