Our guide for the retreat is I Wayan Budiasa. With a deep understanding of his culture and the healing methods of his Island, “Budi” has assisted in the writing of such books as “Bali Sekala & Niskala; Essays on Religion, Ritual and Art” by Fred B Eiseman Jr and “Balians: Traditional Healers of Bali” by Bradford Keeney, along with other books on the flora and fauna of Bali. Budi’s light-hearted humour reflects the softness of the people of Bali.
