Summer Solstice in Bali

JUN 21 - JUN 27

Join us on our Summer Solstice Retreat this June in Bali! This reviving 7-day trip includes guided meditations, restorative yoga, spa treatments, excursions, and more in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The summer season is a time to invite fire into our lives and an opportunity to burn away all that we have outgrown and all that no longer serves us.

This proverbial ‘burning away’ is a purification; a disintegration of impurities within the body and mind. What becomes revealed is the true self at its most radiant core—an empowering illumination of the solar plexus chakra, the fiery energetic center of the body where one’s true essence, purpose wit and even ego are forged.

from $3,750 $3,650 per person

The Setting

There is no other place like Bali in this world. The Island of the Gods offers great beaches, countless waves and wonderful natural sites to visit and explore, colorful ceremonies, and gifted artists. 

But, Bali is much more than that! There is a special vibe, an essence, something authentic that is difficult to describe, which has touched and inspired visitors from all over the world since decades. It has something to do with the Balinese themselves and their warm and welcoming character.

Purification Ceremony

Enjoy a guided purification ritual at Tampak Siring Water Temple, the most sacred water spring temple in Bali. Balinese Hindus from all over Bali journey to the natural springs to help cure their ailments, spiritually cleanse themselves, and return to their villages with holy water to use for a multitude of purposes.

Keliki Village Art

The village of Keliki is a typical rural Balinese village. Its people are friendly and by walking around the village you will experience the color, serenity and beauty of everyday Balinese life in its unspoiled rural setting. Keliki is renowned for its fine highly detailed paintings of daily village life and Balinese Hindu dieties.

In the village, you will visit the artist’s homes and studios. They will show the stages of the Keliki style painting. The Keliki master painter and head of the school will personally lead us on a tour. Watch as the students, often times including children as young as 10, learn to paint highly detailed masterpieces. A great place to buy art as all the proceeds go to the school and the artists themselves.
