Our retreat centre is a luxury resort spa, north of Ubud, Bali in a sacred valley in the high country. We are nestled in a natural tropical river valley, enveloped in lush greenery, organic gardens, gentle breeze & birdsong. This setting allows a rare opportunity to truly retreat from the hectic pace of life & immerse in a more natural flow. Here, supported by this healing environment, the lovely Balinese people, and taking part in healing practices each day, you will have the opportunity to enjoy making connections with like-minded new friends and reconnecting with yourself. We set the conditions and support you to come back home to yourself.
Each morning begins with a yoga & meditation class in the open air studio, in touch with the vibrant sounds of the jungle. After a delicious organic breakfast, with views of the beautiful Mt. Agung and surrounding mountains, we move in meditation to the wonderful flow of AiChi (water Qigong) in the infinity pool. Afternoons may be spent by the pool, participating in one of the Balinese ceremonies, visiting water temples, creating offerings or elixirs, relaxing or in meditation. The choice is yours, whether to simply relax & Be - perhaps lying on your canopy bed - or to chose the offerings that best suit you. Our schedule for the week also includes a Self Care class with Kara, RMT; a complimentary Janzu (water healing bodywork) session with Kara; an evening Restorative Yoga with Thai Massage and a"Yin & Tonic" (yin yoga with massage) class, and a group session in Aletheia Transformational Breathwork with Cedar. These practices, along with the peaceful, nourishing setting; the gracious, kind and ever-smiling Balinese people, create the conditions for you to revitalize, reawaken, renew & restore in this tropical paradise.
Delicious Balinese meals (food preferences & allergies respected) are served in a breezy open air restaurant with expansive views. Much of the food is grown on site in Bagus Jati's organic gardens. The rooms, also with views, are well-spaced over a secluded property, with a choice of a stand-alone villa or chalet. From the infinity pool, one can visit the river and waterfall below, or perched above, one can gaze at it all from the open-air hot tub, where, from a distance, you may see monkeys, swinging in the vines.
Our site hosts a state-of-the-art Spa, with luxurious treatments in various modalities of massage; scrubs, wraps, facials, pedicures, manicures and more. There are traditional offerings as well as Ayruvedic, Balinese & Javanese applications - all of them administered by the wonderfully skilled & graceful Balinese therapists.
As well as all of the wellness practices & activities that we include, an immersion into the Balinese culture is our other strong focus. We share the beauty, warmth & intricacies of their healing culture through excursions, blessings, ceremonies, water temple visits, elixirs & offerings. You will leave Bali feeling a greater sense of connection, both to yourself & to a warm, healing community.
This year's retreat will take place over "Nyepi", a Balinese annual day of silence & contemplation. A day of gratitude observed by the entire island!
