If you are thinking of going to Hawaii to refresh your body and mind, Lumeria Maui could be an interesting destination. Lumeria is a holistic educational and wellbeing retreat located at the gateway to upcountry Maui, and it offers courses and activities geared towards wellness and personal growth – such as yoga, meditation, and horticulture. In addition it includes nutritious farm-to-table dining options, as well as access to master holistic teachers and healers.
The venue also hosts a number of business and organizational meetings, events and retreats with groups ranging from Lululemon, CNN to TedX Maui. Lumeria’s historic facilities have been restored and offer a unique setting for self-exploration, healing, and learning on Maui’s North Shore. From the farm-to-table menus and classes at the Café at Lumeria, to the healing treatments and therapies offered through the Wellbeing Center, the educational, cultural, and spiritual practices of Maui are embedded holistically into the visitor’s experience.
Lumeria Maui has hosted MaiTai Global, a network of extraordinary entrepreneurs, innovators and water athletes dedicated to philanthropic efforts protecting the world’s oceans, and the Wounded Warrior Project, a U.S.-based veterans’ charity service focused on the aid and assistance of injured service men and women. MaiTai Global has become a destination for entrepreneurs seeking to fund new endeavors with successful tech icons, many from Silicon Valley and around the globe.
Nainoa Thompson of the Polynesian Voyage Society delivered a keynote speech to MaiTai event attendees while Hawaiian elder Kahu Lyons Naone imparted wisdom to the veterans attending the Wounded Warrior Project retreat. “My approach was the ancient indigenous warrior meets the modern warrior,” says Naone. “I wanted them to meet another kind of warrior, an older, more traditional warrior…I wanted them to [understand] they could heal and recover from their injuries.”
Lumeria Maui is developing as an ideal destination for hosting events, meetings and wellness escapes for business and non-profit organizations alike.
