New Milford (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
Spirit Journeys has just confirmed its fourth gay vacation to Bali. Bali is a place where the veil between the inner and outer worlds is very thin. Come experience the magic for yourself.
Spirit Journeys' yoga and travel adventure through magical Bali will allow participants to experience Balinese culture from the inside out, while staying at some of Bali's wellness resorts & spas. During this two week journey our group will attend traditional Balinese Legong & Kecak dances, participate in traditional temple rituals, attend elaborate cremation ceremonies and shop among the many traditional arts and crafts of Ubud. There will be opportunities to indulge in Bali's extensive international cuisine, deepen yoga and meditation practices, go whitewater rafting, visit ancient sacred sites and native healers.
Join world class yoga instructor, David Moreno, as he returns to Bali for his fourth Spirit Journeys travel tour. A contributor to various yoga publications and a veteran guest yoga teacher throughout Southeast Asia, David's understanding of the culture and of yoga will greatly enhance your overall experience of Bali. David will co-facilitate this adventure with his long time Balinese friend, Cok Ratih. A classically trained Legong dancer, Ratihâ's personal connections will allow us to partake in experiences not always available to most tourists. She will also instruct participants in Hindu ritual and temple protocol.
Bali is of the thousands of islands that make up the Indonesian archipelago, Bali's fame is disproportionate to its size. The island is about 90 miles long and 48 miles wide, but it has more than 3 million people and probably more than 11,000 temples. Bali was colonized by a seafaring people, called the Austronesians, some four or five thousand years ago. Since the seventh century AD, the animistic Balinese have absorbed diverse elements of Mahayana Buddhism, orthodox Shivaism, and Tantrism. Bali is one of the few remaining strongholds of Hinduism in the archipelago, and Balinese religion is a fascinating amalgam of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Malay ancestor cults with magical beliefs and practices.
