Agni Hotra is an ancient fire ceremony originating from the sacred Vedic Hindu texts. Centuries past, the tradition of Agni Hotra in Bali was embraced and fused with animistic rituals; however, following a great fire, it fell out of practice nearly 350 years ago.
Today, there is a revival of the practice of Agni Hotra for its powerful healing effects not only in Bali but worldwide.
Agni refers to fire and Hotra means healing. This healing fire ceremony is considered one of the highest Vedic rituals. Specially trained priests make offerings of ghee and grains into the fire while reciting Sanskrit mantras to invoke blessings of health and abundance. Participants are also invited to join the priests at specified times with offerings of rice into the fire, as symbol of divine light. The ritual is for energizing and purifying the environment, healing both the participants and those living in the area. There are many anecdotal stories of healing in relation to the Agni Hotra and even evidence of benefits to agricultural areas where Agni Hotra is performed.
The natural beauty of the sacred land that Fivelements occupies, just 10 kilometers from the mountain town of Ubud, is full of healing energy. It is centered on a holy spring that marks the intersection of eight major energy lines. Six sacred spaces within the retreats grounds used for blessing ceremonies, celebrations, peace dialogue and private meditation are especially conducive to finding emotional and spiritual peace.
Within this unique space, the exceptional facilities that make up each guest's Balinese home have been designed to complement this incredible energy. With a strong focus on eco-credentials, the nature-influenced architecture provides the most propitious surroundings for transformational healing.

Living foods provide life force. Fundamental to personal health and a healthy planet, they support natural healing through cleansing to help us reach our highest potential. By integrating raw living foods into our daily lives, we can look forward to wellness, greater energy and mental clarity, a positive outlook on life and spiritual awakening.
Living or raw foods are highly rejuvenating. Plant-based foods in their original, un-heated (uncooked) state are considered raw and alive. They include fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, seaweed and fresh juices. When prepared uncooked or in a special dehydrating food dryer at less than 48C / 118F , they retain the vital life force nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen) and living enzymes required to digest food, repair cellular damage and create billions of healthy new cells every day.
Raw foods in Bali provide the maximum amount of energy with minimal bodily effort, and have been proven to help heal degenerative conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. These nutrient-rich foods are also effective in treating allergies, digestive disorders, weak immune systems, high cholesterol, obesity and weight problems, as well as various mental, emotional and skin disorders.
