Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

8. 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 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 forming a nucleus of spiritual energy that attracts high spiritual vibrations, leading to spiritual awakening and empowerment. 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. You can also enjoy an optional Luwak coffee tasting or a traditional massage.

What a hike! We got picked up by Agus exactly on the time he said. He was very nice and we talked a bit but as we had a short night he let us just enjoy the drive in the dark. Our guide was Nova. Such a great guy! He let us rest when we needed, was running up and down between us and the 2 other girls making sure everybody is ok on the way up. We got lucky with the weather and saw the sun coming up, even got some cool pics. The breakfast was ok for most people, I’m not fan of banana but honestly you’ll survive that few hours on biscuits too. The hike was tough both up and down, but doable. Make sure to have proper hiking/trail shoes for good grip. And it’s definitely cold, especially after sweating 2 hours. Overall it was a great experience!

What an amazing trip! Got to see so much and still had the whole day to explore Ubud. The trek was super well organized, the hot spring had great views and so nice to soak after the hike. The coffee plantation host was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our driver Mira was fantastic! He was super quick at responding to messages, very friend and kind. Our trekking guide Pande was amazing, so full of energy, funny, and took unreal photos for us. Can’t thank both of these guides enough, they both really made the tour!

I was supposed to be in the group excursion but ended up being on private tour with Edi Strawberry. And I loved it so much! I had a great time and could see places I was always dreaming about. Edi was so patient with me, taking so many picture of me and giving me some information about Bali and Indonesia. It was a long day but full of memorable moments! Thank you ☺️

Beautiful sunrise but quite a difficult hike, worth it all in the end. Tour guide was exceptional.

Great tour with amazing people! I can only recommend it!
