the road less travelled, the real bali!
Beloveds! It's time to let your palate climb its way up into the untouched coconut forests and banana plantations at the edge of East Bali. Come and plunge your soul into this wildernested sanctuary away from civilisation with us...
22-27th march, 2019
At the end of a winding pathway through the jungle, where forest meets the sea, is a natural playground equipped with the kind of simple tree-top houses overlooking the surf, that strip you back to what's most important in life and stimulate the type of soul guidance and wisdom through the art of listening to the earth from your heart.
Join facilitators Brooke Elliston and Lara Zilibowitz for 5 nights and six days of dynamic yoga, Tantric meditation, live soundscapes, ceremony and of course wild natural adventuring...
Our days will be filled with tropical romping and roving as we fertilise the soil and seedlings of our innermost ecology through a combination of guided practices, self reflection and outward adventure.
Our coconut forest cocoon is a playground of delights, and we’ll leave plenty of time for you to wander and wonder whilst exploring the black sand and surf of Jasri beach, getting very familiar with the chocolate factory on site or putting your feet up in a swaying palm hammock with a fresh coconut, or treat yourself in one of our onsite massage rooms.
Our lodgings will be onsite in traditional Balinese villa accomodation at Shanti Agung and round the corner (440m) at Aashaya Resort. Both locations exude a raw simplicity, in keeping with their tropical beach-side location, with options from solo or twin share tree-top mosquito net-swaddled sanctuaries looking out over the surf, to honeymoon suite seclusion, depending on your sleep preferences.
What makes this place so special, more than the site of the majestic Mt Agung volcano on one side or the perfect point break swimming with local sea turtles on the other, is the love poured into it over the last decade. This special refuge has been donated to a local family who have infused it with the kind of Indonesian homeliness and openness that makes Bali so special.
You will be nourished from the inside out with the most exquisite local flavours, celebrating the abundance of tropical Bali. Our beautiful cooks Mr and Mrs Komung, are the homeowners and householders, and they lovingly welcome us to dine at their family table. You can look forward to three healthy doses a day of this Balinese medicine ~ predominately vegan with eggs and fish available for those who wish.
All fresh, all local, all DELICIOUS.
