SRF Regional Retreat 2012

General Information

In late October 2012, Maui Mediation Circle hosted 150 people from across the Hawaiian Islands, mainland USA, Canada, and Asia for the first-ever monastic-led SRF Regional Retreat on these tropical shores. The combination of Master’s devotees and those new to SRF at Maui’s famous Grand Wailea Resort resulted in an unprecedented ground-breaking weekend of spiritual community. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive with strong encouragement for successive regional retreats – longer and deeper. Enjoy some retreatant comments, photos, our novel promotional video, and the event program.

Retreatant Comments

I felt so welcomed at the Grand Wailea via your packet of information. So many thoughtful touches from the beautiful bookmark to the health food store coupons (we used them!) to suggestions for walks, etc. Your thoroughness and attention to detail was wonderful and very much appreciated for us out-of-staters. We went through everything and talked about it several times.

The retreat felt a lot like Convocation – uplifting and inspiring but more intimate and cozy. – Sue K., Colorado


You did a magnificent job coordinating and putting on such a beautiful event! Everything about it seemed perfect to me, and especially considering what a small group you are, all your efforts seem even more impressive!

Thank you for choosing such an exceptionally lovely hotel to host us all in……I doubt I’d ever get to experience such a hotel without your invitation. You are so fortunate to live in such a special place as Maui, and I can’t thank you enough for inviting us all to come and share it with you. It was really very special to be there.

It’s hard to be back on the mainland again, but I’m looking forward to hopefully returning someday. In the meantime I have so many treasured moments and so much helpful inspiration gathered from the retreat, that I feel full to the brim with blessings!

Thank you MMC for the wonderful retreat! I am so happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of your very first retreat. Perhaps we will do it again before long! – Sumathi A., Texas
