12 days and 11 nights

* A time for personal transformation
*Yoga, meditation or Qi Gong every morning and evening
*Visit and receive treatments at beautiful (yet affordable) spas EVERY DAY
*Eat healthy organic meals everyday
*Sight See and Tour Sacred Sites
*Go on “Spiritual Adventures” (Fun experiences that are unique, a little daring and have spiritual intention)

This is a beautiful opportunity to take time for yourself, to focus on nurturing yourself and to create time for personal transformation. We will be staying in four different retreat settings that are tranquil and beautiful, all have a yoga or meditation studio. I will be bringing you to my favourite spas, a different one each day where you can receive massage, have a flower petal bath, exotic scrubs among many other treatments for a fraction of the cost that you are used to in the West and in incredibly decadent settings, aaaahhhh. We will go to wonderful organic restaurants with lotus gardens, art galleries and International cuisine. We hike to a secluded waterfall, we are brought to a private purification ceremony at the North Temple on the sea.  We will experience so many unique excursions that we’re calling this a “Spiritual Adventure Tour”.

You may choose to extend your stay in Bali past the group tour date.  I have suggestions for additional excursions if desired.
The price for the flight is usually between $800-$1200.

ITINERARY

1 Night stay at Sanur Beach

Segara Village, located on the white sand beach of Sanur.  It is about 20 minutes from the airport and has large swimming pools, swim-up bar, a spa, stores for shopping and many wonderful restaurants on-site and along the beach. We start our journey here so that you can rest and get sunshine as soon as you land.

3 Nights stay in Sidemen

A small traditional village with very little tourism, in the beautiful and serene setting of terraced rice fields.    Ayu and Ketut are our most gracious hosts and their wonderful staff soon feel like family. We will have outdoor yoga or Qi Gong every morning and relax by the pool, read, write in our journals, and eat organic food made by a gourmet chef from their own gardens.
Ayu will lead a Yin Yoga class one of the mornings, this is a beautiful experience in this magical environment that is treasured.
There will be an optional cooking class in their newly built group kitchen and an optional excursion to go with a guide for a hike through the rice fields and terraced vegetable gardens surrounding the village.

Transportation will pick us up in Sidemen, we will stop at a sacred site, view vast rice terraces and then arrive in the north of Bali, Tejakula, at the Gaia Oasis Beach Resort and Spa

3 Nights on a Black Sand Beach and Secluded Mountain Retreat

Gaia Oasis is a beautiful and peaceful health retreat center.  A place to drop into a deeper experience within. Yoga, Qi Gong and meditation sessions will be held twice a day at the retreat. All of our meals will be vegetarian (but with a seafood option) organic and included with our stay. Gaia Oasis is set on a black pebble beach and a second location at a mountain retreat with expansive views.
We will have the option to go to The Holy Springs, or hike to Les Waterfall or make your own hiking, resting, journaling or spa plans for the day.  Janice, your group leader, will offer an Intention Setting and Life Purpose group session during our stay.
We are blessed to be brought to our own private Purification Ceremony with a Balinese Priest at the oldest temple in the North of Bali on the sea.

To finish the trip, we will go to the Cultural and Art Center of Bali, Ubud.

4 Nights stay in the rice fields outside of Ubud

Transportation awaits to take us to Santra Putra Retreat Center and Art Gallery. We will get settled in for 4 night’s stay in 2-story bungalows in the peaceful setting of the rice fields. This is where I have stayed with the same family for the past 25 years every time I go to Bali, they are precious. Karja is a famous artist who has art shows internationally and is the Director of the Art Institute of Bali.  Karja will be leading us in a painting class (included), such an opportunity and a memorable experience. Santra Putra is 10 minutes outside of Ubud in the Camphuan/Penestanen area.
We will start each day with yoga, Qi Gong or meditation surrounded by Karja’s art on the walls of the art studio. Breakfast is included.
We will visit my favourite spas in Ubud each day there.
There will be an optional workshop at a beautiful Jungle Spa where you learn to make organic facial ingredients with the flowers and herbs grown in their gardens and then receive a one hour facial treatment.
I will take you out one evening to Traditional Balinese dancing at the temple grounds.
We will also go to a special Waterfall Cleansing and Purification site as the Balinese do to release negativity from our body, mind and spirit.
We will take a Sunrise hike along Campuhan Ridge ending up at one of my favorite spas for 2 1/2 hours of blissful spa treatments.

There will be time to explore Ubud, which is the artistic center of Bali with art galleries, music, dancing, and a lot of really, really good international (many organic) restaurants, spas, shopping, yoga centers, and environmental awareness groups.

Transportation will be provided to the airport for your flight back or if you are extending your stay, we have ideas for accommodation and day trips.

It is a good idea to find a balance of time for yourself and time with others if your intention is for a transformational trip; allowing for reflection, deep relaxation and rejuvenation. This is a really wonderful opportunity to take care of yourself, create a shift or change in your life that is needed and to have a magical time in a mystical place in the world. Bali is a very special place to experience the mystical aspects of life. It is my favorite place in the world to go for relaxation, spiritual inspiration and decadent natural beauty. If this sounds and feels like something you would really get a lot out of, please do not hesitate to call or email me for a more personal discussion and information.

INCLUDED IN YOUR TRIP:

  • Transportation:  airport transfers and all planned excursions throughout the trip.  Driving tours to other parts of Bali with an informative guide and reliable driver
  • Breakfast everyday, all 3 meals while at Gaia Oasis Retreat Center in North Bali
  • Yoga/qi gong/meditation everyday lead by either Janice or an assistant
  • 1/2 Day class in Balinese art and culture by Wayan Karja, painter
  • Traditional Balinese music and dance performance
  • Escorted temple visits and Sacred Sites.  For these visits you will be dressed in a Traditional sarong and sash and instructed in procedures for your temple visit.
  • Explore and hike Tjampuan Ridge on our way to a beautiful spa
  • Purification Ceremony at the Waterfall sacred site.
  • Purification Ceremony at a Holy springs at a temple on the sea

OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES

  • Relaxation and pampering at luxurious and unique spas that are affordable every day, costs are your own (spa treatments at my favorite unique spas range from $13-45 for 1-3 hours of treatments…yes, really!)
  • 2-hour workshop at a Jungle Spa learning how to prepare organic facial treatments
  • Arrange a visit to a traditional stone carving family or other traditional crafts
  • Visit a school with the Gaia Foundation
  • Enjoy wonderful inexpensive meals at the many beautiful healthy restaurants in Ubud

Bali abounds with unique gifts and crafts; bargaining is expected in most shops. Just relax, no phones or busy schedules. Let the ducks entertain you, have a cup of fresh ginger tea, watch the changing light in the clouds, and visit with other guests

We require a $500.00 non-refundable deposit to secure your space and full payment 60 days prior to leaving. The fee (minus the $500 deposit) is fully refundable up to 60 days before leaving. If you are coming from another country the cost would be $2295.00 USD

I’ve worked out the extra costs for meals, spa treatments and miscellaneous expenses for someone on a
tight budget $650.00 and someone on a more flexible budget $850.00 and if you brought an extra $1000.00
you would be able to shop, indulge eat and drink whatever you want for your whole trip! There aren’t many places in the world that you could say that.
