Bali Retreat + tourism

Relax and allow Bali to root you back into your essence with a spiritually curated retreat for couples, partners, friends, or family. Let the adventure begin! Join Jamie Butler & Dr. Sarah Wilde as they host an eight-day adventure in northern Bali, at the Mahalani, with an option of a five-day extension in the heart of Bali, Ubud. The eight-day retreat, Embodiment of Energy, June 9-17, is for those who want to learn more about the energy that runs through them. Through movement, meditation, and educational classes you will be guided to connect to your inner life force. Our group will adventure out to see some of the sacred sites known throughout Bali. Swim in waterfalls, hike volcanoes, attend ceremonies, enjoy spa treatments, and bond over delicious native meals. Stay in a beach front villa on the Northern coast of Bali. Wake up to the sunrise, enjoy a swim in the ocean or one of the pools to start the day. Embodiment of Energy is geared toward learners of all levels. Take the work deeper or simply be in the place of beginning your journey with energy. 

Spiritual Tourism, June 18-22, 2023,  is independent of the Embodiment of Energy Retreat. Choose to come to both or pick one that resonates with you. This shorter retreat, in Ubud, is full of temples, amazing food, shopping and monkeys. Ubud is the cultural heartland of Bali and provides insight into the magical Balinese way of life. Feel the pulse of Bali for yourself.

Things to Know Before Booking:

  • Your initial deposit is non-refundable. In the incidence of unforeseen circumstances (including but not limited to significant illness, changing travel advisories or significant weather) that could cause travel disruption or trip cancelation, any additional payment rendered other than your initial deposit of $800 due November 14th, 2022 can be returned after 7-10 business days.
  • For the ‘Embodiment of Energy’ Retreat (in Packages ‘A’ and ‘C’): Limited villas are available for independent or single use. Most villas are Queen and King bedroom suites, so booking with a partner, family, friends or as a couple is preferred as bed-sharing may be your only option. Suites will be booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • For the ‘Embodiment of Energy’ Retreat (in Packages ‘A’ and ‘C’): Spa services such as traditional Balinese massage embraces physical empowerment, celebrating all shapes and sizes. Minimal draping is used to cover the important bits, however the open air treatment tables do leave little room for discrimination. If you are more modest, use of scarves and saris are encouraged.
  • Suggested packing lists and scheduled travel arrangements will be sent by email 30 days prior to your departure date. At this time, we can offer the following information: Bali is a humid, tropical environment with daytime highs of 88°F / 31°C and nighttime lows of 72°F / 22 °C. Depending on your reservations, water excursions to waterfalls, lagoons or the Water Palace can be anticipated. The ‘Embodiment of Energy’ Retreat also offers a 2-hour intermediate hike ascending a volcano. Be on the lookout for more information by email in the beginning of May 2023 for guidance and packing necessities.

Travel Planning + Advisories:

  • International flights to Bali are the least expensive within 10-12 weeks of your anticipated travel date. Be sure to continuously check availability for the best pricing options.
  • For the ‘Embodiment of Energy’ Retreat (in Packages ‘A’ and ‘C’): Early arrival at the Mahalani on Thursday, June 8th will be honored without additional cost for those who wish to settle in one day in advance of the official retreat kick-off. Airport transportation will be arranged and scheduled on both June 8th + 9th –  you will be notified of arranged travel options by email 30 days prior to your departure date which will support your arrival time.
  • Travel insurance can be purchased with an independent vendor or may be available with the airline of your choice when booking your flights. Travel insurance will not be proffered when reserving your retreat and may be purchased at your own discretion. Be sure to do your own research thoroughly!
  • Medical coverage and healthcare in Bali: Medical coverage can be an important part of your travel insurance, as it can cover the cost of treatment if you become ill or incur an injury. Your domestic health insurance plan will likely provide little, if any, coverage in a foreign country. Please check with your insurer before traveling to understand the scope of coverage
  • For personal safetyUnited Stated citizens may wish to enroll in the STEP program (Smart Traveler Enrollment Program – click here) to notify the Embassy of your travel. Enrollment ensures the U.S. Embassy can contact you in the event of a natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency. If you are traveling from another location, please contact your local Embassy and enquire about similar programs.
