Join us for seven soul-fuelled days immersed in the elements on sacred land, Minjerribah, (North Stradbroke Island). 

..as we share the blessings of knowledge through..

Hawaiian Heartworks Lomi Lomi

Level 1 & 2


Minjerribah is the perfect location to immerse yourself in the cultivation and practice of Hawaiian Style Bodywork 

held deeply in the rhythmical pulse of the ocean & the elements.  There really is no other place like North Straddie, a special & potent place to reconnect, learn & grow into who you are at this powerful time on the planet.

Stepping off the mainland & out of the normal day to day, bares power beyond measure.  We are no longer as

strongly entwined with the energetic threads of the to do's, the responsibilities, the obligations & titles, 

which allows you to return to a clearer state of equilibrium, your heart & your centre.

Our Retreat location will be, a luxurious two storey beachhouse overlooking Deadman's Beach,

where we invite you to peel back the layers & return to source;

From this place, we provide all that you need to develop the qualities & skills necessary

to become an amazing and proficient bodyworker.    





Immersive Training Retreat
 * no prior massage experience is necessary *

Our immersive retreats are curated to transmit ancient teachings into a modern context with absolute integrity & presence,

whilst simultaneously honouring your personal journey with compassion & care.  Retreat Immersions with us are so much

more than just learning a technique or a skill  as together we bring 40 years combined personal practice within the healing

therapeutic arts.  We facilitate a Journey-like experience throughout the week, riding the waves of group energy,

the ocean & you.  We invite you to drop in to deeper parts of yourself, to open to more of who you actually are

& in the process embody a new therapeutic treatment to facilitate healing.

Our intention is to open a space that feels supportive for both your learning & your healing.  Our training provides an integrative progression from the Foundations of Level 1, through to the deeper more refined embodiment of Level 2.  

A week long immersion for you on so many levels:

  • unplug & immerse in nature

  • take time for yourself to reflect & reset

  • learn, grow & expand your skills 

  • give & receive many hours of deep & nourishing massage

  • feel reconnected to your body, heart & emotions

  • regain focus, direction & clarity

  • dissolve the worries of mind & return to what's important

  • become more attuned to your emotions & state of wellbeing 

  • revitalise & replenish your body, heart & mind

  • enjoy connection with self & others

  • feel grounded, centred, empowered & strong

  • remember who the fuck you are, just sayin'

The first three days will guide you in to the beautiful & potent Level 1 ~ Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage. This potent massage technique invites healing, heart connection, nourishment & therapeutic release. Over these first three days you will explore & learn the art of Giving & Receiving, Huna Philosophy, Heart based Embodiment Practices, Elemental connection, Ancient Wisdom,

Group Healing Practices, Ocean Medicine & more...


Together we will return to simplicity, ground & nourish the body, listen to the voice of the heart & transmit this potency through

our hands into a 1.5hr rhythmical & deeply nourishing Hawaiian massage


On the fourth day, you INTEGRATE & REST, an amazing opportunity to swim in the healing waters of Straddie, take a long

& slow walk along the beaches & headlands, take rest, practice what you have learnt & just chill out.  This integration

day also prepares you to open to the depth of Level 2.  


The next three days will allow a deepening into the full practice of Lomi Lomi where you will learn 

deep fascial techniques, refine your touch, specific heart processes & emotional clearing to

support this new knowledge to become embodied.

Throughout these three days we will explore how to deepen your capacity to work with your clients, opening to an expanded awareness 'Hakalau' through dropping into your own heart with greater presence & intimacy.  This transforms a good

treatment into an exceptional experience for your client, providing a space for profound healing & connection.  

On completion of Level 1 & 2 you will have learnt & received a powerful transmission of embodied Hawaiian healing practices

supporting you to feel confident in your ability to share a potent 2 hour+ Lomi Lomi Massage.  

This 7 day healing process invites you to go within, to feel safe, to open to yourself as well as each other..  

A potent opportunity to breakthrough old patterns,  unite with your vibrant heart & rebirth from the Winter months

& re-emerge into Spring renewed & more at home in your skin.
