Join us for Two Separate Weeks on the Big Island
Students will spend two separate weeks in 2018, on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, at Joy’s House, where you can visit nearby Akaka Falls, Laupahoehoe Point, the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, and much more. The trade winds will blow, the sun will shine, you’ll have days to explore the island and you’ll be in good company. While the workshops are primarily for students of the Mystery School, if space allows, some classes may be open to the public.
Want to Bring Your Partner or Your Whole Family?
Sometimes participants want to bring their friends or families. Joy can help you to find nearby Airbnb lodging. They are welcome to join the group on the rest days (or you can go off on your own ), and they’re welcome to join us for some of our group dinners, and some evenings.
We provide 3 delicious organic meals per day, with abundant snacks and beverages. We meet special requests for dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan, non-dairy, non-wheat and non-gluten. We provide plenty of protein, and there are poultry or fish or tofu options at almost every meal.
Participants usually share a rental car (4 or 5 people per car), which helps keep expenses down. We can help you to make those connections. You can fly into Hilo or Kona, but Hilo is closer (less than an hour) and it will be easier to coordinate a rental car if you all come into Hilo. Transportation from the airport will be provided.
We have excellent nearby masseuses. They do various forms of massage, including the well-loved Lomilomi Hawaiian massage.
