Connect, Renew, and Explore On Beautiful Maui 7 Day Retreat with
Bhante Sujatha and Inward Bound, November 17th-24th 2019

November 17th-24th 2019 we came together for a wellness retreat rooted in loving kindness and gratitude. Hosted by Venerable Bhante Sujatha, founder and head monk of The Blue Lotus Temple, Anna Ottolino, ERYT200, Owner of Inward Bound and Founder and former owner of The Yoga Effect, and Jennifer Sullivan, local Maui specialist.

All enjoyed the beautiful accommodations at Lumeria Maui, a luxury educational retreat center and stunning oasis of tranquility that connects people with the sacred ‘aina and mystery of Maui. Lumeria is located on six magnificently landscaped ocean view acres, just outside the seaside village of Paia on Maui’s north shore. With a group of less than 20 participants, we experienced the sights of Maui in a small group setting. Many times the most casual conversations with Bhante were the most impactful. Bhante was provided one on one time throughout the week, and Anna shared her knowledge and love of yoga and healing. We experienced so much of what Maui has to offer with daily excursions; so our hiking shoes and mala beads allowed us to connect with our spirit and sense of adventure for an unforgettable week!
