Description

Experience personal growth and awareness when you live and work alongside our shaman and natural healers at Muaisa Hale Pule. An official 501(C)(3) chapter of New Haven Native American Church (NHNAC) in Hawaii, we offer a unique spiritual experience to students, teachers, seekers, creatives, visionaries and travelers from around the world.

Every day, we recreate the sacred and promote personal awakening via counseling, mystic tours, vision quests and shamanic training. Our tranquil ¾ acre slice of paradise is infused with the Spirit of Aloha. Nestled on the slopes of Mauna Loa and off the beaten path, it envelops nature everywhere.

We are approximately 11 miles from downtown Kailua-Kona on Hwy 11 at the 111 mile marker, 19.5 miles from Kona Airport (KOA), and 3 miles (6 miles by car) from the pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay, the State of Hawaii’s #1 top marine life preserve where Captain James Cook first discovered the island in 1778, and where pods of dolphins come almost daily to rest, feed, and nurture their calves. This is a perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA, kayaking and more.

Off-island and out-of-town interns, who are interested in staying with us for a month or longer are invited to apply for this program. The suggested donation for a private single room is $1200 per month plus 12.5 hours of volunteerism weekly. Accommodations are well-appointed, guest-quality, "comfortably rustic" and private with towels, soaps and linens provided. Each room enjoys its own entrance, deck space, unlimited free WIFI, adjoining shared half-bath, access to our outdoor rainforest shower/bath, and unlimited use of our suntan area, labyrinth and group kitchen replete with refrigerator, gas range, laundry facilities, propane-burning barbecue grill and covered picnic/dining area. A 5-star bistro, a convenience store, hot tubs, massage therapy and kayak rentals are just a 1/2 mile walk downhill. Cafes, several banks, 2 post offices, a MacDonald's, an awesome grocery store and fruit stand, and the local Farmer's Market are all within 1 1/2 miles in either direction.

We recommend applying 2 to 4 months prior to the time you wish to join us as lodging is limited, we intentionally keep only 2 guest rooms available, space tends to fill quickly, and we operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. A hui hou! (Until we see you!)
