Overview

In today’s busy world we accumulate stress, tension and fatigue in the body which can leave us feeling depleted or overwhelmed by life. Deep rest is the antidote to stress and meditation is a fantastic way of gaining deep rest very quickly. When we rely on sleep alone for our rest quota, unfortunately many of us are not getting enough sleep or enough quality sleep for our bodies to work through the backlog of stress we have accumulated in our lifetime, or to decompress properly from the immense demands and stimulation we face on a daily basis. If you are looking for improved health and wellness, more energy, calm and clarity in your life, this retreat is for you.

Vedic Meditation is a simple transcending technique which absolutely anyone can do. With the use of a Mantra, which is silently repeated in the mind, this technique will help your body and mind gain the deep rest it needs to function optimally. The daily workshops will guide you step by step into a practice that you can easily take back home and incorporate into your busy lifestyle. Suitable for beginners or anyone looking to establish a regular meditation practice, you will acquire the tools to begin meditating confidently on your own and start factoring it into your life as an indispensable life skill.

In addition to learning Vedic meditation, you will enjoy relaxing spa treatments, eat delightful, healthy food and experience beautiful Balinese rituals.

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.


MEDITATION AND YOGA

There will be daily hatha yoga sessions suitable for all levels of practitioners, but the main focus will be on learning Vedic meditation. It is a very simple and effortless mental technique practiced sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed. There is no need to concentrate, focus, or clear your mind of thoughts. There is no need for candles, earphones, books or devices.  Once you have learnt the technique, it can be practiced anywhere, anytime.

Vedic meditation is also known as the ‘householder technique’ due to the ease with which it can be incorporated into busy lives. It is enjoyed by millions of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Absolutely anyone, including children, can learn this simple technique in just a few short sessions.

Vedic meditation is very refreshing for the mind and allows the body to access deep layers of rest and release years of accumulated stress. Twenty minutes of vedic meditation is the rest equivalent of about 3-4 hours of sleep. This is why 20 minutes, twice a day, is all we need to refresh and re-energize.

To practice Vedic meditation you will be given a suitable ‘Mantra’ and shown how to use it.
A Mantra is simply a sound, which is silently repeated in the mind. This sound has a charming quality and the mind is able to settle down in a very natural and spontaneous way.  The mind will move from the active layers of the mind to the more subtle layers of the mind, until it ‘transcends’ or moves beyond thinking and comes to a complete state of rest.

Vedic meditation originates in India and draws from a 5,000 years old body of knowledge known as ‘The Veda’. Modern science is now verifying what the ancient sages of India discovered a very long time ago, that humans need to find a way to de-excite the mind, so the body can rest and restore wellness.


MEALS
