The retreat venue takes place at East Bali in the Sidemen area, specifically at Nirarta Centre. Here, nature’s unfolding presence sustains the natural unfolding of your own renewal. Nirarta nestles above the Unda River, beyond the village of Tabola.
The name Nirarta translates to “wealth in that which is not” which points to the knowledge that springs from the simplicity of not knowing and the abundance abiding in the silent source of life itself. The Nirarta Centre aims to provide a bridge between the knowledge and insights of the West and the deep wisdom woven into the colorful fabric of Bali.

During the retreat you will be provided with light detoxing fruit and fruit juice for breakfast. As for lunch and dinner, you can enjoy a buffet-styled vegetarian menu guaranteed to be both healthy and delicious.

During your free time, the retreat offers a variety of different activities including water rafting, snorkeling, and an outing to one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches. The venue also provides a few activities that you can try, like guided walks and Bali tours.
While you can do many of these walks alone, it is advised to take a Balinese guide who can help you discover the magical corners of the Sidemen area off the beaten track.
