10-Day Shamanic Retreats at 'The Pathway to God' Kealakekua, Hawaii
I just spent 10-days with these people, making and allowing for no excuses. NONE. Their programs are empowering and helped me tremendously. I have changed nearly everything about my life since, and I see a positive future ahead. -- Guest, 2018


Make Space in Your Life for Spirit. A bit of effort, a sense of gratitude, and an experience of the mystical can help you through these troubled times when the "Real World" no longer makes sense.

Muaisa Hale Pule is an upcountry, Hawaii sanctuary without walls and without religious or New Age dogma and an official Chapter of the New Haven Native American Church (NHNAC.) Our address is literally "The Great Outdoors."

People generally find their way to us when they are in the early stage of awakening, ready for something new, looking to experience more authenticity in life, or no longer certain of their outer purpose in a seemingly convoluted world. They see the madness in our modern day society and feel a sense of alienation from the culture around them.

Our focus is to invite all who visit and/or partake in our healing venues to honor their own life's purpose, to progress in the healing of habitual, self-depleting behaviors, and to begin anew the process of developing the highest form of worship: the ability to enjoy your life.

Comparable to "ayahuasca," the home-brewed tea made from 2 or more psychoactive South American plants that grow in the Amazon rain forest, the plants we work with comprise a variety of indigenous entheogens (psychotropic plants that induce a spiritual experience aimed at, literally, "becoming one with God"). Each of them grow in Hawaii and/or the Pacific islands. On Sunday evenings, Chief 'Golden Feather' of the Lakota tradition leads a sacred shamanic plant circle to celebrate and introduce people to these entheogenic plant teachers -- on location, in the plants' native habitat, in the middle of the world's largest ocean, the ocean named after Peace.

(Minimum circle size = 2, maximum = 8. Minimum suggested donation = $250.) Sacred Plants can also be used in combination with our Art Awakening and/or Shamanic 'Life Purpose' Rebirth or incorporated as part of a 2-day or longer mini-program (See below.)

Typical Day



This one-on-one tutorial with Shaman 'Golden Feather' is geared to assist you in moving beyond the mindset of "WHO you are, making a living" to that of "WHAT you are, living your making." It involves a series of private, one-on-one shamanic sessions, Medicine Card readings, an all-day mystic tour/eco-adventure, and a once-in-a-lifetime 9-totem 'Life Purpose' reading with Shaman. Upon completion of these initial 6 steps, you will be given an opportunity to create your own Sacred Bundle and Medicine Wheel Ceremony, to request spiritual adoption from the New Haven Native American Church (NHNAC) and to become certified as a NHNAC Healer/Medicine Woman/Medicine Man. (10 days to 2 weeks / Minimum suggested donation: $1,500 US, includes donations to NHNAC for the filing and processing of 2 certificates plus photo ID card).


This is a fun and insightful, 8-day or longer art & design tutorial with professional artist and shaman, Jack 'Golden Feather.' Culminating in an optional certification as an NHNAC Healer through expression in art, it opens the opportunity for you to access your emotional body, open your Third Eye, and explore your inner landscape through skillful guidance, geared to your specific level of previous art experience (or lack thereof). (8 days or longer / Minimum suggested donation: $1,600 US, includes one-on-one instruction, all art supplies + donations to NHNAC for the filing and processing of 2 certificates plus photo ID card)


The Shamanic Volunteer Immersion opens the opportunity to volunteer in the Earth Medicine Program for 3 weeks to 3 months while also completing the 9-night to 2-week Shamanic Rebirth. This allows for extra time to assimilate the deep, personal transformation offered in the shamanic work and the new way of perceiving the world that you will be experiencing.  (3 weeks to 3 months / Minimum suggested donation: $1,500 US, includes filing and processing of 2 NHNAC certificates plus photo ID card).

"This is a fabulous place to get in touch with nature and to refresh your soul. It is in an idyllic part of the island where temperatures are pleasant and you can still get easily into town, go to the beach, or drive around the rest of the island. Mostly, I enjoyed interacting with (practitioners' names). Their energy and the work we did together felt like the answer to a prayer." -- Violet, Nevada, USA

"I feel so blessed to have come to Hawai'i and especially to Muaisa Hale Pule. So many transformations have been taken place within me. My interaction at this wonderful place has caused some profound changes in me, and I feel that I have entered a new stage of my life." -- Sonja, Munich, Germany

"Thank you for inspiring me. It's been a long, hard journey, and Truly you played a big hand in my transformation! I learned to go within and find my own Peace. I now know it's ok to just be myself. I love all the people of the World and I accept our differences. There truly is nothing greater than love for all! What a beautiful Planet we live on. I'm so happy to be here, and making a difference in just one person's life makes it worthwhile. You made a difference in mine, and I will always be grateful to you for that. Wishing all the best to you in your endeavors!" -- Chris, Florida, USA

An official 501(c)(3) Chapter of New Haven Native American Church (NHNAC), we are not-for-profit and do not engage in commerce. Rather than charge "fees" for our services, we rely solely on volunteerism and donations, donations which are paid in exchange for the spiritual benefits of our programs. Based on our costs, and on the number of people we serve, any suggested donation amounts listed in this post reflect examples of the minimum dollar values we need to collect in order to break even.

There are no set start and stop dates for any of our programs. Depending upon availability on both sides of the equation, you create your own schedule. For the greatest chance of availability, we recommend advanced planning. Lodging in Hawaii tends to book in unexpected spurts, space in our programs tends to fill quickly, and we operate on a first-come-first-served basis. Summers and the winter holiday months are our busiest seasons.

*Please contact advertiser for rates & availability for your travel dates.


  • Reservations Required

Age range, type of group



Anyone between the ages of 18 - 56 is invited to get their hands into our nutrient-rich, Hawaiian volcanic soil and to volunteer alongside Shaman 'Golden Feather.' There is NO FEE nor set schedule. Work a 2 -, 3- or 4-hour shift, contributing gardening, grounds keeping, landscaping, maintenance and/or yard work. We also welcome grant writing, screenwriting, website design, videography, skilled trades, licensed bodywork or any pre-approved combination of the above disciplines.

Upon the projected completion of 36 hours of volunteerism, you will, if you care to, receive instruction on creating a Sacred Bundle Medicine Wheel Ceremony and, if you wish, be welcome to apply for certification as a NHNAC Healer/Medicine Woman/Medicine Man.


For those who resonate to our venue and do not have the 8 days, 10 days of longer to commit to a program, the following 1-day, 2-day or longer mini-retreats include 3 to 6 hours of one-on-one interaction with Chief 'Golden Feather' and can be extended for additional nights or combined with others of the offerings below for extra nights if you wish. There is no hurry on our part. You are welcome to stay for as longer as you want to enjoy the aloha spirit of this area.

This mini experience generally takes place at 4-7 PM. It includes a 90-minute shamanic consult and a 90-minute Moon Lodge Medicine Card Reading to address the forces moving deep within you. Suggested donation = $240. It is recommended that you DO NOT EAT for at least 2 hours before this involvement.

ART-VENTURE Spend the day "getting creative" while exploring the natural wonders of Hawaii and your own within-heart-mind imagination. No previous art experience required. Suggested donation = $360, including art materials. Add $140 per each additional person.

MYSTIC TOUR This mini option involves a 6-hour Mystic Tour/Eco-adventure in the pristine beauty of off-trail Hawaii plus a 1-hour shamanic Pathway Medicine Card Reading to give you a general overview of your life pathway. Suggested donation = $480. Add one hour and $80 per each additional person.

Age range, type of group

Upon receipt of your dates and reservation for one of our programs, we will email you a list of nearby, affordable lodging options.

Nearby rooms (.8 to 2.4 km / .5- to 1.5-miles from us) generally have kitchenettes and/or access to restaurants, grocery stores and a well-equipped shared kitchen for preparing meals and snacks. You are also free to find your own accommodations elsewhere, if you prefer, and to commute back and forth to our area.

A few currently available room rates are posted as follows:

$40-45 per night / $198 per week (off season)
$42 per night / $252 per week year round

Policies & Restrictions

Come heal, rejuvenate, and take care of your deepest needs.
Care for yourself to the same degree you ordinarily care for others.
Jump into the ocean and swim with the dolphins in Kealakekua Bay.
Accompany our knowledgeable shamans on educational nature walks.
Participate in Sacred Ceremony and connect with your own inner divinity.
Luxuriate in the moist, fragrant, Hawaiian air with its many medicinal essential oils.
Feel more at peace, more accepting of yourself, and more in touch with the earth.
Perform sacred ceremony in the center of our labyrinth or by the sea in an ancient Hawaiian settlement.
Get your hands into the nutrient-rich soil, and let the earth's healing microorganisms enhance your inner biology.
Recharge in the hyper dimensional energy at 19.5 degrees latitude, a unique "star gate portal" with an energetic predisposition for inter-dimensional experience.
Eat from an abundance of organic tropical fruits at your doorstep. (Depending on the season, we are surrounded by a bounty of guavas, oranges, mangoes, bananas, papayas, avocados, coffee beans, passion fruit, mountain apples, edible Hawaiian ti plant berries and more.)

Other Information

What makes our location most spectacular is that we are situated at 19.5 degrees North latitude on an erupting island. This area, known to Hawaiian elders as "The Golden Triangle, " is the geographic location at which the apex of a star tetrahedra contacts the earth's surface when one of the apexes is positioned at the south pole.

The 19.5 parallel on the Big Island connects Mauna Loa, the worlds' largest volcano/mountain when measured from the ocean's floor, to Kealakekua Bay, the #1 marine life sanctuary in the state of Hawaii. Researchers have identified this position as a "signal in the noise" -- a "'message" left here by some intelligence, a planetary "stargate vortex."

It is at 19.5 degrees latitude that pods of spinner and bottle-nose dolphins come to rest, feed, and nurse their calves. Here, light codes enter the energetic matrix of the Earth and then "broadcast" prayers and/or intentions made here to the world.

This is a dynamic place of manifestation, a spot where things "come up." Those who come here to find themselves or to seek direction, generally receive that; others, who come in denial or resistance to their own gifts, tend to co-create a dozen reasons to take exception and/or to feel bothered. Rather than experience what you fear or what you desire here, you are more apt to clearly experience who and what you are.
