Join us at the beautiful retreat center of Jiwa Damai in Bali to further self-exploration and unlock the ancient wisdom that is stored in your body. Step away from your daily life, into the Island of the Gods, and allow yourself to explore your Inner Truth! During this week, we will practice the embodiment of each of the seven energetic centers, known as 'chakras'. The entire week is a balance of facilitated learning and self directed discovery. Through Sound Medicine, Crystal Pyramid and Singing Bowls, Yoga Classes, Breathwork sessions, guided meditations and movement classes, this Soulful Retreat gives you the opportunity to explore and build a relationship with your chakras.

Praise for this Journey

"The biggest thing that stands out for me about DST the extremely well organized nature of the tour, while still 'going with the flow' and allowing the energy dynamics of the group determine what happens next. This shows me that Nina knows the destinations inside and out and has an intuitive ability to observe the larger vision while remaining attentive to the details."
