Join author and visionary Katalin Koda, and movement and Yoga teacher, Molly McLaughlin to activate your power, love and wisdom on the stunning Big Island of Hawaii. This is the fiery birthplace of new land and with the lava flowing steadily on the island, we are inspired to create our lives anew. This retreat is for any woman yearning to activate and deepen her connection to her inner divine feminine.
The goddess Pele is honored here, as the keeper of living land where lava meets the ocean. Inspired by her magical work, we transform our pain and life obstacles into power, recover inner passion and reclaim our lives.
The Big Island’s natural landscapes of ocean, volcano, caves and jungles is the perfect setting to integrate the power and beauty of nature to transform our lives into ones of wholeness and fulfillment.
Using the book, Fire of the Goddess as our guide, this women’s wellness retreat provides women from all walks of life with a guided path to reclaim the divine self. We work with the tools of the sacred feminine exploring goddess archetypes, ancient myths and co-creating ceremony. Each day is themed around central aspects of the divine feminine: Power, Love, Wisdom and Integration. We explore these themes through women’s circles, daily Yoga, ceremony and shamanic healing work.
We are joined by Hula and Ceremonial Master, Kahuna Ehulani Stephany to share in a traditional Hawaiian ceremony and offerings to Pele at Halema’uma’u Crater in Volcano National Park. Our experience with Kumu Ehulany includes:
*explore Volcano National Park and sacred water sites with traditional Hawaiian ceremony
*experience ancient Hawaiian kahiko hula, oli and mele (traditional dance, chant and song)
*receive traditional Hawaiian water blessings and cleansing ritual
*make ho’okupu (offering) with la’i (sacred leaf) at the crater, Pelehonuamea

Kumu Ehulani Stephany, masterful Hula teacher of the Big Island joins each Fire of the Goddess Retreat to offer her profound wisdom and grace. Known as ‘the voice of Pele’, Kumu Ehulani is the teacher of the Halau Hula (Hula School) ka Makani Hali ‘Alo o Puna (The Returning Fragrant Wind Of Puna). Since receiving the blessing to study under fourteen different kumu hula (hula teachers), Ehulani has been teaching hula since 1990. She has masterfully developed her own unique style of hula by combining the different styles, mana’o (thoughts), information, protocol, and the profound depth of the sacred arts of hula that she received from her teachers. She is also a ali’i kahuna nui (high priestess) and works tirelessly to reclaim the kahiko (ancient) sacred arts of hula, oli (chant), mele (song) and ceremony. Ehulani invokes the true feeling and meaning of ALOHA and spending time with her leaves a deep impression on all who attend Fire of the Goddess Retreats.
