An Ethnobotanical Journey to Hawaii :
Traditional Healing & Plant Medicine on the Big Island

January 13-22 2018
Lokahi Garden Sanctuary
Big Island Hawaii

Here’s what the previous Hawaiian adventurers have to say: 

“What a lucky gal I am to have my inner and outer self feel the circle of the inner and outer self. Healing each and every day when traveling with Jane, as her excitement for each moment radiates through the ones she with whom she surrounds herself.”
Early R

“Being a complete novice when the Hawaiian Herbal Adventure trip was first mentioned, I had some reservations about participating in a herbal retreat. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Besides the beautiful island and all it has to offer, I met people who cared about the land and its use and what it has to offer in a healing way. It’s a trip to learn about herbs and their uses, breathtaking views and most of all meeting interesting people. I definitely grew in knowledge, perspective and introspection. ”
Elizabeth B

“I loved meeting all the different Hawaiian people that shared their culture with us and only wish we had more time with them. Also, the flower essence that we made with the Spider Lily was life-changing for me.”
Morgaine W

“This was my second adventure traveling with Jane. My joy in these adventures is enhanced by all the beautiful souls that meld together to bring the learning and experiencing to a heavenly level. The culture, the environment, our teachers, the sharing, the acceptance of each other made so many incredible memories. Thank you Jane, Natalie and Richard!”

In Jan 2017 we traveled to a magical place.  We learned, we laughed, we loved each other, we shared, we grew in interpersonal ways, we discovered, we hiked, we swam, we pampered each other, we ate, we danced, we created, we cried, we cooked, we meditated, we did yoga, we saw whales, we participated in cultural experiences, we celebrated and SO MUCH MORE!

So, join us in 2018 and expand your mind and uplift your spirit as you heed the call of an unforgettable experience on the Big Island of Hawaii! Meet with local herbalists and traditional healers, pilgrimage to sacred sites, and participate in the traditional culture while enjoying the tranquility and beauty of Hawaii.

Dr. Richard Liebmann and his wife Natalie Young, stewards of Lokahi Garden Sanctuary, and herbalist Jane Bothwell and explore the island’s diverse climate zones and wide range of habitats that provide an ideal setting to explore the remarkable diversity of nature, our relationship to the healing world of plants, and our innate place in the great web of life.
