Shakti in San-Skrit is the physical manifestation of power. We believe Bali plays host to such power. Just as we have energy pathways so does the earth. Bali is said to be the seventh chakra of the world. Historically pilgrimed to by the hippie trail in the 60’s. This land has a great age old culture about it. Meditating at any of the earths chakras is said to increase your cosmic connection with the earths energy, unlocking chakras or other energy points in your body on the pathway.
With this in mind…
