The retreat venue takes place at East Bali in the Sidemen area, specifically at Nirarta Centre. Here, nature’s unfolding presence sustains the natural unfolding of your own renewal. Nirarta nestles above the Unda River, beyond the village of Tabola.

The name Nirarta translates to “wealth in that which is not” which points to the knowledge that springs from the simplicity of not knowing and the abundance abiding in the silent source of life itself. The Nirarta Centre aims to provide a bridge between the knowledge and insights of the West and the deep wisdom woven into the colorful fabric of Bali.
