Mother of Fire Retreat


Maui, Hawaii

January 17-21, 2019


the very fabric of the universe...

Embedded in your cells is the very stuff stars are made of. From you, creations and life are birthed. In you, the great secrets of the cosmos reside. You gave rise to the very fire that molded the islands which pierce the sky and sea. Fiercely reverent of your home, offering your body to grow new life. Mother to Pele, goddess of fire and creation. You are Haumea.
