Is this you?


You’re a lifelong explorer, who loves travel, cares about the world, always learning and asking deeper questions.

Yet you feel uneasy, unsure about the future and what you truly want.

 You're longing for devoted time to clear your mind, calm your heart, become truly well and discover your Third Act of living.

You are ready, more than ready, to say yes to a transformational week in sacred intriguing Bali.

You are ready


On arrival, you are captivated as you wander down the lush green path surrounding the sun-washed yoga shala. The quiet gentle rice fields merge into the fading light of an iconic  Ubud sunset. You emerge from yoga, sensing the energy in your body. You slip into the pool before dinner, feel the warmth of the rich tropical air and the cool refreshing water, soaking it all in.


You are in sacred time


As you find your seat in the open air dining space, you gaze over the fields. Another beautiful meal awaits you. The rich spices, aromas, and the loving preparation of Balinese cuisine nourish your body and soul. Meaningful conversations engage your wonder and curiosity. You sense you are reconnecting to who you are.

The Third Act is a lie season of wisdom and vitality
