my experience with Hawaii Wellness Institute has been life changing. Years ago, in my early thirtys, I was constantly plagued with bad relationships poor self esteam and uncomfortable situations. I have learned to be the captain of my own ship. I am no longer a victim and understand clearly how to run my life. Now I pass those gifts onto my children who are growing into strong, responsible well adjusted adults.

I worked with Sunny a few years ago while engaged in a series of Living Consciously workshops. She was a supporter and presenter. I have heard her speak since then and am excited about the work she is doing. I believe it to be much needed and "right on." I sincerely believe that the facilitation of personal health as physical-psycho-emotional-spiritual beings, engaged in constant pursuit of wellness, wholeness, holiness, is the "way of the future." "way of the future," rather than simply "treating the patient".

...not with the organization itself, but in my professional and personal relationship with Sunny Massad and her work.

I had a wonderful time working with Dr. Sunny Massad at the Hawaii Wellness Institute. I felt VERY empowered after reading her book and learning from her first hand. I would recommend all women to join the Hawaii Wellness Institute and empower their lives TODAY!

Being notified of the powerful workshops that are often available in Hawaii by Hawaii Wellness Institute has been invaluable in constantly up grading my own thoughts and outreach for my own Non Profit All Our Children Together. Hawaii Wellness Institute is a wonderful resource for us here in Hawaii and everyone I know is very greatful for the dedication and constant work of the folks at the core of this dedicated group of women,,, without their commitment Hawaii would be missing a big and very important resource.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a very regular way about least once a month all year when I am here in Hawaii.

I am so amazed and thankful for the Retreats that I have been able to participate in. It opened many learning experiences for me that I would not have had the opportunity to find out on my own. I cherish the experiences I had with Hawaii Wellness Institute, and use what I have learned all the time! The tight organization using donor funds in a most efficient way is very refreshing also in this day and age. Hawaii Wellness Institute is so important and I am thankful that I discovered that/them!
