February 11 - 16, 2018Hawaii Island Retreat Center, Big Island of Hawaii

A Holistic Digital Detox
Retreat in Paradise

Retreat  . . . Relax . . . Renew . . . Recharge

Refresh . . .  Restore . . . Reconnect

While technology enhances our lives, it can also distract us. How refreshing would it be to give yourself a few days in a pristine natural environment, and remember who you are without electronic devices? Join Alan Cohen and like-minded peers for a lush, luxurious week of holistic digital detox.

For four glorious days, place your handheld device aside and immerse yourself in inspiring seminars, a heavenly Hawaiian retreat center with stunning ocean views, soul-nourishing healthy meals, massage, yoga, and trips to hidden beaches, waterfalls, sacred valleys, Hawaiian spiritual culture, and other adventures that will remind you that life does not depend on an object you plug in. When you go home you will have a whole new perspective to master your tech world.

Each day includes a seminar facilitated by Alan Cohen, to help you get clear on where your passion lives, remember your purpose, and make any course corrections in favor of your spirit. We will explore how to achieve greater work/life balance and bring our technology into perspective so we can live with it or without it. Emphasis will be on authenticity, connection, relationship, aliveness, and wellness of mind, body, and spirit.

Temporarily trade your smartphone for the healing sound of wind, waves, and birds, and soak in live music. We promise you won’t be bored. You will be totally filled, and remember how plugged in you are to the greater grid.

The Hawaii Island Retreat  is one of the most beautiful and nurturing retreat sites in all the Hawaiian islands. Spread over 50 secluded acres, the center offers stunning ocean vistas, super comfortable accommodations, fabulous organic cuisine, a spa, pool, hot  tub, massage, gardens, and plenty of places to walk or rest.



Alan Cohen, M.A. facilitator, is the author of 25 popular inspirational books, including the bestselling The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, the award-winning  A Deep Breath of Life, and the classic Are You as Happy as Your Dog? He is a contributing writer for the New York Times #1 bestselling series Chicken Soup for the Soul, and his books have been translated into 30 foreign languages. His work has been featured on Oprah.com and in USA Today, The Washington Post and the book 101 Top Experts.
