You will be living in original Javenese teak buildings ranging from small rice barns to large antique joglos. All of the buildings are genuine antiques and are made of beautiful old teak.

The energy of the land is really quite palpable even to the uninitiated.
When was the last time you unleashed your creativity? Art is a powerful way to connect with your inner child. There is a whole universe inside of each one of you waiting to be expressed. Bali's very own Maneesh de Moor, will be leading you through an evening of heart-opening kirtan. Each of you has a piece of the divine feminine within you and this should be expressed.
Therefore, you will be transforming into mystical deities and having fun with the photographer to capture the essence of this inner power. You will immerse yourself in the rich Balinese culture by experiencing a Balinese dance performance and then spending an afternoon with renowned dance teacher and choreographer, Katut, to learn this powerful dance. You will experience flower mandalas, painting, and more. Get ready to laugh, sing your heart out, and be inspired!
Every day will begin with a yoga practice, some breathing exercises, and a guided meditation. In your busy life, it's easy to get overwhelmed with the infinite amounts of information you're flooded with, with the endless "to-do" lists, the constant running around either for work, to live up to social expectations, or tending to family needs. Not only do your bodies need to be taken care of, but more than ever, you need to learn how to rest your minds.
You will be learning various meditation techniques to help quiet the chatter in the mind and finally find that sense of peace, presence, and focus that your culture has compromised. The daily practice is not only something you'll be doing for the duration of the seven days, but a practice that has been designed so that you can incorporate it into your lifestyle when you get back home.
A form of meditation called inner dance will be also be introduced. Inner dance is a shamanic form of meditation intended to allow participants to trust, surrender, and flow (or just let go). Depending on your ability to let go, you will enter a deep meditative trance enabling a profound sense of expanded awareness.
The price of this retreat includes one water blessing from a high priestess, a day out on the farm, and an excursion to Bali's enchanted waterfalls.
