Connect, Play, and Learn with Us!

When people connect genuinely and are given the space to see and hear one another, the most surprising and magical outcomes unfold.

Join us in on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii for a retreat of wisdom changemakers.

Step out of the busy world of constant activity.

Connect more fully with yourself and nature.

Listen deeply to what is emerging for you in life and work as you move forward.

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.”

Our Venue

Wisdom 2.0: The Intersect will be held on the Kohala Coast at the beautiful Fairmont Orchid hotel on the Big Island. An ideal location to enjoy natural surroundings while diving more deeply into conversations about our greater purposes in the world, and the intersects that exist in all of our efforts.

Most of the earth's climate zones are represented on the Big Island, from arid coastal and desert areas, to lush old-growth rainforests and alpine mountain slopes, presenting a wondrous diversity of landscape and experience.

The Big Island of Hawaii has long been known as the healing island. According to Hawaiian legends, Hawaii's Big Island is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire. The spirit of Pele has a way of cutting through blockages and bringing to light innermost yearnings.

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”
