The Sadhana of Sacred Sounds and Silence

A meditation, yoga and sound healing retreat 

Bali, Indonesia, March 12-20, 2021


Do you wish to cultivate more mindfulness, rest and relaxation?
Would you love to tap into the power of your voice as a tool for personal transformation?


Join us in Bali as we explore the conscious use of yoga, vocal practices and rest back into presence by listening.

We will explore beyond our physical bodies to refine and transform our inner rhythms. Tap into the unseen energies of the subtle bodies of the chakras.  From the aspect of sound, we will use various aspects (skills), which include; mantras, singing, toning and improvisation.

As we align into our inner stillness we align into presence. This creates an inner spaciousness, which promotes a greater awareness to listen to our inner guidance. These ancient yogic and shamanic techniques, help to calm the mind, open the heart and create inner harmony.

This heart offering retreat takes place during a very special Balinese holiday called Nyepi. At this same time, the island of Bali is in silence and all is still, no lights, no fire, even the airport closes. This collective awareness will support our retreat.

About Bali

Bali is just one of the many small islands of Indonesia, but without a doubt, it is one of the most famous. Bali is frequently referred to as “The Paradise Island” because of its reputation in the world as a tropical paradise of untold beauties of nature, hosting a peaceful feeling and never-ending beauty. The island is also known as the island of the “Gods” because worship colors every facet of life among the Hindu Balinese in their daily activities. The whole of Indonesia is Muslim, Bali being the only Hindu island.

The local people are soft in nature, happy to help and very kind. From my personal experience, I feel it’s a safe country and very spiritual, which of course supports the practice of Yoga. Even though I say it’s safe, theft can occur and we recommend being mindful with your belongings in the bigger centres like Ubud and Denpasar, the capital you will be flying into.

Bali occupies an area of only 6,000 square kilometers. The longest distance is about 140 kilometers. Bali is located just off the eastern tip of Java, separated by the narrow Bali straights. The island lays eight degrees south of the equator. So expect some humidity. Our venue,  Bhanuswari, is located about one hour north of the airport, which is 20 minutes from Ubud seen in purple on the map. Ubud has a bit of everything from great healers, shops and delicious vegetarian restaurants.
