7 Nights in the Mystical Healing Mountains of Bali, Indonesia!
This yoga retreat will begin at Bagus Jati, the temple also called 'Pura Batur' is the second most significant mountain temple after the Besakih Temple. The surrounding retreat property is nestled in lush and healing mountains, this will be our home for 5 nights. Daily yoga and meditation offerings in our own private yoga shala, traditional Balinese meals and a deep dive into traditional Balinese culture awaits as we visit to some of Bali's most sacred sites! Such as:
Tirta Empul, or Holy Springs Take in the holy waters at one of the most sacred spots on the island of Bali. Tirta Empul is a delightful and deep way to experience the spirituality of the locals, as you immerse yourself in the rituals of the Balinese people. After purifying yourself, wearing your temple dressing, step fully clothed into the waters of Tirta Empul. Ducking your head under each of the 13 holy springs, feel the significance of the waters as they cleanse your past and you emerge ready to create the future. You will be surrounded by locals who will support and appreciate you as you make this powerful shift. This is a trip very few tourists take.
Besakih Temple- The “Mother Temple” -the mother of all temples on this island of 10,000 temples! Besakih is built into the very slopes of the sacred mountain, Mount Agang, and is considered one of the most important spots in Bali. Will follow along as the local Pedanda (Balinese priest) pray with flowers, incense, and rice. This is a beautiful way to honor the local traditions, and is very appreciated by the locals.
Seva Project (service) -We will spend the day with a local healer as we head our on our Seva (service) project at a local orphanage, after spending time with the children here we will head back to our Healer's home for a traditional Balinese dinner and baby turtle release back into the ocean.
The last two evenings will be spent at the lovely Gayatri Hotel in Ubud. Local shopping, temples and the Sacred Monkey Forest are all available to experience here!
