Kmec is a yoga retreat center and meditaion facility on the big island of Hawai’i. Protected by new walls of lava rock that surround the land from the 2018 kilauea volcano eruption and refreshed by the ocean’s soothing ha, meaning breath in hawaiian. KMEC is the perfect place for you, your ohana, or your group to escape, learn and reconnect.

SACRED LAND - Our 10-acre organic orchard has been blessed with a pure intention to serve all those who choose to come and experience it. Each of the over 30 different types of trees were planted with the intention to provide food and healing to our guests (more on food). The cabins on property have all been built by hand and designed to be in harmony with the trees and nature surrounding them. We enjoy using all of Mother Earth's sacred resources by harvesting the sun's power for our electricity and rain for our drinking water. Because we are fully integrated with state-of-the-art solar power and water purification systems, we have all the features of any "on grid" facility which includes free WiFi, normal flush toilets, instant hot water, and every room has full electricity. This ensures our guests are comfortable and never feel like they are "off grid" living (more on accommodations). Finally, we are just a small part of a much bigger experience on the Big Island, as Hawai’i has long been known for its one-of-a-kind features you cannot find anywhere else (more on activities).
Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center was brought into existence by the inspiration of His Holiness Param Sant Kirpal Singh JI MAHARAJ, and in honor of his mission of human unity. Our calling is to assist every soul who chooses to spend time with us in their transformation into oneness. we pray that his continued protection, love and grace will bless all those who come here.
The purpose of this Center, with its natural beauty near the ocean, is for the weary Soul to rest from its entanglements, be able to distinguish itself from the mind and enjoy inner peace.
