Spiritual Retreats for Women

Na Kumu Nalu

The Ancient Source Wave
Ke kai kia lea lea
A new tide of joy is beginning to flow
A Five day retreat for women in Hawaii
A dream is a wish your heart makes.
Imagine being in a Tropical paradise on the Big Island of Hawaii transforming your dreams and aspiring goals.

What do you do well?

What stands between you and your deepest desires? Explore what you are like at your best. What you are like when you are successful, and, when you are magnificent. So, that you can accomplish your goals and dreams. When what you want, and what you expect are the same, dreams come true.

Recognize limiting and restraining thoughts and patterns that were defining your life, and design your future being fully present in your magnificence. Feel compelled to accomplish your life goals and desires.

We will live in a beautiful Hale Maluhia La’a ( House of sacred Peace) in the Village of Napo’opo’o on Kealakekua Bay

(Pathway of the Gods). The bay is the home of the spinner dolphins, beautiful colorful fish where we will snorkel and merge with the water element.

Pule Ho’owehe - Prayer to open the way

Offer a pule of empowerment to your spiritual source to remove obstacles and open the way. Being fully present with your mauri, ( uhane, unihipili and aumakua ), your whole being.

Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of what you truly love. -Rumi

A rejuvenating and transformational retreat for women in Hawaii

In the Na Kumu Nalu retreats Dr. Anna Noekeala (Noe) weaves healing processes old and new, to create the space for the journey of the individual to move to a position of operating from the center of one‘s being.

As did her teacher’s, Noekeala uses traditional ways to guide and enrich the nature of being. She was taught in the Ohana (family) style; living together and learning by listening to her Kapuna; elders, “Talk Story” as they have done since the beginning of this oral tradition. Watching, listening on the porches of her Kumus (teachers), all of the teachings were empowered by the rich tropical setting on the Big Island of Hawaii. You are invited here to live ohana style to enrich and empower your dreams and journey self-unfolding, of becoming fully conscious of who you truly are in this moment.

Through chants and stories, and exploring what it is that you truly want to create in your life, Dr. Noe will ho’onalu ho‘ola (form healing waves) in the kino (body), the mana’o (mind), and uhane (spirit) to assist creation of deep ho’ola (healing) and the awakening of your adventurous, expansive spirit. This experience can prepare you for a place of choosing, seeing, feeling, and being. Your journey brings you here, to the place where all things are present and possible. Living within you are the limitless possibilities waiting to be Kahea (called) to shape all around you.

To live the life you want to live.

Ke nalu nei ka moana ( the ocean is full of waves), is the rhythmic harmonic waves within us and around us, in the moment, the present, that connect us with the Ke Kumu Nalu, the Source Wave.

“ I am the bubble make me the Sea”
- Paramahansa Yogananda.

Self-transformation captivates our minds. The ability to transcend the conditions and even the context of what is experienced on an ongoing basis is a fantasy that most of us engage in at some time in our lives.

In this retreat you will have the opportunity to release your hewa (troubles) and connect with the Na Kumu Nalu within you. Live together close with nature in a tropical paradise, where you can swim in Kealakekua Bay, home of the spinner dolphins, beautiful colorful fish and honu ( the sea turtle). And, watch carefully for the green flash of the sunset.

We will do traditional Hawaiian rituals (ho’oponopono) for clearing the day, and the past, and make Mohai la’a traditional sacred offerings. Imagine yourself at your best, having unlimited choices, and in an extraordinary way being so much of who you are, and desire to be in every present moment. Create a compelling future of your desires. Do what you love and be at your best. Come alive in this tropical paradise.

Somewhere in the deepest part of our soul we know there is a way to be complete and whole not separate, connected to all that we hold to be vital and true. There is an inherent truth, present in each of us, just on the other side of the threshold, awakened by riding the waves of awareness within our own being, in paradise. E komo mai, come in, and smell the sweet fragrance of living Ohana (family) style in an ancient historic Hawaiian Village of Napo’opo’o, on Kealakekua Bay ( pathway of the gods) on the Big Island of Hawaii, in the Hale Maluhia La’a, home of sacred peace. Maluhia is a beautiful home just 300 steps from the bay down a rock walled lined road. At night listen to the waves; come to shore while you are rocked gently to sleep after a beautiful, wonderful day.

Ho’ola Wahine: Woman Healer

Dr. Anna Noekeala Bonas DC, LAc, OMD, brings together many years of training and experience. She will be using traditional practices from different Hawaiian healers of Ho’oponopono: which realigns the spirit, the mind and body. It is a traditional form of Hawaiian family and individual emotional healing, which clears the past, making things right, as Aunty Margaret, her teacher (the world famous lomilomi massage kumu (the source, teacher) says, “empty your heart, before the sun goes down.” Don’t take the hewa (your) troubles into the night or the next day. Let go and give them to the Divine. Noekeala’okalehuaonaonaikauka; Noekeala, was hanai (adopted) by Kahu Lanakila Brandt, Kahuna Pule of Pu’uhonua O Honaunau, a 15th century heiau (temple), of Hale O Keawe. Noe, will share some Hawaiian offering rituals and pule (prayers) taught to her by Lanakila, as well as use La’au Kahea; the calling medicine; spiritual healing, that she learned from him, and others. Dr. Noe, created Na Kumu Nalu ( the ancient source wave) retreats to assist in the releasing of the hewa (troubles) of the past, while capturing our glories, and, opening anew to our very best. While we are at our present extraordinary best, we can become more aware of the energetic wave within, which opens to an even greater inner knowingness and expansiveness. Experience your connection with the harmonics of nature, in a tropical paradise, while expanding the The Ocean on the shores of Hawaiiawareness of your magnificence in all that you want to do and be.

The Ocean is a metaphor for merging yourself with the vast ocean of the Divine. In Kealakekua Bay…the pathway of the Gods..

Hina; Malama, Goddess of the Moon, who guides us in darkness, Uri, she whose spark started creation. Ha’itamalama; Goddess of the moon. Break the light, reveal the source.

- Pule to the Moon - Noekeala

Kuhu Lanakila Brant’s full name is Po’o Kahuna pule Lanakilakahuokalani Brandt, my beloved hanai makua kane, (adopted father) and teacher, who I was so fortunate to spend so many wonderful times with over the years, staying in his home, and sitting at his table on the lanai, ‘talking story’ about the Gods and Goddesses, and discussing so many other important things, learning Po’ohuna (the highest Hawaiian metaphysics secrets), and many Pule (prayers), and chants to use in La’au Kahea, the calling medicine. He was never interested in small talk. I sat by his side when he was teaching and assisted him in classes, and assisted with many ho’ola healings with people from all over the world. We collected ti leaves for heiau (temple) ceremonies and made mohai (offerings) for the temple, and for Pele at the volcano. Mahalo nui loa makua kane Lanakila, aloha mau.

The main concept of the Kekaikialealea retreat is to assist individuals to the conscious experience of feeling competent, successful and extraordinary, and then to expand the awareness to their magnificence. And, from their most expansive state of consciousness, have them step into the experience of the world around them: the ocean, the rich tropical environment that this special place in Hawaii has to offer their transformation.

We will do Hawaiian mohai (offerings) rituals, ho’otuano’o (meditation), and Ta Hanu Lipo; graduated deep breathing to ho’omana empower your experiences within yourself and with nature. La’au Kahea

(the calling medicine spiritual healings) and ho’ola healings will be preformed as well as processes for releasing limiting patterns that were standing in the way of accomplishing one’s deepest desires.

Na Kumu Nalu retreats throughtout the year offer special programs with other healers, and Ho’ola Kapuna healing elders of Hawaii. Our first class was blessed by Kahu Lanakila teaching his last course in La’au Kahea. We host Hawaiian cleansing programs carried on from the tradition of Aunty Margaret Kalehuamakanoelulu’uonapali Ahauiakealli Machado, the world renowned Lomilomi teacher.

Dr. Noekeala also teaches with other healers of non- Hawaiian traditions in Hawaii. She also teaches Lomilomi in California with the blessings of her teacher Aunty Margaret Machado. Noe was also given the blessings by Lanakila to carry on what he taught her. Noekeala has been given many gifts by the aina (the land), her many kumus (teachers) and aumakua (spiritual guardians), for which she is very grateful. Mahalo nui loa.
