About

Everyone was born with an innate ability to heal themselves from the inside out through self-healing. To be able to heal is to be able to live harmoniously.  During your 7 days, and 6 nights with us you will be introduced to the philosophy, systems, and tools that will allow you to begin your self-healing process and gain a greater understanding of how-to live-in balance and harmony with yourself and the environment around you. 

For thousands of years, the Chinese have understood that Qi (energy), is the essential aspect that governs our life.  A lack or imbalance of Qi in the body is the source of illness and disease. Our daily life, our work, and our relationships are all determined by our energy.

Azadi Retreat’s Art of Self Healing Retreat in Bali is designed to improve yourself, physically, mentally, and spiritually.  By gaining an understanding and going deeper into the 5 elements in life from Traditional Chinese Medicine, you will understand cosmic energy and how it influences and manifests within you. Through this understanding, you will be able to balance your body, mind, emotions, and spirit leading to greater happiness and harmony in your life.  

Why you should join?

The Universe in which we live is inherently self-healing as is our physical and emotional body when we learn how.  Self-healing is about learning how to create the ideal healing environment for yourself whether it’s physical, mental, or emotional.  This means learning how best to balance and care for your body, mind, and spirit.  Self-healing puts you at the center of your own well-being with support to guide you.  It honors that we all heal differently in our own way and in our own time. 

Azadi Retreat’s Art of Self Healing Retreat in Bali will teach you how to open to a new way of life and being that acknowledges your feelings, emotions, your authenticity, and your relationship with the Universe around you.  You will gain greater autonomy over your own health and well-being by learning to balance your body, mind, and emotions.  The peace, tranquillity, and natural environment that Azadi Retreat is known for, will allow you to reconnect with nature and find great inner peace. The purpose of this retreat is to improve and balance your physical and mental health. This retreat program has helped many people to reduce their stress levels, overcome addictions, improve sleep disorders, and reduce chronic stress.

MEN’S RETREAT

A New Year’s Journey of Embracing, Healing, and Transformation
7-Days of Brotherhood in Magical Ubud, Bali 
28th December 2024 – 4th January 2025

Embracing Masculine Energy

 Living in your masculine energy involves harnessing qualities such as strength, decisiveness, focus, and assertiveness to navigate life’s challenges with confidence and purpose. Throughout the retreat, we will gain and deepen the tools, practices, and guidance needed to cultivate and embody your masculine essence in a balanced and authentic way.

Through workshops, discussions, and experiential exercises, we explore the various facets of masculine energy (after a brief review of toxic masculinity, and a discussion of the world situation). Learn how to tap into your innate masculine energy to set clear goals, make informed decisions, and tap into your leadership abilities. We also delve into the importance of healthy boundaries, self-discipline, and resilience.

Honoring Your Feminine Energy

Feminine energy is not based on gender but rather characterized by qualities such as receptivity, intuition, and nurturing. We emphasize the importance of embracing and honoring these aspects of yourself, as they are essential for fostering emotional depth, connection, and intimacy in relationships. We will leave with a deep sense of the dance and interplay between masculine & feminine.

Integration and Harmony

By cultivating self-awareness and embracing all aspects of your being, you can create a harmonious synergy that enhances your personal growth, relationships, and overall well-being. Through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine, explore how to navigate the dynamic interplay between masculine and feminine energies, fostering greater authenticity, balance, and fulfillment in your life and – most importantly – your relationships
