Interview with Tammie

Q: How do you describe mindfulness in your retreat?

A: Mindfulness is simple, in fact it’s the simplest thing imaginable: being in the present moment, just focusing on one thing at time in a non-judgmental, curious and open manner. So why then do we find it so hard? Learning to quieten your mind can be a challenge for sure, but the benefits are numerous and like anything, it just takes a bit of practice... Continue reading

Mindfulness refers to the practice of remembering to bring attention to present moment in a non-judgmental and open-minded manner. It has been used for thousands of years in spiritual traditions and in the last 40 years practices similar to mindfulness have been used in a number of psychotherapies. In the last 15 years mindfulness practices have become increasingly popular in contemporary psychology. In the literature related to this contemporary use, mindfulness is considered as a meditation practice, a coping skill and a mode of being. Mindfulness can be learnt individually or within group settings and is not limited to any one particular mental, emotional or spiritual approach. During this retreat mindfulness will be explored from a Buddhist, neuroscience and a psychological perspective, making it practical and useful for people who live modern busy lives.

This retreat provides you with the opportunity to find peace in a busy world.

Mindfulness is a form of mental trainings. It is NOT:

  • a religion, although there may be a spiritual element to the practice.
  • about sitting cross-legged on the floor (but you can if you want to), chairs will be provided at every session.
  • about emptying your mind, it’s about tuning in and becoming more aware or “awake” to what is.
  • complicated, nor is it about success or failure. Every persons experience is unique to them and cannot be compared.

How this wellness retreat may benefit you

  1. Quieten the mind and bring awareness to the way you think about life
  2. Explore and deepen your meditation practice
  3. Relax and refresh
  4. Take time out for quiet reflection
  5. Take peaceful time away from usual routine and surroundings
  6. Start to become a human ‘being’, instead of a human ‘doing’
  7. Embark on a journey of self-discovery
  8. Develop ways of introducing mindfulness into your everyday routine
  9. Set your priorities thereby changing or reinforcing your outlook on life
  10. Find a community of like-minded people

This retreat is designed to support busy women to slow down and connect with themselves, in a beautiful location, in a fun and supportive way, whilst in the company of other like-minded women.

This retreat is not for you if...

  1. You have recently gone through a major crisis and are still very emotionally fragile – the whole experience may be too overwhelming so it may be best to wait until you have regained some inner strength (feel free to contact us if you want to discuss this).
  2. You are seeking a therapeutic or spiritual based program, this is a skills development retreat with a focus on engaging with cultural activities and self care as well as mindfulness. This does not mean that you will not experience these benefits we just want you to make sure your expectations match our program outline.
  3. You are expecting to have individual sessions/counselling with the retreat leader, unfortunately time does not allow for this.
  4. Your health and/or mobility prevents you from travelling to a country such as Bali. The footpaths are very uneven and there are many stairs at the retreat centre.
  5. You expect Bali, a developing nation, to have all of the comforts and conveniences of a Western country. (The hotels we stay in are beautiful, comfortable and perfectly suited for a retreat experience but Bali is not a western country so things run differently over there – this needs to be met with acceptance and understanding).

This retreat usually has around 18 participants.


Most of your meals are included and most are served at the resort.

Healthy, organic meals are provided, which are prepared by our well-trained chefs. All dietary requirements are catered for.

Meals are served either in the jungle dining room or in the privacy of your own balcony table.


You will enjoy a 110 min. Mandi Lulur – Floral Bath, a 17th century Javanese royal treatment. A traditional body massage followed by a body scrub with turmeric, sandal wood and rice powder, an exfoliation of yogurt to eliminate toxins, and a fragrant blossom bath. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.

Keeping Your body in Mind
This after dinner session uses body scan meditation to help explore the difference between thinking about sensation and experiencing it. Many of us spend so much time living ‘in our heads’ that we almost forget about the world experienced directly through our senses. The body scan meditation helps to train your mind so you can focus your attention directly on your bodily sensations without judging or analysing what you find. This helps you to see, ever more clearly, when the mind has begun to wander away by itself, so that you gradually learn to ‘taste’ the difference between the ‘thinking mind’ and the ‘sensing mind’. Body scan can also be used to create an experience of deep relaxation. Lovely to do just before bed.

Spa Treatment or free time

17:30 – 18:30 Afternoon workshop

Mindful Movement
Use the practice of mindful walking and being in your body to help the mind to continue the process of re-integrating with the body. You’ll gradually learn that the body is exquisitely sensitive to emerging unsettling feelings when you are becoming too goal focussed – and this allows you to see how tense, angry or unhappy you become when things don’t turn out the way you want. It’s an early warning system of profound power and significance that allows you to head off problems before they gain unstoppable momentum.

18:30 Preparation for day of silence tomorrow and trip to Tirta Empul
19:00 Dinner Movie Night – Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey (Laughfest!

Day 4

Start of day of silence
A day of silence is a wonderful opportunity to quietly look within. When we retreat from the world of our normal everyday lives, the workings of the mind can be more easily seen. Identification with conceptual belief patterns can be released, revealing a Silence and Stillness that is full of love and peace, the Essence of our Being.
During this day we try not to engage in any escapist activities such as reading or listening to music or checking emails or Facebook. You can however draw or write, swim in the pool or have a massage. The purpose of today is to be with yourself, fully.
This day is a gift to you, embrace it with gratitude being open to whatever comes.

Re-Balancing our Lives – Waking up to the Auto-Pilot
Explore the close connection between our daily routines, behaviour and mood. When we are stressed and exhausted we often give up the things that ‘nourish’ us to make time for the more ‘pressing’ and ‘important’ things. Begin to use meditation to help you make skillful choices, so you can do more of the things that nourish you, and limit the downside of the those things that drain and deplete your inner resources. This will help you to enter a virtuous cycle that leads to greater creativity, resilience and the ability to enjoy life spontaneously as it is, rather than how you wish it to be.

Everything on this retreat fitted in well. I thought the content was interesting but what I enjoyed the most was the people, the laughter and the love. The facilitators are skilled girls, gentle, caring, honest and open, compassionate and loving, thank you. I have gained peace, courage, self acceptance, a further love of nature and safety and security within myself...

Gab – 2014

If there is 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...

After hearing about Tammie’s retreats, I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to do something different. I am a Mum with two children who was very much looking for a break. I went to the retreat by myself which was a big step for me. I can’t say enough about how welcomed and involved I felt...

Natarsha - 2013

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.
