Our Story

Wellbeing is not a destination, but a journey with knowledge at its core.

Our Founders

Sensei was founded by Larry Ellison, technology pioneer and co-founder of Oracle, and Dr. David Agus, a world-leading physician and scientist, The New York Times best-selling author and CBS News contributor. The two leading innovators were brought together by the loss of a close friend and motivated by a shared purpose: to help people live longer, healthier lives.

Their long-standing commitment to leverage science, technology, and multidisciplinary research with personalized medicine to build a healthier world is exemplified at their esteemed University of Southern California’s Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine, where Dr. Agus is founding director and CEO.

Sensei applies data-driven health knowledge and utilizes technology in its programs and services to create a premier wellbeing retreat nested within an expansive tropical setting to promote preventative care and healthy lifestyle practices.

Whether it is through science, research, technology, education, sustainable agriculture, or travel, a magnetic bond has been forged between these two accomplished visionaries who seek to guide humanity toward a greater state of wellbeing.

Wellbeing Guided by Knowledge 

The Sensei Way is developed by scientists and physicians across the globe, marshaled by Dr. David Agus and supported by our trained team of Sensei Guides and practitioners who hold degrees in their respective fields.

It is the depth of the team’s engagement, reliance on scientific findings, personalized concierge service, and heartfelt intention to support you that differentiates Sensei from other wellbeing retreats.

Our Retreats

On the exclusive island of Lānaʻi, our wellbeing retreat – Sensei Lānaʻi, A Four Seasons Resort – exudes luxury, privacy and delight in a tropical environment. Offering personalized experiences and innovative dining guided by our nutritional philosophy, Sensei’s first retreat brings to life the vision of two people dedicated to a global movement for sustainable living, powered by science, data and technology.
