About the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel
We are very excited to announce our 18th Annual Hawaii Retreat, “Dolphin Dreaming; Re-Imagining Our Lives, ” at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, on the Big Island!
Nestled between two white sand beaches on the sunny Kohala Coast, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows is unrivaled. An eleven-time winner of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award, Mauna Lani Bay is an exquisite blend of sophisticated luxury and Hawaiian style hospitality. Within the boundaries of our 3,200 acre Resort, guests may enjoy the ambiance of ancient Hawaii in the mystical fishponds and petroglyphs, the beautiful sunsets, lush gardens and a stretch of shoreline which is home to a myriad of marine life.
Guest accommodations reflect the utmost taste and timeless elegance. Every room is a refreshing tropical oasis and features a private lanai; over ninety percent overlook the blue Pacific or the ancient fishponds.
Sounds like heaven on earth, doesn’t it? The space is VERY limited for the retreat! It is going to be a small group of no more than 75 people.
“There are many activities at this exquisite location which your spouse or partner can enjoy while you participate in the event!
Perfect Kohala weather provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy outdoor fun. Golf, tennis, biking, jogging, spa facilities, and water sports are just a few of the activities available at the resort. Upon check-in guests also receive a schedule of complimentary activities they are invited to join in. The varied schedule includes lei-making, watercolor painting, tropical flower arranging, hula lessons, lomi-lomi massage demonstrations, Hawaiian games, fish feeding tours and historic tours.
The historian on site shares Hawaiian history and legends with guests at the Eva Parker Woods Cottage which is home to interesting artifacts of Hawaii.
The Guest Services staff at Mauna Lani are available to coordinate other Island activities including big game fishing, horseback riding, helicopter sightseeing, and tours of the Big Island. At Mauna Lani Bay you can spend lazy days swaying in a hammock; or explore all the excitement and adventure the Mauna Lani Resort, and the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer.
Plan on arriving on ONE DAY EARLY as we will begin our work the following morning. Also plan on staying at the hotel on the last evening of the retreat and LEAVE THE FOLLOWING MORNING. Since we will be working into the evening hours on the last day, you will more than likely get a better airfare rate with a Saturday stay-over.

PROGRAM: Lynn feels that an essential part of renewing our spirit and rejuvenating our soul, is to spend as much time on this sacred and powerful land as possible. Therefore, a large portion of the daytime hours will be spent working out on the land. You are encouraged to do things like meditations, exercises, explorations, and personal ceremonies designed specifically to move you into a receptive point-of-view. We will provide you with a journal for this, with some suggestions. These personal processes are an important aspect of the retreat and will prepare you for the in-depth work we will then do together in the evening hours.
TRAVEL:The closest airport is the Kona International Airport on the big island of Hawaii. If you would like to ride a shuttle from the airport, you will need to let the hotel know a week in advance and they will take care of that for you. There is a cost for this service. The price varies depending on the number of people riding the shuttle with you and the time of day. Ask the hotel for more details. They will be happy to help you arrange your shuttle ride.
