Bali: Full-Day Spiritual Cleansing and Shamanic Healing Tour

1. 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 8-hour spiritual journey begins at your hotel at 08:00, where you will be picked up and transferred to the temple to meet healer Cokorada Rai from Puri Negari. Healing by Cokorda Rai 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 that forms a nucleus of spiritual energy attracting high spiritual vibrations, leading to spiritual awakening, empowerment and assistance. 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.

I loved the day. I had an amazing tour guide. He was punctual, respectful and an over joy to be with throughout the day. I had the opportunity to visit two healers - one in the morning and one in the evening, visit fountains where I cleansed myself and then break for lunch. Dwipa - tour guide took me to the best place I have ever had lunch. The view was spectacular. I had lunch on a bridge in a forest. Dwipa (tour guide) let me change my afternoon plan so I could go see a second healer and then visit a beautiful rice field. I even had the opportunity to go on the famous swing in the rice field. All together a fabulous day. Dwipa was the best tour guide I have encountered. I do travel extensively.

We were completely immersed in Balinese culture and spirituality. Karma, our guide, took us to a temple where there was no tourist and showed us all the stages of purification and meditation of the Balinese. The meeting with the Shaman was very interesting and beyond our expectations. This day was perfect. A huge thank you to our guide, Karma, who displayed a big smile throughout the day and shared with us his big knowledge of Balinese culture. He answered all of our questions and made many recommendations to us. He is really the best guide we have ever known. Thanks to Karma and GetYourGuide for this experience!

Wonderful tour with very impressive moments. Our guide Dharma was wonderful and very kind. He explained, translated and made this tour a great day out. Again any time!

Dharma was an exceptional guide, I was on the tour on my own and he made me feel comfortable and was very knowledgeable and professional.
