Description

A Semi-Private Retreat during Nyepi

(Balinese New Year),

"Day of Silence"


This semi-silent, semi-private retreat, scheduled to coincide with Nyepi (Balinese New Year or "Day of Silence"), will include four locations/segments at four different stunningly beautiful private villas each in a different part of Bali. You're invited to join any or all segments with a special invitation to join the March 20-25 segment. On March 22, 2023, Balinese New Year, the Balinese people traditionally observe silence for a day of collective reflection. We'll gently ease into noble silence the evening before Nyepi and conclude the morning after—as a way to honor the place and people and our own deepest, most heartfelt intentions for ourselves and the world. Limited to 8-10 people. The daily schedule throughout the retreat will generally be: sunrise meditation (and silence until breakfast); delicious breakfast; mid-morning yoga practice (1.5-2 hours); lunch at the villa, or picnic; afternoon scenic hike, cultural excursion and/or free time; evening cuisine and dining (at our villa or nearby restaurant); noble silence from bedtime till breakfast. The menu will incorporate traditional Balinese cuisine and be primarily plant-based, gluten-free and dairy-free (chicken/eggs/dairy/gluten will also be available upon request).

Four Optional Segments:

  • March 18-20 (two nights) at a spectacular, luxurious, romantic, dreamy bamboo villa that was featured on the cover of Elle Magazine where the architecture itself is art. Located in an eco village south of Ubud overlooking the river and jungle greenery, it "has to be seen to be believed" as one recent guest described. We'll practice yoga and meditation in a tree-house like setting to the sounds of the river and surrounding forest.
  • March 20-25 (five nights) at a stylish and modern, newly built villa surrounded by rice fields with its own yoga shala (and massage room) during which we'll observe traditional Nyepi, "Day of Silence," for Balinese New Year. We'll be in a somewhat remote and rural, quiet location but only 10-15 minutes from the heart of Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali. In addition to daily yoga and meditation, this segment of the retreat will include cultural experiences and dining in Ubud, a ceremony with a priest at a holy water temple and optional hiking.
  • March 25-28 (three nights) at a breathtakingly beautiful and stylish villa with exquisite architecture and interior design that was featured in Condé Naste Magazine, in the hills overlooking the sea and seaside town Lovina. The luxurious indoor-outdoor living concept, sea breezes and yoga on the indoor-outdoor covered deck overlooking the infinity pool and sea beyond will surely be a highlight of the trip. 
  • March 28-30 (two nights) at a beautiful and modern seafront villa only 15 minutes from the airport but in a quiet location away from tourists where we'll see the sunrise over the water during our morning meditation, practice our yoga to the sound of the waves and take a gentle hike in the afternoon. A perfect place to complete our journey in Bali and a convenient location to depart from the Denpasar international airport.


Join us to experience the incredibly warm, kind, caring hospitality of the Balinese people and the deep spirituality of their culture.
