We love to develop new abilities and accomplish more, while growing as a person. Unfortunately, we often achieve less than we can – unsure of our path, or unable to take it or give it our all.

On this Journey, guided by our own living Compass, we set out on an adventure to transcend our usual limits and discover fresh inspiration and energy, as we connect with the creative well-springs of deep transformation within us.

Drawing on the natural centres of power in Bali, we will dare to Dream, to receive Gifts from the great Source within and without us, to face our Shadows, and return renewed and enriched to our place of origin.

Our Approach

Our path is inspired by a unique synthesis of Western and Eastern approaches to creative development, drawing extensively on the holistic traditional life-wisdom of Bali and Balinese Tantra.

We use a mix of creative expression, movement, meditation, personal reflection and sharing in small groups and plenary sessions, to open to our deeper being and bring more of it into the world.

We draw inspiration from Balinese traditional philosophy and spiritual practice, meeting powerful healers, and places of power and beauty that the Balinese themselves use as sources of renewal.

We are sensitive to the unfolding relationship each person has to him or her self and to each other, and to the unfolding of the group field that emerges on our journey.

In this way, we inevitably face and transcend life-patterns that have been holding us back, as we deepen our connection with each other, with nature, and with the spirit of life itself

Our primary base, the Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness, with its wonderful views and energy, really supports our process.

'I can truly say that the seminar was everything I had unknowingly wished for. I was challenged in ways that made me sit up and pay attention, and explore myself to depths I had not thought possible. The use of a wide range of different and unusual modes of expression such as free movement, drawing and free writing gave me the freedom to explore my emotions, and connect with myself in ways I had not previously known how. It helped open up restrictions formed by my preconceptions of what expression should be, and what sort of results I could expect.

The place itself is stunning; I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect setting for this course. The isolation and natural beauty allowed me peace to not only connect with myself, but feel totally at one with the nature around me. In addition, the incorporation of Balinese traditions – such as a visit to a local healer and a cleansing ritual at a sacred Balinese temple – was very special experience. The opportunity to integrate my own quest for self awareness within the Balinese culture in such a beautiful and unique way, made the experience all the more poignant.

The seminar has not given me answers, but has showed me the path towards asking the right questions. I feel more grounded, and happy with the knowledge that I have the strength and courage within myself to face new challenges and changes in my life, without having to look for that strength elsewhere.

I feel blessed to have had this opportunity to connect with myself within such a wonderfully warm and beautiful place.

Thank you, Peter.'

'I have always loved to travel to see new places but the most fascinating and surprising trip is the one I did inside myself in Bali. The Unfolding retreat has been a disclosure of myself to myself. This experience is the best present any person can give themself, it opens doors you were not even seeing before. It is difficult to describe, because it is not something you can touch but for sure you feel and see and smell it. '

– Daniela Pasero, Italy

'Ho sempre amato viaggiare, ma solo a Bali, con Peter sono riuscita ad affrontare il vero viaggio, quello che mi ha portato a conoscere chi sono, cosa voglio, dove voglio andare......
Sono riuscita per la prima volta ad abbandonarmi alla parte inconscia di me e lasciare che mi parlasse senza limitazioni dettate dalla ragione. La sensazione è quella di essere finalmente a casa. E’ stata la scoperta di infinite possibilità. Dopo Bali la mia vita è cambiata radicalmente pur essendo io rimasta la stessa, la differenza è che ho iniziato ad amare ed accettare tutte le parti di me. Oggi posso dire di sentirmi completa.'
