Circles of Light officials have just announced in a press release the scheduling of their first retreat day for this year, on April 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a new location.
The series, E Malama Kou Kino: Caring for Mind, Body and Soul, is a favorite for residents and visitors seeking a day of pure rejuvenation.
The event has been steadily gaining recognition and popularity over the last two years, and the next one promises to deliver what people like best, a beautiful, restful, and restorative environment; tasty, healthy foods; massage with experienced and licensed massage therapists; and yoga and art classes, not to mention live music.
This year, the location has changed, and the beauty of the new grounds easily equals, if not surpasses, those of the previous Kilauea location.
The new North Shore location boasts expansive ocean views from sprawling lawns, a chlorine-free pool, and a large and luxurious, covered outdoor “living room” area.
With the program and registration fees unchanged from last year, participants can expect the same quality that now follows its reputation.
The basic package at just $35 includes the ongoing buffet, featuring fresh morning treats and juice bar, swimming, and live musical entertainment.
Additionally, participants may individually design their day according to add-on preferences which include a fun art class for $25, a massage for $40, and yoga for $10. The $100 package includes all add-ons.
Practitioners are licensed, experienced professionals who donate their time to these events.
The event is powered by Kaua‘i residents, including licensed creative-arts therapist Kim Miller; experienced, certified yoga instructor Susan Lindgren; a gourmet chef; and a variety of licensed massage practitioners.
Live musical entertainment will feature Kaua‘i’s own, The Lost Pelican Band.
Circles of Light officials wished to thank all those who participate, volunteer, and donate time and supplies for this event, the proceeds from which support the children’s-outreach programs.
The current ongoing program, after school art, is offered twice weekly at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.
Additionally, organization leaders recently announced they will be hosting a partnership program with officials with Kanuikapono public charter school, Lihue Court Townhomes, and Hanama‘ulu housing, as awarded through the Kaua‘i Meth Initiative and the Hawai‘i Community Foundation.
If you would like to make a reservation for the April 15 event or inquire further about Circles of Light, please call the office at 632-0116, or visit the Web site at www.circlesoflight.
Directions to the private estate will be given at the time of registration. Donations to support youth programs are gratefully accepted.
