The Aloha Leadership Retreat will be a small intimate gathering to help you transform your leadership.

May 3, 4 and 5, 2019

Aloha means “the presence of breath” or “the breath of life.”

It comes from “Alo,” meaning presence, front and face, and “ha,” meaning breath.

Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect.

Its deep meaning starts by teaching ourselves to love our own beings first and afterwards to spread the love to others.

mkbh-hawaii-general-exterior-from-beach-wo-modelDuring the weekend of May 3 -5, 2019, we’ll convene at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii is often described as the place where Hawaii can be Hawaii.

Beautiful beaches. Striking sunsets. Snorkeling. Manta rays. Elegance. Art collections. Relaxation.


On Friday evening we’ll begin with a casual get-together at sunset in the beautiful Copper Bar Vista Deck.

Saturday’s and Sunday’s meetings will be in the Garden Room.

Hopefully, the sparkling turquoise waters of the bay will not be too distracting.

Aloha Leadership Retreat Schedule:

Friday, May 3, 2019

Arrive at your leisure at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii.

At 6:00 pm we will gather in the Copper Bar Vista Deck to enjoy sunset, each other’s company and dinner pupus.

Sunset is at 6:43 pm.


Saturday, May 4, 2019

Begin the day with walk on the beach if you wish.

After breakfast we begin our session to delve into the steps for creating and nourishing a healthy organization, an organization with aloha.

We’ll have plenty of time to share as a group our challenges and hopes of Montessori school leadership.

In the afternoon there will be time to enjoy the beach, get a massage, or other activities. 

At sunset we’ll enjoy a group dinner.

Sunday, May 4, 2019

After breakfast we’ll continue our discussions about leadership and wrap up our leadership session right after lunch.

For those of you spending Sunday night, you are invited to dinner at my home.


The Aloha Leadership Retreat will be a fun and amazing experience. 

This will be an intimate gathering where you will make new friendships and gain deeper appreciation of your courage and aloha as a Montessori school leader.

Because this will be a small event, attendance will be limited.

When you register, I’ll send out a questionnaire so we can target our sessions on exactly what you want and need. 

You’ll also receive an attendance certificate for twelve hours of professional development.
