Day-long relaxation fund-raiser is for Kaua‘i children’s programs

Circles of Light officials have announced in a press release the scheduling of their first retreat day for this year, on Saturday 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 becoming 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.

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.

The basic package at $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 addons.

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 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’soutreach 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 in Anahola, Lihue Court Townhomes, and Hanama‘ulu housing, as awarded through the Kaua‘i Meth Initiative and the Hawai‘i Community Foundation.
