Kohala Coast Retreat

Aloha everybody,
Let's continue on our jouney to discover some other qualities of Hawaii and the Kohala Coast than 'just a lovely beach'. There is so much more to find on our island. Desiree, cofounder of Kamuela Life Retreats, Big Island of Hawaii, will share her and her husband's ideas with our visitors today. We think this is a great way to combine a Kohala Coast vacation with addressing some personal issues in your life. So, if you liked what she had to say and you are interested in more information about their Hawaii retreats, visit their website. Enjoy Desiree's post of today. Aloha, Pua www.kohalacoastweb.com

Are You Where You Belong In Life?

Many people come to the Big Island of Hawaii for personal renewal and reflection. The first time I came to Hawaii in 1974 I fell in love. Not with a person. I fell in love with this warm, colorful, sensuous, smiling island. I somehow felt at home, like I was where I belonged in life. However, belonging is not only about location. It is about your life.

Now, this is what I do for a living with my husband, Mark. We lead retreats on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii helping other people get clear where they belong in life. What dream do you have brewing? Are you at a crossroads or feeling unsure about your next steps? Perhaps it is time to make a change in your business or personal life and you don’t know where to begin? The following quote by Philosopher, Harold Thurman Whitman speaks volumes about the importance of igniting your own fire.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs—ask yourself what makes you come alive,
and then go do it. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.”

Our Hawaii Retreat business opportunity came to us after we hit this same turning point three years ago and became clear what would make us come alive. We knew it was time for a change and we each began asking ourselves the hard questions. Things like: What do I want my life to be about? How can I create greater meaning and fulfillment in my lives? How can I use my talents and skills to make a difference to others?

The answers we found took us both by surprise. “Move to the Big Island of Hawaii and teach others how to find clarity of purpose and direction. Teach them how to navigate transition with greater ease and effectiveness.” Hummm… sounds good, but how could we possibly step into doing this. We did not understand the changes we were about to make, yet stepping toward this vision seemed like the only choice that would bring resolution to our uneasiness. Move, start over and begin a new business. Yikes! Oh, but our vision and the Big Island of Hawaii were both powerful lures. So here we are living our dream near the beautiful Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Running the Hawaii Retreat and Mentoring programs is simply our way of bringing the healing, Aloha Spirit to the rest of the world…one person, one group and one retreat at a time. So combine your next visit to Hawaii with time for focused reflection along the Kohala Coast. Simply take five days with us to redesign your life around what holds real meaning for you so that where ever you go… you are where you belong in life…for the rest of your life!

Warm Aloha Blessings,

Desirée Watson,
Cofounder Kamuela Life Retreats, Hawaii Big Island
