Bhakti in Bali Yoga Retreat
November 3-10, 2012
Join Gopi Kinnicutt and Jahnavi Harrison at the Soul Shine Bali Retreat Center in beautiful Bali! Located just 5 minutes from the ancient city of Urbad, Balinese for medicine, and a place where priests and monks have come to meditate for thousands of years. This retreat will provide healing medicine for the soul, rejuvenating and transforming ones consciousness. We will visit the ancient Balinese temples and caves where monks have gone deep into their meditation and explore deep into the temple of our hearts, awakening and discovering our inner relationship with the Divine. We’ll enter the heart of bhakti, devotion and adoration through sacred sound and chanting (kirtan) lead by Jahnavi. Gopi will guide us through a healing asana practice each day, and through reflection and meditation, we will transverse and explore similar paths of the monks of Bali. Along with the praying (yoga) and loving (kirtan) we will also eat. The food in Bali will open your palette to wondrous flavors of life. We will eat, pray and love all with the divine purpose of igniting the inner fire!
We will explore Bali as we venture out to the Sacred Monkey Forest where an ancient Hindu temple welcomes us. We will be guided by the sacred Hanuman Monkey’s. Hanuman, is the emblem of devotion who teaches us that only through devotion of the heart will we find a deeper entrance into our living temple.
There will be time to shop, bond and have fun swimming, relaxing and soaking up the sun in Bali. This promises to be a trip of a lifetime!
