SHAMANIC HEALING & ADVENTURE RETREAT

SHAMANIC HEALING & ADVENTURE RETREAT

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

OVERVIEW

Bali is mostly known as the Land of the Gods. It is a place of aesthetic and physical beauty. The architecture and the landscape reflected in the Balinese who live there, in their art, music and culture which form an integral part of their lives. The mountains and the ocean representing positive and negative energies or the yin & yang, maintaining a perfect balance and harmony with the land.

This journey is an introduction to the deeper, spiritual and healing aspects of Bali. This is a place where the people are not only have a strong relationship to the land, each other and the divine but giving thanks to the Divine is part of their every day life. You will have the opportunity to meet with healers and trance channelers and experience personal healing sessions; participate in ceremonies and meditations in sacred places; have visits and private ceremonies in temples; snorkel in some of the best coral reefs on the planet; enjoy dance and music performances; have massages and spa treatments; visit markets and purchase arts and crafts; and simply enjoy the richness and traditions of a land steeped in an ancient and mystical culture.

If one comes with an open heart and mind, anyone with any sensitivity who comes to Bali will experience its healing energy and come away from it completely changed.

The retreats are available to individuals, couples and groups. We work with the size of max 10-12 people to be able to give the best attention to everyone. The groups receive very serious inner teachings. For this reason before applying ,we will ask you to fill out a form of questionary. This helps us to connect to your energies and study if your choosen retreat really fits you. It also guides us how to make your journey safer and deeper. Even if the questions seems odd to you, please answer with clarity and honesty (a good sense of humor is welcome as well 🙂 )

    I’d like to thank the team for the amazing experience! Taking part in this healing retreat was the perfect decision. It added so much to my life journey. I’ve went to Bali with so much questions about my life and I’ve came back with answers and the feeling of peace. Big thanks to this amazing people! Now I see the whole concept and philosophy of spirituality from a much broader perspective. The atmosphere was wonderful, everyone was really open-minded and friendly and on the top of that the surrounding area was very well chosen too. For me it was the perfect package. Highly recommended!

    My Samsara experience was a far cry from an adventure camp, it’s a spiritual getaway to rebuild yourself in every possible way, mentally, physically, emotionally. Go with the flow, feel the energy 😉 Thank you Lili for the amazing plant healing experience in the jungle!! It all worked well for me and my traveling buddies weren’t complaining either. The location is wonderful, the food was amazing. I highly recommend it.

    I attended some meditation classes before, but the 6 days I spent at the retreat really helped me to progress. As a holiday it was mind-blowingly fulfilling. Now I have the willingness to incorporate this experience into my life from now on. I would highly recommend!

    This was my first time in Bali and the hosts gave me a very special experience. I simply needed an adventure in a magical location. I was looking for an out-from-the -mass-tourism experience. With a small group I went to a hidden river and waterfall in the jungle, it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen and really a perfect spot to meditate. I was amazed by the temples we visited, so much beauty everywhere you look on this Island. I also loved the local food, it was so tasty (a bit spicy though). I also met with a healer who gave me the perfect kick to start over my life :)) I will definitely join the Samsara team again! I didn’t participate in the plant healing ceremony because I didn’t feel ready yet but I would like to go back and do it next time soon. A big thanks for the team!

    Luxury and spirituality rarely goes together, so this retreat is absolutely filling a gap. At least for me it was a perfect combination. I really appreciated the comfort, and the option of not giving up on anything I would want in a holiday but still having the purpose of practicing meditation. I was more than happy with the classes and lectures. Made , the teacher was very professional. The one week program was filled with so many different activities, (spiritual-journey fanatics were as delighted as my friend, who never tried meditation before but was looking for an “artist-y” getaway). I recommend this retreat to everyone who likes nature, peace and wishes to relax!
