Bali September 2019 

Creating Your Empowered Future
  By Embracing the 5 Elements

1st - 7th September 2019


Come on retreat with us and allow inspiration from an exploration of the 5 different elements to facilitate a deep dive discovery process of your own inherent true nature. Our overriding Intention for the week will be to facilitate a gentle release of any energy that is limiting your ability to truly Know and Be Yourself, so that you emerge from this experience with more Authentic Confidence, a greater sense of Freedom and Peace, a deeper degree of Self Love, and an overall higher level of Happiness as your reality as you step into your future. 

We will use the theme of a different element (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space) each day to inspire our collaborative facilitation of your discovery and empowerment process as you get to immerse yourself in the program of Guided Meditations, appropriate level Yoga practices, Light Language energy process’s, interactive discussions, inspiring excursions, conscious eating, and still plenty of personal time to enjoy swimming, sun basking, walks in nature and spa treatments.


Join us for a week long journey of learning, transformation, inspiration and Joy. The beautiful and tranquil surroundings will also play a large part in your transformational and healing experience.

   

Delight in Bali's warmth, magic and hospitality as you nourish and nurture your mind and body. Everything will be taken care of for you. Sit back, relax and prepare to be pampered. Everyone is welcome.


Location 

Gaia-Oasis Retreat is located in Tejakula, in the northern part of Bali, off the beaten track of mainstream tourism. The perfect location; nestled in a green sanctuary and offering the best of both worlds; stretching from a lush mountain top to its foot holds by the sea.



A ten minute shuttle bus ride gives you access to two locations, wake up to your yoga practice in the mountains and complete the day with dinner by the sea.






Accommodation 

 

Dotted throughout Abasan Mountain Retreat are private Balinese-style bungalows. All homes are located at a discreet distance from their neighbours and come with fully-equipped kitchens and open-air bathrooms. Each home is unique and situated in beautiful private gardens. 

Dinning & Food

Look out into the Pacific Ocean and feel the fresh breeze as you tuck into our three daily buffets comprising healthy and deliciously balanced Indonesian and western-influenced dishes. Prepared by a Balinese chef and his team, meals are largely vegetarian with fresh ocean fish and produce from our organic gardens.






Mineral water, different teas, Balinese coffee and cocoa are available free of charge throughout the day. Around mid-afternoon, complimentary snacks ranging from delicious, light cakes to traditional Balinese sweets are also provided.


High Quality Spa


A high quality spa complex is situated at the retreat venue offering a wide range of nurturing experiences, from basic massages, to facials and beauty treatments with everything in between delivered with caring hands. Prices are amazingly low compared to western standards, so be prepared to be pampered.





Salt Water Swimming Pool


The salt water swimming pool is built on a mountain terrace, with uninterrupted views across the verdant orchards to where the distant ocean meets the sky. 

Play... exercise overlooking the resplendent valley... or simply relax on the wide natural stone terrace. The pool is 17m long so large enough for doing laps and there is a stone terrace alongside that is suitable for bodywork and yoga.




Walking Trails


Gaia-Oasis Retreat is criss-crossed with walking trails that range from gentle strolls suitable for walking meditation to more strenuous full-day treks taking in breathtaking views from various vantage points throughout the property. Explore our ten acre retreat; hike along the ridge dropping down to the Yeh Lalang River, or journey through traditional villages, temples, orchards and jungle gorges. 





Mountain Lotus YOGA Room

Feel the early morning sun rays on your skin and find stillness even as the local community and animals stir quickly to the cacophony of life. Located directly below the dining terrace, one side of the room is totally open, looking out on a lotus-filled rainwater collection pool and lush green surroundings. In this beautiful setting, you can relax, meditate deeply and reconnect with Creation.

"The retreat in Bali with ManTarA, Matt, Marie and our group is an experience I won't forget for 2 Reasons:

#1-Paradise.  From the breath-taking views at our lodge, a magical waterfall experience, a very powerful and palpable water cleaning ceremony, to some of the most incredible food I've ever tasted, we were soaking in high vibrations the whole time, which allowed for even intense and powerful daily energies of ManTarA to become integrated with ease and grace. 

#2- Arriving at the retreat I felt burned out, lacking passion for what I did, and unclear of how to move forward in my relationship and career. A mere week later I left the retreat feeling incredibly empowered, supported and confident in moving forward.  

Even now, about a month later I'm finding that money and clients are flowing to me nicely, I am excited about "putting myself out there", feel connected and aligned with my passion and my relationship with my partner has opened up to a surprisingly new level of growth and intimacy. Thank you, Matt, Marie, and ManTarA for inspiring and empowering me to live a life of balance, space and allowance for all of these wonderful things to unfold."

“It was an extraordinary experience for me to be on a retreat led so effectively by a married couple.  The organisation of the elements as a daily theme with yoga and light language was profoundly transformative. The retreat centre truly was an oasis, and I was amazed that everyone at the retreat stayed in health and harmony throughout the program.  

It is safe to say that Matt and Marie under promised and over delivered.  It was a generously high value experience at a very reasonable cost.  The excursions and group experience were also very supportive and powerful.”
