While developing our meditation practice in an urban environment is essential for daily living, there is something uniquely special about retreating into nature to deepen one's inner journey. Within a natural environment, one can renew the senses, rejuvenate the body & mind, and find the space for reflection, contemplation, stillness & silence. We invite you to join us for our third 6N/7D meditation retreat facilitated by Maitreya amongst terraced-rice fields and the Unda river in the mountainside of East Bali!

We will have an exclusive stay at the beautiful Nirarta Centre in Sidemen, Bali. Nirarta is set in a lush river valley of terraced-rice fields and tree-clad hills, straddled by the imposing presence of the sacred mountain, Gunung Agung, to the East of Bali. The views and atmosphere are breathtaking. Nirarta has 11 guest rooms in six bungalows (twin-sharing), each with delightful views. A large, light, eight-sided wooden-floored meditation hall lies at the heart of Nirarta, also accommodating the staff, who meditate twice daily. All the bungalows are connected by paths running through the lush flower-filled gardens. A refreshing breeze up the river valley keeps the temperature pleasant, as is true for the Nirarta site as whole. Nirarta’s gardens border the river for more than 150 metres. To the north, two forks of the river merge and swimming is refreshing, delightful & part of the experience! There are many nature walks, temple visits and village visits that can be arranged from Nirarta. Massage & reflexology are also available.
