Shamanic Alchemy – Sacred Union Retreat in Bali

Jul 27th to Aug 6th 2019, Holiway Garden – Resort & Spa Bali, Indonesia.


Join us on a Shamanic Pilgrimage into your Womb/Hara on the Magical and Fertile Island of Bali to unlock the Bounty and Mysteries of Sacred Union.

We long for love, for union and wholeness. Our deepest desire is to merge physically with another being in the unified field of love and oneness, to return to completeness and innocence. We yearn for tenderness, devotion, intimacy, admiration, enchanted encounters and the soft caress of love.

In this quest for oneness and fullness, we forget to look inside of ourselves, to dive within the rivers of our being merging our feminine and masculine currents in a union of ecstatic bliss.

The path of Sacred Union is an invitation to ‘open’ for love, for bliss, for original innocence. It is an ancient call to bring harmony back to life, to heal the split between the masculine and the feminine. It is an initiation in the Solar and Lunar currents within us, igniting and unlocking the keys to the alchemical inner marriage between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within.

In our 10-day journey, we will explore the union between the upper and lower worlds, being present in middle world, journeying with our masculine and feminine brains and body, our lunar and solar energies – inviting the alchemical potential of our womb/hara elements to become realized. Everything in existence exists in a ‘twin relationship’ and our connection to and harmony with this ‘twin relationship’ will affect our emotional, physical, psychological, energetic and spiritual health.

We will journey with the elemental energies of earth, fire, water, and air through our pilgrimage onto our womb (women) or hara (men). Each of these womb/hara elements affects our psyche, our emotions, our energies and how we navigate through our lives. Learning how to work with the gifts and the shadow medicines of each of these elements is embodied alchemy – the union of cosmic and primordial wisdom.

At the core of each Elemental energy is self-awareness. As we develop our awareness we can adapt our behaviors to create physical healing, emotional balance and a soulful purpose so that we can walk the path of love, with ourselves and with our beloved. As we integrate the illusion of separation, embracing yet dissolving duality, we can reclaim sacredness and spiritual union.

This Retreat is an invitation to remember and awaken our visceral intelligence, our ability to feel and be present in the body so we can relate to others and the Earth in a rooted and embodied way.We will strengthen our connection to the flow of life, anchor our ancient feminine wisdom in our bodies, awaken the sacred male shakti and open our Womb/Hara back into trust, authenticity,
pleasure and connection.
