NOURISH YOUR SPIRIT
CONNECT TO YOUR CREATIVITY
Gift yourself S P A C E away from your day-to-day activities and re-connect to the inner calm that aligns you with your true self and creative spirit. What would it take for you to live in your highest expression of happiness, love and joy?
My intention for the retreat is that you gain a greater capacity to truly rest in the inner sanctuary of your being and recognise all the ways you can bring that into your daily life.
Be in a place of beauty and spirituality that supports a deeper connection to trust in your inner guidance, wisdom, and creativity
This program has been lovingly thought out and designed to clear away the “clutter” of thoughts and re – ALIGN you to the divine presence within and all around you. What would it take for you to fully SHINE?
You’ll re-emerge after the 8 days / 9 nights refreshed and rejuvenated with a deeper connection to yourself and others that invites a more joyful creative way of living.
9 nights accommodation.
Daily Morning Yin-Hatha yoga and Evening Yin Restorative Yoga. The practice is gentle, lots of stretching, and suitable for absolute beginners as well as experienced.
7 days chakra activation (one each day) that includes mantras, mudras, meditations to awaken our seven major energy centers.
Breakfast and Dinner home-cooked Balinese food on site. Oh my goddess, it is so good!
1 x 90-minute Deluxe Spa treatment (organic products) in a beautiful open-air facility surrounded by rice fields. Massage, scrub, flower bath
Learn how to make offerings with the Balinese sisters. Excursion to Water Purification Blessing with High Priestess
Sound Healing – lie down and be immersed in diverse healing vibrational sounds to support the integration of letting go of the old and inviting in the new.
Align & Shine – Sharing in Circle. Connection and support of others assists us all to let go of what no longer serves and helps us invoke what will bring more joy into our lives so we can live the fullest expression of who we are. Guided visualisations, sacred honouring and sharing, creativity art-making exercises (no experience needed), contemplation, journaling, sound, and mindfulness practices to guide you gently inward to your hearts calling and how to translate it into your day to day life.
A day of art and play with Karja – internationally known contemporary Balinese artist. Even if you’ve never painted before and you don’t consider yourself an “artist” or creative person, Karja’s passion, fascinating life story, and skills as a teacher will guide you into his world of creativity and help you open into new unknown territories of creativity within you.
Time-In – You will have plenty of free time to rest, wander, explore on your own.
TESTIMONIALS FROM 2017 RETREAT
My 3rd year running and it continues to nourish my heart and feed my soul. Aesha’s retreat is my annual fix of indulgence in the female spirit.

An incredibly enriching experience with a group of supportive, wonderful women. Aesha’s ability and ‘knowing’ is an absolute blessing.
” ENLIGHTENING • SOUL-DEEP • ENRICHING”Nicole Saunders (Australia), August 2017
Aesha is a skilled and loving retreat guide. This has been my second retreat here in Bali with Aesha, which in itself is testimony to how much I enjoyed the retreat last year. I highly recommend this retreat to all I know with an open heart and open mind who enjoy the company and connection that time with a group of women provides.

“Aesha’s BlossOm Retreat incorporated enough elements to be simulating and interesting, without feeling overwhelmed. There is a gentleness to her personality which translated to the relaxed pace and exploration of concepts we explored. A safe, comfortable circle of women which she held with love and compassion”

“This was my second retreat with Aesha and it was just as magical as the first. The friendship that I have made from the circle of friends has made a great impact on my life and I feel very grateful and blessed that I could the retreat again. I do recommend the retreat…. you owe it to yourself.”
GROUNDINGRose Barnett, 2017 (Australia)
“Reminding myself by going to retreat that when we are in balance and cleansed and nourished, ‘my life organises my life effortlessly’. For me… it is a quiet space to reflect and explore my spirituality by walking in rice fields and being with simplicity of life”
REPLENISHING • COMFORTING • GRATITUDEHeather Devlin, 2017 (Australia)
Aesha, I write this from the heart. I had moments of grace, wonder, angst, sadness, peace and understanding over the 7 days and you watched over my emotional and chakra wobbles with wisdom and grace. I won’t forget. Thank you.
REVEALING, SUPPORTED, KINDNESSShalini Nandan-Singh (Australia), August 2016
Someone who can call in 10 powerful women to share in 7 days of Bali bliss is a gift from the universe. Such a blessing. Thank you.
WHOLESOME, BLESSED, ALLOWINGJacqui Rae Anderson (Australia), August 2016
After a traumatic year in 2015/16 this was a wonderful gift to myself. The retreat was everything I hoped for it to be and more. To spend a week with all these wonderful women, each on their own journey and with their own gifts to share, consolidated my growth and gave my new life a boost into the present/future. Everything has fallen into perfect place.
NOURISHING, RELAXED, EMPOWERINGKate Grosso (Australia), August 2016
Aesha has an amazing gift in creating a safe space, comfortable for reflection and growth. Thank you.
PEACEFUL, ENRICHING, LUSHMichelle McLean (Australia), August 2016
The word Ubud in Balinese means “medicine”. This retreat is medicine for the mind, body and soul. Yoga is practiced twice daily with guided support. The family at Santra Putra Guesthouse provide traditional meals with love and care that are just wonderful. If you are thinking you need time to think and time to practice yoga and meditation you must come along to one of Aesha’s retreats. Highly recommended.
GROWTH, LOVE, SPIRIT MIRACLESAngela Ryan (Australia), August 2016
I have been looking for a retreat for years and have finally found the best. Something I needed to do for myself to find myself again. I feel so blessed and will do this retreat again. You owe it to yourself as I have found. Thank you Aesha.Rose Barnett (Australia), August 2016
“I haven’t done a “retreat” or “workshop” for many years. I am so glad that I was privileged to be present at Aesha’s first Women’s Retreat in Bali.
Before leaving I had been feeling a bit stale. After that special week I was feeling totally refreshed.
Yoga, meditation, creativity, yes we did.
Relax, connect, create, share, yes we did.
The location, the accomodation, the delicious local food provided, the Balinese family, the art class and other activities were all excellent but it was the small group of magical women that added that extra something.
Thank you Aesha for holding us in a space that we could trust and expand in.
I hope that I get to go there again.
Love that frisky feeling.”
“For a real uplift and re-igniting of spirit, I thoroughly recommend the wonderful retreat run by Aesha Kennedy. Her professionalism in organising daily activities, twice daily yoga, meditation, spa treatments and private space to discover the beautiful countryside around Ubud – combine with her compassion to enable all of vary stages of life, to leave feeling focused and centered. This retreat is a great gift to oneself.”Heather (Australia), August 2014, 2015, 2016
