Manifest on Maui Retreat

March 4-11, 2024


Join Leslie Jose for 8-days/7 nights exploring, connecting & manifesting on the powerful and magical island of Maui.
‘Manifest on Maui’ will nourish our lives to be more fully in step with our true nature, expanding possibilities, enriching how we walk our walk and of course experiencing the wonders & adventures of Maui; its culture, people & beauty.
Our accommodations will merge us into 3 exquisite houses joined by tropical garden paths over-looking a 150’ waterfall and greeting the rising sun over the expanse of the pacific ocean. Each one a glorious space with spectacular views, luscious gardens, hot tubs and decks to soak it all up.
During the past 2 Novembers Katie O’Connell & I co-lead ‘Adventures in Spirit on Maui’ retreats.  It has been a joy, a thrill & an honor sharing with her & our retreat attendees the communities, special places, adventures, cultural values & traditions I’ve come to know over the past 12 years of visiting, training and exploring on Maui.
This year Katie’s traveling shoes will be taking a group to Mexico in November.  AND…  ~ Maui and I aren’t done sharing the powerful and generous offerings of beauty, personal growth and adventure.
~ I’m inviting you to join me for this extraordinary opportunity ~


Join me March 4-11 2024 for a spirit-filled, play-filled, growth-filled, thought-filled, beauty-filled, adventurous retreat on Maui.
Our hosts will again be Hale Akua Organic Farm & Eco Retreat. I feel the growing O’hana (family) with all the staff and workers and look forward to building on it and sharing their joy and Aloha with you who join me.

  • Sharing the experience of being 10,000 feet up on the summit of Haleakalā.  The top of Maui ~ sure feels like the top of the world.  There is no way to explain the life changing experience of being up there.  Just looking at some of the photos from the summit, you can see in our faces magic manifests.

  • Opportunity to gain awareness and respect for indigenous history/culture/traditions from locals generous with “talking story”

All adventures, classes, and programs are optional. Do as much or as little as you like to ‘Manifest on Maui’ your highest, best, most outstanding adventure.  Our exquisite accommodations by themselves can manifest a magnificent time spent; you might just choose to stay put at Hale Akua.


Make this retreat a perfect match for you by incorporating adventures and activities that nourish the blend that is right for you. Investigating some of these activities could truly make this a trip of a life time. (The below possible added adventures are financed on your own.  I have lots of suggestions.  Any cost associated with these added adventures is not included in the price of the retreat).

  • Adventures to waterfalls, beaches, spectacular vistas along the roadsides and hiking trails
  • Drive the infamous Road to Hana & adventure with the many exciting surprises along the way: Kahanu Gardens, Aunty Sandy’s & Keanae Peninsula, lava tube, black sands beach, Waianapanapa State park (reservations needed at WSP), waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls….. and more; like Thai food by Pranee ~ OMGosh I’d fly the 5,000 + miles just to have a meal there.
  • It will still be whale season! -scheduling a paddle on the West Maui shoreline or setting up a sunset cruise on your own or with others from the group to experience these majestic creatures can add something very very special to an already wondrous time.
  • There’s numerous opportunity to hit the shops and cultural centers, the lavender farm or perhaps a tour of Maui’s winery.
  • Ride the ferry to Lanai where you can experience a spectacular beach and snorkel spot. Plus, being whale season, likely see some tails, slaps, maybe even a breach as the ferry travels across from Maui to Lanai.


What is not included:

  • Flights
  • Travel Insurance
  • Several meals so you can investigate the amazingly delicious local restaurants, food trucks, markets, and foodie huts on your own.
  • Transportation from/to the airport on arrival and departure days
  • Rental car — sharing a rental with other attendees makes this an inexpensive way to roam on your own to town, to the beach, to a vista to watch the whales, etc. I will be renting a van, so whenever possible we can minimise the number of cars going to certain sites.  You will still want your own transportation.
  • Adventures and activities that you head off on, incidentals, personal needs, snacks, etc.
  • Tips: such as housekeeping and our chef.
Every time Maui manifests my returning, there are profound and lasting shifts in all layers of my being. 
I’m inviting you to join me & experience the same.
