Today we celebrate the International Day of Tolerance. Tolerance is a fundamental principle of life in society. When enacted, it ensures the survival and celebration of mixed communities in all reaches of the globe.
What kind of activities will I do during my Panchakarma? You may participate in cooking demonstrations, listen to Ayurvedic lectures, attend yoga and meditation sessions, go for a purification ritual at one of Bali's beautiful water temples, take a walk in the beautiful rice fields all around us, learn how to make your own body scrub and herbal teas, join a herbal walk, soak in the heated pool...all of these activities are, of course, optional.
What do the 13 fountains in Tirta Empul temple represent? This is one of Bali's most sacred water temples, located in Tampak Siring. It includes the ancient remains of the original temple with water issuing from Batur spring. Facing to the west there are 5 fountains dedicated to increase our Kundalini energy. Facing south, there are a total of 26 fountains. The first 13 of these fountains are dedicated to cleansing and the next 8 fountains in the middle are dedicated specifically to purify us from 'Hujat' or 'Sumpah Cor' (dirty supernatural matter). The third section and the last bath contains the 5 Pancaka Tirta fountains.
Our treatment center is staffed with a loving and caring team of professional therapists, ensuring every guest a memorable healing experience. Oneworld Ayurveda therapists were trained for a solid six months before we opened our doors to learn the Ayurvedic treatment skills—they are quite different from those of a regular spa therapist!
What kind of yoga do we do in Oneworld Ayurveda? Yoga and meditation, bringing together the body and the mind, are a perfect complement to a Panchakarma. The yoga we offer is based on Hatha yoga and includes pranayama (breathing exercises). Ayurveda advocates a softer version of yoga during Panchakarma. It is ideal for reducing physical and mental stress as well as quieting the mind.
How do you feel after having completed a 10 day Panchakarma? And what did it feel like it during the process? One of our guests, Séverine, shares her experience with us.
Immerse yourself in our wonderful world of healing plants and spend time in our permaculture gardens. We have several gardens in our Panchakarma centre for you to observe, touch, smell and taste! Our head gardener Dharma is happy to answer your questions as are the doctors.
We offer 35 Ayurvedic treatments that are highly individualized based on the needs of the individual guest, depending on their Ayurvedic constitutional type, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and many other factors. The treatment process generally starts—after the in-depth initial consultation—with an oleation or Abhyanga massage.
Happy Diwali. May the beauty of Diwali fill your home with happiness, and may the coming year provide you with everything that brings you joy!
