Oriental Medicine Retreat North Bali with Rebecca Blackman & Diane Carter
20th June – 25th June – North Bali
A powerfully relaxing experience where you will breathe and heal within a beautiful setting with experienced guides.
Oriental Medicine explores the nature of Yin and Yang and the pathway to balance. Perhaps you’ve been experiencing hormonal imbalance, stress and anxiety or low metabolism.Your highly qualified teachers will share self care rituals and practices that will include Yin Yoga, Meditation, Acupressure and Acupuncture which bring vitality and the energy “Chi” back into your body removing dullness and stagnation. You will leave the retreat feeling revived and restored.
Your day starts with the morning sunrays on your skin, as we guide you through a peaceful Yin Yoga practice in our open air Yoga shala. The shala overlooks a lotus-filled rainwater pond. This idyllic setting sets the mood for your day as you unwind, meditate and reconnect with your soul.
The region is criss-crossed with an abundance of walking trails that range from gentle strolls to more strenuous full-day treks. Fancy a swim after your stroll? The retreat has its own private, saltwater lap pool, solely for the use of our Ray of Light guests. You will have plenty of time to read a book, swim or rest in the shade of a Bali hut over looking the pool.
The food on our retreats is always a highlight and our guests always leave satisfied. We are passionate about nourishing your body with nutritious meals. You won’t need to lift a finger as the local chef’s serve delicious buffets filled with balanced vegetarian dishes from our Indonesian and Western-influenced kitchen. Fresh juices, coconut water and mocktails are also available throughout the day.
We will help you feel connected to your own spirituality as we experience Bali’s deep spirituality and cultural rituals. Expand your knowledge with an agenda that includes: lectures, a tour of the retreats temple, and a fascinating insight into Oriental Medicine. Together we will experience a powerful cleansing ceremony where the river meets the ocean at a Balinese sea temple. Traditionally it is said that: “the body is washed with water, the mind is cleansed with honesty, the soul is cleansed with learning penance, and the intellect cleansed with knowledge.”
We would love you to join us in June/July for our magical five night escape, where helping you prioritise your health and happiness is our most important goal.
