    cultural and spiritual mecca

    Ubud, Bali

    The world’s friendliest people, delicious food, and a unique and vibrant culture, set in the foothills of one of the world’s most beautiful islands. Add the stunning greenery of the rice paddies and the majestic Mount Agung as a backdrop, and it’s easy to see why Ubud has long been regarded as the spiritual healing center of Bali. In fact the word “ubud” means medicine in native Balinese.

    (re-write) Mars has been in retrograde for months prior to this retreat, during this retreat we will cover the basics of Mars (the planet of force and fight) and dive further into your personal attachment with Mars.

    Mars in Gemini reminds you of the practical magic that is your willpower and ability to make tough calls. Your efforts are too important to risk burning out.

    Answering questions like:
    What is your purpose? What motivates you? How do you recharge for more energy?

    The Workshops


    Each retreat has its own special talisman- a symbol of the knowledge and wisdom aquired and inspired by the astrological theme. You will unleash your creative talent (yes, it is there- we promise) and take part in every part of the creation process. We do not disclose the type of talisman until after the opening ceremony.

    The History of Ananda Ubud Resort

    In the 11th century, the great Hindu priest Markandya Rsi, was on pilgrimage from Ubud to the great Mother Temple of Bersakih, on Mount Agung. On the way he noted some sacred places and one of these was the holy hill where Ananda Ubud Resort now stands, a happy and holy place. Ananda means Bliss in the ancient Sanskrit language.

    In 1972 Wayan Pageh, the owner of Ananda Ubud Resort, built a home here for his wife Nyoman Suryani. He was then an assistant to the King of Ubud, as his ancestors before him. Nyoman was the local midwife. Later they built the family temple and the first guest rooms in the family compound, as friends visiting Ubud needed somewhere to stay.

    From this Ananda Ubud Resort grew over the decades to the family hotel it is now. New bungalows have been added through the gardens and the rice paddies, with halls for Yoga retreats and pools. There are now 3 generations of Wayan's family at Ananda Ubud Resort. His children Wayan ,Dewi and Yani have taken over the day to day running of the hotel, with Wayan and Nyoman looking after their 7 grandchildren.
