A Contemplative Healing Program
with Gisela Von Keiser Grenkowitz
Bali Mandala
at Bali Mandala Resort
April 15 - 29, 2005
Two weeks of Maitri Space Awareness will be offered at the Bali Mandala on the Island of Bali! Maitri means loving kindness to oneself and others. Space means returning to our natural state of openness and relaxation. Awareness means conscious attention to the present moment.

Maitri Space Awareness is an environmental practice that heightens awareness of sense perceptions as well as our capacity to communicate directly with the true nature of ourselves and our world.

By taking five different yogic postures while wearing their correspondent colored glasses, we explore our personal relationship to the five Buddha Familys, what is ultimately our inherent enlightened style. Offering this practice in the idyllic setting of Bali Mandala naturally invites us to intensify the practice of kindness towards ourselves and others.

Maitri in Paradise will be designed to give us plenty of free time to relax and be, with no agenda.

In that time we can schedule massage, take walks on the beach or watch the dolphins at sunset. Group and individual meeting time will be offered to explore the five Buddha wisdoms as they are experience, one per day. In an open spacious and relaxed atmosphere, we are invited to look deeply into the practice of loving ourselves and offering genuine kindness to others.

Bali Mandala
The "Bali Mandala" is a unique contemplative resort located on the north shore of the Bali Sea featuring tropical views set in a spacious and tranquil atmosphere. Amidst coconut palms, fruit trees and lush tropical gardens are arranged 11 bungalows, each with a different design ranging from intimate octagons to two story villas with veranda.

The program will be held in the "Ganesha Hall", a spacious, octagon shaped temple, and the "Sariswati Balé", an open air Bali style meeting place, both overseeing the sea. Delicious meals are served in the two story open air restaurant with breathtaking ocean views. The staff is well know for preparing traditional and wholesome foods, including any special requests. There is a pool with Watsu depth for aquatic activities and a wellness spa featuring a variety of massages from Aryuvedic to traditional Balinese massage, called "Mandi Lulur".
