What you'll do

It is truly a unique time in the world, we often feel alone, even if we have a family close by.

The guided meditation is easy to do, and no need to have previous experience.

I have created a ritual to help love yourself, family, friends and all in our universe.

We sit together quietly in relaxing position, which we call asana.

I will guide you through pranayama, which is a Hindu breathing technique; this will relax & clear your mind of toxic energy.

I will prepare a offering called “Tumpeng Adanan” twin pyramids made from yellow and white rice.

Additionally, I will prepare “Sampyan Penyenang’ which is made from young coconut leaf and marigold flowers.

This is how we will give gratitude to celebrate love, happiness and health.

We will go through a process of blessing the holy water. This happens as I am praying and chanting mantra.

The main purpose of this experience is to transfer my energy through wellness exercise and Sanskrit mantras by ringing of the bell.

For some this experience can be a spiritual awakening or healing experience.

We will have a discussion on ancient Sanskrit methods and teachings, with time for questions and taking notes.

*If you would like a unborn or newborn baby blessing, birthday blessing, wedding blessing or a soul blessing of a deceased loved one please message me.

I will explain the process and reserve a private experience*

Hello my name is Made (pronounced Mar-day) & I am Balinese.

I have been a host with AirBnB since 2015. I am delighted to be able connect with you at our beautiful Sanctuary, Tri Sandhya Villa in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

I wish to share the magical side of Bali through my knowledge of Balinese Hindu religion and philosophy.

I have taken a great interest in Sanskrit scriptures since I was a young boy. I use to listen to my father and my grandfather chanting mantras. This knowledge has been passed from my ancestors to me.

I will transfer my energy to you, to help you through these difficult times we are facing in the world at the moment.

I have been very close to the priest in the temple, & have been practicing for many years.

It is my pleasure to be able to share my knowledge, in a beautiful calm setting in the heart of Bali.

I bought this as a gift for my mum and she said that it was a beautiful experience and was still talking about it for days afterwards. She described it as inspiring, beautiful and thoroughly enjoyed her conversation with Made.

Made arranged a birthday blessing for my father and our family all joined in. We have travelled to Bali often and so this was a wonderful way to have some of that experience when we can't travel and are separated by a family. A lovely way to start the day and feel blessed.

Made was great! Very personable and helped us participate in the ritual at our pace. Even though we were over zoom, he made us feel like we were in the same room. We walked away energized, feeling peaceful, and had our blessed water to use after the ceremony.

It was a magical experience. I am glad to spend my birthday with Made. The ceremony was beautiful and Made took time to explain every step. Made embodies everything that's so special about Bali

I received Made's water blessing on the morning of my birthday and it was a lovely way to start the day. Made is warm and welcoming and explains everything clearly, showing the beautiful offerings and talking you through each meditation ritual. There is enough time for questions and chatting at the end. I really recommend you have everything you need with you from the start - flowers & a glass of water - so you can relax and fully enjoy the experience. This is a great way to mark the beginning of a special day or to connect with the energy of Bali during travel restrictions. Thank you Made for sharing this experience with me and for taking me back to my beloved Bali for an hour. I'm very grateful!

We booked this experience for my husband's birthday - and a truly wonderful experience it was. For an hour, we were back on Bali island, having the chance to experience one of the many rituals this fascinating culture has. Made led us through meditation and the water blessing ritual in a friendly and cheerful way, explaining the steps along the way. We felt entranced by the content, and the history behind the individual parts of the ritual. Whilst the ritual obviously has a religious background, it is suitable for people of all, if any, denominations. It is not "over the top - esoteric", but a lovely, very calming experience with a deeper meaning. We highly recommend it to anyone. Terimakasih banyak Made!
