Full Moon

Purnama or full moon is a special day for the Balinese. On this day, extra offerings are made to be placed on the ground at the entrance and around the family compound.

The founders and directors of the Learning Love Institute, Krishnananda and Amana offer a holiday intensive in Bali once a year over New Years, called “Learning Love in Paradise”.

“Learning Love in Paradise” is an opportunity to explore the Learning Love Work in a relaxed tropical setting combined with group adventures. The work focuses on learning how to develop self-love and how to be in a deep intimate and committed relationship. This seminar is an opportunity to have a holiday combined with a deep experience of inner work.

It is open both to individuals and couples and those who have worked with us before or who are new to the work.

This is an eleven-day workshop in a beautiful meditation resort center directly on the ocean on the North side of the magical island of Bali.

During these days, we will be exploring love, relating, and meditation in a relaxed and gentle way.

We will also be taking excursions like walking to a 50 m waterfall, visit and meditate in a Buddhist temple overlooking the island and taking an early morning boat ride to watch the sunrise and if we are lucky the wild dolphins.

The resort has a spa which offers massages and many kinds of beauty treatments at very reasonable prices.

Because of the length of the seminar and the lovely setting, it is a joy for us to offer this deep, intimate, and relaxed experience.

Space is limited because of room availability so it is good to book early. It is recommended to arrive a few days in advance to relax and adjust to the change of environment.

The quality of meditation and witnessing is a foundation for this work, a theme that we integrate into the seminar. We explore what it means for each of us to relax and we do specific meditations and guided meditations to strengthen our quality of watchfulness and acceptance.

Galungan, This is a major holiday lasting 10 days, during which the gods and ancestors descend to earth, and Good (Dharma) triumphs over Evil (Adharma). Galungan features sacred temple dances, and ‘penjor’, tall bamboo poles splendidly decorated with woven young coconut leaves, fruit and flowers, beside every house entrance. Ceremonies are held throughout the island.

Coconut Spice Yoga is hosting a 7-day, 6-night yoga retreat in Bali in May, allowing you the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice in paradise amongst palm trees.

Give yourself the luxury of escaping the busyness of day to day life and experience the healing energy of Bali and its culture on the untouched north of Bali at Gaia Oasis.

You will feel rejuvenated as you sleep next to the ocean in hand-built bungalows, eat organic nourishing from Gaia’s garden, truly connecting with the beauty of nature.

Take time out to go within and connect to your true purpose and meet other beautiful yogis.

You will learn new meditation and breathing techniques to go deeper within. Yoga & meditation classes cater to all levels. There will be some silent periods to allow for a deeper inquiry.

I will also run workshops and allow for additional one-on-one time to answer any questions or to help with any current physical, mental and emotional issues that may arise.
