Bali Mandala Retreat and “The Sacred Flow: Alchemical Rejuvenation Retreat for Teachers”
March 20 – 27, 2009
Immerse yourself in one of the most sacred cultures of the planet – where the art of flow is a living experience. The ritual center of Bali in Ubud will be our base for exploration of the magical inner world of the spiritual culture dedicated to the balance of the Great Dance in the form of Siva. Our retreat takes place during the preparations for Nyepi, Balinese New Year, and a day of fasting and reflection where even the airports of Bali shut down to observe the ritual opening to a new cycle. A Hindu island for over a thousand years, Bali is a unique opportunity to receive a deep transmission of the art of bhakti yoga devotion.
Some of the highlights of our retreat include:
- Six day preparation for the Nyepi Festival in which the entire island of Bali shuts down – no electricity
- Study of Balinese ritual cycle with a focus on the Kecak (monkey chant) ritual dance
- Learning to make Balinese offering
- Seva in a local Balinese orphange
- Yoga Trance Dance
- Eco-Revolution yoga in healing fluid bamboo structures of the Green School of Bali
- Jai Hanuman – feeding of the monkey families who live at the temples in the Monkey Forest
