The Retreat:

A Bali pilgrimage is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in a rich spiritual culture.

Their gentle way of being, temple ceremonies, including making of offerings, teaches a way of life, a practice of letting go, letting be, and discovering the heart essence which is all around us and within us.

Being intimately in the Balinese way of life opens our awareness to a greater world, to the garden of life in its beauty, magic, and inspiration.

In Bali gratitude, surrender, devotion,emptiness, sacred and much more is present each moment of each spirit full day.

Daily program:

Morning and evening meditation, along with meditative movement or hatha yoga is offered everyday.

Afternoons vary between visiting sacred sites, temple ceremonies, and visiting Bali’s most respected teachers.

Each day includes time to relax in the resort’s exquisite gardens of peace. We have exclusive use of this special sanctuary.

Some of the Temple ceremonies include:

Welcoming ceremony by village priestess.

Learn the meditative meaning of the customary Balinese flower prayer.  We learn the purpose behind their basket weaving and offering baskets that are included in all temple visits.

A visit to sacred waters that emerge naturally from the earth.  These waters are considered a blessing of a lifetime.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
