This space was designed that to be open and inviting to people of many spiritual traditions to come and practice. We walked the outdoor labyrinth, spent some time in the garden where a gray parrot holds court amid an incredible collection of plants, sacred and collectible items. You will find something for everyone along with a gracious and thoughtful staff. it's worth the trip to upcountry!

I had found that this place does wedding ceremonies on a donation basis and it would've been a perfect fit as myself and my fiance are eloping with only twenty of our close friends and family members on October 13th 2021. I am a social worker, my fiance lost his business due to Covid, and we are currently still home schooling our ASD son so a big wedding budget has never been in the cards for us, donation was the perfect route and we would have donated quite a bit since we would be saving a lot not booking an official venue. Due to Covid I made sure to get in contact with the venue early on and they directed me to talk with Eve. Eve and I spoke back in January about having roughly 18 people at the ceremony, my aunt would be officiating, and that we would carpool as to not take up a bunch of space in the parking lot. Eve agreed to all of this (my aunt, the number of cars, the date, even talked about donation amount) and the only thing she asked was for me to contact her once I got an official number of guests.

A few months go by and I was finally able to get an official number of guests. I email the number (20) to Eve on 5/4, heard nothing. Emailed again 5/11, heard nothing. Called and left a message for someone asking for Eve to get back to me on 5/14, and again nothing. Finally today (5/20) I called again and was able to speak with Eve. She now says this won't work as there would be too many guests, she doesn't allow anyone but herself to officiate, she wouldn't trust my family to make the donation, and there would not be enough room in the parking lot for "all those cars" (I hadn't even told her how many cars). Eve said because of all these factors she has been hesitant to get back to me, so she essentially just ghosted me because she didn't want to tell me she had changed her mind since we last spoke (very unprofessional and stressful for someone trying to plan a wedding). I said it would have been nice to have heard back when I emailed her almost a month ago and even nicer if she was honest from the beginning instead of saying this would be fine back in January. I expressed this puts stress on having to find a new place in such short notice. She gave me attitude and said "you still have five months, it's not that last minute", but who knows if she actually would have ever gotten back to me had I not continued to call and email. Not to mention, I already sent out my save the dates with the location on them and have booked lodging accommodations based on the location of the gardens. So now I have four months to find a new venue and figure out lodging changes. This might be a nice place to visit briefly but I DO NOT recommend booking any event here

So sad to see this review....as I barely remember the interaction....and it is never my intention to be inconsiderate, or uncommunicative. I was going through cancer, chemo and a double mastectomy in the middle of a pandemic. My recollection was that our first conversation was about an "elopement"....("to run away secretly with the intention of getting married …") as you stated above....which means to me, just the couple, which I am happy to do for free for people who are staying on the property. But, when the call came in a few months later, it was 20 people in the middle of a pandemic (and cancer recovery) and that was not possible. I apologize for being uncommunicative, or unclear, or "inconsiderate"....—— it was just one of those years. I hope you are now happily married and employed and that you are joyfully moving forward. The reality is that we are NOT an event venue, if we were, we would be charging huge fees like all the other event venues and advertising the place as such...so you are correct, no one should be trying to book events here. BUT it is a lovely place to visit, free or by donation, and we welcome you all to do so.

This is a magical place to get away and just bring peace to your mind, body and spirit. This sacred garden really holds a special place in my heart and it will in yours too. If you are under lots of stress go there and just meditate for few moments. Chat with one of the two beautiful parrots, meet the friendly staff or just hide away and read a book. This is a healing place that will surely leave you feeling better than when you walked. Just ask the staff for mosquito spray.

We were so delighted that we stopped here..after losing a special relative just a few days ago, this was so welcoming and peaceful and stopping for just 30 minutes brought about a much needed respite and a wonderful time for reflection. The "attendee' was kind and made us feel so at home. There are several different ways to "honor" a loved one or to leave a memory. This is a non profit and needs your support.

Because we stayed at the log cabin retreat next door, we visited the Sacred Garden several times with different combinations of family members. Everyone loved it! Beautiful, serene, peaceful, and free.

A local recommended the sacred garden to me, and I'm so happy that he did. It was an amazing place. A cool greenhouse with a lot of different plants, two labyrinths, a meditation room, and some chickens wandering the premise. I really liked the things in the shop and they offer free coffee/hot chocolate. Staff was very friendly. A very peaceful place that allows for some self reflection.

My mother passed away several years ago. Our family has been going to a small place where we go to on Maui to vacation and pray. It brings us comfort and happiness for all the family to love. It’s a joy of course! Just a few minutes takes our aches and pains away. Come for your time, as much as you need. Joy to all. Peace to you, friend.

Maui resident, since 11.11.2005: If you love Nature, and the stillness, beauty and process of living in peace inside as well as out, then come visit my favorite place. I come here to walk the labyrinth, which is so helpful. The walk in gives me a chance to feel into what is here, filling my mind, wobbling my walk, bothering my focus, and I stay in the center, finding my own, tuning into my heart, and my walk out is lit up with insights, ease, Grace and clarity. The shop and greenhouse full of gifts are the best, at once charming, then so creative, totally enchanting, and nice things you can treat yourself to. There are birds to connect with in big cages, and a warm staff and ...amazing Eve Hogan. It is so very important to steep in this Sacred Garden and all it offers, lasting gifts, in every magic moment.

We were positively surprised by finding this little gem in upcountry Maui, from the moment you walk in you can feel the peace of this magical place. An excellent spot to relax, meditate and for sure walk a couple of labyrinths, the biggest one if in the center at the back of the garden, totally worth the drive about 15-20 minutes from the airport.

You can tell the place is well taken care of. The plants, the turtle, the decorations. Even one of the wind chimes had the most beautiful sound I've ever heard. A refreshing stop on the busy island.
