Yes we are open 🎈Easter chocolate or a KaHuna massage? Both make your brain release serotonin, the happy chemical, but the effects from a KaHuna massage will last longer than chocolate; and then of course there are all the health benefits...
The best advice, treat yourself to a KaHuna massage followed by some Easter chocolate, that's got to be a win-win.

Flying is a magical part of KaHuna practice ✨

Flying is a moving meditation that consists of a range of simple yet profound sequences that takes us out of our heads and into the present moment and our bodies. It also forms the core of the healing dance that makes KaHuna bodywork so unique.

Take a moment to fly today, even if just for 2-5 minutes - and if you feel to share with us how it made you feel?

And if you'd love to learn more about flying join our next KaHuna level 1-2 training - click here www.highspiritsretreat.com.au/upcoming-events/ for all upcoming retreats.

The Roles Royce of all MassagesOriginating from the tropical shores of 🌸 Hawaii, KaHuna massage is a healing process that’s been handed down through generations of Hawaiian families. Similar to a deep tissue massage, therapists of this treatment combine full-body strokes and traditional prayer methods to restore internal balance and harmony. If you’re in need of some serious chill time, KaHuna massage will give you a friendly nudge in the right direction.

The Roles Royce of all Massages

Our transformative KaHuna massage training journey consists of 7 levels and has been developed to support your growth and personal development 💫

Our human body is designed to reflect perfect unity of body, mind and soul. Consequently disharmony in one area mirrors disharmony in other areas.

Long stores of anger, resentment, fear and other negative feelings may manifest as muscular and skeletal soreness, tumors or illnesses. These states can successfully be released using KaHuna Bodywork as part of the healing process.

At our retreats all bodyworkers are trained to support client in their self healing process. As “all power comes from within”, it will be demonstrated how healing takes place for both the giver and the receiver.

Our doors are open for any person who wishes to work for themselves, explore the body, the mind and the spirit and to obtain more balance, energy and love in life.

Sooooooo many memories. But my first experience of High Spirits was when I did my KaHuna level 1&2 in 2007. I was so shy and nervous when I arrived. A walked up the little hill towards the house and one of the Facilitators walked towards me with a warm smile. I nervously put my hand out to shake his and he said, "we hug here" and he gave me a big warm hug. In that moment I knew I had come home. Thanks Ahren Dreaming for not shaking my hand that day ;-)

When we were sitting in a circle and talked about our experiences and memories from the day or week with an amazing group of people. Aloha

Always excitement which turns to nervousness which turns to overwhelmingly being at HOME with my tribe!

Level 1 & 2. Would love to do a refresher one day.

Can't wait to be here in May 💃🙌🌈

Miss it♡♡♡

Beautiful friends! Warm saunas! Gorgeous bodies being massaged! Pregnancy massage with both my babies ❤️

How amazing are women!? 💖

We are extending our early-bird offer for our very popular Spirit of Women Creative Retreat in honour of International Women's Day! Pay just $1,198 (full price $1,398) if you book by Wednesday 10th March 2021.

Give yourself permission to surrender to four glorious, uninterrupted days of making art, free from everyday chores, and responsibilities (except for kindness to yourself and others, of course).

You can explore, brush in one hand, your soul's desire to fully express yourself, and find the juicy, creative voice that's the Essence of You!

Don't think you're creative? Don't worry. No art experience necessary. You will be guided all the way. You will learn acrylic painting, eco-dyeing and printing, and mixed media collage... and if you don't know what any of these are - don't worry, we'll be playing!

The retreat leaves time between sessions to relax and unwind in the beauty of our High Spirits venue. You can soak in the hot tub, stretch out by the pool, relax in the sauna and opt for a pampering KaHuna massage!
