Rest, revitalise and inspire: A nourishing personal, clinical and business retreat in Bali for health practitioners
*Applications closing – only 1 cottage left*
We’re excited about the retreat and glad you are too.
Here’s a few more details about the retreat, including the cost and application process. When you’ve read them and are ready to apply, there’s a link below to download the application form.
What, where and when
This unique five day retreat is for health practitioners, in clinical practice. It is being held on Sunday 28 May – Friday 2 June 2017, at the beautiful Swasti eco cottages on the outskirts of Ubud.
Swasti means ‘healing’ in Sanskrit, so we can’t think of a more perfect place to take care of our inner healer. They grow their own organic vegetables and take pride in creating tasty, healthy meals.
You will stay in cottages or traditional-style rooms, surrounded by gardens, in an eco-friendly environment.
Once you arrive at the retreat, you’re welcome to stay cocooned at Swasti and enjoy the tranquillity. Your meals, accommodation and the workshops are all included. We’re also including a free massage, as well as a movement and meditation class before breakfast each day for those who like to start the day mindfully.
The main workshops will run in the mornings. After lunch you’ll have plenty of time to relax, enjoy the pool, have a massage, snooze or dream. Do whatever you need to nourish yourself. For those who need more stimulation, Ubud is a 20 to 40 minutes’ walk or a short drive away.
Later in the afternoon we come together again, for a short session before dinner.
We encourage you to make the most of this unique experience and use the time outside of sessions for self-care, reflection and relaxation.
Please plan your flights to allow at least two and a half hours to clear customs and travel to the retreat, so that you can check in no later than 3.30 pm on Sunday 4th June. We provide free transfers to and from the airport for those arriving on 28th May and leaving on the final day.
