This retreat invites you to dive deep within to find your inner compass and learn how to use it effectively to wipe out old, negative self-beliefs and supercharge your mind towards a happier, healthier and more abundant life —when your inner world changes, your outer world starts to mirror that new inner world and your mind will do everything it can to help you achieve that vision.Let these beautiful five days guide you home where you accept yourself 100%, fall madly in love with who you are, and lead a life that isn’t perfect, but is absolutely perfect for you.
Balitrees Retreats is a joint effort of the local ashram, Perguruan Seruling Dewata, and the villagers of Sesandan. Together with their business partner/your host of this retreat, Mind’s Garden, a wellness business based in the UK, they strive to offer you a truly memorable experience, support the local community, and contribute to sustainable eco-tourism in Bali.
During your retreat, you can choose to stay in a shared or private guesthouse room or homestay room. Guesthouse rooms are located within the retreat center, surrounded by stunning rice paddies and coconut trees that will take your breath away. There is also a newly built pool, spa center, meditation garden, reception, lounge, and yoga shala at the retreat site.
The guesthouse rooms are traditional Balinese style bungalows decorated with a unique bohemian touch. Each ensuite room has a flat-screen TV, air-conditioner, bathtub, shower, toilet, wardrobe, desk and beautiful beds fitted with soft Egyptian cotton beddings. All the artworks in the rooms are beautifully done by artists from the village.
Homestay rooms are located only a short walk away from our retreat centre (5-8 minutes). They are part of local Balinese people’s homes. Staying in these super comfy homestay rooms offers our guests a great chance to be part of the village life and connect deeper with Hindu culture and people. Each room has a garden-facing terrace, a lounge area, a flat-screen TV, air-conditioner, shower, wardrobe, desk, and cozy beds with Balinese style beddings.
One of the most profound lessons the Coronavirus pandemic has taught us is the importance of connection. Material things don’t actually matter as much as you once thought they were, and what’s absolutely essential to the human experience is being able to connect with others and yourselves, physically, emotionally, spiritually or energetically. Things that don’t typically leave a mark on your heart become the very things we miss the most - a smile of a baby on the bus, the smell of freshly baked bread in the farmer’s market, chatting to a stranger in a bar and “Hello” from the homeless guy on the street.
When the pandemic fades away and leaves many of you mentally fragile, it’s time to ask yourselves, how can you learn to live your lives with deeper awareness, positivity and inner peace? How can you connect with each other in a more authentic and meaningful way? How can you look after yourselves better and kinder? Moreover, how can you love our Mother Nature more and truly cherish its beauty and abundance?
This beautiful 5-day retreat is a perfect opportunity for you to connect with yourself better by learning about how your mind works and how to make it work better for (not against) you; to meet and evolve with likeminded people from around the globe and share each other’s stories, experiences and perspectives; to deeply destress, detox and renew your body and soul; and to grow deeper awareness of both your inner and outer worlds.
What’s more, this retreat invites you to dive deep within to find your inner compass and learn how to use it effectively to wipe out old, negative self-beliefs and supercharge your mind towards a happier, healthier and more abundant life - when your inner world changes, your outer world starts to mirror that new inner world and your mind will do everything it can to help you achieve that vision.
Whether you are a complete beginner in meditation or yoga, or you have been practicing for some time, or you are an experienced meditation or yoga teacher, this Program will empower you with profound knowledge, wisdom and a fresh perspective on yourself. You and only you, hold the key to positive self-transformation in your own hand and it is your responsibility to turn that key. All you need to do is to learn to truly let go and believe in yourself consistently during this extraordinary self-journey.
In the guided meditation sessions, you'll be given psychoanalysis and positive psychology-based guidance to help you to work with your own mind and communicate with it effectively; to learn to observe your thoughts and feelings from the inside out and cultivate non-judgmental and mindful awareness of your body and mind; to connect deeply with your inner voice and intuition and develop stronger mental and emotional resilience; to care for your inner child and heal unresolved trauma or pain from your past; and to learn how to truly relax and blossom into the most beautiful vision you have for yourself. The sessions will be conducted with the assistance of aromatherapy, singing bowls and candle light, creating a magical ambience that will assist you to arrive into deep relaxation, wonderful peace and blissful stillness.
In the yoga practices, you'll learn different styles of practice including Vinyasa, Restorative, Hatha, Power and Traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga, to help you develop greater body awareness, learn to listen to your body and flow effortlessly into stillness and inner harmony in order to experience the truth of who you are.
In the meditation practices, you’ll practice various techniques such as mindfulness, Tibetan tonglen, zen, walking, hugging, and dancing meditation. These practices give meditation beginners a great chance to kickstart their meditation practice and experienced practitioners a wonderful opportunity to learn other techniques of meditation. You’ll make many new discoveries about yourself and open up to new perspectives and beliefs that will transform your inner world.
In the breathwork practices, you’ll be guided through different breathing techniques and learn to harness the phenomenal power of your own breath; to release physical and emotional blockages, pain and trauma; and to feel perfectly safe and grounded in the present moment using the breath as your anchor.
Remember that you may have different experiences from others, but you are not alone in how you feel. You may not be responsible for the negative things that happened to you, but you are 100% responsible for healing and rising above them. During this process, we encourage you to learn to let others in. Take one step at a time. Pace yourself. Ask for help when needed. Experienced teachers from Mind’s Garden will be right there to help you at every stage of this transformative journey you so bravely chose to take for yourself.
We often try to change something external when the thing that’s blocking us from our ideal state of being is internal. We need to learn to let go of all the self-beliefs and emotional patterns that no longer serve us in order to create space for positive changes to happen in our life. The art of letting go is about trusting our own journey, playing fully yet not attached to the outcome.
The most underrated relationship we’re in is our relationship with ourselves as it sets the tone for all the other relationships we have. Cultivating healthy relationships is about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with people who appreciate you rather than chasing after love to compensate for a self-love deficit. It’s time to let go of toxic relationships, people pleasing and emotional burnout!

09:00 - 10:00 Homemade Asian breakfast
10:00 - 12:30 “Find Your Path” - self-reflective oracle deck workshop
Creatively combining story-telling, journaling, psychoanalysis and self-guided oracle deck reading, this deeply inspiring workshop will help you to better understand the truth of who you are, connect deeper with your inner voice, and grow more confidence and inner strength. Owning your story and loving yourself unapologetically through that process is the bravest thing you’ll ever do for yourself.
Your body has its own intelligence, it feeds on not just the food you eat, but everything you say, think and do. The key to live a healthier life is treating your body with both kindness and discipline. Learn to set healthy boundaries, manage your stress and change your negative self-beliefs.
You’ll learn amazing Gua Sha, aka scraping therapy and face yoga techniques to add extra glow and radiance to your skin, and get a deeper understanding of the practice of self-love in order to live a more balanced, healthy and joy-filled life.
How is your relationship with Money? Does Money often make you anxious? Do you feel ashamed for having too little (or too much) wealth? Abundance is a mindset, what’s holding you back are limiting self-beliefs such as “I always struggle with money”, “this promotion is too good for me”, “who am I to deserve such a great guy?”. Let’s transform those beliefs and start welcoming beautiful abundance into your life, because you’re worthy and absolutely deserve the very best life has to offer.
In this powerful workshop, you’ll first learn how to use Fengshui, i.e. the quantum physics of your home environment to align your inner and outer energy fields so that effective manifestations can take place in your life. Then you’ll be guided through a series of mind-blowing exercises to ‘upgrade’ your relationship with wealth and learn to apply the gift of abundance to benefit not just your life, but the lives of many others.
Happiness is letting go of what you think life should be and celebrating it for everything that it is. Allow life to express itself through you, anchor yourself in the present and move in rhythm with your true nature. When you’re in the rain, don’t forget to dance!
Special note: Your hosts would love to check in with you and see how you're doing after this program. They offer a free online 1-hour private therapy session 3-6 months after the departure date of this retreat. :)
