Balanced for you to integrate body, mind and soul...
Physical - Moving the energy through exercise-river rafting, biking, hiking, yoga. Daily spa treatments to soothe and refresh.
Emotional - Get out of your comfort zone and grow! Connect with the local Balinese artisans, venture off the beaten trail, sample local cuisine, and notice the shift that comes with awakening to unfamiliar experiences. Overcome emotional limitations that barricade your full experience of life through individual and group coaching and connection. Every day brings new awareness and "ah-ha's".
Spiritual - Spend time connecting to spirit in this natural and unspoiled setting. The energy in Bali is magical. You will encounter unexpected spiritual messengers in human form who have been divinely placed in your path. You will have an opportunity to share a morning of volunteer work as a gesture of love and support for the local community.
Here is a sampling of our daily workshop topics:
- Stress Management
- Honoring your personal baggage
- Re-writing your story - who are you really?
- Following your intution
- Claiming your happiness
- Finding your passion in life
What to expect each day:
Each day, we will conduct a group workshop in the morning, and in the afternoon, we will deepen the message of the day with experiential work - active excursions like white water rafting, hiking, biking, or if you choose, more peaceful activities such as yoga, cooking classes, beach relaxation, or a healing session... and don't forget the many opportunities for shopping therapy! Remember, your tuition includes eight of these activities, as well as a daily massage or spa treatments.
We have also allowed two days of free time so that you can plan your own activities - travel to another part of the island, spend leisurely days shopping, enjoying spa treatments, go to the beach, or just lounge around and read a book - the possibilities are endless.
Our explorations into rural Bali are a delight; encounters with the local people tending rice fields, duck farmers herding flocks of ducklings, cooking beside the road, painting, doing bead work, wood carving and observing their daily spiritual rituals. You will immediately feel at home as you are welcomed into the Balinese culture of enduring peace and happiness.
Included in our itinerary is the opportunity to do community volunteer work at a local school for emotionally & mentally challenged children. We encourage our guests to bring donations to the school, animal shelter and village birthing clinic. Our most cherished intention in visiting Bali is to give back to the community which gives so much to us.
We offer a choice of single or double rooms. If you are travelling alone, and prefer doubling up, we are happy to select a roommate for you if possible. Please note that space is limited and your first choice of room types may not be available for those booking later.
