Igniting Your Sacred Spirit
An empowering spiritual journey of yoga and ceremony


  • Connect the sacred spirit in all aspects of your life through Yoga, Meditation, Ceremony and Reflection.
  • Tap into your infinite potential, your innate inner wisdom…listen to your intuition.
  • Bridge the gap of the mind and body, breathe.
  • Celebrate the peace and freedom that already lies within.
  • Cultivate spiritual independence, attain an unlimited life.


Joy and Kathy are excited to share this journey with you to the sacred island of Hawaii. We will all empower each other to elevate to our highest vibration individually and collectively.

Here, amidst the incredible beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, healing and personal transformation will be accelerated. The Big Island of Hawaii has long been known as the healing island.

The spirit of Pele, the goddess of the volcano, has a way of cutting through blockages and bringing to light our innermost yearnings. Whatever one wishes for often manifests very quickly here.

This week will be life transforming, we will explore:

  • Igniting your greatest passion and intuition.
  • Discussing archetypes, chakras and astrology.
  • Finding balance in nature: fire, air, water and earth.
  • Honoring the directions: north, south, east and west.
  • Owning the celestial, spiritual, and earthly divine Goddess.
  • Within our sacred circles we will share in ceremony and tales of what was, what is and what will be allowing us to celebrate who we were and who we are becoming.

“Kalani is one of the most potent and nurturing retreat centers in the world as it is so close to where Pele’s lava flows into the ocean – where new earth is actually being created. This rare and sacred connection to the creative power of life – combined with the most beautiful grounds, wonderful staff, inspiring yoga room, tropical cuisine, amazing bodywork and beach within walking distance – make Kalani a pilgrimage center for yoga”. – Shiva Rea

This awakening process is to release the old and re-integrate ourselves with the spiritual aspects of ourselves and life. Learning what it means to be with the Tao, that which is already there.

Being in nature and calming the mind to tune into our senses and feel the energy above, below, around and within.

If we are going to participate fully and vibrantly in our lives we must connect to the source of our inspiration and empowerment. After dinner we will retreat for the evening. Take time to journal.

Kathy Knowles A former human resource director, Kathy Knowles left behind a successful career with an award-winning multimillion dollar company to find her passion and remember her intuitive childhood roots. As an intuitive coach, retreat leader and speaker, Kathy works with high-performing, action oriented clients who want to improve their practical intuition, leadership capabilities, and create an irresistible life.

In her travels from corporate executive to coach, Kathy has studied with the intuitive guru Laura Day and the leadership guru John Maxwell. She is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) with the International Coaching Academy, and is part of the Founding Circle for John Maxwell’s leadership training.

Kathy’s favorite question in working with clients is “what if it was possible?”  Along the way she learned it was possible to know what others are feeling, collect accurate information to make decisions with, see events with clarity, and take life-changing positive actions in the moment. Today her blessing is to be able to share her intuition and knowledge with others – helping them to connect with their own intuitive wisdom. Kathy’s deepest joy is to teach others that their intuition is a natural ability ~ we all have it. We simply need to learn how to use it and when we do … anything is possible!
