UNITE: The Earth in Action (A BALI Retreat)

about this event

You offer a unique a valuable gift for the world…but a life of purpose can feel exhausting amidst the great shifts and turning of our times.

We are creating a space for change-makers, leaders, and spiritual warriors to connect deeply with their highest selves, with the earth itself and with something even greater in service of creating a livable world together.

By creating a nourishing and transformative container for connection, reflection and support, our aim is to leave you with more clarity, alignment and allies to do the important work of your life and be who you came here to be.

Over 8 days and 7, nights in Bali with consciousness-elevating practices, collaborative community, and the spirit of the island, we will be leading with the question, “What does the earth want to do through me?”

Through this lens, we will unite the worlds of environmentalism, social justice, mental health, and spirituality to forge mutually supportive paths and partnerships in service to the benefit of all beings and a sustainable future for generations to come. What’s more, we will discover our aliveness and abundant expression – mirrored by the earth itself – by discovering new ways to care for ourselves, the environment and each other.

Within the lush, nourishing beauty of a tropical paradise and upon the catalytic charge of a land born from volcanic alchemy, you will:

  • Receive 3 powerful KAP (Kundalini Activation Process) transmissions to penetrate to the core of your being, activating your Kundalini life-force energy for deep healing and transformation.
  • Experience 2 super-potent “I AM Transmissions” that support access to non-dual / unity consciousness and connection to source.
  • Learn practical meditations that sustain your vitality and connection to source while cultivating sustained embodiment of your best self.
  • Collaborate in circles of reflection and visioning with peer leaders and experts to unearth new insight, solutions, and support toward creating a more sustainable and flourishing world.
  • Experience the profound ritual and ceremony of the Balinese people and receive council from an elder priest from their unique Bali-Hindu spiritual tradition.
  • Connect deeply with the land and waters through guided walks and visits to sacred locations
  • Be nourished by curated and facilitated moments of authentic connection, sharing and support over delicious meals, fires and more.
  • Leave with the renewed clarity, inspiration and spiritual tools needed to co-create a better future with the earth itself.

We will be staying at Rahasia Manis, in the hills above Ubud. A natural retreat at the edge of the jungle, Rahasia is made for getting away from the more touristy areas of Bali and into nature. The land features a working garden and permaculture farm, 8 jungle huts and houses, 4 larger rice field homes, 10 m saltwater pool, wifi and all amenities.
