I am very excited to announce my meditation and yoga retreat in Bali, Indonesia, next year. And you’re invited!
I first attended a retreat at the Bali Mandala resort on the north coast of Bali in 2010, and returned the following year because I loved it so much. Words cannot express how special this place is to me. It was a catalyst for great transformation in my life. I wrote about it here.
Gisela, the resort’s owner and meditation teacher is an exceptionally inspiring woman. Her teachings are delivered in a gentle, open and simple way which makes them accessible for first time meditators (as I was).
Ever since my last visit in 2011, I have wanted to return.
I knew I would return.
When I contacted Gisela to get her thoughts on hosting a retreat for us, she gladly agreed and encouraged me to use my ‘manifesting energy’ to bring together a group of people who will benefit from this experience.
I am so happy to be able to connect more people with her wonderful teachings based in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, delivered in this beautiful, healing space on ‘The Island of the Gods.’
I am thrilled to invite you to join me for this special journey; a week long retreat of relaxation, self-care, delicious, nutritious meals, gentle yoga, meditation and massage, surrounded by a spectacular natural landscape, far from the hustle and bustle of southern Bali..
Perched over the North Bali Sea and set amongst lush tropical gardens, the resort consists of individual bungalows, a large yoga and meditation shala, a waterfront restaurant (which serves delicious food!), day spa and a fresh water pool overlooking the sea.
The bungalows are simply and elegantly furnished, with fresh flowers arranged daily. You’ll listen to the birds in the trees and the waves crashing onto the shore from your individual terrace or the delightful outdoor shower.
The spacious meditation shala is set under a high thatched roof with doors that open to the elements, allowing the sea to become the soundtrack to your stillness.
It is a space which is both nurturing and invigorating, allowing you peace and tranquility while connecting with other individuals on the same journey.
- Six nights’ elegant bungalow accommodation.
- Three delicious and nutritious meals per day, including herbal teas, coffee, mineral water and one fruit smoothie per day.
- Three one hour massages at the on-site spa.
- Group transport from South Bali (meeting point to be advised) to the Bali Mandala and return.
- Twice daily yoga and meditation classes, involving a variety of techniques including stillness, movement and contemplation, taught by our masterful guide.
- The use of two Stand Up Paddle boards during your free time.
- A visit to the resort’s community project, the Saraswati school for local children.
- A welcome gift.
The cost of the retreat is AUD $1199 (approx. USD $1050) for twin share and if you don’t have a room mate you will be paired with one. If you would like your own room, the cost is AUD $1399 (approx. USD $1230).
I will be available from now until then to assist you with flights, hotel reservations for before and after the retreat and answer any questions you may have.
We will be participating in the retreat together, receiving Gisela’s wonderful teachings centered in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition which includes different practices of stillness, contemplation, movement and more.
This is not just any yoga retreat. This is a unique opportunity to discover your true nature in a nurturing and relaxing environment, while enjoying the delights of sun, sea, delicious food and pampering massages.
Retreat from daily life to recharge and connect so that you may manifest your truest desires and most authentic self. Take time to relax and reflect, away from the demands of work and responsibility, so that you may access the power, peace and wholeness within you.
Spaces are limited to ensure an intimate group and I am very pleased to have already filled several places (including my Mum, one of my oldest, dearest friends and possibly my sister Holly, but she just got a big promotion so we’ll see!).
So if you would like to be part of this experience, book your place!
I look forward to hearing from you and I cannot wait to share this special experience with you. Please share this with anyone you think may be interested in joining us!
