Embark on an Unforgettable Journey with Water

By learning to engage with her essence, she can become your most steadfast companion throughout life. This transformative journey will forever alter your perception of water, whether you’re quenching your thirst or cleansing your body. Embark on a voyage to Bali, the mystical Island of the Gods, where the ancient practice of Agama Tirtha, the Holy Water religion, thrives. Delve into the tranquil depths of age-old water temples and submerge yourself in sacred springs. This retreat beckons those prepared to embrace breathtaking natural wonders, partake in water rituals, and emerge with a revitalized understanding of water—an understanding that will revolutionize your connection to the essence of life itself!

Unlock the profound wisdom of water! 

Water has the answers! You only need to understand how to work with her, and she becomes your greatest lifelong ally. After this experience, you will never drink a glass of water or take a shower in the same way again. Journey to the ancient land of Bali, the Island of the Gods, where they practice Agama Tirtha, the Holy Water religion, dive deep into the pristine waters of ancient water temples, and immerse yourself in the sacred springs. This retreat is for you if you are ready to enjoy epic nature experiences, as well as water ceremonies and come away feeling empowered with a new water paradigm that will transform your relationship to the living liquid life Source!!

A Retreat to Connect with the Spirit of Water

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by world events, out of touch with your spiritual center, thrown into whirlwinds of fear or doubt when faced with political, environmental, or social tides, disconnected from the Earth amid the frenzy of modern life…

No worries, there is a liquid calm amid the storm. We’ll re-establish a solid inner foundation of peace so that we emanate positive change in the world, from a place of guardianship and stewarding what is most sacred.

If you are intelligent, curious and passionate about the links between health, ecology and spirituality, ready to dive into the places where mysticism and science meet, to uncover the blueprint for greater vitality, and eager to put all of that wisdom into service to make a difference and be of benefit in the world, then this retreat is for you. You may feel like you are missing a key aspect of communion with Source, or perhaps you’re simply not well hydrated, and experiencing the mental and physical suffering that results from a dry body and dry mind. Whether you suffer the effects of disconnection from water physically or spiritually, this retreat is for you.

When we are disconnected from water, we are cut off from our own vitality.

When we reconnect with water, we discover not only greater physical health, but more mental and emotional wellbeing as well. In modern times we are disconnected from ancestral wisdom. But ancients of EVERY culture revered water. Reconnecting with water grounds us into the legacies of our lineages in an empowering activation. And science is revealing that WATER holds the answers on a quantum level to the mysteries behind the secret, the law of attraction, manifestation, and more. So it’s URGENT for anyone who wants to supercharge their prayers AND their body.

At this retreat we delve DEEP into the ancient myths and modern science of water. It completely, radically and irrevocably shifts people’s relationships with the primary element of life. Hours of masterclass study plus deep experiential therapies and water-based bodywork, plus exploring beautiful sacred sites and bodies of water for ritual and ceremonial practice are PROFOUND.

By the end of this retreat, you will feel juicy, hydrated, connected, empowered and activated so that you can LIVE more fully through every water molecule of your aquatic body and make the difference in this world that you came here to make – from a place of deep connection and turned-on aliveness!
