Ibu Wayan comes from North Bali and has worked with us for almost seven years. Cooking is a family talent – passed down for generations and it was one of her first hobbies. Working together with the supportive kitchen team, Bu Wayan is very fond of her position as an assistant cook, enabling her to put her passion to test by constantly providing delicious meals for our retreat guests.
Bu Wayan has been married for twelve years and has three children. Sadly, her first-born died from illness in 2004. “In reality, losing a loved one can be extremely traumatic. But as a mother, the lesson from this experience is that regardless of the routines you have going on in your life, get involved in your children’s life, love and gently guide them towards a bright future.”
The 33 year old woman looks up to the Gods, mainly Ganesha for guidance for a peaceful family life and protection from harm. “Ganesha brings peace in my family, for my family. Ganesha’s wisdom makes me live a better life.”
