About this trip

Hey Sweet Friends & Music Lovers!


During our 8-DAY ADVENTURE we will explore natural beauty and the transformative power of lovingkindness and feel how the rich, Balinese culture integrates these into all aspects of life. We will take time to experience the gentle people, foods, beaches and ceremonies that make up the most unique aspects of Bali known as the “Island of Love.” We will enjoy traditional Balinese meals and dance performances, hike through the countryside, sing medicine songs and practice yoga together, while immersing ourselves in the warm sunshine.


Here you will find flowers and smiles for miles and miles, a Namaste throughout the day. The wafting of sweet incense following your every movement. And our Alchemy Family holding space for your personal evolution, healing and joy.


Our home for the week is a luxury, boutique hotel set amongst rice fields on the outskirts of Ubud —the cultural and arts epicenter of the island. With spacious, elegant rooms (and private bathrooms), a large saline pool, perfectly manicured gardens, a top-notch spa, and rice field paths to trek, this will serve as the perfect place to be as close to the action as you like, but still remain in the tranquility of nature. There are free shuttles into town all day, so you are never far from the action. Or, opt to rent a motor and scoot around to your heart’s content! Whether it’s cycling, surfing, white water rafting, swimming, riding a scooter, visiting elephants and monkeys, taking a cooking class, or just chilling on at the pool, you will have the choice to do as much—or as little as you desire.


The week will include daily meditation, pranayama, yoga and other fun adventures. Everything is optional. It’s your vacation. Your trip design has been lovingly created especially for you, based on years of experience. We share this openly.


Your hosts are Silvia Mordini, Founder of Alchemy Tours and Reinier Voordwinde, Founder of Drishti Journeys.
