Bali 2023

Finally there will be a Press Pause Retreat again in Bali.

Saturday, 5th August till Saturday, 12th August 2023 (7 nights)

Press Pause Retreat is a life-changing experience. Together, we go on a deeply personal journey into our hearts, minds and souls. Centered on the meditative and self-inquiry process of The Work of Byron Katie the retreat offers a unique and extremely powerful combination of Jivamukti yoga, voice work, nutrition and nature. Every experience within the retreat is based upon the authentic experience of Frika from Indonesia and Nadine from Ireland. We are extremely passionate about self-care and this shines through everything. We are offering an opportunity to rest into yourself, to press pause on your life for seven days, rejuvenate and connect deeply with yourself.

After two times offering this retreat in Bali and in 2021 for the first time in Ireland, we are very excited to be bringing the retreat back again to its first home in Bali, Indonesia.

About this retreat

The retreat offers a programme that gives participants an opportunity to reflect deeply on all aspects of how our thinking affects our lives – working on relationships, communication, shame, finances, body and stress. Carefully designed, each day builds on the one before. We exercise our bodies through early morning yoga in nature each morning, followed by working with our voice to unlock our potential and truly enjoy the creative art of singing. Following a nutritious and delicious breakfast, we go on a silent walk in the beautiful nature of Bali. We then gather for the day of identifying and questioning thoughts, tapping into the wisdom and freedom within – we take care of mind and body. There is a lot of laughter and dance and some tears too – all emotions are welcome here. Through questioning our thoughts, self-realisation is possible and participants go home with a feeling of deep peace and joy together with the knowledge of how to support themselves in their lives (click here for testimonies of previous participants).

A detox menu prepared with love by your chef Made, supports us all to thoroughly cleanse our liver and our bodies as we sample a variety of healthy juices, three delicious meals each day and a surprise afternoon treat – plant-based, local organic whole food. As well as eating this delicious food, we learn about the nutritional value of each meal and it’s benefits to our bodies. We enjoy some sessions on health coaching and nutrition and participants take part in a cooking class so that when they go home, they have the knowledge to make changes in their lives.

In between, there are beautiful spaces for silence, for walking, swimming and resting.

Mid-week, we take an outing to a remote and spiritual part of this beautiful island.

We have designed this intimate retreat for a group size between 8 – 14 participants.
