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 our retreat centre, surrounded by stunning rice paddies and coconut trees that will take your breath away. There is also a newly built pool, spa centre, meditation garden, reception, lounge, and yoga shala at our 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 our own village, of whom we are very proud.
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 our village life and connect deeper with our 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 we once thought they were, and what’s absolutely essential to the human experience is being able to connect with others, physically, emotionally, spiritually or energetically. Things that don’t typically leave a mark on our 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 us mentally fragile, it’s time to ask ourselves, how can we learn to live our lives with deeper awareness, positivity, and inner peace? How can we connect with each other in a more meaningful way? How can we look after ourselves better and kinder? Moreover, how can we love our Mother Nature more and cherish its beauty and abundance?
This beautiful 5-day retreat is a perfect opportunity for you to connect with yourself better by learning how our 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 learn from each other’s stories, experiences, and perspectives; to deeply destress, detox and renew your body and soul; and to grow deeper awareness of our inner and outer world especially our Mother Nature. 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 rewire 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.
This 5-day Positive Transformation Program is designed around four key practices:
In the Guided Meditation Program, you'll be given psychoanalysis and positive psychology-based guidance, hypnotic exercises, and powerful mind control techniques to work with your own mind and communicate with it effectively; to observe your thoughts and feelings from the inside out and cultivate non-judgmental & mindful awareness of yourself; to connect deeply with your inner voice and intuition and develop stronger mental and emotional resilience; and to learn how to truly relax your body & mind and blossom into the grandest vision you have for yourself. The sessions will be conducted with the assistance of aromatherapy and candlelight, creating a magical ambience that will help you to arrive into deep relaxation, wonderful peace, and blissful stillness.
In yoga practices, you'll learn different styles of practice including Vinyasa, Restorative, Yin, Hatha, Power, and Traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga, to help you develop greater body awareness, learn to listen to your body, supercharge your practice with the concept of neuroplasticity and flow effortlessly into stillness and inner harmony in order to experience the truth of who you are.
In meditation practices, you’ll practice various techniques such as Mindfulness, Silent, Tibetan Tonglen, Staring, 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 powerfully transform your mindset.
In breathwork practices, you’ll be guided through different breathing techniques and learn to harness the phenomenal power of your own breath; to release emotional blockages, pain, and trauma; to reverse the "fight-or-flight" response and deeply relax every cell in your body; and to feel perfectly safe and grounded in the present moment using the breath as your anchor.
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 Positive Transformation 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 journey.
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 from 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 extraordinarily transformative journey you so bravely chose to take for yourself.
Now you might be wondering, is this all that this program offers? Of course not! In addition to the key practices mentioned above, you’ll take part in wonderful workshops such as Oracle Deck & Creative Visualisation Workshop; Fengshui for your Inner & Outer World Workshop; Mindfulness & Self-love as a Lifelong Discipline Workshop and Balinese Watukaru Yoga Philosophy & Chakra Opening Workshop! Let’s not forget heavenly Balinese/Indonesian vegetarian/vegan/regular food, pampering spa treatments, and wonderful cultural activities/excursions such as Natural Coconut Oil Making, Waterfall Purification, Balinese Swing, Rice Farming, Balinese Traditional Ceremonial Dance Performance, and Balinese Cooking Class!
Now you must be wondering, who are hosting this retreat? The answer is the Mind’s Garden and Balitrees teams. Mind's Garden is a London-based wellness business that is on a mission to help people discover and grow the power for positive self-transformation through guided meditation, yoga, breathwork, and conscious dieting. They are a team of passionate individuals from previously diverse backgrounds before they began their individual paths of yoga and self-healing — anthropologist and mathematician from Cambridge University, psychotherapist, mindset coach, architect, Fintech entrepreneur, musician, holistic health coach, travel blogger, and graphic designer — all brought together by their shared passion for bringing positive changes to people's lives and making the world a little better and kinder, one day at a time. Balitrees is a joint effort of the local Ashram, Perguruan Seruling Dewata, and the villagers of Sesandan Megati, located in a Hindu city/region called Tabanan in Bali, Indonesia. Balitrees is a peaceful spiritual sanctuary located away from other tourism on the island and the home to Traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga, one of the oldest yoga practices in the world, focusing particularly on the inner flow of our chakra or kundalini energy and one’s spiritual awakening.
Together, Mind’s Garden and Balitrees are excited to guide you through a beautiful journey of powerful transformation, growth, love, and celebration of this glorious experience that we call life.
Creatively combining story-telling, journaling, psychoanalysis and self-reflective oracle deck reading, this deeply inspiring workshop will help you to understand yourself better, connect deeper with your authentic self and learn how to visualise and manifest the life you truly deserve.
Mind’s Garden Yogalates is a dynamic blend of Vinyasa yoga and Pilates, harnessing the physical & mental benefits of both practices. Expect to sweat a lot, get stronger and burn those calories!
Wondering why you revert back to the same behavioural patterns after a spiritually enlightened trip? The energy field (Fengshui) of your home might be the reason! In other words, your outer world can’t keep up with your spiritual growth! In this powerful workshop, you’ll learn how to apply Fengshui or rather, the quantum physics of your home environment, as a unique method of aligning your inner (your mind) and outer energy field (your home) so that quick and effective manifestations can take place in your life.
You’ll learn amazing Face Yoga techniques and Gua Sha, aka Scraping Therapy, to add extra glow and radiance to your skin; and get a deeper understanding of Mindfulness and learn to combine it with the practice of Self-love to live a more balanced and fulfilled life!
