Bali Meditation Courses & Centers
You can never discard too many bad ideas
Being a ritualistic Hindu culture, meditation plays a large role in the daily
life of the Balinese. Meditation comes naturally for the Balinese because from
an early age, children are brought to temple ceremonies where they learn to
meditate during prayer, sitting below the village priest as he chants mantra
and rings his holy bell. Each morning, Balinese villagers perform the household
ritual of giving offerings to god. In this ritual they lay down burning incense
and woven banana leaf and flower offerings, or cenang, throughout the home
& workspace while blessing them in a silent meditation. The generations of
meditating people have created a true in-bred serenity for most Balinese. The
Balinese are living proof that meditation can create balance and clarity in
On Balispirit, we include a list of Indonesian Meditation Centers, both Hindu
and Buddhist, so that you, too, can enjoy the benefits of this incredible
practice when you visit Indonesia.

Tibetan Bells Sound Meditation
– with Arun at
The Yoga Barn©
8-9:00pm Every Thursday -
Everyone is very welcome.
I was born in Rome, Italy. From a young age, I traveled globally by myself for
personal research, settling in many places like LA, Paris, London, Prague,
Bangkok, Tokyo & Sydney. Aboriginal Australia is where I began studies in
Music therapy by learning how to play the Didgeridoo with the Meditation of
Circular Breathing. This, combined with my studies in Pranic Healing, led me to
create a Music Therapy Healing Massage with the Didgeridoo, sound of Mother
Earth. I kept traveling in India, Nepal and Tibet where I stayed long time in
Pune, at the Osho Multiversity for Meditation.
India is where I became Sannyasan and took the name of Swami Bodhi Arun. It was
there where I fell in Love with Tibetan Bells and their Magical Healing Sound.
The Vibration and Sound of the bells can transport anyone in meditation with
the benefit of Energy Balance. With this, I created a Meditation with Tibetan
Bells Sound Healing Massage.
I've been treating individuals with the Sound Massage & have been
conducting group Sound Meditation & Yoga Classes with the Healing Sound of
the Tibetan Bells and I have always had unbelievable results.
