This is your journey of healing, purification and finding your inner balance in the most authenticity of Bali.

Discover the Oriental mystery and magic at the house of a Balinese healer who is going to read your health and fortune, purify your body and soul with a blessing ceremony and a Melukat ceremony. Once again, you will be cleansed from impurity when visiting Tirta Sudamala through a Melukat ceremony taken place at a spring which is believed being able to remove negative aura.

day 2
AUTHENTIC BALINESE LIFE EXPERIENCE TOUR

Start off your day with a visit to the market of Gianyar, just 10 kilometers northeast of the glitz of Ubud, but decades away in time. It’s a flight of imagination back into the mystery and magic of the East.

A stroll on the local market is one of the most enjoyable ways to connect with the foundations of a culture that goes back several thousands of years. It is the place where families gather to eat delicacies such as roast pig, sweet cakes, chicken and coconut balls, fried bananas and tempeh and tofu — all aglow and golden atop of mobile kitchens on wheels that are ferried from other places. The distinction between scores of temporary and permanent food stalls become rather thin. However, they all cook up a mouth-watering and a jaw-dropping range of dishes. There’s everything from babi guling (spit-roasted pig with chilli, turmeric, garlic and ginger) to succulent combinations of vegetables that defy description. Much of the fun is just strolling along.

Then, you head towards the mountains. A short hike spans the distance between the temple at the outer border of the village to its center. You’ll be thrilled by magnificent views surrounding rice terraces. Depending on the time of the year, harvesting or planting of rice will unfold before your eyes. Occasionally a Balinese farmer will give you his most welcoming smile. Spot the small shrines in the middle of a rice field, dedicated to the Goddess of Fertility. Not a day will pass by without a delicate offering placed on its top.

You will experience first handed how a typical Balinese family lives and observe the traditional rules to build a house compound. They are amazingly defined by a set of philosophical rules, steeped in Balinese Hinduism. A village lady is engaged in the art of making temple offerings. Creating these apparent simple gifts to the Gods, is part of the daily routine of the Balinese.

In the afternoon, you continue to the house of a Balinese healer. He is going to see when you were born, read your health, fortune, and continue with a blessing ceremony and a Melukat ceremony which is meant to purify the mind and soul inside the human body. Purifying spiritually amounts to a process to remove bad influences or “klesa” in a human.

After having lunch at local restaurant, you will return to the hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore around at leisure.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Accommodation: The Alena Resort – Deluxe Room

day 3
MELUKAT CEREMONY AND MEDITATION & HEALING

After breakfast, you will depart for a cleansing ritual ceremony in Bangli.

First, you will be cleansed from impurity at Tirta Sudamala through a Melukat ceremony. This takes place at a spring which is believed being able to remove negative aura. It is also capable of being used as a natural therapy. It has 11 showers with different sizes and height, originating from a spring in the vicinity of a large, old tree.

Tirta Sudamala is also believed to eliminate diseases and ailments originating from black magic and related causes. This is achieved by bathing in all the showers. Aside from purification, the Balinese fetch the water from this spring and use it as drinking water.

Join the local people in physical and spiritual cleansing through Pengelukatan. One should first donate an offering to the priest conducting the purifying ceremony, then start the procession to leap to the river and continue to the 11 fountains. Finally, a priest will bless you with holy water.

In the afternoon, you continue to join the Love and Light Meditation.

Healing Without Medication.

If you have any issues or problems dealing with your health either physically, mentally or otherwise, a visit to the ashram, Mahattama Giri Kusuma ashram in Denpasar is highly recommendable. It is visited by locals and foreigners alike. In conducting the healing, divine light originating from all deities is channeled through the body. This creates a healing energy of the universe such as reiki.

People submitting to this treatment, are aware that humans, even the priests, are only mediums through which the Gods channel their positive energy. All this powerful energy is grouped into pure love and light. In order to be able to access the universal healing energies, you will be initiated by the Grand master, Ratu Aji, to synchronize your main chakras. After following the mediation course, you will have the ability for healing yourself as well.

Then, you will return to your hotel in Ubud. The rest of the day is free for you to explore around at leisure.
