Start with the foundations of Qigong practice, which is steeped in 5000 years of lifelong health benefits. Qigong can be best described as a mind-body-spirit practice that has the limitless potential to improve one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent.
We will begin by introducing 5 Elements Qigong and its history, practice guidelines, correct stances, the opening and closing forms.
Experience the practice incorporated with essential oils that correspond to each element and organs to enhance the energetic effects and support the natural healing processes of your body. You will be guided through a sensory journey, where you will breathe in the aromas and feel the effects on your body and mind.
We'll be integrating the healing sounds and color that correspond with each movement and element, deepening the healing potential of the practice.

Discover how specific essential oils can balance and support each element, bringing harmony to your body, mind, and spirit. You will learn various essential oils for different health concerns and deepen your understanding of the connection between aromatherapy and TCM.
Learn about the scientific basis for lifestyle medicine and how it can be used to improve overall health and well-being. The goal of the workshop is to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to make sustainable lifestyle changes that will improve your health and quality of life.

This temple is one of Bali's secret gems and not listed in any guidebook. The spring at the temple is considered sacred, for it’s found at a meeting point of two holy rivers. There are 21 holy fountains and waterfalls to cleanse and purify oneself.
After the temple purification, we will enjoy an organic farm to table lunch cooked by a Balinese family, overlooking the garden where the fresh produce from your dishes have been prepared.
An Ancient Sound Healing session guides you into an effortless state of relaxation. The process is as scientific as it is mysterious. It requires nothing but your presence to be fully appreciated, but it must be experienced in order to be understood. The rhythmic frequencies produced by a plethora of Ancient instrumentation during our Sound Healing Sessions, layer into an ocean of vibration for our bodies to feel, heal, relax & release.
This session promises to be a whole lot of fun! Learn how to prepare a TCM-inspired meal that corresponds to your five element personality. Along with your fellow peers you'll create delicious dishes together using fresh, organic ingredients and enjoy savoring your creations over lunch.
Bali is known to be in the "Ring of Fire" and for this reason the retreat destination corresponds to the FIRE Element. Harnessing the power of this element, we will be hiking up an active volcano. This awe-inspiring journey will take you through the rugged terrain and breathtaking landscapes surrounding the volcanic peak. We will also pause to connect through a rejuvenating Qigong practice along the mountain's ridge. The hike is suitable for beginners and all fitness levels.
Together, we will let go of anything that no longer serves us, whether it's limiting beliefs, negative emotions, or past experiences that hold us back. As we release these old patterns, we create space for new growth and transformation. Gather around the warmth of the fire as we reflect on the journey we've taken and set intentions for the future.

The retreat was not like any other. It is a selfless sharing and imparting of knowledge. It is a safe space where lifelong friendships were forged. Stephanie’s sincerity and passion really shows through the program and one could tell that she puts in her genuine thoughts and love for each and everyone of us at the retreat. Thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience.
The retreat was very well thought out and planned. From the gesture of leaving little gift and card daily on our bed, the customising of our names in the materials, the integrating of elements into our daily activities/workshops, I believe anyone could feel the amount of sincerity, heart and soul Stephanie had given to the programme.
The retreat was absolutely amazing, uplifting, eye-opening, peaceful and calm. I met loads of new people. I was really happy as I learned so much about myself, and Stephanie taught us so much. I'm feeling very empowered. I benefitted so much from the retreat and I know my friends would benefit from it too.
A transformative journey that one must embark on at least once in their lifetime. You'll experience a lifestyle that will leave you feeling very full and lighthearted at the same time.
