Bali Retreat ~ Healing and Renewal 2016

Bali Retreat ~ Healing & Renewal         

March 7-15 2016

Wait list only ~ or plan ahead for next years retreat!

with Janice Gates

Bali is one of the most magical, culturally rich and nourishing places on the planet. I hope you can join me for this very special retreat, which I created specifically to coincide with the Balinese new year – a deeply spiritual time of healing, cleansing and renewal.  Colorful rituals and festivals are followed by a day of silence and self-reflection on Nyepi – the one time of the year that the entire island of Bali retreats into silence and stillness and is enveloped in an environment of complete tranquility and peace. Space is limited to 16 people for this unique and exclusive retreat.

Our home during the retreat is a luxurious boutique resort just outside of Ubud, the cultural center of Bali. Our sacred space is surrounded by butterflies, dragonflies and the sounds of the river with traditional architecture and an infinity pool with sweeping views of the river and valley. We are close to the Balinese village life and yet the centre of Ubud is only ten minutes drive away.

Each morning we will welcome the day with meditation on the deck over looking the valley, followed by a long nourishing yoga practice. Brunch will be served shortly after and there will be free time to to luxuriate in the infinity pool, receive a healing massage, explore local villages, shuttle into Ubud, visit a temple, the Monkey Forest, the markets and more. Most days we will meet back in the yoga space for a late afternoon yoga / pranayama / meditation practice, followed by dinner. Evenings will be be varied and include participating in Balinese rituals, a ceremony with a Balinese healer, a special Balinese dance performance for our group, and simply being.
