You have dreamed of Bali. Dreams do come true…
You are invited to join us for an immersive healing journey…
Explore Bali. Discover Yourself.
October 19-25, 2012
We believe there are certain radiant places in the world that invite us deep into ourselves, beckoning us to face our fears, awaken to our soul’s desires, and imagine a new potential.
Bali is such a place.
On this unique spiritual adventure, you will meet the real Bali, the Bali of light and transformation, as we guide you through a powerful process that will enable Bali to gently work her magic with you. Whether you seek healing, personal change, self-actualization, an exciting life-changing adventure, or all of the above, this transformational retreat will open new doorways for you – illumined doorways.
We approach this retreat in the spirit of true pilgrimage. We invite you to leave your old self behind and arrive ready to discover a new one. You will be immersed in the spiritual and cultural dimensions of Bali. Every aspect of this trip has been carefully designed to connect you with the warmth, depth, and luminosity of Bali and her people.
Stay at our friends, and Bali hosts, Ketut and Wayan’s beauitful Ketut’s Place—a vibrantly warm and welcoming traditional Balinese family-run bed & breakfast located in the heart of Ubud, Bali’s cultural center.
|Have your own session with one of Bali’s most respected “balians” — a traditional Balinese healer – Cokorde Rai at Negari village. (With Chantal below)|
|Meditate in the Gunung Kawi Sebatu Temple, renowned for its majesty and beauty.|
|Walk through a hidden-away waterfall, in a purification ceremonial rites waterfall rarely experienced by Westerners.
|Participate in a Balinese yoga session with well respected Ketut Bandiastra—learning about Balinese Hinduism and philosophy (Watch interview with Ketut below).
|Experience the important role that Balinese rituals and arts play in Balinese life.|
|Honor and celebrate with local Balinese as we prepare and walk in procession for the annual temple ceremony.|
|Take part in the celebration of Vishnu’s birthday, as we are blessed by the village/temple priest, clothed in traditional dress, and making offerings to the gods as we pray for ourselves, others and the world.|
|Experience the best of Balinese food and culture.|
This isn’t tourism.
What We Will Offer You:
We will serve as your guides in both your outer and inner journey. Our teaching sessions are inspired by the Balinese Hindu concept of Trimurti - the powers of creation, preservation, and destruction that cycle endlessly through the universe, making and remaking as they go. Symbolically represented by the deity triad Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer, these three energies actually co-exist within each of us. We may call upon them at any time to recreate ourselves and our lives. As Trimurti, these three forces inspire much of Balinese Hinduism, and we will draw upon this in our work together:
In the spirit of Shiva the destroyer, we will help you surface, face, and transmute your dark side, including your blocks, fear, and self-imposed limitations. We will help you transform rather than resist these shadows, enabling you to reclaim your full power and brilliance.
In the spirit of Vishnu the preserver, we will facilitate your healing and purification and revitalize your connection to the divine. We will journey together through dimensions of light, drawing on the radiance of Bali to open new doorways and bring you home to yourself.
In the spirit of Brahma the creator, we will help you envision new possibilities for yourself and your life, opening to messages from the divine about your sacred purpose and potential. We will help you recreate yourself in this image and guide you in how to integrate this new-found vision into your life upon your return home.
Is This Trip For You?
We can’t answer this for you. But we believe it is, if any or all of these apply:
- You’ve always wanted to visit Bali, but wanted more than a tourist experience.
- You long to connect with, and explore, the spiritual and energetic dimensions of this magical island.
- You feel the transformative possibilities of 2012, but seek guidance on how to realize these in your own life.
- You feel on the precipice of change, ready to manifest a new vision for yourself and your life.
- You are ready to let go of the past, healing old wounds, and releasing anything holding you back from living the life you richly deserve.
- You sense there are barriers you are ready to break through.
- You want to journey to new destinations, inner and outer.
- You feel called – by Bali, yourself, the divine, or all three.
Discover and experience a different rhythm of life.
