A great alternative to “schoolies” for my daughter. Personally I needed the debrief after a big year. It really is a fresh start and perfect preparation for 2011

Marian, Australia

My experience at the fresh start cleansing retreat exceeded my expectations. It was a total fresh a start for my mind, body & soul.

Amazing felt like a different person after only a week. The cranosacral therapy was amazing. Have got so many great points to take away to make my life better. Thank you so much.

Zoe, Australia


If you are looking for a non invasive, yet very effective cleanse retreat. Kumara Sakti is the place to do it! The retreat center is an absolute “jewel in the jungle”! Everywhere you look you are treated to lush greenery, flowers and peaceful fountains. My time at Kumara Sakti was a joyful journey within – a great way to detox with other like minded people who understand the value of a cleansing program. Mark Ament is a top match professional who made my retreat one of the most memorable I’ve ever done. His experience and wisdom gave me the encouragement and inspiration to do things & would normally not try his wife Gabrielle was wonderful too – I loved it all!

Susan, USA


Whilst sort of prepared for the herbal detox & radical change in diet, I was pleasantly surprised at the holistic approach to general well being and a nurturing environment in which to explore spiritual & esoteric ideas. Well out of the realm of your typical “Aussie bloke”. Not only do I feel much better physically & mentally, this retreat has helped me to break some addictions, which I could not at home. Thank you Mark, Gabrielle & the team for making me aware of a whole new approach possible for life.

Mick, Australia


In a word: Wow!! Life changing and LIVE LIFE Inspiring!

RESORT

Oneworld’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


MORNING QIGONG

Qigong, which literally means “energy work,” is a 4000 years old system of cultivating health, vitality and longevity. Qigong works with the energy found in our own body and in the surrounding environment to help overcome the imbalances that sap our strength and give rise to disease. In a Qigong class we use breathing exercises, simple body movements and basic meditation techniques to relax the mind, strengthen the muscles and to connect with nature and with our own intuition.


EVENING YOGA

Gentle stretching, strengthening and relaxing exercises are combined in these yoga classes to support your internal organs, to calm your mind and to create space for the new. The classes are suited for beginners as well as for more advanced yogis.


MEALS

During the program you completely eliminate meat, dairy products, starches and processed food while including plenty of fresh juices and smoothies. In addition you enjoy savory soups, a variety of salads, simple main dishes and even a few desserts.
