Meditation, Yoga, Prayer and Restful Contemplation – in Silence
Bali Silent Retreat is more than yoga and meditation – it’s a restorative and inspirational sanctuary removed from the demands of busy-busy complicated lifestyles. Surrounded and protected by rice fields, jungle, Mt. Batu Karu, and spiritual essence, you can ‘retreat’ and ‘take-time-out’, nourish your body & soul, and find yourself again. In your own time. On your own schedule.
Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world, as in being able to remake ourselves. -Gandhi
