Reconnect and Recharge in Paradise Kauai Retreats Create Space for Play, Healing and Joy
uthor and teacher Dena Marie has announced a new offering this year giving guests an insider’s experience in one of her favorite corners of the planet. “I am creating custom retreats with my knowledge of the community on beautiful island of Kauai, in the Hawaiian Islands,” Dena Marie says. “I’ve spent years traveling to Kauai and creating relationships with wonderful local healers, artists and adventure tour leaders,” she continues. “This allows me to put together the perfect trip for people who want to go beyond the tourist spots and really experience meaningful travel, filled with interesting people and the potential for lifelong connections and amazing memories.” Dena Marie works closely with Jeanne Russell, owner of Dolphin Touch Healing Center. Russell is a Reiki master and intuitive healer and caters to visitor’s personal preferences at Dolphin Touch, where retreat goers typically stay during their time in Kauai. “You can receive daily healing sessions, such as crystal bowl and tuning fork sound therapy sessions, massage, acupuncture and more,” Russell explains. “We also offer fun and interactive trips to beaches, go whale watching, paddle boarding, play Kauai disc golf or view sacred sites,” she finishes. Dena Marie uses a highly personalized approach to retreat planning
in order to match an individual with experiences that will be right for them. “I start with a conversation about why they want to visit Hawaii, and their goals for their trip,” she says. “We talk about their preferences for everything like activity levels to dining options. Depending on their goals and history, Dena Marie might recommend a particular healer, destination or activity. Once the planning is completed, Dena Marie makes arrangements for airport pick ups, overnight stays at Dolphin Touch Healing Center, and schedules healing sessions, excursions and more. Guests are responsible for booking their own airfare, but all other costs are included in the price of the retreats, which can range from $1000-2000 depending on length of stay and activities. “Dolphin Touch Healing Center is the perfect setting for this amazing experience,” Dena Marie says. “The beach is only one block away. There is a lovely bike path waiting to be explored.” For more information, call Dena Marie at 425-350-5448 or visit LiftYour SpiritsWithDenaMarie.com.
