Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

2. Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

Take part in a combination program of spiritual healing and spiritual cleansing at Tirta Empul temple. This 8-hour spiritual journey begins at your hotel in the morning, where you will be picked up and transferred to the temple to meet one of the best Balinese Shamans from Puri Negari. Healing by Balinese Shaman combines Yagna, Yatra, and Mantra healing practices. Yagna healing is performed to remove negative factors in your life, and to help you find peace and happiness. Mantra healing, performed by reciting mantras, clears lower vibrations from your system and elevates your energy. A mantra is a precise combination of sacred sounds that forms a nucleus of spiritual energy attracting high spiritual vibrations, leading to spiritual awakening, empowerment, and assistance. Yatra healing is designed to remove afflictions that might be preventing you from obtaining a particular result. This can involve removing blockages in your career and bad intentions of your enemies, protecting you from negative forces, and aura healing and chakra balancing. This overall process is known as melukat by the locals and is carried out to spiritually purify the mind and soul. It can be done at any place considered holy by the Balinese, although the Tirta Empul (or Holy Spring Temple) is considered the most holy site for this cleansing.

Our 'Bali Full Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing' tour with our guide, Mr Sandy is truly an amazing experience. It's unlike a typical tour. Sandy suit the best in being a guide for this tour as he is so passionate in the aspect of Bali's spirituality and he is a very spiritual being himself. Sandy is very generous in sharing his knowledge and experiences in spirituality learnings. During the tour, Sandy is patient and he takes great effect in ensuring that his customers obtain the most values out of the tour. What I likes most about Sandy is that unlike other tours, he don't set time limit, Sandy flows with his customer's needs. My wife and I have greatly enjoyed ourselves with Sandy for our full day spiritual cleansing and shamanic healing tour. We have gained wider knowledge, deeper clarity and useful advices and tools from the shamanic teacher as well as from Sandy personally. So if you are going for this tour, having Sandy as your guide is the wisest choice.

I went in this day trip with guide Roka who has incredible knowledge. He was engaging and fun to talk to. I highly recommend this tour. The first stop was visiting a medicine woman who was able to very easily identify my physical pains (neck and lower back) and provide some relief and insight. Then we went to see the elephant cave temple followed by the water temple where I took part in the cleansing ritual. It was such a unique and memorable experience. I thank Roka for being a wonderful guide.

I had an amazing day exploring some of Bali’s most beautiful attractions. The spiritual cleansing was something I’d never done before but I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot. The holy water temple was gorgeous and despite not being able to get into the water because of an injury, my guide helped me make the most of it!

A beautiful day with a great guide. I learned a lot about Bali's history, faith and temples. And was able to learn and take a lot with me for my future path. Thanks for the great day!

This was an amazing experience. Everyone that visits Bali should do this
