BALI SOUL RETREAT

ARE YOU READY TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND BRAVE THE JOURNEY TO A VIBRANT AND FULFILLED LIFE?

If you’re feeling lost and unfulfilled and you’re ready to get more out of life, join me for a week long journey that will deepen your connection and change the way you show up for yourself in profound ways. 

 

Are you stuck in a cycle of over-doing, over-giving and under-living?

Are you at a crossroads in life and wondering what’s next?

Are you ready for more joy, more fun, more adventure, and more moments that take your breath away?

Are you ready for a change? 

If you’re ready to say a resounding YES to yourself, join me on a magical and rejuvenating 7 day journey to Bali, the island of the Gods. Here, amidst pristine rice fields, ancient temples and an abundance of natural wonders, you’re invited to let go of the responsibility and obligations, to surrender to your own inner hearts calling and rediscover the pure joy that comes with total freedom, adventure and authentic self expression. 

It’s time to love fiercely, live bravely, connect deeply so you can grow freely.   

22 – 28 September 2024 

Ubud, Bali 

You lead a busy life and the mental load you’re carrying is exhausting.

You feel trapped by routine and responsibility and you’re longing to break free so you can rediscover your own needs, passions and desires. 

You want to show up as the best version of yourself but you’re struggling to navigate the identity shift and inner split of being a woman in the modern world. Amidst juggling various roles, you feel as though you’ve lost sight of your own self. 

You wake on your last morning in Bali and the sun is just beginning to rise, casting a pink glow over the jungle landscape.

The air is fresh and warm, filled with the sound of chirping birds. You now feel completely in tune with these peaceful surroundings.

You now remember who you were before the fatigue, stress and constant worry set in. You have rediscovered your sense of adventure, you remember when life was fun, and you have reconnected to everything that is important in life. 

Here, in the most inspiring and supportive space imaginable, you have expanded your awareness of yourself and reconnected with your own needs, passions, dreams and desires. You have let go of everything that is no longer serving you, knowing you’re returning home feeling lighter, with a fresh new perspective, ready to walk boldly into your next season of life.

 

Has life become a problem to be solved rather than an adventure to be lived?

You’re craving more joy, more fun and more love, but life feels very mundane and boring and you don’t know what lights you up anymore.

You want to feel more connected to yourself and those around you, and you want to stop worrying so you can feel more fulfilled, calm and present.

It’s time to drop the heavy load you’ve been carrying, slow down long enough to hear the gentle whispers of your heart so you can step back into your life feeling happier, calmer, having regained your vibrancy and joy for life.

I felt like I was going through life on a hampster wheel and I didn’t know how to get off. And I’d lost a piece of me, even the piece of me that knew how to have fun. Going to Bali on my own for 7 days was the most amazing gift I could have given myself. My life is forever changed. I have never felt more relaxed physically, emotionally, mentally. I’ve had time to focus on me and who I want to be, what I want more of in my life to make me happy. If you are in a place where you’re feeling tired, stuck, overwhelmed, unhappy,  like you want to get more out of life but you don’t know how. I would highly recommend this retreat. This has honestly been the best thing I could have ever given myself. I’m so grateful I decided to put me first and for the amazing experience I had with Hart and Soul Retreat. 

Anna

A woman is not stagnant, she does not stay the same, holding onto the same values and ideas of what makes her happy.

You are allowed to outgrow yourself.

The purpose of your journey through life is to face life’s transitions and challenges with the inner knowing that these experiences are here to help you grow and evolve beyond what you thought was possible.

This is your opportunity to open yourself up to learning and growing, and in the process you’re also exercising your faith to believe for greater things.

This journey to Bali isn’t a mere pause button or a tick off your bucket list. This is a journey of self-love, a time to nurture your body, soothe your mind, and feed your soul.

This is an opportunity for a spiritual re-birth.  An invitation to find yourself again, to gather all the parts of yourself that may have been left behind over the years and come back to a place of wholeness. With the mystical Mama Bali as your sanctuary and your playground, you can step out of your comfort zone, reconnect with yourself and surrender to an inner peace and knowing that your current self may not have felt in a long time.

Whether you’re coming to Bali to find yourself or to let something go, to birth something new or to transform, you will find it here. 

THE LOCATION 

Imagine arriving at a tranquil oasis, a serene space of swaying palm trees and a jungle outlook.

This is Villa Gaia, nestled in the heart of Ubud’s beautiful terraced rice fields. The grand entrance opens up to marble and teak wood with semi open spaces which blend seamlessly with the surrounding nature, creating a space that encourages introspection and relaxation.

A fresh water pool, soft hot tub jacuzzi, infrared sauna, in-house spa and a dining area with a magnificent vista that is quintessential Bali. 

There are 10 dedicated villa staff to ensure your every need is met. You are greeted each day with smiling faces and warm greetings, who quickly become family after your first shared exchange. You will feel loved and cared for every day of your retreat. 

You’ll experience the intoxicating magic of Balinese culture, and enjoy the deepest, most peaceful slumber of your life.

All this awaits you, and so much more.

THE FOOD

Each day you will enjoy soul nourishing meals that are as delicious as they are nutritious. Prepared with love by local chefs, each dish is a celebration of Bali’s rich culinary heritage. Fresh tropical fruits, organic vegetables, and locally sourced proteins come together in a symphony of flavors that nourish the body and delight the senses.

You’ll have the chance to delight in iconic Balinese flavours with favourites such as Nasi Goreng and Gado Gado, alongside beautiful soups, fresh curries, noodles, abundant salads and fresh juices. 

All meals are designed to be good for your body, soul and of course, your tastebuds! 

A DAY ON RETREAT 

Each day of your retreat begins with a sacred ritual, a practice that allows you to connect with the divine energy that permeates Bali. These rituals, steeped in tradition and performed with reverence, provide a grounding start to each day. They are an opportunity to cleanse your soul, set your intentions, and align yourself with the natural rhythms of the land.

As the day unfolds, you’re invited to participate in healing sessions designed to restore balance, gain insights and promote wellbeing. These sessions draw on traditional Balinese healing practices, harnessing the power of nature and the wisdom of generations. Whether it’s a massage using locally sourced herbs and oils, a guided meditation session amidst the tranquil Balinese landscape, a cleansing ritual at the water temple or a visit to a traditional Balinese healer, each experience is designed to nurture your body, mind, and spirit.

 

Each day you will also venture out with our personal guide and driver, giving you the chance to explore the real and authentic side of Bali, and help you rediscover your adventurous spirit and reignite your passion and joy for life.

In the afternoon, head to the on-site spa, your haven for relaxation. Here, you can surrender to the blissful pleasure of traditional Balinese spa treatments with each treatment designed to make you feel pampered and cherished.

You will leave your week in Bali with a radiant glow emanating from within, a testament to the transformative journey you’ve undertaken. Your body will feel lighter, your mind clearer, and your spirit uplifted. 

And you will feel ever so grateful you said yes to all of it.

 I came on retreat to Bali because I was feeling burnt out, I was sleeping about 4 hours a night, I felt exhausted, felt disconnected from myself and felt like I was living my life on autopilot and this retreat was the circuit breaker I needed to get my life back on track. The biggest thing I got out of this retreat was the ability to come back to myself and my purpose and I got so much clarity on where I want to go. Another thing I got out of it was rest. I got so much deep, restful sleep and deep relaxation from the massages at the spa and the meditations and daily rituals we did everyday . My nervous system has been completely reset, and I feel my heart rate has slowed and my breathing has returned to normal and I just feel like I am back to myself again. This week has been the best investment I could have made in myself. And I know the experience I had isn’t just going to benefit me, but everyone around me as well.

“Life is a choice and abundance comes from knowing yourself and loving yourself deeply in order to make choices that are in alignment with what’s important. When we take care of ourselves, it becomes that much easier to navigate life with grace, ease and flow. When we can connect to our true essence, inner wisdom and power, this is where we discover true fulfilment, love and trust for our journey though life. ” ~ Katrina Hart

Have a few questions before you say yes?

Check out our FAQ’s below or get in touch with me personally, I’d love to hear from you.

There are few things in life that are more transformational, nourishing, memorable and deeply satisfying on a soul level, than a retreat.

Taking a week out for yourself, not having to lift a finger, following your heart-pulls and inner butterflies is life-changing in and of itself.

This retreat is a reminder, a reminder of how good you are designed to really feel. A reminder of how much blissful joy exists for you outside of your daily grind. A reminder of all you are capable of, all you are worthy of and all you are destined for in this one precious lifetime. 

Don’t waste another day, month or year to say yes to yourself and to your own needs and dreams. This is your permission to reconnect with the very best version of yourself and courageously step into new ways of living that are more aligned with your truth and your soul. 

So come, immerse yourself in the magic of Bali, and let this be your sanctuary for soulful rejuvenation.

Sometimes a retreat doesn’t just change your life.

It saves it. 

YOUR HOST

Hi, my name is Katrina, I’m the founder of Hart and Soul Retreat, a mindfulness meditation teacher, accredited Matrescence facilitator,  fierce love advocate, a health and life coach and lover of sunsets and long walks on the beach. I am incredibly passionate about ensuring that every woman feels seen, valued, supported and celebrated on their journey through life.

My own life journey has not been an easy one. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, at a time we were hoping to start a family, and again in 2021. In 2022 I lost my husband unexpectedly and I suddenly found myself as a solo parent to my two young children. 

From these experiences I know first hand the importance of looking after yourself – especially through life’s challenges – and that it is possible to find joy and happiness, regardless of what life throws at you.  

My mission is simple – to help women reconnect to themselves so they feel empowered to live life with ease, abundance, joy and fulfilment.  

I feel deeply honoured to hold space for women on retreat and I offer a pertinent reminder of the benefits of slowing down and finding stillness in a very busy and distracted world.  

I wholeheartedly believe that mindfulness and self-love is the secret sauce to living life with more vitality, ease and abundance and I am incredibly grateful that I can share my own wisdom, insights and life experiences to support women on their own journey through life.

WHAT WOMEN HAVE SAID ABOUT THEIR RETREAT EXPERIENCE

TESTIMONIALS

Katrina has an absolute gift at making everyone feel included, connected, validated, and heard. Her guided meditations are life changing and thought provoking, and the space she holds feels so warm, welcoming and safe. I wouldn’t want to go on retreat with anyone else. 

– Anna

Before going to Bali I was sleeping about 4 hour a night. I felt exhausted and disconnected from any kind of purpose and I needed a circuit breaker. The biggest thing I got out of this retreat was the ability to come back to myself. I also got rest. Deep, deep rest and relaxation from the massages at the spa, the meditations that we did, visiting the healer, visiting the temples. My nervous system has been completely reset, my heart rate has slowed down,  my breathing has returned to normal and I feel like I have returned back to myself. 

– Emma

So many insights and aha moments, I am leaving Bali with more clarity around what I need, what I want to change and what I want for myself. 
– Carmen

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Katrina for creating this empowering space for us. I got more from this week then I could have imagined and I feel so fortunate that I was able to be a part of this week long journey with other incredible women. 
– Kevena

I was exhausted and needed a break from life to recentre and find me again. No words to describe the magic and reconnection with myself after a week. The healer session, water temple, beach day, all the experiences were amazing!

– Sarah
