For more than 2000 years across the entire continent of Asia and beyond, women dedicated their lives to cultivating and channeling the sacred feminine energy, for vitality, for life, through practising the sacred temple arts of dance, ritual and healing. These times when Temple Arts were intrinsically integrated in society seem almost non existent in our modern day culture and ways of life. They are however very much alive still, in ourselves, as women, as vital flowing energy, and is always abundantly flowing and available, in each of us.

The Today’s Rituals retreat is an invite to return to the temple.

We welcome you to Bali, beloved Island of the Gods, where spiritual practices are deeply rooted and still alive today, where ancient temples sites are abundant and still buzzing with activity, where nature is lush and overflowing, showering in elemental care and support, where we can breath, be, rest, rejoice and rejuvenate. Where we can nurture our nature and be true to our essence and calling.

Do you feel the call?

 
 

“The psyches and souls of women also have their own cycles and seasons of doing and solitude, running and staying, being involved and being removed, questing and resting, creating and incubating, being of the world and returning to the soul-place.” 


- Clarissa Pinkola Estés -

Western women are considered to be free, but for some applies the more we explore our feminine core the more we experience a resistance as there is no time or space for our subtle sounds and intuitive power. By trying to succeed in western society we spent our lives ‘making it’ in a man’s world where there isn’t much attention for soul-living. Resulting in women who are more masculine than feminine, drawn far into intellectualism, work or inertia. Because that is the safest place to be.

But things are changing, we are getting glimpses of feelings. We start to recognize an inner voice telling us that this way isn’t sustainable. We are experiecing a global shift; the return and rise of the sacred feminine.

The todays rituals retreat is an invite to return to your own temple. It is a call to arm for women to rise up and ‘re-member’ our immense power as women.

In this retreat we take you on a journey to places where you otherwise wouldn’t come. We have mapped out a beautiful route that will bring you to the hidden gems and secret power spots in Bali. No big touristic attractions for you, we rather bring you to places where you connect with nature and recharge yourself. We travel from hidden waterfalls to high mountains to mesmerizing tropical beaches. We have invited local teachers and temple dancers to enrich you with their wisdom and knowledge in their specific field. On top of that we will visit several temples and receive initiations.

The size of the group will be a minimum of 8 women and a maximum of 15 women. We will be of mixed nationalities and the spoken language is English.

The Retreat starts on the new moon of Friday 5 April.
We welcome you at 4 pm with an Opening ceremony followed by a welcome dinner.

Our home for the first 3 days will be a beautiful lush retreat space in Ubud, the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali.
Ubud comes from the word ‘obat’, meaning healing medicine. Not surprisingly, it is a vortex & hub for the healing arts, locally and internationally acclaimed.

Daily we will immerse in yoga, dance, vocal, journaling and other soul nourishing ritual experiences & practices that spark our radiant essence and embodiment. Balance this with a relaxing massage, downtime by the pool, afternoon nap, all possible.
An excursion to one of Bali’s most sacred water temples is included in these days, where we will enjoy a ceremonial bathing & blessing.

On Tuesday 9 April we will journey through the mountains to the North of Bali. We will visit healing Sulfur Water Hot Springs on our way. Our destination is a beautiful retreat location on the north shore of Bali, where we will continue our nourishing temple practices, and we may now also enjoy our time by the Balinese ocean.

We will enjoy a special ceremonial day trip on Thursday 11 April. There we will venture to a sacred waterfall valley where we will receive initiations from the heart of Mama Bali. This will be the highlight of our Retreat. We won’t share too many details here, but to give you a hint: ‘it is truly a magical experience not to be missed’.

Our closing ceremony is on the evening of Friday 12 April. After enjoying our breakfast on Saturday 13 April we all embark for our departures.

 

Rituals---title.png
 

A ritual is the art of consecrating space, to create the ‘right kind’ of circumstances and conditions for a certain desired outcome to occur. Magic can arise when you step outside the collective conventions and dare to transcend yourself.

If we wish for a flower to grow and blossom from a seed, we have to nurture & care for its environment & facilitate most favorable conditions for this miraculous process to happen. When we choose our rituals consciously and perform them with clarity of vision, focus of intent, mindful awareness and dedicated presence, a ritual has powerful creative potential.

Our rituals are built around the elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether. They focus on the themes of letting go, inviting in, setting intentions, forgiving and connecting with the feminine essence. Our rituals are designed to deepen your connection with your self, the natural rhythms and cycles of life, and our relationship with each other.


Our rituals include:

Sharing Circles
Sacred art of setting intentions
Dance
Vocal & Movement practices
Yoga
Breath work
Sound Healing
Temple blessings & initiations
Journal Writing
Ceremonial tea sessions
Alternative forms of bodywork
and more !
