Coming Back Home
Virtual Wellness Retreat
Kuleana is a Hawaiian term for responsibility. In the healing world I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves, and ultimately it is our responsibility to do so. I use this term paired with my healing practice to illuminate the importance of taking charge of one's own health and healing process.
With the external world providing fewer and fewer outlets for our attention, ultimately less distractions, we are forced to go within. The importance of this inward shift is the exact reason I have created this retreat. I want to provide the tools and techniques for others to create healthy relationships with themselves, to find more love for themselves and to reconnect with parts that they may have drifted from along the way.
I have brought together healers that have facilitated my most profound healing experiences and allowed me to step into a more authentic, empowered state of being -- a process I hope to share with you. During this weekend we will expand our healing horizons through yoga, breath work, meditation, shamanic healing, ecstatic dancing, myofascial + neuromuscular self massage techniques, quantum energy healing and talks on nutrition + cleansing and the embodiment of empowered states of being.
To make this retreat a transformative and sustainable experience I will also provide information and opportunities for creating space in your daily lives to continue this work.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Surf Without Borders, a nonprofit organization that provides surf therapy to impoverished coastal communities.
Move towards being in alignment with being your best self. Join me and the most inspirational healers I know for this healing retreat!

She has a unique approach in guiding you and your family to view pathogens, toxins and sensitivities in a whole new way.

Her process of assisting you to alleviate chronic inflammation associated with allergies and sensitivities will allow you to breathe easier, eat desired foods and stop that pesky itchiness! While assisting people in re-mediating their allergies, Ashley noticed a subtle but deeply mis-understood population of people called Highly Sensitive People or HSPs. Many of these HSPs, no matter the age, can and do suffer from hyper-sensitivities of numerous forms. These types of hyper-sensitivities can manifest as auto-immune conditions, allergies, chronic anxiety, social isolation and many feelings of “too much, too sensitive, not good enough”, which can create low self esteem and misery. The AshleyLeeHealing™ program is designed to assist the HSP in remedying their hyper-sensitivities, bringing them in balance with their true innate sensitive selves.

Manjit was born from Indian parents of Sikh Punjabi descent, raised in England and now lives in New York.
Her parents and culture have had the biggest influence on her life especially her mother who taught music and Sikh studies at the local temple . Her parents taught her traditional hymns and mantras.
She grew up performing kirtan -singing Indian hymns and mantras in the Sikh temple with her family and learned about the importance of healing via music early on. She believes that what we choose to ingest and digest mentally and physically affects the way we think. As a young girl her grandmother read her palms and influenced her to discover her gift of having the ability to do the same and help people to address their past through mantras and meditation. Manjit uses this sacred gift to help navigate in tailoring personal meditations that are recorded for her private clients.
Manjit spent most of her adult life working in music and fashion but has always continued to record and write guided meditations and hymns
