Awaken the Goddess in You

Spiritual wellness comes from within and radiates from the soul. Goddess Retreats facilitates a personal reconnection to the deep richness of life, self-love and empowerment. We want you to experience a soulful journey, that will lead you to a higher level of inspiration and transformation!

There is always a point in our lives where we need to take time out for ourselves. It can be when you are feeling burnt out at work, or you are going through an important life or relationship transition. You start to feel the call to make a positive change in your life, to let go of old energy, past selves and embrace the part of us that wants to evolve towards increased happiness and peace.

We don’t believe a spiritual retreat must be serious and rigid, but rather serve as a safe place to look inward and enjoy the process of self-development, healing, and self-love with a healthy balance.

Every retreat is slightly different, as we offer various spiritual, wellness and cultural experiences with each retreat package. Retreats are led by practitioners in their area of expertise and do vary depending on which retreat date and location you choose.

Traditional Balinese Healing

Bali is famous for its long history of traditional healing therapies, known as Bali Usada. Balinese traditional healing practices use natural herbs and spices, holistic therapies and ancient wisdom to cure physical and mental illness. Traditional healing modalities are prominent in Balinese culture today, which include natural herbal remedies, massages and energy work.. Balians are viewed with the same status and respect as western doctors and have different specialties to heal specific problems of the body. A balian taksu draws power from nature or spirits and creates medicine from holy water, flowers and plants; while a balian ketakson will communicate with spirits to seek insight into an illness, sometimes going into a trance to heal people. Applying a deeply intuitive, holistic approach, they will consider physical symptoms as well as a patient’s mental and emotional state. Treatment is seen as a journey where the individual’s willingness to heal is an integral part of the process, and may include ritual cleansing ceremonies, herbal potions or inscriptions drawn on the body. During your Balinese Traditional Healing session, you may be given natural medicine, a collection of basic healing herbs made into remedies. Popular Balinese natural medicines are: Loloh – where leaves are crushed and mixed with water to drink and boreh – ground up herbs and roots which are rubbed onto the skin.

*This is not included in retreat packages, but can be added to your retreat experience for an extra fee.

Sound Bath Healing

Sound healing is an ancient practice that uses the sound and vibrations of instruments, such as gongs, singing bowls and tuning forks, in order to relax the mind and body and create a deep sense of well-being. Sound healing is a powerful healing modality to treat a number of conditions, including anxiety, depression, and other emotional imbalances. It can also help to lower stress, assist with pain management, improve sleep, lower inflammation, and balance mood. Specific frequencies can range from the beta state (normal consciousness) to the theta state (relaxed consciousness) and even the delta state where internal healing can occur. Vibrational medicine is based on the idea that dis-ease is a result of our bodies’ natural resonances becoming out of tune, due to stress, illness or environmental factors. Sound therapy works powerfully, in a gentle and unobtrusive way, to return the body’s own vibration back to its natural state.

*This is included in our Ubud Goddess Retreat package and can also be chosen as a Bliss Day Option on our other retreat programs – Bali Goddess, Fitness Goddess, Surf Goddess

Conscious Connected Breathwork

Some common types of breathwork include diaphragmatic breathing, alternate nostril breathing, and the Wim Hof method.

The benefits of breathwork are diverse and can positively impact both the mind and body. Some key advantages include stress reduction, improved mental clarity, enhanced emotional balance, and increased relaxation.

It can also help individuals manage symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Regular practice of breathwork may contribute to increased self-awareness and mindfulness, fostering a deeper connection between the mind and body.
