Discovering Ubud – Bali’s Cultural & Spiritual Heartbeat

Updated: Jan 10, 2020

Bali is not without its critics; the tourism mecca that makes up the ‘love’ component in the famous ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ remains one of the go-to destinations in all the commercial travel guides.

But far removed from the infamous Kuta and Seminyak is a small town, comprised of 14 villages nestled amongst rice terraces. The natural surrounds like lungs that breath in life; the blend of serenity and cultural vibrancy a yin and yang, offering a perfectly synchronistic heartbeat, keeping the island firmly grounded.

Ubud has a recorded history which dates back to the eighth century, when the Javanese Hindu priest Rsi Marhandya came to Bali from Java, and meditated at the confluence of the two Wos rivers at Campuan. In many ways, the history of Ubud is the very history of Bali itself.

Today, It is a haven for backpackers, cosmic seekers, artists and bohemians and has begun emerging as a hot spot for literati, glitterati, art collectors and connoisseurs. It is a hub for the arts and crafts, a place for the mystics and the pretenders alike.

But make no mistake; there is a very unique spiritual frequency in Ubud, resonating in the breathtaking landscapes, natural surrounds and the people which reside here. This may not be experienced by many that travel here, but it is ripe and it will resonate with those that are silent enough to listen and open enough to tune in.

In October, we return to Ubud, this time to celebrate and breath in life; fully supported by the spiritual abundance and grounding energy Ubud provides.
