Your holistic healing journey begins in Ubud, the island’s spiritual and cultural epicenter. Here amidst the serene jungles and regenerative energies of Kumbuh at Gdas Bali, you can embark on a series of handcrafted programs designed by our certified holistic healers to soothe the body, mind and soul.

All programs at Gdas Bali are based on the Balinese Tri Hita Karana concept – a way of life that’s deeply rooted in Hindu traditions. Combined with the island’s rich, natural resources such as plants and herbs will result in a series of all-encompassing alternative healing programs that will rebalance and rejuvenate the physical and emotional body.

gdas bali

Detox with Plant-Based Healing – It’s no secret that the food we consume will affect our bodies, which will, in turn, affect the wellness of our minds and spirit. According to ancient Hindu beliefs, the human body is made up of three layers called Tri Sarira, which encompasses the physical body, the mind and the soul.

Decades of contaminated food, water such as GMOs, MSG, chemicals and colouring will affect the layers of the body. Through their programmes, they will work with you to reverse these effects and send you down the right path to regenerative healing by way of vegan and raw meals. These will eliminate toxins from the system and restore the enzymes needed for optimum gut health – which is connected to the health of the rest of the body.

The programme begins with a Balinese purification ceremony held at Tirta Empul Temple and which includes a private consultation with their wellness expert, daily plant-based nutrition, yoga with meditation, Balinese lifestyle activities and 5-nights accommodation.
