This tropical jungle earth temple is surrounded by waterfalls and situated in a very sacred part of the island that was known as the home of the owl and a place that the Hawai’ian royalty received training. We are a living eco-temple and the perfect place to reconnect with nature and the mana (healing energy) that the islands are known for. If you are needing the amenities and creature comforts of modern hotels, this is not the place for you. If you are adventurous and are willing to unplug and tune into nature than this nature temple will be paradise. You will wake up to beautiful sunrises and the sounds of nature. The 2.5 acre sanctuary is a living food forest with coconut, papaya, banana, avocado, starfruit, orange, lemon and lime trees, a garden full of organic greens and passion fruit. We also have giant bamboo, exotic tropical flowers and gardens. The temple has gorgeous Indonesian art, statues and fountains throughout. We are somewhat rustic and do not have air conditioning. We have shared bathroom facilities and a clean outdoor marble shower. In general we have good cell service especially for Verizon. We are on Satellite Internet which is not the strongest service. We recommend that you plan on unplugging and taking a retreat from the internet during your time here!

Special Dietary Needs
Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs in advance.
Maui is a tropical island in the Hawaiian chain with a fairly mild year-round climate tempered by the Pacific Ocean. We are located just above sea level the average afternoon winter temperature is around 75°F during the coldest months of December and January. August and September are the hottest summer months with temperatures in the low 90s. Due to the prevailing trade winds, most rainfall hits the north- or northeast-facing shores and it is usual for us to have showers mostly at night and in the morning. As with most volcanic tropical islands, however, many different micro climates mean packing for a variety of conditions: swim suits and light hot-weather clothing for the beaches, a lightweight windbreaker for the occasional shower at higher elevations, and more serious protection during inclement conditions when hiking Haleakala. Winter and Spring (mid-December through mid-April) is high season for Maui.
What to Bring
Most importantly bring your open heart and your open mind! As well, you are welcome to bring something to place on the altar to hold your intention and charge up! Wear comfortable yoga clothes, bring a yoga mat (there are usually plenty, yet it’s usually best to use your own), sunglasses, sandals, beach wear, walking shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and dirty if you want to venture over rivers and to waterfalls (inexpensive boat shoes are ideal), t-shirts, light, long sleeves / trousers for the evening, hat, sunscreen, earplugs and eye mask (for light sleepers), earth-friendly toiletries (we provide Dr. Bronners soap in the shower and bathroom), personal medication, reading material, journal/notebook and pens, coloring pencils, art material (optional), camera. Allow yourself this time to truly unplug and reset by taking a break from wifi and electronics. We are semi off the grid and our resources are precious. Help us to conserve them by using your towels and sheets for the duration of your stay. We are on water catchment and use rainwater for our household needs. We are also on satellite internet. Verizon cell service is excellent here. Help preserve this tropical rainforest. To avoid using sunscreen lotion and mosquito repellent, it is highly recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts or use a shawl/sarong, long skirts or pants. You may find some mosquitoes out around dusk and most of our guests find the Maui mosquito bites are rather mild and disappear within an hour with no need for creams and repellents.

Regan S. (Australia)
I had the most amazing time. Heather and Donny were so welcoming and are wonderful hosts. The structure of the program was quite good because it felt like there was flexibility and freedom to sight see and wind down. The welcoming ceremony was divine. The aerial yoga was so much fun but the cocoon time was so relaxing. I also loved the cabins. They were so gorgeous and it was heavenly to see that one of those was my home away from home after 3 flights!
Susanne O (Germany)
It was beautiful, mystical, warm-hearted, challenging at times, and all in all a great experience that I can highly recommend. Definitely good value! The food, as well as yoga and sound healing, the offered extra sessions, and the beautiful cabins were terrific. I thought that the sweetness of Donny, and the power of Heather were very inspiring.
Victoria R (England)
I thought the retreat really was so beneficial and nurturing towards being able to focus on finding gratitude, space, and love within yourself and for the people in your life. Heather and Donny have an incredible place and the ways that they share what they have to give really shone throughout my stay, from sound healing to sharing ideas, teaching what they know and being full of support. The structure of the days were perfect in that the yoga practice and sound healing – and all the delicious meals – were in the morning, then you could spend time reflecting in the garden or go for a walk in the afternoon. Heather is magnificently kind and so willing to share what she knows, it was great to learn a different kind of style of yoga and the sound healings were always interesting and each had their own individual focus. Aerial Yoga Play is AMAZING. The Retreat really is conducive to spending some time with yourself, every day I discovered something new about the garden that I hadn’t noticed before. The cats, delicious food, and even the sauna were all surprise added bonuses that really made my stay special!
Dani elle S (Australia)
“Amazing! A life-changing experience!!! I really enjoyed learning Aerial Yoga Play. The Sound Healing journeys were amazing. I got to meet my spirit guide. I got to do a lot of internal work and checking in with myself. I had some valuable piano lessons from Donny too. The itinerary was perfect and it was definitely great value for the money and the life lessons I received were invaluable!”
Melissa Sutor (www.dragonflycenter.org)
Pure magic!!! This is the experience that Heather and Donny create during their sound healing ceremonies. Whether they are hosting events at the Black Swan Temple, Lumeria Retreat Center, or any other venue, they always offer a safe and sacred space to connect deeply with mind, body, heart, and soul. I feel uplifted and soothed at the same time by the power of sounds they produce and the love they share. They shine their light brightly to inspire true healing, wellness, and joy in individuals and the world. I am honored to be blessed by their community and friendship.
Kerri Leblang, Singer Song Writer, Author (California, September 2016)
Heather and Donny create such a powerful sacred space for healing and transformation to take place. I’m always brought to deeper places within myself. I always travel higher and stretch wider than I can even imagine. They are extraordinary together. The work they do is out of this world.
Federica T., Italy (September 2016)
I have been recently on a Mystical Alchemy retreat for the 8 days-7 nights program. I have been soaking in with so many new things: aerial yoga, sound healing, nutritious and delicious food that infused so much energy in me! It’s very original and it exposes to experiences that rarely one could get in one retreat. Heather and Donny are incredibly welcoming, and they know where to bring you in the island to take your breath away. Thanks to them I visited the most incredible places, and got a “locals” perspective on the island. I realized I brought home so much for this experience! I found a lot of value in being exposed to things I have never really done in the past, being in an environment that promotes being technology free the most that you can. I also liked to learn from Heather about nutrition: I brought all those suggestions home and I already changed some of my habits. My body has been energized and infused with prana by yoga, sound healing and the amazing food. My mind has been nurtured by some many interesting point of views on nutrition and life. My heart has been hugged by the island and filled in with beauty during the excursions. Thank you Mystical Alchemy!
Rod and Isabella Price, Walnut Creek, CA (August 2016)
Heather and Donny’s retreat space is a hidden treasure, an eco-oasis of peace and rejuvenation! They welcomed us graciously into their goddess sanctuary where they blessed us with a beautiful and powerful sound healing meditation that we received on a deep cellular and soul level. Heather also prepared a delicious organic meal for us and offered us fresh fruits from the garden. Mahalo, Heather and Donny, for sharing your divine gifts with us and for your dedication to Spirit!
Shannon K (Australia – July 2016)
“It was a really enjoyable experience, located in an amazing part of Maui with a real natural and peaceful feel to it! Heather, Donny and their staff were absolutely awesome, making me feel so welcome from the minute I arrived which created such a comforting, relaxed and loving environment. The Sound Healing was something special for me and it’s something that I’d like to continue in the future! I loved the live music and yoga! Really amazing!! I also enjoyed listening to Donny’s thoughts, beliefs and wisdom on life and I have definitely taken it home with me.”
Priestess Sarah Brooks Kinnally (Aug 2016)
I would like to share my gratitude for Heather Salmon and her Black Swan Mystery School. I had been praying for a mentor, someone to teach me how to use the gift of healing and to access the things I know but had forgotten. Heather Salmon guided me to connect with a deep inner wisdom through a variety of practices. I began to awaken to my potential. To tune into my inner voice and clearly express my outer voice. I learned many tools for many different purposes. These include tools for grounding, protection, neutrality, intention setting, releasing, energy work and peaceful communication. Exercising these practices empowered me by refining my energy. The practical application of these tools is how I learned to harness the Mystery. I have since transformed into the woman I’ve wanted be, the woman I AM.
Rev. Debbie Dehm (Aug 2016)
I have been attending the beautiful sound healing meditation for the full moon and new moon on a monthly basis. As a channel for spirit I know how important it is to the spirit realm to hold a regular schedule to meet with spirit, to honor our ancestors and to acknowledge the cycles of time. I truly appreciate Heather and Donny’s commitment to host these ceremonies every month and allow me and others to participate. The music is uplifting to our vibration and not only benefits those who attend but the world through the prayers and songs they offer. Mahalo Donny and Heather
Steven Line, Maui (July 2016)
An amazing New Moon ceremonial journey opening to deeper levels of personal healing and awareness. This was awesome, thanks Heather and Don!
Maree B, Australia (June 2016)
Excellent I would rate it a 10/10 this exceeded any expectations I had. This was the most extraordinary experience, Heather and Donny are the most gracious and welcoming couple and the sound healing is exceptional. Being close to nature in an eco environment is also very healing. I spent loved spending 8 nights and 9 days inmy Balinese Hut, listening to the bamboo in the wind at night and the rain at night so peaceful. The two hour yoga, aerial yoga and sound healing each day was to powerful and healing. The aerial yoga was fun and helped me with upper body strength and overcoming my inversion aversion. Heather cooked fabulous vegan meals for me with organic vegetables, I had fresh coconut water from their coconut tress.. I saw the sun set at Haleakalā National Park which was magical and visited IAO Valley when it was raining and just so peaceful and went to Hana and saw so many beautiful waterfalls and lovely coastal scenery. So many lovely places to see that I would not have gone to as a tourist. The new moon ceremony that Heather and Donny created at Lumeria was exceptional. I could go on and on. The main point is this is a fabulous retreat if you are looking to reset, heal or just relax as a single person, couple or friends this could be perfect for you.
Karlita W, Canada (May 2016)
Heather and Donny are amazing humans in their community and having them as tour guides and hosts raised our vibration to another level that has shown me another path to life I believe I’d like to walk… So too as we heal ourselves do we heal the world. Eternally grateful for this peace of heaven. I loved the intimate feel of the grounds but that we went out every day to see sights after our grounding morning. The Sound Healing was amazing…. a real treat… another level for sure. Heather’s cooking was also galactially nutritious and delicious! The nightly saunas and shower before bed allowed us down time to read books and seriously detox our body, mind and spirits from the day. Personally my experience was too much to be able to put into mere words but to say i am a changed person after attending the Maui Mystical Alchemy experience is an understatement…. next level of my soul for sure. When you feel the vibration you just gottta surf sometimes…. AMAZING!!!
Jeremy M., California (May 2016)
Everything about my experience was
Janalyn R., Saskatoon, Canada (May 2016)
Heather and Donny provided such a safe space for me to let go of what I was wanting to let go of. On our first night they asked us about our intentions and I feel like they kept that in mind the whole time we were there. I really enjoyed how the days were laid out. We had lots of yoga and sound healing, lots of adventures but also a lot of space to have personal time. The sound healing really took me to a whole other level. Every time I would go to another world … either I would fall asleep because it was so relaxing but the days I could stay awake I benefited a lot from. I especially noticed a big difference in my body after the organ healing. I also loved that we got a very local experience of the Island, that in itself had HUGE value for me as I wanted to really feel what Maui was all about. Heather spent so much time with us as well and showed us things, events, shops that we would have never experienced in a resort vibe. I loved every aspect of this retreat and will definitely be back SOON!!! The lessons and the messages from having a clear mind that came through were life changing!! My new found happiness, freedom, self confidence and self love are invaluable! My vision for beauty and my passion for life has been ignited once again. Thank you to the beautiful women along this journey and especially our Mother Earth for showing me the purpose and beauty of life once again.
Blair R., Maui, Hawaii (April 2016)
I needed to tell you Thank You again and share a bit about my personal experience at the Kundalini Yoga Healing Circle. It’s funny, looking back at it, all the things which aligned for me to attend this most auspicious divine occasion. I ended up, quite by “accident” across from a partner I hadn’t known long, but was already rooting and growing deep seeded feelings in me. Over the course of a couple hours, I found my self moving my spine, connecting with eye contact, and honestly, working up quite a sweat across from some one who was right there with me doing the same. I’m not sure when it happened, but you helped create an environment that allowed me to open my heart in a way I haven’t done in years, if ever. This workshop has literally changed my life and I can’t tell you in words what it feels like to be in love like this. Attendees BEWARE: this stuff is For Real! Through doable techniques, and especially ending on the humming vibrations and lavender sensations of the sound healing, we were transported to another dimension where loving was so obvious, easy, free flowing, and abundant. I beg to bring us back to the next one. It couldn’t be more worth it! I humbly thank you. You helped me reach the deepest loving me.
Virginia G., Toronto, Canada (April 2016)
At Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat you will be immersed in a cocoon of caring. Heather and Donny provide a nurturing space for their guests to heal and to rejoice in an exploration of possibilities. In the mornings, I was treated to a beautiful musical performance of keyboard, voice, and crystal bowls while being guided through gentle yoga, aerial yoga
Erika N, Japan (April 2106)
“It was undoubtedly a good way to rejuvenate and reset. Full of nature and heartwarming personalities of Heather and Donny made the retreat an excellent venue for me. I’m very glad I did this as I believe I accomplished so much in just 3 days. I loved the sound healing sessions. Heather’s customized guided sessions with Donny’s live music were spectacular. Don’t think this perfect combination is readily available elsewhere. I highly recommend for busy people. I think I felt an energy shift.”
Marsh Engle ~ OneMillionCalled.com (March 2016)
I believe Sacred Sound to be at the foundation of creating higher success. And the potent qualities of sacred sound is especially powerful when led by two healing artists like Heather and Donny. The transformative environment they create allows us to transcend the boundaries of limited thoughts and move
Candy C, (Bronx, NY) Feb 2016
“The Sound Healing journeys were the most magical and spiritual experiences of my life. It was the most amazing experience ever! Each day I left the studio in such a state of mind that I had to take a nap! I will recommend anyone who wants to reconnect with themselves to try it. I’m back already, but I’m homesick … I miss Maui! Thanks so very much for having this type of experience at my fingertips!”
Laura H, (Canada) Jan 2016
“I loved how personal the experience was and the peacefulness of the accommodations. The itinerary was flexible enough to consider what I was in the mood for that day and they had excellent suggestions on what they thought I would like. I saw a glimpse into a very different perspective from Heather which will always stay with me. I also learned a lot about yoga, sound healing, cooking, healing practices and I especially loved the aerial yoga and swimming in the pool at the top of the waterfall.”
Eileen Nims (Hawaii) Jan 2016
“Heather and Donny are the Yin and Yang of the retreat. Together they create a whole experience and environment in which reconnecting with the divine can take place. The sound healing journeys open pathways to our Higher Selves and our re-alignment of our multi-faceted beings. With yoga as a precursor and amazing food
Philippe & Yumi (Australia) Dec 2015
“We were looking for a retreat that offered yoga and spirituality. The Maui Mystical Alchemy Retreat offered both and a whole lot more. Each day Heather prepared a healthy breakfast and a variety of delicious lunches. The yoga and sound healing sessions allowed us to be sensitive to our bodies and surrounding environment, and gave us introspective time to look within and consciously work on developing our awareness of chakras and how energy flows through the body with the aid of music. In the afternoon’s we were taken on an excursion to a different part of the island each day. One thing we enjoyed was the personal attention given by Heather and Donny and their desire to provide an amazing experience for us. We loved every aspect the retreat provided, and we were truly inspired to see the way Heather and Donny live, and intend to incorporate their type of lifestyle into our own. We had a magical time at their place and are sincerely grateful for everything we experienced. We would definitely recommend this 8-day retreat to anyone seeking to get in touch with nature, the food they eat, and themselves while in the company of two wonderful hosts. Mahalo and thank you!”
Rhiannon (Australia) Dec 2015
“The Black Swan Temple was truly an amazing experience. Heather and Donny have really made this into a special and inviting place. After working and traveling through multiple countries and cities the last 7 months, it was the right time go on a jungle escape and disconnect whilst enjoying everything that Maui has to offer. Heather and Donny’s Sound Healing classes, along with the yoga and everyday excursions (snorkeling, waterfalls
Lucas Love (California) July 2015
Having done one of these healing retreats with Heather and Donny, I’d highly recommend it! Beautiful space. The work they do is amazing.
David & Sofia Chang (Washington DC) May 2015
“We spent our honeymoon at the Black Swan Temple and had an amazing time. Our accommodations were beautifully rustic, spiritually grounding and comfortably rainy – a great mix of the best of what the northern side of Maui can offer. We were surprised to find ourselves appreciating our early morning wake up calls from nearby roosters and it was great to stay on the fresh (and wet) side as evenings with the rain started to feel a bit romantic mid-way through our honeymoon stay! In fact, the dry sunny side felt boring and one-dimensional and we enjoyed being so close to Hana and Paia. In Chinese Culture, Grasshoppers and crickets are a good luck sign, and so it was nice to see them as well. Anything that could potentially be on the downside–ended up being really refreshing and a new adventure! Our favorite experience was the New Moon Ceremony, along with guided meditation and astrological sharing, stunning multi-media visuals, and a blissful Cacao ceremony.”
John Laughinghawk, Atlanta, Georgia (Sept 2015)
My first nights and days on Maui were deliciously cocooned here. Donny and Heather have created a beautiful, comfortable haven upon
Joy Taylor, Mt. Shasta, CA (March 2015)
I love your place and really enjoyed my time with Heather and Donny! Very refreshing, quiet and transformative! I highly recommend your center. PEACE awaits.
