BALI BLISS RETREATS

“EVERY WIFE, MOTHER, SISTER SHOULD MAKE THE TIME FOR THEMSELVES TO EXPERIENCE THE REJUVENATION ON OFFER HERE…”

we take our space here in paradise…

I need to wander to “WONDER!”

To leave home to come back to me.

To stop work …. to really start work.

How do I tell you how it is here? How do I explain this deep connection back to

myself?

How do I describe the way the sunlight creeps through the jungle? The spaces between the greenest leaves, the layers of plants.

Reds and greens, browns and golds. The height of the bamboo.

The sky touching palm trees. Reaching their sharp pointed leaves like fingers to the sun.

We grow, they seem to say. We stretch, we take our space here in paradise.

We reach higher than you would expect, overlapping and touching one another in perfect harmony.

Enhancing the light as our palm fingers make lattice patterns. We are one, we are together.

Just like us. This group of women. Connected forever now. In this moment.

Knowing that each one us will carry a little of the other in our woven tapestries of life.

Something inside of us said “Yes!” Something inside of us said “Why not?” and Claire Goad

with a heart larger than seems possible and arms that wrap round each one of us, steps up and says

“Yes”. “I will hold you in this sacred space because I am so full of love, it overspills” and we in return with

shining eyes nod and know we are love too.

THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO ENJOY THIS INCREDIBLE, BOUTIQUE RETREAT…

This is the second year I have been lucky enough to enjoy this incredible, boutique retreat……both of which I have LOVED.

From the moment you see Claire’s bright, smiling face waving to you at the airport the journey begins. Big beautiful smiles, laughter, sunshine, and beauty surround you everywhere you look, whilst the peace, tranquility, and spirituality of the retreat and the beautiful Balinese people you meet, is quite simply, Life Changing.

You feel inspired, restored and renewed by simple spiritual practices and meditation practised every morning before breakfast, it gives the opportunity to remember how to breathe again, how to relax, how to be still and how to quietly listen to yourself.

The women I went on this journey with were just incredible and added to the absolute magic this retreat creates where friendships are formed and happily maintained. The food and service are simply out of this world including world class massages at a price that entices you to have more. The organisation on Claires part is second to none, where there are fantastic adventures visiting temples, drinking cocktails on the beach watching the sun go down, silver service dining amid the romantically lit paddy fields of Sardines, and the fabulous shops of Ubud on offer, yet, still retaining plenty of quiet time to relax in the arms of the beautiful Villa Kantii and its beautiful staff where you can chill out around the glorious pool and outdoor surrounds, where the only sounds you will hear will be those of nature and laughter. Words cannot describe the magic this retreat offers…. including your own special blessing from the priest when you leave. It is a perfect reminder for how life should be lived …. with respect, kindness and ease …. and a whole lot of fun. The Balinese are masters at it, as is Claire.

CLAIRE IS A MASTER AND HAS A DEEP LOVE AND PASSION FOR PEOPLE AND HER GIFT.

I was going through a stressful and emotional time in my life and was in need of healing. Receiving Reiki from Claire brought me emotional release, which enabled me to deal with the deep grief that I was experiencing. Claire is a master and has a deep love and passion for people and her gift.

IF I COULD RATE YOUR BALI BLISS TRIP MORE THAN 5 I WOULD.

If I could rate your Bali Bliss trip more than 5 I would. Your tour more than met my expectations. I felt so at peace at the end of this trip. I enjoyed the mix of culture experiences along with the lovely introduction to morning meditation. Super company – great bunch of ladies and to top it all off – the food/accommodation was exceptional.

CLAIRE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND…

As soon as walk through the gates of Villa Kanti and down the steps through to where your retreat will begin, you know you are on to something special. Claire really goes above and beyond ensuring her guest have a magical time on the Bali Bliss retreat. This is your time for everything about you. Relaxation, contemplation and setting your intentions. The focus is forgetting about what you’ve left behind and enjoying the here and now, being in the moment. Throw in some cultural trips to temples, shopping…..and more shopping and beautiful food to make any foodies mouth water, both in the villa and out and about in some really funky cafes and restaurants, you really do end up pouting your bottom lip when it’s time to leave. Thank you, Claire and Villa Kanti staff for an amazing experience. Until next time.

I ALWAYS COME AWAY FEELING CALM AND GROUNDED, WHICH IS THE MOST WONDERFUL FEELING…

I love my Reiki sessions with Claire! I always come away feeling calm and grounded, which is the most wonderful feeling. I feel completely comfortable and at ease with Claire as she works her invisible magic. I could not settle my mind at the beginning of the first session but after Reiki I felt as if my mind had been emptied. I had a clear headspace and felt full of energy!
