This Awakening Adventure Retreat scheduled for October 2015 is a week-long playful, adventurous, profound and intimate exploration focused on awakening the mind to the Heart’s truth, so that the uniquely creative, happy, powerful and authentic Self may be expressed fully in this Lifetime. Held at Kalani Retreat Center on The Big Island of Hawaii, this retreat is a safe container for participants to explore, play, adventure and make life-altering discoveries.

This retreat is led by Hope Johnson, who has experienced total life transformation by following the voice of wisdom that speaks through her. Specifically, Hope Johnson used to feel victimized and experience conflict in All of her relationships, she felt overworked, under appreciated and generally miserable. While Hope still has a family, a business, plenty of friends and a robust schedule of activities, the tension and conflict between herself and other people has been totally dissolved, and her work and day to day activities are performed with beauty, passion, purpose, inspiration and love.

Guests to this retreat will be living with Hope and her friend, Jill Walton​ for the entire week. Hope and Jill stay on the retreat property with their guests and both of them generally participate in every activity, event, meal and outing with them. Both Hope and Jill especially enjoy making themselves available to their guests throughout the retreat, sharing their essence and answering questions as they arise.

The Awakening Adventure Retreat schedule is designed with both awakening and adventure in mind and Hope enlists several of her spiritually attuned friends to share their insights and spiritual practices such as yoga, active meditation, drum journeys, etc. There is also plenty of room in the schedule for all kinds of fun, sharing, sightseeing (guided by Hope), basking and frolicking.

As part of the schedule, Hope leads daily Wisdom Dialogues to help her guests get in touch with their powerful, fearless and joyful aspect. Discoveries in this regard are the seeds that lead to deepening clarity with respect to personal relationships, physical health, mental well-being, creative outlets, career path, and all other aspects of being human.

Jill Walton leads shamanic journeys and ceremonies to help open the way for spirit in fun and creative ways. Jill is also a plethora of wisdom, experience and compassion which is naturally shared with everyone who comes in contact with her.

Hope and Jill are both passionate about having fun and inspiring others on the journey of discovering their authentic and powerful self. Both women are locals to the Big Island, Hawaii where they live surrounded by an abundance of faery and deva spirits.

Hope’s home is surrounded by beautiful gardens that are inspired by Feng Shui and faery spirits. As part of the Hawaii retreat, Hope takes her guests to visit her gardens (cultivated by Hope’s husband) so that her guests may experience the carefree nature of plant wisdom.
