Balinese culture is one of few that has plenty of myths and legends, which brings us forgotten knowledge. One of those legends inspired us to create this trip. According to the legend water of the Island of Thousand Gods has a divine origin from the bosom of Mother Earth Goddess. Maybe that’s why Balinese faith often called Holy Water Religion.

If you perform the rite of ablution in 5 waterfalls you can wash away some of your negative karma and energies that bind you from evolving. That’s why in a day of waterfall trip ASTAWA Retreat set an inner intention for deep mind and soul purification and exemption from unwished habits and complexes. For best results, they advise you to do short meditation right before each waterfall.

Of course, it’s better to go on that kind of journey in a state of openness and acceptance to let island energies to purify and nourish you. Being under the water flow imagine how the water takes away all your anxieties and blockages and makes your soul see the light in any life situation. Let the Island show you its magic!

It has been experimentally proven that water, which for a long time has been subjected to various types of influences such as prayers and a desire for good, changes its crystalline structure under the influence of positive vibrations.

Since ancient times, the people of Bali have believed that water reflects the consciousness of humanity. Sending beautiful thoughts and wishes under a waterfall's stream you activate the connection to the True Source through positive intentions and emotions, you directly influence the biological processes and structures, and the healing of the soul and body begins, peace comes, health and happiness fill your subtle energy field.

Scientists have proven that vibrations are the basis of everything and, under the influence of external stimulation, water takes in information coming from the outside. The world was shocked by the experiments of a Japanese scientist who proved that water can hear, see, feel, and remember everything that is being said to it.

Therefore, water can be one of the most powerful medicines. Water is like an artist's canvas that can be painted with positive wishes, thoughts, and it only depends on you what picture your life will draw.

This three days adventure towards the fulfillment of your desires will begin with yoga and meditation, where all the anxiety and tension will leave you, giving you the freedom to dream and create a new life. You will go to a meeting of adventures, where the rough stream of the virgin river runs through the impassable jungle.

You will see the fantastic views hidden in the depth of the island. Before you, mysterious canyons and picturesque falls will open. There are legends that say that if you make a wish under each waterfall, it will come true for sure.

Almost all your life you have been looking for yourself, but rarely really find it. Amid social norms, family roles, family obligations, and self-made standards of behavior, how can you find yourself?

The questions people ask themselves

  • What solution does the ancient wisdom of yoga offer?
  • How to find yourself in this diverse world?
  • Who are you at the very bottom of your being, under a myriad of layers and tags, temporary roles, and obligations?
  • Where can you find your happiness? How do you understand your purpose and find meaning in life?
  • How to achieve harmony with the world, the people around you, and yourself?
  • What is self-awareness? How can one finally realize oneself? And what to do with the conscious?
  • How should you direct your attention and efforts so that life finds true meaning?

It does not matter how old you are, what social position you occupy, whether you are a student, parent, businessman, or retiree. Everyone in the modern world needs refuge from stress, anxiety, loneliness, emptiness, and personal problems. Everyone can enjoy a beautiful sunrise, regardless of age, earnings, profession, or something else. Also, everyone can practice meditation and receive its fruits.

About Yoga Classes:

The style of morning yoga practice at our retreat can be considered as classic hatha yoga which includes SUKSHMA VYAYAMA (warm-up), SURYA NAMASKAR (dynamic warming exercise) and static postures (ASANA) with dynamic transitions between them (VINYASA).

Evening practice is a YIN yoga (long fixation of stretching postures aimed at relaxation).

Morning meditation practice - breathing awareness meditation (ANAPANA) is given in a classic approach: all necessary instructions will be given right before the practice and then practitioners will seat in silence, meditating according to instructions.

Evening meditation after YIN yoga class - candle meditation (TRATAKA). With the same classic approach, our instructor will announce the main aspects of this practice, and then you continue at silence.

There are many different types of meditation and it may happen so, that the one that you’ve tried before is different from what ASTAWA Retreat is using. The approach that they prefer doesn’t imply any music or voice guidance DURING meditation, as long as silence can be considered as the best substrate for developing focus, and any sound from the outside is basically distraction which takes part in your attention and concentration.
