Explore spirituality and mindfulness in Bali

Bali is known as “island of the gods” and once you step foot on the island, you’ll deeply understand why. The Balinese culture is unlike that of anywhere else in the world – it is one that is deeply rooted in spirituality and reverence for the divine. You’ll notice offerings in front of every home and business, ceremonies happening daily, and grand processions in the street when you arrive in Bali!

To walk the streets of Bali is to see colorful temples, striking stone statues to Hindu gods and goddesses, and to smell incense that awakens the senses. It’s a place with a deep yogic lineage, and you’ll need to take a yoga class while you’re on the island! You’ll find a rich community of locals and expats that have found a rich and meaningful life on the island.

Deepen your spiritual practice in Bali

If you are like me, Bali came into your life through Liz Gilbert’s work, Eat Pray Love. I found that book after rustling through my mom’s things (I know, a dangerous thing to do) and I picked it up and never put it down! It introduced me to this idea of rich spirituality, full time travel, and dropping everything in pursuit of yourself.

I read that book when I was 15 years old and immediately began re-organizing my life to include world travel and the pursuit of the divine. Of course, Bali was an inevitable destination for me. At 28 years old, I finally experienced living in Bali for 2 months and it was ground breaking.

Bali has gained massive popularity, and while a lot has changed since Liz Gilbert’s pilgrimage here 20 years ago, its ancient wisdom and spirituality remain.

I met a Balinese Medicine man, and discussed my past, present and future. I participated in a Balinese Water Purification ceremony, and bathed in a holy waterfall. I have deepened my yoga practice and engaged in a heart opening ceremony. I practiced Himalayan Kriya Yoga, and worked on releasing trauma and drama that was stored in body.

This island is divine in every way, and it is the absolute most aligned place for the sober yogi and thoughtful traveler. I cannot wait for Bali to reveal its wisdom to you, to nourish you, and to bring you peace.
