Special Guests & Events!

  • Spring Equinox Ceremony
    The spring equinox represents more light and illumination coming into our lives after a period of darkness. It is the signal from the universe to flip over into the rising light of spring time, the process of expanded flow. We are dancing, we are birthing, we are growing, it is the time for celebration! It is cleansing old energies that no longer serve our Highest in order to make more space for ourselves to welcome and embrace in all the love and abundance in our life with trust in the universe. This deepens our spiritual consciousness to bloom into focus and move into renewal and reinvigoration with fresh positivity. This is a transformational shift of new light and life, new beginnings, the planting of new seeds and forging of new paths. We specifically chose the dates for this Live Pure, Live Free Retreat so it would fall on the equinox, so we could collectively co-create a sacred ritual and invoke what new paths we want to call forth in our lives. This will include a fire burning ceremony where we symbolically release all that is no longer serving us, free ourselves from unwanted struggles and set our highest intentions to anchor ourselves into the universal love and light of our divine journey!
  • An Evening of Sound Health Therapy with SkyLove Solei
    "Relax, rest deeply and go on a journey deep into your heart! During the experience you will be bathed in the healing sound vibration of crystal bowls, gong and didgeridoo. The sound acts as a powerful medium that can support clearing away stagnant energy and balancing your system for greater health and vitality. “

“I HIGHLY recommend this awesome Raw Food Hawaiian Retreat to anyone interested in transitioning into or maintaining a raw food lifestyle. The knowledge, life-experience, self-reflection and self-development gained through this spontaneous, flexible, yet well planned out health retreat is truly remarkable. The abundant amount of activities and information Laura Dawn delivered, left me feeling fulfilled and ready to begin a new and lasting lifestyle. With all the materials supplied through the retreat, I feel supported in my transition home and continue to deepen my understanding of living a healthier and more mindful lifestyle, not only from a physical perspective but mental, emotional and spiritual as well.”

I was told a long time ago by someone very dear to me that Dreams + Actions = Reality. I feel that is exactly what Jenna echoed in what she taught me. I noticed that the more we spoke about how to attain happiness and dreams, the better I felt. For the first time in a very long time I felt like my goals and my happiness were easily attainable. It felt good for my soul to feel that way. Since my time with Jenna, I've been focusing my energy on doing things that will make my soul feel full again. In the coming months, I have some goals that I want to achieve and I'd like to thank Jenna for giving me that boost I needed. I'll admit, the same routine day in and out wore me down, and the negativity surrounding it caused me to become complacent. But now I feel I have more clarity and understanding of what makes me happy and how to let go of the negativity. Thank you again for that boost of confidence!!!

I'm not one to write reviews but I felt it was necessary to say something after my Raw Food Retreat on the Big Island with Laura Dawn. I've been to many healthy living/yoga retreats and this is hands down the best one I've yet to experience! When I met Laura Dawn and Noah they radiated warmth and kindness. They made sure I had the best island experience possible while catering specifically to my needs. Laura Dawn's in depth knowledge of healthy living and Noah's knowledge of the island made this retreat a major success. Whether it was the many durian sessions we had, hanging out on black sand beaches, the wonderful time spent exploring the island balanced with helpful information to support my journey toward health, was truly amazing. My life is definitely richer from the experience. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking to improve their health and have a great time on the Big Island of Hawaii. A big thanks to Laura Dawn @ Happy & Raw.

My time with Jenna was incredibly helpful. I wanted to address how I have been feeling overwhelmed about various aspects of my life and I feel like I now know the steps to start taking to find the balance and truth I need.
In order to move forward with my life I now understand that I need to be happy with myself and confident in the person I am. By loving myself and focusing on my strengths, I will be able to succeed and find the happiness I am seeking.
My main take away from Jenna was the importance of finding balance in my life. Being unhappy with one small aspect of my life can cause me to be unable to find the true happiness and motivation in other aspects of my life. It is time for me to create harmony and focus and take action to create my own happiness. I particularly liked the idea of taking a moment every morning when I wake up to appreciate all of the positive things both in myself and in the world around me. Typically when I wake up, I focus on the small negative things about my day to come rather than taking a step back and taking a moment to reflect on things that bring me happiness and motivation. Overall, awesome, helpful, insightful experience!
