TOUCHING THE SUBTLE
29 DECEMBER 2019 - 4 JANUARY 2020
GAIA RETREAT CENTRE, UBUD, BALI
CLOSE THE YEAR IN BALI ♡
Join me and my dear friend (experienced Yoga teacher + facilitator), Michaela Westermark, for an end-of-the-year retreat in the magical Bali: a week to remember, re-awaken and consciously enter into the new.
Come along for a journey of movement, transformative Breath Work, somatic practices, meditation, sound and ritual, cacao ceremony, nourishing food and stunning nature.
Closing the year by lovingly letting go + creating more space internally, and then consciously entering into the new on a magical land, unsurprisingly known as the Island of Gods.
ABOUT CACAO MEDICINE
Cacao is a wonderful heart opening medicine. In a non-psychoactive way it facilitates a warm loving space for an authentic and deep connection with yourself, others, and all of life. The ancient Aztecs and Mayas used cacao shamanically, and it played a huge part in their culture. It is a powerful spirit assistance for inner work, opening to creativity, entering a deep meditation thus receiving insights and guidance, but most importantly - spending some time in the heart space. Therefore anything that wants to be acknowledged or healed or expressed has the container to come up.
It's a beautiful and meditative ceremony - there will be sound healing, and singing, and guided practices as a part of it. Creating a light and joyful platform for entering into the new year via very magical space that wants to embrace you lovingly for spiritual purposes.
The nearest airport is Ngurah Rai, also known as the Denpasar International Airport. There are good international connections via Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok.
We can help to arrange a taxi pick up from the airport, which is about an hour away from Ubud.
There will be a group taxi pick up from centre of Ubud on the morning of the first day of the retreat. Please make sure to arrive in Bali ahead of that.
Gaia Retreat Centre - Boutique eco-friendly resort, surrounded by an abundant jungle, and nestled in the heart of terraced rice fields. Located in the creative mecca of Ubud - the most desirable location in Bali, voted the friendliest town in Asia.
The view from the villa is quintessential Bali. Swaying palm trees, therapeutic breeze, beautifully landscaped rice terraces and wind chimes singing away. The grand entrance of opens up to marble and teak wood that has 8 bedrooms, on-site massage room, far infrared sauna, soft hot tub jacuzzi, semi open dining area overlooking the rice terraces of Bali and a beautiful chlorine-free pool with decks and views to soothe the body and mind.
