BALI Jungle Retreat

For men and women

22 - 29 March 2020

Check in: 2pm on Sunday 22
Check out: 10am on Sunday 29

Join us over 7 full days for a deep, soul nourishing upgrade.

We'll create the space for rest, rejuvenation, healing and activation - harnessing the manifesting magic of the Spring Equinox to seed our highest visions and dreams in paradise.

Our ethos is always connection. And so, during this once in a lifetime retreat we'll be dropping into practices that explore deep inner union and peaceful balance. We'll explore the powerful dance of yin & yang, masculine & feminine on this fun & replenishing journey.

Held within the abundant green jungles of Bali, we're offering you a totally unique UAMSA style journey. One that will leave you feeling refreshed and inspired, strong and connected.

We will honour the land, peoples, planet and ourselves through daily ritual practice and offer you a medicine bag of tools you can take away to support you in your day to day life.

Our Home

We are very lucky to be hosted within a beautiful, eco-conscious, private villa which is close, but just outside of the magical buzz of central Ubud.

Backing onto an undisturbed valley, fringed by rice fields and lush gardens - our idyllic eco-lux home is a hidden gem! A truly serene home, with abundant charm and elegant suites for a private and restful stay.

You'll have access to an exquisite swimming pool overlooking the jungle, infrared sauna, beautiful shala and plenty of space to lounge indoor and out.

Highlights: What's included

- All accommodation
- 2 x daily movement sessions: Yoga (dynamic & restorative/yin) inc qigong.
- Daily meditations & breathwork
- Cacao Medicine ceremonies
- Men & Women's Circles
- Deep healing Sound journeys
- Traditional Balinese Blessing Ceremony
- Water Temple Blessing with Balinese Priestess
- Waterfall Experience
- Sunrise Volcano hike
- 1x complimentary massage
- All transfers
- 3 delicious plant-based meals per day (exc. final eve where we'll eat out together).
- Plenty of free time to relax & explore Ubud (Monkey Forest, Temples, Jungle Swing, Markets etc)


Please note: NO EXPERIENCE is required for any of the above. Just an open heart. Also know that everything is OPTIONAL.
Our intention is for you to deeply honour your personal journey and to get the most out of the retreat.

BONUS!!

Whilst here we are very lucky to have the honour of experiencing one of Bali's most sacred days, 'Nyepi" - the Balinese New Years. On Nyepi Eve you will have the opportunity to participate in local ceremonies and celebrations where spectacular parades are held to banish bad energies from the land.

And the following day we'll join the rest of the country honouring a meditative Nyepi, which is a time to stay at home, meditate, give thanks and reflect on the coming year ahead.

It's no coincidence, we feel that this is happening during our retreat and give thanks for the alignment and blessing!

SUN 8TH SEP || 3-7pm
@ THE PORTICO GALLERY SE27, 0HS

We warmly welcome you to an evening of Rebirth.

On July 21st as we make the astrological shift out of the sign of Cancer and into Leo we will consciously work to release deep seated energies that no longer align with our truth and create the space inside to welcome the new.

We’ll begin with a gentle yoga and qigong practice to open the body and then a deep rebirthing breathwork session, followed by a soothing sound healing journey to integrate and seal the experience.

++++++++++++

Rebirthing Breathwork is a conscious, connected body/breath technique which activates an expanded awareness physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Through the circular breathing technique this awareness allows thoughts, feelings, physical pains and energies that have been held down with the breath, to surface and be released, cleared or resolved. The process ultimately frees up energy in the being to bring about a greater sense of aliveness, joy, fulfilment and connection.

The space will be safely held by Rebirthing practitioner Damian and his wife Kara, alongside experienced healing practitioners and spaceholders Diahann and Felix. You will be supported throughout the entire process.

We will end with a closing circle and some light refreshments.

Please note, there will be limited spaces for this more intimate event so book as soon as possible.

We are here to answer any queries you may have.

£42 (+£2 booking)
