The Immersion is an experience of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual transformation. The challenges of living in a community and sharing close quarters with others can trigger feelings of homesickness and minor illnesses such as colds, coughs, etc. Please bring the appropriate personal medications and supplements to help keep you healthy and happy in this environment. This includes but is not limited to digestive aids (such as Bean-o, probiotics, or charcoal), sleep aids and something for sore muscles. You will be sitting on the floor or the ground for the entire residential program. Mats and meditation cushions are available, but you may want to bring your own yoga mat, back jack or sheepskin.
Immersion BaliSome people experience emotional highs and lows during the residential program. This is normal and you are encouraged to allow yourself to go through the experience and use your free time for processing your experience in a way that suits you. Take time to journal, draw, walk, or find a quiet place to sit and reflect. If you process better by talking, you will have no trouble finding a friendly ear. You are always welcome to grab a staff member and share anything you may be going through.
If you currently smoke, drink, or eat meat, you are expected to transition out of these habits before you arrive. These habits are against Ashram policy and you will be expected to strictly refrain from them for the duration of the residential program. You will receive an email with tips for transitioning to a vegetarian diet.
We have a basic first-aid kit in the classroom. An emergency hospital is 18 minutes away. Please bring your medical insurance information with you in case of any unforeseen medical emergencies. If you are on medication of any kind, you need to inform the staff before or when you arrive.
