Venture to the lush tropical north shore of Maui for an intimate and expansive Mystical Alchemy experience. More than just a yoga retreat, this program offers deep mystical transformation for those on a path of healing, rejuvenation, clarity and empowerment.
The journey begins with a gourmet world fusion plant based supper followed by a welcoming ceremony where guests set their intention and begin their process of metamorphosis entering a safe and healing chrysalis of infinite possibility.
Each day of this retreat builds upon the others starting with an initiation through practices that support the process of dissolving all that is no longer serving. The next step of the journey is then to activate, reclaim and integrate all parts of the psyche's energy, wisdom and gifts, and to discover the highest next steps and path.
This program is a beautifully curated alchemical process that includes yoga, breath work, hammock yoga, sound healing, fire circles and a plant based gourmet vegetarian diet.
Just as powerfully transformative as the practices are, the location offers an amazing opportunity to be immersed in one of the safest subtropical Nature environments in the world.
Located at a majestic mostly off-the-grid bohemian temple sanctuary that features gorgeous statuary, tropical flower, fruit and vegetable gardens, as well as, a spa that is available for unlimited leisurely use.
Also included are two personal private transformational sessions, and there is plenty of time in the afternoons to explore the island, get to the beach and visit waterfalls along the famous Road to Hana just minutes away.

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.

"I was in terrible need to put everything on hold and planned a solo getaway to reconnect with nature. I googled and found this retreat Black Swan Temple, I am glad that I chose this place. My experience here was incredibly wonderful. Heather and Donny are two kind-hearted souls who make your experience a life changing one. The structure of the program is well balanced, along with aerial yoga play, live sound healing and meditation, they served healthy and delicious plant-based food. Heather is an amazing cook. Donny played live music which transformed the whole experience of meditation and sound healing. My favorite part was the outdoor shower. It was just magical, everything was like a treat. Highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for healing and rejuvenating experience. I will visit this place again with my friends for sure. Thank you, Heather and Donny!"
"I can't say enough great things about how wonderful my time was at this retreat. The food was superb, the yoga was fantastic, and the music/ sound healing was beyond what I could have imagined. Heather and Donny are so welcoming and outstanding at what they do. I feel so fortunate to have experienced such heeling and relaxation in such a beautiful setting."
"My husband and I had a wonderful experience at The Black Swan Temple. Heather and Donny are both kind, down to earth people who made us feel comfortable right away. The arial yoga was amazing. Heather is an extraordinary teacher who helped make it easy for scaredy-cats like me to get into every pose and feel safe doing it. The meditations and sound healings were truly transformative; especially because Donny was playing live music through it and he's actually a talented, professional musician! The food was delicious and the room we stayed in was very comfortable. We feel restored with new insights which we are still applying back home. Highly recommend this retreat to anyone of any age who is looking for a healing, rejuvenating, super fun experience. Thank you Heather and Donny!"
"It was a wonderful, uplifting experience!...The food was a beautiful vegan delicious treat, cooked with love and richness. the swing experience was great with the super teaching of Heather and always with live sound, perfect!! All sound healings and meditations just a big pleasure and a deep experience. Lodging in the small little temple just perfect, the outside shower and the hot tub just great experience. Heather and Donny did everything with care and great sharing quality! I felt well treated, safe and seen. The yoga is very soft and any beginner can just join in.Thank you so much, will come back!!"
"This retreat was much more than I expected- in the best way! The accommodations were very beautiful and comfortable and the location was fantastic. They had a swim spa, infrared sauna, hot tub, fire pit and more! It was such a healing experience and there was no judgement for various levels of ability. I couldn't keep up with the demanding yoga poses and never felt ashamed for it. The spirituality aspect was very new to me and I loved it- so many different teachings. Heather is an inspiring spiritual goddess and Donny is a renaissance man with great musical talent. They are a wonderful, supportive couple and that feels good to be around. I admire all they have created and what they are sharing. Uplifting and invigorating. So much love and encouragement to be yourself."
"Donny and Heather are blessed souls and have created a sacred space for healing, rejuvenation and nurturance. Their beautifully sculpted grounds created an instant connection to the land for me, as well as their teachings about the people of Hawaii and their rituals. The daily offerings were powerful and thoughtful and helped me to enhance my divine light. Heather’s heart centered/hatha and ariel yoga as Donny played live music and ambient sounds helped me go deeper and connect to source on a whole other level. The sound healing and guided mediations brought me great visions, clarity and release. The cuisine was beautiful and of the highest vibration. Having leisurely access to the spa amenities and the night EFT teachings and rituals were icing on the cake. The Black Swan Temple felt like home and the addition of access to the portal for continued practice and growth beyond the retreat is such a gift."
"We just returned from our incredible retreat~ it was such a magical, amazing experience! So needed after 2 stressful pandemic years. I felt such an emotional release of stress in the body and mind. The food was incredible with large healthy, delicious spreads for breakfast and lunch. The hosts, Donnie and Heather were so accommodating with every request. The grounds and rooms were very lovely and comfortable! The amenities available were also plentiful and abundant- with infra-red sauna, hot tub, etc. Also Heather made the aerial yoga completely accessible to newbies! One thing that also makes this retreat so over the top is they Heather and Donnie are both certified in multiple healing modalities and I enjoyed 1:1 sessions with each of them as well as the group aerial and mat based yoga. Highly, highly recommend this retreat!!"
"This was my second time, and third week attending Black Swan Temple retreat. . . Heather and Donny are wonderful humans and create a truly positive, rejuvenating experience. I look forward to going back again! Their place is comfortable and beautiful, the food is healthy and full of delicious flavors, the yoga is restorative, strengthening, and so much fun, and the sound healings, meditations are transformative, and the people are connected and wonderful to spend time with. The schedule is great because it leaves afternoons open to either stay at the retreat and enjoy the space there or get out and enjoy adventures around the island. Thanks so much Heather and Donny for the wonderful week. . . I feel so light, positive, and rejuvenated!"
"I am on a personal journey for physical and mental health and I cannot express enough thanks and gratitude to the hosts Heather and Donny. The retreat was more than I could have imagined. The property was beautiful, peaceful and inviting. I enjoyed waking up to the sounds of nature and the calmness that surrounded me. It was like stress did not exist there and I had time to think, reflect, meditate, let go, heal and find my balance again. The gourmet plant based meals are exactly that. I found a new apperception for the foods I choose to nourish my body with. The daily mediation, yoga and sound healing was phenomenal. Letting go of things that no longer serve me was truly life changing. An amazing journey!"
"I had a wonderful experience there. The yoga session is heart healing and I had a good sleep in the cozy bungalow. This meant a lot to me because I thought I would never have a good sleep after the trauma I went through. We had a group of five people. The size of the group is perfect. It's small enough that everyone had chances to interact with each other and have meaningful conversations, and it's not too small to feel lonely."
The retreat really met my expectations - Heather and Donny are so welcoming, the food was amazing, and the sessions very interesting and accessible to anyone. The aerial yoga was absolutely my favorite part - I had never tried the yoga swings before and had so much fun exploring this new toy! Heather was a great instructor and made me feel very safe on the swings, but also throughout the retreat. Some of the best parts were the connections we created with the other participants, and all the space provided to think, reflect, meditate, and connect with ourselves. Thank you for this transformative and fun experience.
I went to this retreat with an open heart and mind with no expectations. Donny and Heather helped guide me down a path of healing. I feel emotionally, mentally, energy and physically a way I had no idea existed. This retreat changed my life forever!!!
"I just attended my 2nd retreat with Heather and Donny at Black Swan Temple, and it was an even more transformational experience than the first time I attended. In short, I feel nourished, supported, and renewed. The lodging, food, hospitality, community, and intentionality of this place is really special. The yoga classes, the private sessions with Heather and Donny, the home cooked plant based meals, the support to visit Mt. Haleakala -- I felt so connected to the aina, the land, and my fellow participants. Grateful for the opportunity to heal. I will definitely be back :)"
"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."
"It was excellent and everything I wanted. I wanted a perspective change, a challenge, fun time, good food and wonderful time with me alone and nature. This retreat had it all. Meeting and learning from such accomplished people like Heather and Donny gave me all the action items I need to work on. The Aerial Yoga and inversions were my absolute favorite."
"Magical healing retreat!! This retreat checks all of the boxes: mind, body, and spirit. This is a fantastic place to relax one's mind. The sound healing is a sensory immersive experience that truly opens one's mind to new possibilities! The yoga and aerial yoga are both challenging and restorative. Heather is very clear in the way she teaches the classes. I awoke each morning excited for what was next in the aerial yoga classes."
"My experience at Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat was amazing and powerful. Heather was knowledgeable and kind. She just emanated such positive energy! I learned so much about myself and left there feeling grounded and connected to the earth. Will definitely try to make this a yearly event."
"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."
"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."
