Event Description

Limited to 27 Participants.

This Advanced Lomilomi Retreat is designed to help you deepen your practice, receive from other advanced practitioners and elevate your gifts as a Sacred Lomi practitioner.  The incredibly serene and uplifting energy of The Mountain Retreat, nestled in the majestic mountain forest of North Carolina, is an incredible place for  transformation and life changing reflection.

At the Mountain Advanced Retreat, we slow down and focus on:

• Refinement of Sacred Lomi runs and techniques

• Aloha – Holding a space of love and acceptance for self and others

• Ho’oponopono – Cultivating alignment with self and others

• Ho’olohe – Deep Listening

• Ho’omālamalama – Deep nurturing and restoration

• Ho’omaluhia – Cultivating peace within ourselves and in our relationships

• Aho – Deepening breath-work and its support of our life and practice

• ‘Ike – Bringing awareness to our perspective and how it influences life

• Po – Delving into the great mystery of who we are through dreams, meditation and journeys

• Pule – Bringing intention, chant and prayer into our sessions and life

Sacred Lomi students, practitioners and teachers will gather together to delve deeply into the essence of Sacred Lomi®, ho’oponopono and inner transformation. This once-a-year event is the only opportunity for students who have successfully completed our Home Study Course to attend one of our Advanced Lomilomi Retreats!

“I felt so filled by every soul’s presence (whether there in the physical or not!) and so strengthened and supported to just “BE”! Such joy in my heart for this journey! I am aware of the process of integrating this new growth into my life in each moment, and how Aloha can always take me to that place of abiding joy! I hold you all in my heart, GRATEFULLY! Flying with you in spirit! ALOHA”

About the Instructor


Tom Cochran spent eight years in Hawaii studying Hawaiian shamanism, the culture and the sacred art of Lomi Lomi. His deep love for the land, ancient spiritual traditions and this powerful form of shamanic healing echoes through his teaching. “This work supports us in opening and remembering the majesty of our being and the power of our essence.

Donna Jason is a filmmaker, teacher and writer committed to the transformational power ofthe creative arts. She has an extensive background in theater, dance, creative visualization and healing through the emotional body. “Our true essence always serves us. When we journey through layers of our identity, healing and accepting hurt places, we reconnect with our authentic self . It is our core self that we long for, that we’re lonely for and that houses our truth, beauty and power.”

Lomi Lomi Massage

While the term simply means “massage” is Hawaiian, lomi lomi is a massage modality based on ancient Hawaiian healing techniques. It places heavy emphasis on long, flowing strokes, rhythm and approaching every client with love and acceptance. You will find several different approaches available through lomi lomi CE classes, and course focuses range from deep relaxation to clinical applications.

The basics of lomi lomi can be picked up through a brief introductory course. The emphasis on rhythm and flow can help any therapist improve their sessions. Longer courses will help you master mind-body healing, but immersion courses and retreats are recommended for massage therapists that want to offer the most authentic lomi lomi sessions they can offer.
