Retreat on 24 acres of native Hawaiian forest for this Beyond Addiction course led by Dr. Wendy Harris and hosted by Ahu Lani Sanctuary. Immerse your body, mind, and Spirit on land that has been called “magical” and offers a very deep healing energy that people travel from all around the world to experience.

We will gather in the spectacular beauty of Honokaa, Hawaii for a 9-day, unforgettable experience followed by 16-weeks of facilitated integration.

“Ahu Lani” translates into “Heavenly Temple” and is located on the Hamakua coast, 5 miles from the ocean on the big island.

Diving deep to heal the pain and trauma that seeds our self-defeating habits is courageous work that requires safety, vulnerability, and connection. Together,  a nurturing and nourishing space is created where you will explore the root cause of your addictions, gain understanding and choice around your behaviors, and most importantly… build community to support ongoing connection and healing.

The course is suitable for people in recovery, therapists, students, health practitioners, yoga teachers and anyone else who is seeking positive change and guidance in developing a spiritual practice.

No prior experience with yoga is necessary.

Catered breakfast, lunch, and dinner is provided and prepared with love and thoughtfulness, sourced from locally grown produce and fruits. We will enjoy meals together, gather daily in a cedar round temple room, and enjoy relaxing evenings.

Included in the course fee is a 4-month home practice program with online yoga videos and webinars taught by Sat Dharam Kaur ND and teaching clips from Dr. Gabor Maté. Participants in the Los Angeles area have the opportunity to gather for a weekly yoga class at Kundalini Yoga by the Sea in Santa Monica with Dr. Wendy for an additional fee.

You will learn to:

  • Use Kundalini Yoga and meditation to rejuvenate body, mind and spirit
  • Utilize yogic techniques to decrease cravings
  • Restore the nervous system, brain, frontal lobe and adrenal glands with yoga and naturopathic therapies
  • Access your spiritual centre and learn to rely on your Higher Self
  • Develop neutrality and clear subconscious patterns
  • Manage your reactions to people and events
  • Enhance communication and relationship skills
