What you’ll love about Source…

Source is a secluded creative yoga retreat up in the north of Bali, surrounded by jungle, close to a stunning and powerful waterfall and just and meters from one of the most sacred springs on the island. The space is kept simple to offer a nature immersion experience, with simple and clean local meals eaten in front of treetop views or together around a fire.

You will stay in simple yet comfortable, open-air cabins, shower in and drink from the holy spring, share sweet, open fires, and practice to the sights and sounds of the jungle. There is intentionally no internet here and minimal person-to-person contact to encourage reconnection to nature and the self.  It is the ideal place to quickly build very strong bonds within your small group and facilitate deep transformation.

Each visitor immediately drops deep into the mesmerizing sound of the river, re-patterning consciousness through natural harmony. You will be in constant close contact with the land and the processes involved in bringing your food, water and spirit to our daily experience. This is an extremely healing venue; the water comes straight from a holy spring in the sacred mountain and is as clean and life-giving as is possible in this world, and the food is plucked from the surroundings and rich with prana.

The atmosphere invites internal exploration, breaking down stories, resistance and boundaries and fostering reconnection with the land and with spirit. Each person who comes here expresses a desire to stay in this peace for longer and we have many cases of deep self-discovery and restoration happening as a result of the wild and inspirational location.
