Retreats and Programs
Polestar has many ways of coming to visit. You can design your own retreat / vacation, participate in one of our programs, or simply join in the daily life of the community. We have ongoing meditation, yoga, kirtans, service projects, social events and recreational outings and you can participate in some or all depending on your interest. Many visitors find a deeply rejuvenating vacation through a balance of sight seeing and spiritual practice; service and relaxation.
We are situated on 20 beautiful acres about a 30 minute drive south of Hilo (on the Big Island). Accommodations include everything from tent camping, to single and double occupancy rooms, to private apartments. You will have full access to the spacious common room and kitchen, yoga temple, spiritual library, beautiful grounds, orchard and large garden. Our daily diet includes the many fresh vegetables and fruits grown organically here at Polestar Gardens.

There are many wonderful adventures, parks and beaches to explore on the Big Island: water falls, steam vents, lava hikes, black sand beaches, and more. Volcano National Park, the most visited park in all the islands, is less than an hour away. Nearby Pahoa Town has several excellent restaurants, shopping, library and free public swimming pool. Hilo is half an hour's drive and the second most populous city in Hawaii. It has many museums, parks, beaches and a lovely downtown with shops and a farmers market. And there are lots of other amazing adventures here on the Big Island.
