Balinese Yoga Healing Retreat

“We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.” – Marianne Williamson. As we watched the pieces of our life stories fading away, we are preparing for the dawn of a new age, the age at which the life is said to begin.

We are like a butterflies preparing to break free from the chrysalis into the light, ready to spread our wings and feel what it is to be free, a freedom that is born from a deep realization in this healing journey.

The catalyst for this journey of introspection was the breaking of our hearts. Our hearts that was hardened from many old wounds, scars from turbulent past. The hearts that was shattered with an astounding glory that it felt as though it will remain forever broken and disconnected from ourselves, the wonder of the delusional thoughts that live inside each and every one of us.

As we watch the pieces of our hardened heart crumble to dust, we keep learning to understand and find something buried deep within. A consciousness that we had never before felt or experienced. The understanding of the consciousness by witnessing the feelings, the pain, the fear.

We have dealt with the previous pain, fear and anxiety by suppressing this extreme feelings or distracting ourselves with work, parties and avoiding of time alone. This time, in this retreat, is going to be different. Instead of suppressing the feelings, we will allow ourselves just to be.

These feelings that want to arise, will arise. And we will learn to recognize them and let them be. The feelings that will make us understand who we really are and rejuvenate our hearts. Heal the hearts and allow us to reborn within this life time.

Within the process we will learn and prove to ourselves that no fear is greater than the strength we have within us. And our life will never be the same. We will dive into ourselves and dig up all we had buried, in every skeleton and every corner of our joints. Look face-on at the parts of ourselves that we love by opening, understanding and healing every wounds we had ever allowed ourselves to carry.

We will walked ourselves through each memories and let us learn knowledge from them. For each and every situation we learn to observed and accept the responsibilities for all parts in all situations. We will learn to sit with our understanding of emotion, not judging or criticizing, just observing and allowing it to just be.

Within this week of retreat, we will begin our journey and bring calmness and sense of peace to our experience. Each shining path of the enlightenment will come to us as we learn about ourselves layers by layers, and we will find ourselves to be more present and living in the moment. The powerful energy from places we visit and the energy from our healing center will induce the healing process, renew ourselves, and give us protection when we return home.

The retreat will be held at Umah Shakti Yoga, home for the hearts that crave to explore, learn and experience life mindfully. Our healing center is located in the heart of Sanur city, a peaceful house compound surrounded by gardens and family temples that protect our home. The surrounding energy is cleanse daily to maintain the purity and create strong rail of protection for us to live, and to practice our spiritual journey.

At our family temples we connect to our ancestors who protect us through life, at the same time gain knowledge and guidance to solve obstacles we face in this reality; mentally and physically. Our home and the Island of Bali possessed unique vibrancy that powerfully support our journey of hearts.

Here is what you will experience…

Daily Meditation, Pranayama and Gentle Asana Yoga

bali-pranayama-yoga.jpg

When we first hear about meditation or pranayama or asana yoga, many of us think that it is something complicated, something we cannot do or don’t have time for or something reserved for only certain types of people. The truth is, when we finally make time to do it, we may understand that it’s something we can do and will help us to understand ourselves better. All of these practice is aiming to help us become more relax.  We will learn to allow our mind to rest, while the body is having time to heal. We will learn to connect our body and our mind and synchronize the language that might be lost between the two parts.

Healing Breath & Trauma Release Therapy

the-feeling-healingbreath.jpg

“You think freedom is something you can take of give? Freedom is just as essential as air, and without it, there is no life. There is only darkness.” – Guru Lahima.

As we breathe every day, we might think that our breath is something that is not so special. Thus, we have taken advantages of our breath. We never think of the breath during our daily life, cos we think there are many more things that is more important than the breath such as work or money. We don’t realize that without breathing, there is no life.

Through this practice we will learn a technique to approach our feelings with our breath. We will learn to understand and differentiate the complicated relation between emotion and feelings itself. We learn that emotion is something in the surface, while the deep within lied down feelings that we never touch, or even want to see. When we understand truly about how we feel, we will know what we want, thus we know what we should do in this life. Following the true desire and hidden talents that we always have. We may finally do things we love and find happiness in this life.

Practice making offering and Balinese Purification

makingbanten-e1524729876467.jpg

In Balinese tradition, each of the purification required offerings that is made with natural material such as coconut leaves, flowers and fruits. The making process of this banten (the offerings in Balinese language) is as sacred as the purification process itself. Each of the offering represent the connection our our life and what is the goal of our life. Connecting each relation with the energy of the Paramatma Sang Hyang Widhi who inhabit each of our soul and give direction in this life.

The offering will be made by each of us (participants) with the direction from the assistant of the priest, who will led the purification ceremony. On the purification process we will use the banten that we have made. Purification ceremony is not only to cleanse the physical body, but also to enlighten the mental body. Create tranquility and peace in the mind also feelings of contentment in the heart.

Visit to the Biggest Botanical Garden on the island

bedugulkebunraya.jpg

We will visit a large tropical botanic park located in the central of the island, about 56 km from Denpasar area. This park is place for botanical research, conservation, recreation and education. It provide a place where we can relax in a beautiful and peaceful surround while learning about the function of the plants in our daily life. The park provides vast cool space to enjoy and meditate, also to practice yoga asana under the trees. This one day is going to be “back to nature” day for all of us!

Balinese Purification (Melukat)

sunrise-purifcation.jpg

Melukat is the ceremony that is spiritually purification the mind and the soul. This ceremony only carried out in the good day in it’s tradition. Purifying spiritually means a process to remove bad influence or klesa (Balinese term). Klesa translated as “dirty”, there are four klesas which are: Awidya (soul darkness that is come from egoist), Asmitha (attachment & craving), Dvesa (rejection and hatred) and Abhinivesa (fear). As this klesa always exist in human, the ceremony helps to reduce the klesa in the mind realm, thus can help the person to feel to calm and peaceful.

The first purification will take place at our home perform with the priest and the second purification will perform at the ocean. We believe that one of the most powerful source to cleanse ourselves is the ocean at dawn.

Art and Expression

painting.jpg

One view of emotional expression in art is that, “It is proceeded by an excitement from a vague cause about which is a person uncertain and therefore they become anxious. This person then proceed to express their feeling and ideas through words or paint or stone, something they can create and they love to do, to clarify them and achieve the release of a tension.”

Instead of reflecting states of the external world, art is held to reflect the inner state of a person. At least, seems to be implicit in the core meaning of “expression” as the outer manifestation of an inner state. Through art, we will closer to ourselves. We allow the idea to be projected and manifest these ideas into the reality.

About Via Wijaya at Healing Breath programs here.

Healing Breath programs is a collective programs to share and learn about breathing technique with a specific approach. The technique on Healing Breath eventually targeting to create tremor on the physical body in order for the body to create reaction in the mental and emotional expression state in the natural way. Why do we need to allow the body to express this mental state? Because in every single part of our physical body that was hurt or storing pain from the previous trauma, that part of the body will create “residue” or the waste energy in different form. When this waste is not being cleaned, it will stay in the body. This waste can be stored in the body in the form of water, gas, mucus, tears, etc. Thus waste if stored in a long term might cause damage to the inner organs.
