Why luxury Raw Food Retreats are the new black

You know those times in your life when you’re having a really awful day, no week, no fortnight. Yes that was me last week (and the week before!). Then Asia’s leading consultant on Raw Food, author of ‘Living Flavors of Southeast Asia’, Diana von Cranach, invited me to experience her luxury villa resort in North Bali and of course her self titled ‘Rawfully’ good food. If you’re even the tiniest bit hungry, grab a carrot now!

5 tips for facing life’s challenges without losing it

self healing retreats

It’s all well and good with practicing a little meditation, sweating it out on the yoga mat, but how do you cope when life kicks you in the proverbials?

I was brought up to stay strong and carry on, which actually hasn’t always helped when all I wanted to do was have a good cry. I’ve recently been given a more than triple whammy in my life.

It’s all well and good to go to your yoga class, to do your 20 minute meditation and talk about spirituality..but then you must live it. And here’s the rub. Life isn’t a continual series of Shivasana (much as that sounds highly appealing to me right now!).

Spiritual Healing in Bali

Spiritual Bali

Spiritual healing is now well known as an offering in Bali thanks to ‘Eat, Love, Pray’ but what’s it really all about and how can you tell who’s the real deal? That’s where we at Soul Sanctuaries step in. Since we love to be authentic, we join all spiritual healing experiences before suggesting them ourselves.

With that in mind we joined our good Balinese friends Wayan and Nyoman for a spiritual ‘magical mystery tour of Bali’ yesterday. Our remit was to go on a ‘jalan jalan’ (walkabout) together to begin to design some very special sacred day tours in Bali which would slip nicely into any of our Soul Retreats or wellness programs.

Bali Detox: Blog from the Bog Day 6

My oh my, did I crash this morning. Woke up at 4.50 and thought ‘let’s meditate’ then small-fry comes in 2 minutes later. After cuddling him in and then 3 hours of play, I felt like I couldn’t walk. Weird feeling, not heavy in the body, quite the opposite, but like my body totally put the brakes on.
