The Bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head that connect to different aspects of your life. Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreats calls all of the points you touch when using this modality “The Bars.” The Bars store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs that you have ever had about anything. Every thought, feeling, emotion, idea, attitude, decision, or belief that you have fixed in place solidifies the energy and limits your capacity to be generative in that area and to have something different show up in your life with ease.
If you’ve been trying to change something, but haven’t been successful, it's because you have to unlock the polarity and change the energy. Running The Bars does this with ease! The Bars, when lightly touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn't allow you to receive. Judgment begins to dissolve from within and is replaced by a sense of ease, peace, and space.
Becoming the Mystical Alchemist
Learning to get out of your own way! Alchemy is a timeless, sacred art, to create the philosophers’ stone. The alchemists’ art is to become an instrument for the incarnating thoughts to make itself real in time and space. An awakened consciousness, which, pervades, in-forms, and gives rise to all creation.
Non-violent Communication Coaching
Learn the basics Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence, the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart. NVC also assumes that everyone shares the same, basic human needs, and that each of your actions is a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.
Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreats offers a delicious gourmet plant-based vegetarian meal program that our clients rave about! We use the finest organic and as locally sourced as possible ingredients. The menu has a world flare and is primarily vegan and gluten-free. The program includes supper on the night of your arrival, followed by breakfast and lunch daily. Our guests usually love to go explore the island in the afternoons and enjoy the local cuisine for supper. Arrangements can be make for dinners on site at at additional fee. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs in advance.
If you love our food you might want to take home our World Fusion Plant Based Recipe Book which is based on our Retreat Recipes!
This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl and a place that the Hawai’ian royalty received training. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels and highly populated areas, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature than this nature temple will be paradise.
You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature. The 2.5-acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon, and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit. The Black Swan Temple also has giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers, gardens, and two temple cats. The temple is somewhat rustic and does not have air conditioning.
Black Swan Temple has pretty good cell service, especially for Verizon. We do have internet, however it is not available everywhere on property. We do have hot spots in certain areas. It is recommended that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your stay.

"Unexpectedly wonderful in every way. The pictures of the cabin don’t do it justice. The yoga and music was on point with exactly what I needed, as were the afternoons connecting with the others at the retreat and exploring the road to Hana. The food was brilliant, especially the lunches. Thank you to Heather and Donny both for the nurturing environment and beautiful experience. If you are considering a short retreat to nature to recharge mentally, physically, emotionally- don’t think twice about this one, book it."
"I highly recommend this Yoga Retreat for anyone who is looking to unwind, relax and try something new. The hosts are extraordinary and accommodating. You are made to feel welcome like an old friend who is visiting a very dear friend. The food was good. You also will enjoy the fact that time for sightseeing is built into the schedule."
"This yoga retreat was very special. Between the aerial yoga, sound healing and guided meditations I felt both energized and peaceful. The food was equally delicious and healthy and made with lots of love. The retreat grounds are magical and welcoming and a great place to both unwind and recharge. I will recommend it to my friends and return soon. Much gratitude to Heather and Donny for sharing their piece of Maui paradise and their loving kindness with us."
"Heather and Donnie are the real deal! They are a beautiful couple and they are truly living what they teach. Spending time here was a nice cocoon, which is exactly what I needed after a hectic year. The sound healings/meditations were marvelous and really helped my nervous system reboot after such a hectic year. If you are looking for something off the beaten path, away from all the tourists, and a place to experience the magic of Maui, then this is the spot for you. Oh and the food was amazing!"
"This was the best week of my life. The Black Swan Temple is located in the exotic Maui Huelo jungle and the serene bungalows are so relaxing. You will sleep to the sound of jungle plants and rainfall. The homecooked vegan/vegetarian cuisine is absolutely delicious and vibrantly flavorful. The daily two hours of aerial yoga and sound healing is freeing and detoxing to both the body and mind. Heather and Donny are wonderful hosts-- they really make this retreat feel as personal as possible. If you want a serene week of healing in Hawaii's most beautiful island, look no further than this retreat!!! I will be dreaming about it and reminiscing for a lifetime."
"I has a marvelous and transformational experience with the yoga and sound healing retreat. Both instructors Heather Salmon and Donny Regulato offered meaningful insights during the one on one sessions and worked harmoniously together on the musical and meditative components. The vegetarian cuisine was colorful, beautiful and delicious! Time ran out before I could enjoy all aspects of the experience, so I want to return. I enjoyed the private sessions with Heather and with Donny and appreciated the actual content of their program. Even with the daily heavy but sporadic rain, This trip was 2 thumbs up! Thank you Heather and Donny, see you again!
"I have only done a few yoga classes in my life. I am 62, and I was nervous to place myself in a yoga retreat for seven days. But I went for it and I am glad I did. It was a fantastic experience, well beyond what I could’ve hoped for. So if you are sitting on the fence, not sure something like this is a “up your alley“, trust me, jump in. Heather and Donnie bring a very unique Experience that is a mix of verbal journeys that are beautifully matched with musical background sound effects. It is an adventure for sure and life-changing. There is truly magic there. You just have to be open to catch it!"
"My wife and I had a great time. It was definitely an out-of-the-box experience for us. Heather and Donny are super nice and caring people. We really felt at home. We didn’t really know what to expect with the yoga and only eating a vegetarian diet for a few days. But it was fantastic. They are excellent cooks and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back again one day! I definitely recommend booking the treehouse with a private bathroom. It made things a lot easier especially at night."
"Wonderful experience! I was hesitant to attend given I hadn't tried aerial yoga before but the yoga swings were easy to work and Heather's instruction was simple to follow and patient. The stretches you get from the swing are amazing. Even better than the yoga stretching is the mindfulness practice that Heather and Donnie provide each day. So powerful and transformative. If you're thinking of doing this retreat - do it - the universe is talking to you!"
"I came to this retreat for guidance and peace and it is exactly what I got. I only spent 4 days there, but felt so much better after just those 4 days. Heather’s cooking is absolutely amazing. Donnie and Heather are both wonderful people who are doing what they love to help people and it is such a great environment. Their assistants Jules and Kim were SO kind and eager to help with anything needed. Very good energy there. The housing is so unique and beautiful and I felt it was very clean. Yoga and meditation are so unique here with Donnie playing sound healing music in the background."
"I was looking for a place to slow down and reconnect in the aftermath of a turbulent year and this retreat was the perfect place to facilitate that. Heather and Donny really offer something special. The fusion of yoga and live sound healing really set the tone to help me go deeper into my practice. By combining that with the individual healing/coaching sessions and intention-setting ceremony, Heather and Donny really go out of their way to create an experience that is all about reconnecting with yourself and your higher goals in life. Other things I also loved about this retreat, include: The meals were incredibly nutritious, homemade, and *delicious*. The pace of the yoga classes and guided sound meditations were perfect. I never felt that things dragged on, or were too short. There was also plenty of time between meals and classes to prepare and get ready. I loved having my own room where I could go find solace to journal, but then sharing communal space for meals. In this way, it was the perfect balance of solitude and enjoying other people's company. I met a lot of really *great* people on this trip, which was awesome for me as a solo traveler. Aerial yoga is *fun*!! If you are new to it, like I was, Heather is the perfect person to guide you through it. Donny gives a great life-coaching session. I highly recommend it. It put more wind back in my sails :)"
"The food was amazing. Loved the cocooning and sound healing, just what we needed. A good balance of sessions and free time to explore the island. Heather and Donny are great and gracious hosts. They even let us borrow their snorkeling gear and beach blankets."
