About the Retreat
Gabrielle invites you to The Inner Temple, where Noble Silence will be upheld from sundown on Day 1 to sunrise on Day 5. The reverential practice of silence in the form of controlled speech and quietening of our thoughts is a way to open ourselves to the sacredness of the peaceful, unmoving and silent state of the Self; beyond all constructs of noise, which is our true nature.
This deeper journey inward is an honest attempt to be present with ourselves as we regulate our ways of being. We don’t see the world as it is, we see the world as we are. Our perspective and how we embody our intentions in our thoughts and actions is the approach we use to get through life, and they determine how we see the world around us.
This silent retreat will be accompanied by Yoga philosophy and practices, breathwork and meditation. In separating our inner and outer experiences, we will pave the way for union to enhance the quality of our participation in life.
Recommended for those who have an existing meditation practice and have the resolve to preserve the noble silence and sanctity of the programme's intention.
About the Resort
Away from the bustling beach club party scene synonymous with Kuta and Seminyak; the more reclusive West Coast of Bali, where rich cultural heritage is still much preserved, is a place where time stands still. Where presence and connection is all there is.
Overlooking the holy Balian river, where many serene wellness and healing traditions were hosted by villagers amongst its sacred waters, this 10-bungalow resort gives a taste of barefoot luxury amidst admiration for the astonishing gifts of nature.
The waters of the sacred Balian river flow beautifully into the ocean. Where they meet is not your typical white sand and blue water beach, rather, it is a mystic mix of shiny black sand and vivid green misty shores merging with over hanging cliffs. The tranquillity and beauty of the natural surroundings perfectly supports an immersive environment for learning, grounding and inspiration.
This retreat will host no more than 18 persons in a buy-out setting that will preserve the sanctity of its intention. This will also allow us to be fully cared for by the heartwarming hospitality of the Balinese. 11 of your meals will be catered for, with a curated wellness menu to detoxify your body from the inside out.
Rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis upon registration and settlement of full payment for the retreat.
