Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

Take part in a combination program of spiritual healing and spiritual cleansing at Tirta Empul temple. This spiritual journey begins at your hotel in the morning, where you will be picked up and transferred to the temple to meet one of the best Balinese Shamans from Puri Negari. Healing by Balinese Shaman combines Yagna, Yatra, and Mantra healing practices. Yagna healing is performed to remove negative factors in your life and to help you find peace and happiness. Mantra healing, performed by reciting mantras, clears lower vibrations from your system and elevates your energy. A mantra is a precise combination of sacred sounds forming a nucleus of spiritual energy that attracts high spiritual vibrations, leading to spiritual awakening and empowerment. Yatra healing is designed to remove afflictions that might be preventing you from obtaining a particular result. This can involve removing blockages in your career and bad intentions of your enemies, protecting you from negative forces, and aura healing and chakra balancing. This overall process is known as melukat by the locals and is carried out to spiritually purify the mind and soul. It can be done at any place considered holy by the Balinese, although the Tirta Empul (or Holy Spring Temple) is considered the most holy site for this cleansing. You can also enjoy an optional Luwak coffee tasting or a traditional massage.

I took this tour together with my sister and guide Cok. Everything was perfect, he was super helpful and explained us in detail about the local culture and provided very interesting details about history and religion as we visited the various places. Along the way he also allowed us to stop so that we could learn about local activities such as metal forging or coffee production in the coffee plantations. Along the way he took wonderful photos for us to allow us to have unforgettable memories of this wonderful experience. We could not have hoped for a better guide! Thank you Cok!

We just got back from a great day tour with Made sucita! He adapted our journey to suit our needs-and even gave my son a device to watch whilst sitting in crazy traffic jams! In the temple, he talked us through everything that was happening and everything g we needed to do. Really great experience!
