Bali Silent Retreat – Grateful, Blessed and Confrontational


Just imagine a place where you can breath, think, read, write, walk, and just be in absolute silence. A place actually less than three hours away from Uluwatu. Well, that is the place we just returned from.

It is hard to start to describe this beautiful, amazing and confrontational experience. But we feel grateful and blessed to have had this opportunity. To be able to absorb all that surrounds us in this serene environment in a brain-crunching silence. We definitely had our difficult moments but overall we feel a more balanced person. Ready for our next phase of wandering in Bali.

We have practiced yoga more than our body could actually handle. We have meditated for the first time in our life and boy was that confrontational. We wrote, we walked a jungle path, we experienced a labyrinth mediation. We had a fire ceremony with full moon and we slept a lot. What we did not foresee is how tired one can get when you do not talk. The loads of conversations and thoughts that cross your mind and are not going anywhere. And all of this in absolute paradise with absolutely divine food and wonderful staff.

In the next few weeks you will read more posts about our experiences at the Bali Silent Retreat but one thing we can definitely say: If you have a chance to visit, you owe it to yourself to go there. Just for you and to deepen your thoughts, yor path and in the end yourself.

Here some additional pics of where we stayed:
