Hawaii Retreat - Last full day

It was an incredible day on the island. They say we're having summer weather right now. Hotter than the winter usually is, and No Rain!
We started the day with a meditation out on the point at 6:30 am, to watch the sun rise on this full moon day. It was truly divine. We finished with some impromptu partner yoga stretches. And then as we were taking pictures, 3 humpback whales showed up, breaching and spouting! What grace! They did it several times! What a perfect way to end our morning. And today was the day to focus on joy!!!

After lunch, I got an Ayurvedic massage and fell asleep. Tough life!

After dinner, we had a floating full moon kirtan! We had a kirtan planned, but since it was full moon and we hadn't been to the hot pools yet, in front of the ocean, we decided to have our kirtan there! Kelley and her husband played harmonium and Tablas on the edge, and the rest of us floated around on our foam noodles and joyfully sang along. What a great way to chant the names of the divine!! Now it's bed time!
