Our Balinese Journey: Relax, Recharge, Reflect
Bali is said to be the island of the gods, that when you touch down in Bali, you can feel its energy–some say it is a spiritual vortex. Bali isn’t just a place to be seen, it is a place to be felt. It is the perfect backdrop to embody the concepts and teachings of world-renowned psychologist Carl Jung. You will experience Bali through a Jungian lens and be immersed in experiential learning through a powerful exploration of the psyche.
This course will be held in Ubud and Umabian–the cultural, artistic, holistic, and spiritual heart of Bali. You will have time for quiet reflection to wander through the jungle, visit the holy sites, and walk through rice paddies as you contemplate the Jungian journey of individuation.
You will be immediately immersed in a soothing Balinese atmosphere and will be welcomed not as tourists, but as family guests. Our lodging will have a warm, familial atmosphere where you will live life as a local with local culture and tradition.
