MESSAGE FROM THE AMBASSADOR

Our mission is a lifestyle philosophy based on balance, preservation, & restoration. We harmonize opposing viewpoints and integrate universal oneness through love, compassion, and inclusion of all.

- Nikki Baksh

Highlights

***What you THINK about, you BRING about.***

You are completely whole, beautiful, and full of love.

We are made in the image of all encompassment, possessing both Shiva (masculine) and Shakti (feminine) energies within our physical earthly beings. We are going to have a fun filled with of movement on and off the mat, allowing freedom of expression, movement, and raw energy to meet our conscious state. Shakti is known as our raw unawakened ancient energy, and Shiva is our pure consciousness that transforms this energy into action.

Our yoga/meditation and dance focus for this workshop will allow for us to acknowledge, accept, and evoke our god/goddess energies. We will learn how to harness our power to boldly and humbly balance both energies inwardly and outwardly through daily exercises.

'Namaste,' 'I bow to the divine in you.' Yet, we somehow seem to neglect our true divine essence and shy away from our complete embodiment of both masculine and feminine energies. Our entire energetic and physical cosmos embodies the Divine Andrognye. "Ardhanarishvara is one of the 64 manifestations of Parashiva, the aspect of Lord Shiva, who is Absolute, beyond all human comprehension and is hence considered the Nirguna Brahman (the Supreme One, who is beyond attributes)."

Blessings with Shiva/Shakti Energy:

  • Felicity in loving partnerships and married life
  • Raising the Kundalini Energy
  • Transcendental knowledge of universal oneness
  • Ability to harmonize opposing viewpoints or forces

This trip was an absolute dream come true! Bali is unbelievable, and the Hotel Komune exceeded any expectations that I had about our accommodations! Trip Tribe, you did it again! The extra activities that we did, like the sunrise Mt. Batur hike and the purifying water temple were over the top! The yoga facilities were fantastic, just off the beach, or on the jungle. I will be back to Bali AND Hotel Komune for sure!

Overall, our Bali was an extremely positive experience. The resort where we stayed (Hotel Komune), was outstanding. The grounds, meeting places, gym, yoga shalas, restaurants, and recreation areas were excellent. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly, and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The excursions available to the Trip Tribe participants were both plentiful, varied, and well planned. Transportation was coordinated by the hotel and was very reliable. Overall, the Bali experience was excellent!
