Lokahi Guild Collaborative Adventure!
Networks for Training and Development, Inc., The Lokahi Guild,
Cuba Wellness Adventures, Las Aguas Fund, and Butterfly Effect Maui
are thrilled to offer our first collaboration in CUBA, February 2019!!
Calling all those involved in health and wellness work of one sort or another! Here's an amazing opportunity to travel to an incredible location few have really experienced, learn a variety of spiritual and wellness practices from local experts, exchange wellness tools and be a part of a seva yoga / of-service-give-back-volunteer-on-vacation opportunity, and experience the culture of beautiful people by living and learning side-by-side with them.
February 15—22, 2019
This 8 day / 7 night retreat is not for everyone..... this is for those who wish to expand not just their skills as a wellness practitioner but also their personal self and deepen their calling. Together we will learn in a true exchange of culture, beliefs, values, and skills. We will live in local homes (not hotels), learn daily from kindred Cuban souls doing similar wellness and health-related work, teach them skills and tools we use for ourselves and others, offer free services to local communities, assist in local projects to help however we can, enjoy incredible music and dance, eat amazing local foods, and be a part of a growing connection with Cuba in a true exchange of learning and culture.
This retreat is a first of its kind..... a collaboration between Cuba Wellness Adventures, the Lokahi Guild, Networks for Training and Development, Inc., and local Cuban community projects... and one of the first activities of the Las Aguas Fund, to help support sustainability in Cuban wellness communities.
February 22—25, 2019
Not enough?? Then consider joining us for 3 nights / 4 extra days in Havana following this learning and seva retreat in Cienfuegos!

We will stay in local homes, and have private drivers and Cuban guides all while exploring and soaking in the beauty and excitement of Havana.
Havana Area, Cuba!

Still not enough??? Add on to your Cuban adventure by staying 3 more nights / 4 additional days by participating in the Butterfly Effect Maui's first event in Cuba! Known for her world-wide events helping women and girls get out on the water in non-competitive fun, Tatiana Howard (amazing Maui wind surfer, kite boarder, SUP'er, water woman, and founder of the Butterfly Effect Maui) and Cuba Wellness Adventures will be hosting another first-ever in Cuba.... a women's paddling experience helping local girls experience the fun of ocean sports!
