Heavenly Bali – the pearl of Indonesia

Discover the healing powers of Bali

After two wonderful retreats in February and March 2020, the Bali retreat will take place again in 2023.


In this 8-day retreat we make an inner journey to the paradise within ourselves, the pearl in our own heart, by fully immersing ourselves in Balinese cultural customs and rituals.

We are introduced to the mystical soul of Bali, also known as ‘the land of the Gods’. All over Bali there are daily rituals, from the colorful villages to the serene temples and shrines. Offerings are made in banana leaf trays filled with rice grains, petals, fruit, and coins surrounded with incense. Blessings are requested so that good will conquer evil, light will make darkness disappear, and heads bow to the heart. There is music and dance so that only the pearl within the heart sparkles.

Balinese rituals

On our journey we will discover the healing qualities and the power of both small daily rituals and grand temple ceremonies. We experience the beauty and lightness of Bali that makes the pearl within your heart sparkle.

We have the unique opportunity to immerse ourselves in the water of one of the most sacred water temples of Bali, usually only open to Balinese people. Here we will receive blessings and healing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

We will also participate in a special healing session during which we experience the power of sound for inner balance and harmony. The authentic instruments used in this session were crafted during the time that instruments were developed as tools for healing and meditation.

Our accommodation: The Grace of Mother Earth

Surrounded by green rice fields and densely forested jungle, a stone’s throw from the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali, Ubud (Balinese for ‘medicine’), we are guests in the beautiful, peacefully situated and lovely Basundari retreat, entirely in Balinese bamboo style.

We will be accommodated in bright, comfortable 2-person cottages, spread over the lush jungle-style garden. No two cottages are the same and they all have beautiful views of the surrounding rice fields and jungle.

We are welcomed with a traditional Balinese ritual in which we receive blessings so we may experience prosperity and abundance.


We start the day with yoga and meditation on the open yoga platform overlooking the jungle. Following a lavish, healthy Balinese breakfast we set off. We walk across the vast green rice fields, experience the magnificence of the jungle, listen to the rustling of palm trees and enjoy colorful villages on our way. During our journey we will mostly be in silence.
Each day we will attend a ritual or ceremony and experience authentic Bali.
We usually have lunch at one of the small food stalls along the way, a real Indonesian experience.

In the afternoon there is time for relaxation in the oasis of tranquility at the retreat resort and there is plenty opportunity to work on your personal assignments. Relax at the cozy swimming pool, retreat to the treehouse meditation deck or take a seat in one of the many seating areas or hammocks in the idyllic jungle-style garden.

Late in the afternoon the program continues with a short meditation and sharing experiences. We end the day with an excellent vegetarian Indonesian meal and a short evening meditation.

When the retreat ends, we will also conclude it with an authentic Balinese farewell ritual.
