About This Event

"Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the (contact info blocked) exactly where you are meant to be right (contact info blocked) And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love." 


With this in mind, The Bettina’s Kitchen Retreat is based around 3 key principles:

NOURISHMENT: All of the food at the retreat is plant based, 100% organic, and locally sourced. We will not only be enjoying this food at meal times but I will also be teaching you how to prepare it through workshops. We will also cultivate a valuable relationship with what we eat by visiting the farm where our food is grown and getting right to the source by picking our own produce.

MINDFULNESS: By improving the health of our gut, which is our second brain, we nourish our mind. When we eat better, we feel better, it is all linked you see! In the amazing environment of Bali and our personal retreat space we will take the time to properly relax and rejuvenate our minds to supplement the great work we will be doing with our food. I will teach you some simple mindfulness exercises that can easily be implemented once you get home. 

THE ART OF SELF CARE: I firmly believe that before one is able to love others one must first love thyself. Step one in this self love practice is coming to join me on this retreat. From this initial gift to yourself I will guide you through your journey to the true art of self care so that you may truly love yourself and the people around you. 

BALI: Instead of using outside resources we source the best of Bali - Dewa, "the magic man", has knowledge and secrets passed down through generations (have you watched eat pray love?),  Raden, our Sumatran Sound Healer that will take you on an amazing journey of discovery and many many more suppliers, teachers and friends who will make your stay memorable and truly authentic.

For the first time ever Bettina’s Kitchen has created a one of kind Retreat that combines Plant Based Foods, Mindfulness, Workshops and tools to implement foods that create a good gut flora that essentially improves Mind and body health. We will also include the best of Bali in terms of an amazing venue, balines sound healing and old traditional balinese ways of improving overall balance. The days will be divided in six different sections of knowledge and experience.

Bettina will take you on a seven day journey of nourishment, mindfulness, and the art of self care in one of the the most beautiful destinations. The week will consist of eating Plant Based foods, learning how to cook them, where they come from and  how to improve gut health. By taking care of our gut health we improve our mind health and by improving our mind health we feel better.
