It has been a very memorable retreat. Tammie's sessions were amazing, I would love to come back and be part of another of her workshops. She was well organised and very mindful of all participants' needs, both physical and emotional. Yoga sessions were very good. I loved the inclusion of the Balinese ceremony. The staffs have been wonderful, very attentive, making my stay very comfortable and worry free. This includes all staff from the spa to the dining room and the cleaning of the rooms. The venue is awesome, it took my breath away and rooms were very comfortable. I look forward to returning someday soon with some family and friends. Thank you.

A wonderful time to reconnect with yourself and your values and who you want to be. Enjoyed seeing my friends in a different sight away from the varieties of everyday life. My daughter having the time to learn the tools for a better way of living. Danced for the first time in about 20 years, forgot how I loved it.

Dawn, Australia

What a wonderful experience and exceeded my expectations. Tammie is a lovely 'body and intuition' and enchanted an environment of care, love and comfort. I learnt a lot and it reminded me of what's important in my life. I feel like I am going home a stronger and more confident woman. I came to celebrate my birthday with private expectations but I found love and support from a very special group of women. Thank you for sharing this special time with me. Lots of love.

An overall fabulous experience, a good balance between Balinese culture and ceremonies and retreat activities. Gorgeous surroundings with attention to the smallest detail by the staff. Tammy made the retreat experience very special. I felt like Bali welcomed and embraced me.

Judith, Australia

An amazing space with amazing people; a time to discover and nurture the inner you. A safe haven to think and connect whilst being truly supported. Everyone should have the opportunity to share this experience.

Jan, Australia

A profoundly beautiful and transformative experience! The course content was really useful and the delivery was professional, fun, sensitive and well paced. A lovely balance of varied activities. The venue accommodation is extraordinarily beautiful and immaculately presented. The service was faultless: Tammie, Wayan and all the retreat staff took care of our every need at every turn, in the most gracious manner imaginable. I felt completely safe and held and cared for. The food was delicious too, and the yoga, spa treatments and cultural activities were all of the highest quality.

Annie, Australia

Right from the start, on being greeted at the airport, Tammie Day's mindfulness for Women's retreat was just the most amazing and nurturing experience and far surpassed my expectations. A beautiful setting with a variety of workshops, yoga instruction and activities, attentive and friendly staff, fabulous healthy food, relaxing spa treatments, etc. Everything was so well organized that I didn't have to think about a thing other than enjoying the retreat. I would not hesitate in recommending it.

Lorna, Australia

If there were one thing I would describe about the retreat, especially Kumara Sakti - I'd say that it was purely magic - that is what it was to me - magic. It was heaven on earth. It was an adventure of a lifetime and I would love to do this retreat in such a magical majestic place with kind, beautiful staff who would do anything for you - over and over again. The rituals opened a gateway to more love, peace, spirituality, even for a non-believer you can't help but be touched by it all, and how strong the people's faith is in their Balinese Gods. It was, as said earlier, pure magic.

Genevieve, Australia

The Women's Mindfulness Retreat was an extraordinary experience that I would highly recommend. Kumara is a beautiful place that evokes peace and tranquility. The staffs are exceptional in their warmth and professionalism. Tammie Day managed to create an experience that balanced space for reflection and growth with fun and cultural experiences. My time at the Women's Mindfulness Retreat was filled with kindness, generosity, warmth and joy. I leave a different person and well cherish this experience. A special thank you to Tammie and her extraordinary presence.

Naomi, Australia

Tammie is an amazing facilitator with a genuine empathy through the understanding of mindfulness. She also has a fabulous sense of humour and uses it appropriately. All the group sessions were well led + informative with practical tools to take home with you. Staffs here are all beautiful souls and accommodation looking over the jungle and rice fields is unparalleled. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone in need of a break away from the everyday. Special mention to Wayan for his wonderful Yoga sessions and cultural knowledge. Nothing was a problem and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Jenni, Australia

I was so nervous to come here by myself but this has been a profound and incredible experience. Tammie mixes fun with more serious topics. She is inspiring, motivating and supportive. I couldn't have asked for a better location, hotel or group leader. This experience has made me realize a lot about myself and will stay with me forever. I am beyond grateful to have had this opportunity.

Maeva, Dubai

A beautiful location for self nurturing and reconnecting with your inner self. The retreat offers excellent support in a nurturing environment with no judgments. Mindfulness was a well-delivered topic with great practical tips. Tools to take home back into everyday life. Loved the experience! Namaste - forever grateful.

Andrea, Australia

There were women from all different ways of life, with myriad experiences, which made for a rich, lively and varied discussion. I feel that I was able to gain perspective (based on course work and conversation) was embodied of speech tools and strategies to be more perfect and kind to myself. There were great mixtures of reflection, meditation, group work, outdoor exercise and culture experiences. I feel like my flicker has been re-lit and I'm hopeful for making it bright and shiny again. Tammie - you have a true gift, you have definitely found your calling. Thank you for the balance of humour, lightness, compassion, depths of understanding and revealing of your own truth.

Kate, UK

Women's Mindfulness Retreat is a like a shop of tools that can be used in your daily lives to help you and others around you appreciate the life that's been given to you. It is well supported by the spa treatments, amazing moving yoga sessions and incredible activities in Bali which all contribute to the inner self-development and healing experience. Leave your stresses and strains at the doorway of Kumara and enhance in a week of loving kindness from Tammie, Wayan, and the Team. Kumara is a special place, one that I will always remember. Thank you to the team for a truly heart opening experience.

Alison, UK

I came to the retreat with little or no expectations but found the process incredibly profound. From the first orientation, I knew this was the place I needed to be at this time. Tammie's guidance through the group session was meaningful with touch and humour. The freedom to take the things that were meaningful to me was valued. The whole process was effortlessly aided by the staff of the retreat, who were always polite and helpful with a smile on their face. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The ability to be included in ceremonies and rituals which most tourist would never get to witness was humbling and an honour to be part of. A most nourishing, spiritual and wonderful week, which I hope to carry with me forever.

Heather, Australia

I found everything about the retreat meshed together seamlessly to provide the perfect introduction to the practise of mindfulness. From the stunning location, gorgeous accommodation and delicious nourishing food, to the retreat program that allowed for a good balance of time and solo reflection, structure and freedom. The teaching sessions were warm, funny, humorful, and wise. The chance to step out from the habits, routines and noise of our daily lives and allow some room for peacefulness felt incredibly profound. I think we were all surprised by how emotional that experience made us, but Tammie handled it all with grace and equinity. Everything about the retreat was attended thoughtfully with great homour and care. The only aspect that was rough was that it had to end, but I think that we will all take the skill we acquired and use them to transport a bit of that peace back home with us. Thank you Tammie and all ONEWORLD retreats staff.

Ruth, Australia

The overall experience was fantastic with a good mix of theory, practical session and cultural experience. Tammie had thought through the activities well to give us a good experience and she is constantly thinking of ways to change the retreat to make it better. The staffs were extremely accommodating and there was a lot of flexibility whether to join the activities or not. Although it was quite structured there was freedom to do whatever you want. I would highly recommend the retreat.

Ritsoku, Australia

It's beyond my expectations! Well run, fun and meaningful. Meal and accommodation was absolutely wonderful and heavenly and this place is perfect for a retreat. Tammy is simply the perfect facilitator - humorous fun and sensitive to everyone needs. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt at ease from the moment I arrived. I'm forever grateful for this experience. Thank you!

Mary Jane, Australia

I had an amazing retreat. I'm so grateful for Tammie, the team at ONEWORLD and all the beautiful experiences I had. I got the opportunity to rediscover my inner happiness (cliché I know but true), some practical tools for implementing in my daily life and I had a truly amazing insight into the rich culture on this island. The highlight was discovering yoga with a very talented teacher, thanks Wayan. See you next year!

Ragna, Australia

Wayan yoga was exceptional! Everyone enjoyed the gentleness and helpfulness of Wayan's teaching. I particularly enjoyed the spiritual aspect. The rituals and activities were life changing. Thank you so much for introducing me to Balinese culture. Tammie, thank you so much for taking me to the Birthing Centre. Dhamma Brothers was also a splendid surprise. The volcano, Tirta Empul and visiting the Healer were tremendous. I wasn't sure one week would be enough, but I found the retreat immensely restorative and rewarding. All the staffs were helpful and generous. The facilities and location was spot on.

Tamsin, Australia

Tammie, Wayan, and little Wayan were fabulous - always so professional yet relaxed and enjoyable. Our content was delivered in a non-judgmental way so that we could make our own interpretation and develop within ourselves our own needs. Wayan Yoga is fabulous. He is a very compassionate person who I feel lucky to have encountered! And other wayan was always organising activities so well. Completely well organized to every detail especially the temple blessing night at Tirta Empul. I loved this retreat so much and will be back to do another sometime. Highly recommended.

Catherine, Australia

For me this has been a chance to evaluate my life and current situation - a circuit breaker to remind me that I have a lot to be grateful for. I have been dealt some devastating blows - losing my daughters in a car crash but I am who I am because of and in spite of everything. This retreat has exposed me to other women who have their own stories of courage and dreadful episodes of abuse and suffering. Hearing them made me realize that everyone has their stories and life isn't fair but being mindful and gathering tools and strategies to help me cope with my life has been life changing.

Anne, New Zealand

This retreat has been a wonderful experience; a small coming look to myself. Tammie has gently led us with wisdom and gentle humor to re-examine what it is to be happy and to see how we can attain happiness and love for ourselves. I feel prepared and excited to experience whatever comes next in my life. Thanks, Tammie and thanks to the beautiful group of women who shared and who were so enriched during this journey with me.

Leona, Australia

Receptionists, the dining room, the room service, yoga and spa staffs—I can only say they are all at the highest level. The staffs ensured I was comfortable and offered assistance when needed. I had a knee injury on this trip and they ensured I was assisted to my room, to lounge and spa. The quality of service was excellent. I would also like to thank Made whose professional and intuitive massages had helped alleviate my pain and assisted my mobility. It is many months since I have felt pain free—I feel a long with all the other magic that Kumara Sakti offered. I am returning home happier, healthier and more mobile. The highlight for me was a visit to Bumi Sehat and Tirtha Empul. Terima kasih to all team. Once again, I feel I have “come home”… :) Namaste!

Diane, Australia

Kumara Sakti is the perfect place to unwind and focus on wellness and mindfulness. The bucolic setting embodies a spiritual atmosphere and the staffs are exceptionally warm and welcoming. Tammie Day is an amazing facilitator, leading participants through a sound program of self reflection, processing, sharing and grounding us in the meaning of our journey with grace and enough with to keep what could have been to a heavy balanced yet meaningful.  Suksma, peace and love.

Elan, Dubai, UAE

Not having travelled on my own before and being away from my family for the first time, I was certainly worried. However, from the moment I was picked up at the airport and throughout my stay during the women's wellness retreat, I was made to feel welcome, included and totally secure and comfortable. The retreat is a magical place with beautiful people who are ready and willing to do anything to make you happy. Memories of kindness, the beauty and the culture, will stay with me forever. Terima kasih.

Elizabeth, Australia

A very full day starting with a wonderfully rejuvenating yoga class, interspersed lecture, spa treatments and trips out to temple and other places of interest was a very complete experience for my body, mind and soul. What made the retreat very special were the women who shared their soul and hearts and the staffs who were always so kind and helpful. Thank you everyone.

Jayne, Australia

A divine, holistic retreat. A wonderful group. Fantastic staffs. Beautiful surroundings.

Jenni, Australia

A truly amazing experience. Tammie Day touched on so many aspects of wellbeing in such a short timeframe; however the content she provided was powerful and mind changing. The outside excursions were amazing. I will be forever grateful to her for her insight, guidance and wisdom.

Jan, Australia

Thank you, Tammie. Every woman should experience the joy of attending your Women’s Wellness Retreat. The coming together of like-minded women in such a peaceful environment is powerful and releases the spirit of one’s soul and heart.
