“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You created an experience that touched my soul and opened deep levels of creativity and inspiration. Your trip to Bali is a gift that will keep on giving for my entire life.”
–Elya Braden, Santa Monica
Writing and travel are transformative experiences that can open your heart, expand your world, and put you in touch with your own deepest self. This in-depth excursion into the culture of Bali—through the eyes of the Balinese—will use writing as a daily touchstone.
Our trip will bring us into three distinct regions of Bali. We will stay in small, locally owned hotels—away from the tourist scene—so you can fully immerse yourself in this unique, evocative culture. In addition to daily writing classes, our excursions will include rice field hikes, treks in rain forests, snorkeling expeditions among tropical coral gardens, walks through coffee and clove plantations, and lush waterfalls. Each day, our tour guides will give us an insider’s view of Balinese dance, music, art and sacred ceremonies.
At the end of your 15 days in Bali, you will return home deeply connected to yourself, your creative voice, and a remarkable new community of friends. “The opportunity to be surrounded by a community of soulful people is what makes transformation possible. This trip gave me renewal of my body, mind and spirit. Thank you for giving me such a gift of healing and transformation.”
–Marci Drimer, Baltimore
