2020 Spiritual Retreat (March)

icm bali2Our connection with spirit (the divine) is the foundation for everything in our lives. When we feel this deep connection, we experience balance, harmony, and a sense of inner peace of knowing who we are. When this connection is missing, it is not uncommon for us to feel out of balance, overwhelmed, or simply just confused with life in general.

Known as the “Land of the Gods”, Bali is a perfect place to undergo this reconnection to our spiritual selves.  As such, a special six day/five night spiritual retreat in Bali will be taking place in March 2020.

TRANSFORM THE SOUL – A Six Day Spiritual Retreat in Bali

icm bali4During your six day stay on the beautiful island of Bali you will be immersed into a combination of Balinese spiritual practices as well as Western metaphysical concepts that are specifically designed to (re)connect your mind, body and soul back to the divine source (however this appears to you).

Transform the Soul spiritual retreat will enable you to be embraced by the gentle, yet powerful force, that will encourage you to slow down, let go and relax. Once this happens, you will be able to open up to the voice within, feeling a sense of connectedness with all that is around you.

During the six days that we will be spending time together, you will have the opportunity to:

:: Participate in a SOUL CLEANSING AND PURIFICATION CEREMONY at a sacred water temple
:: Connect with the sacredness through the preparation and presentation of unique Balinese OFFERINGS
:: Perform a CANDLE LIT MEDITATION in the tomb of the ancient kings
:: Visit two of Bali’s most sacred temples, PURA BESAKIH (the “Mother Temple”) on the slopes of Mount Agung (an active volcano) and PURA ULUN DANU BATUR (dedicated to Dewi Danu)
:: Marvel at PURA LEMPUYANG, the “Gates of Heaven”
:: Visit TIRTA GANGGA, the beautiful former royal water palace in eastern Bali
:: Challenge yourself and climb MOUNT BATUR near the village of Kintamani
:: Bathe at a hidden waterfall
:: Experience the uniqueness of NYEPI (Bali’s Day of Silence)
and much more.

ICM baliMost mornings will commence with the opportunity to explore and enhance your own body’s strength and capability through gentle yoga asanas suitable for all levels as well as instruction on calming the mind through pranayama (breathing techniques).
