Retreat Details

The Retreat is held near the secluded mountain village of Munduk at an altitude of 1000m, deep in the bamboo rain forests of North Bali. Each day starts with Solo Meditation at 6.00am (optional) ~ an opportunity for you to practice what you’ve learned in previous classes and to help build and maintain your personal practice for after the retreat.

Breakfast is at 7.30am followed by 9.00am morning class, then get ready for your daily Forest Walk. At selected natural beauty spots along the way you can practice Tai Chi and Qi Gong and absorb the abundant Qi of nature with relaxing stretches, breathing exercises, and energy meditation.

During the retreat a natural force field develops within you that recharges your whole being with healing energy that promotes positive changes in all aspects of your life. The health benefits, mental relaxation and spiritual strength accumulated on this retreat can last for several weeks, and is a great inspiration to keep up your daily practice at home in health and harmony with nature.
