Explore veganism as a spiritual practice with yoga, meditation, cooking, dancing, hiking, healing rituals, and touring sacred sites, on the gorgeous Hawaii Island. Join us to release stress, restore balance, and align your body, mind, and spirit. Hawaiian sunsets, volcanic views, and clear waters await you! This retreat is hosted by Vegan Dream Retreats, a collaboration between Vegan Aloha, Ellora Wellness, Living With Harmony, and In Defense of Animals.

 

Join us September 10 - 13 of 2020 for our Vegan Spirituality Forum & Retreat at Unity Village. Enjoy three days of inspiration, learning, renewal and collaboration as we co-create a world that works for all beings on the planet. Experience the sacredness of the Unity Village grounds, home of the Unity movement where co-founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore pioneered and advocated for ethical vegetarianism in the early 1900’s. Participate in the awakening of consciousness in the heart of our nation. This retreat is co-hosted by The Spiritual Forum and In Defense of Animals.
