Writing From The Body

A four-day intensive to kick start your creativity and align your writing with your soul.

Writing is an act of love. To write well, we need to pay attention and paying attention is one of the purest ways to love.

Over four days we will use meditation, yogic and literary tools to dive deep and create work that matters, while nourishing body, mind and heart.

At the Embracing Health Retreats healing comes from the synergy of the many different aspects of the retreat program. From nourishing the physical body, calming the mind, and accessing the deep places of the soul that need to be heard. Woven into the retreat space, award-winning author Natalie Sprite will take you on a journey in her acclaimed course "Writing From the Body", complementing the work we are doing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

If you have ever been drawn to write - this is your opportunity! For guests who book their retreat place during the months of September & October 2019, Natalie' course, valued at $600.00 and with over 12 hours of dedicated writing instruction, is included as a part of the retreat price.

Secure your place today for a deposit of just $250.00.

The Bali Embracing Health Detox, Healing & Raw Food Retreats are being held in the beautiful town of Ubud, about an hour and a half from Denpasar airport. Ubud is known as the artistic and spiritual heart of Bali, it is away from the busy tourist centres and embodies the charm and simplicity of life in Bali. The people are warm and generous, the scenery is tropical and green, and you can feel the magic in the air. Ubud is very easy to get to; fly direct into Denpasar, Bali and we will organise transport to collect you at the airport, and take you right to the door of our retreat being held at Kori Ubud.

Our resort venue is absolutely stunning! A delightful Balinese boutique resort only minutes from the main street of central Ubud, but set in quiet, lush gardens with everything we could possibly need for a amazing time together. Kori Ubud is a spectacular facility, with beautifully tended gardens, two swimming pools, a spa, sun-decks and lounges, restaurant, yoga area, on-site day spa, conference facilities and an abundance of lovely staff to tend to our every need. Kori Ubud is a little slice of heaven in Bali. Western enough to satisfy our needs, without compromising the feel of being in Bali.

The accommodation at Kori Ubud is of a very high standard. The single villa rooms all have quality appointments and lovely big bathrooms with bathtubs. The Superior rooms are a little older in style, whereas the Deluxe rooms are in a newer section of the resort. All rooms have air-conditioning, private balconies, many rooms have mosquito nets over the bed, they all have a safety deposit box, robes and slippers and daily mineral water provided.

With this nine night retreat, we have found the perfect balance between activities, education, healing, rest and relaxation as well as showcasing beautiful Bali. We start each day with a yoga practice that caters for both beginners and more advanced participants, taken by our experienced and knowledgable yoga practitioner Oksana Sokol. Each day, through lectures and other activities, we learn more about the art of healing, detoxification, food as medicine, and the emotional aspects of life, as we also allow the Bali magic do its wonders, opening us up to new insights and inspirations.

The overall premise of the retreat is for you to have an experience of food as medicine, not just as a concept, but during this retreat you will be living it! For the first six days we will be juice fasting, and each juice will be created using local organic produce, bringing in the medicinal properties of the foods and cleansing the body. After the fast we move into eating organic, raw vegan food, exploring the abundance of raw vegan restaurants in Ubud, incorporating the delightful tropical produce found in Bali for many new taste sensations. You will be surprised at how easy the program is!

In Summary

There is only one price to pay which includes everything you need for the nine night program at this luxury retreat. No add-ons, no surprises. Payment plans are available and there are fantastic discounts for friends coming to the retreat together, and couples sharing a single room.

I would like to invite you to join me on my next Bali Retreat Adventure in March 2020.  Following on from the posts I wrote about my Bali Retreats  (The Beauty of Detox in Bali & Truly, Madly, Healing) I am excited to share the new retreat format with those who would like to take their retreat experience a little deeper.

From my many years of traveling to Bali to run my healing retreats, I have fine-tuned and expanded my program to bring in the very best that Ubud has to offer. Ubud has developed into a central healing mecca – with the most incredible raw food, juices, teas, tonics, and elixirs available – as well as an abundance of world-class practitioners to call on to facilitate certain aspects of the retreat. The development of my own practice has called me to take the retreat to a new level, and I am answering that call with the depth of knowledge that comes from my own experiences, which I have woven into the retreat in a way that will empower you beyond anything you have encountered before.

I’ve put together a very select and detailed program which is nurturing and supportive, and will take you on a journey that is not just healing, but indulgent and inspiring as well. You will have the opportunity to go deeper than in the past, exploring not just the physical aspects of healing, but having the option to explore hidden elements that can affect emotional and spiritual health. With the retreat being held in the most beautiful of locations, you can relax into the experience and enjoy the visual beauty that surrounds you.

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to share this experience with others that I believe will really appreciate the depth of healing we will go to in this retreat experience. I look forward to hearing from you, if you are up for the challenge and ready to rediscover your best self.

With love always,



P.S. In the past I offered a twin-share option, but have found from experience that single rooms are much preferred when detoxing! If you are coming with a friend or are coming as a couple, there are discounts available below.
