WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS FOR THIS EVENT-  Please check back soon for what is to come!
Surf it, Learn it, Live it. Hanalei, Hawaii. May 4-10, 2013.
  • Do you really want to surf the larger WAVE of your life?
  • How big and gnarly can your life wave get?  How big is TOO big?
  • How GOOD are you willing to let it get?

Alchemy hour: The period of time when a surfer enjoys the best a swell has to offer.  The result is a magical power or process that transmutes the surfer and touches her  soul, characterized by a big ole shit eatin’ grin.

  • Are you a visionary, free spirit, a non- conformist?
  • Are you a troublemaker, a rule breaker, a misfit?
  • Do you see things others don’t?
  • As in, how it could be different?
  • Are you a maverick, a wayseer?
Susan Honnell and Sarah Seidelmann, your hosts for Jazz The Glass in Hanalei, Hawaii 2013Are you irrepressible? So are we.

We are two Nature digging, visionary women who like to make their own rules and are on a mission to make personal transformation. We PLAY and learn how to bend the Universe to our desires. We smile and LAUGH a lot.

This retreat is for WOMEN Only. (Sorry guys! We hope to offer future co-ed retreats).

  • Learn several Ancient techniques including Shamanic Meditation, divination and other ways to connect to the sourced web of life to become a powerful, unstoppable force of nature.

Sound pretty good?  The virgin Jazz the Glass Retreat in 2011 was so amazing we cannot imagine how much fun and transformation will take place in 2013.

Accommodation

Accommodations were selected to create an intimate and private place for connection, journeying, deep rest and easy access to beach and the charming  and bohemian beach town of Hanalei. Everything is a short walk away. No rental car is needed. However, being a Maverick you might like having a car to further explore the North Shore on your own.

There are 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and the house sleeps 10. Rooms are sold on a first come, first serve basis.  You may want to arrive a day ahead in Kauai to be sure that you are present for the first evening when we will all be introducing ourselves and connecting!

Daily Schedule

We want the schedule to be flexible yet even mavericks can benefit from some scheduling if they want to do EPIC things . There will be time to rest, journal, take a walk on the beach, or rest in the sun.  For some it might feel like a lot of activity.  So, be ready to ask your body what it wants to do.  It can be as ACTIVE or as INACTIVE as you like!  This is an opportunity for you to find your perfect balance.   Hanalei is a MAGICAL place … there are many paths to wander and discover on your own!

9 -11 AM:

Each morning Sarah Seidelmann will lead us in Shamanic practices-  we will be creating sacred space and exploring many ways to communicate and receive guidance from the sourced web of life.  Journeying is an ancient practice similar to lucid dreaming and is simple, universal and empowering. The energies we will visit with are compassionate benevolent and offer wonderful guidance for us.  It’s a great time for this intimate group to connect.

1 -4 PM:

Susan Honnell will lead the troops to discover the wonderful sport of surfing!  We will also have the opportunity to take the wonderful ideas and messages we got at the mythical level (in the morning) and bring them back into ordinary reality!

Included:
  • Accommodations in the rental house (as described) and surf board rental and coaching (by Susan) plus a light breakfast on the days described .
  • A one and ½ hour, pre-departure teleclass entitled “Shamanism 101” led by Sarah and Susan with discussion.   Date and time are to be arranged.  An mp3 recording will be available after the call, so don’t worry if you can’t make it.
Not included:
