A photographic presentation & lecture with Renowned Traveler & Adventure Photographer Dudley Levenson of Inspired Planet.

Go deeper with your Balinese experience through insider pictures and stories. Dudley Levenson of Inspired Planet shares 33 years of traveling to Bali as a co-creator.
Beyond being a tropical paradise, Bali has become an entangled mystery of art, culture and commerce. In this photo presentation and workshop we go behind the touristy surface to understand what makes this island so unique in the world.  Discover secret temples, hidden unspoiled valleys, and the strange customs of natives.  Based on the slopes of a giant volcano half way between a crater lake and surfer beaches below we explore the evolving lifestyle.
Drop in on preparations for a temple feast, a ritual offering, walk with a procession of dancers and musicians, watch and interpret temple dramas.  We consider the meaning of tradition, offering and sacrifice. This is an opportunity to meet many different Balinese personalities, to think about the effect of our culture upon theirs and delve into both strangeness and beauty.
For 40 years adventure photographer, Dudley Levenson has been curating Inspired Planet, collecting images, artifacts and stories from Asia, Africa and South America. Early studies in anthropology and psychotropic plants at University of Pennsylvania were just a prelude to a lifetime of world-traveling adventures delving into the power of nature, the philosophies of classical civilizations and explorations among tribal cultures. Dudley speaks from the charming crossroads of art history, comparative religion and adventure travel.

The literal meaning of story is "store house".  When a story possesses reminders and meaning needed during challenging times they become sacred stories, places of treasured remembrance.  It is then, when we have lost our way that we can reach back into the "store house" of our ancestors to remember and revision what it is we burn for.
The hero's journey is your journey.  These great mythological tales unlock secrets of our collective inner tapestry.  You already are a hero jumping onto the dragon and learning how to fly.  This sojourn will take you far and wide into the human experience and fire of being. 
Join acclaimed world percussionist, poet and storyteller, John de Kadt, for an enchanting time of rhythm and story that will stir the heart and ignite the imagination.  John plays many instruments from around the globe and shares mythical tales from many cultures.  Come, relax and be carried on the ancient wings of story while rooted in the rhythm of the drum.

On Thursday 9 February, unrelenting heavy rain caused a devastating landslide in Songan Village, North Bali that killed 7 people (including 2 children). So many people have lost their homes, schools and are severely injured. We are shocked and deeply saddened by this tragedy at BaliSpirit, as this is where our BaliRegreen bamboo reforestation outreach program takes places and members of our outreach program have lost their lives.
The Songan village is covered in dirty water and mud, a breeding ground for diseases like Typhoid if medical equipment and services are not supplied fast enough. Songan Village is located high up on the mountains of Mt. Batur and the night can be punishingly cold and many roads to the village are flooded leaving communities completely isolated from food, water and medical supplies.

Join BaliSpirit presenter Hartmut Bez in a special HANGAB Master Series 4 day training at The Yoga Barn and learn to become a HANGAB facilitator. HANGAB is a new dimension in gently stretched Inversion Bodywork & Yoga. In a HANGAB-Flying session a person is slowly, in stages, hoisted upside-down. This gives the body time to adjust to the inversion, preventing any uncomfortable pressure in the head, resulting in a feeling of wellness and floating. The benefits are many: letting go, deep relaxation, regenerating of the discs and joints, alignment, releasing of pain, trauma and emotions, a reset of the body and energy system, activating the power of self-healing. Learn different postures, twists, lifts and energy work on both yourself and others. Register at either The Yoga Barn or online at No experience necessary, all are welcome!
