Gorgeous traditional welcome dance with two of the young girls of the family who own our Retreat Residence, Canggu Bona Kubu, the girls learn dances at school for ceremonies.

A traditional dance wouldn't go with out traditional music.

Gorgeous Leisha of Bowl and Arrow ready for retreat.

As part of the ceremony the girls gifted each of the guests with flowers | Eyes of gratitude from Emma Mildon.

Our First of Many Meals |

Clearly I'm excited that the retreat has officially started.

Dandelion table setting, this place is so sweet and even has bunnies hopping around on the lawn outside.

Our first meal together, such a treat to meet everyone.

Hayley, Steph and Laura | Three beautiful ladies that had never met until the retreat, there's something magic about bringing woman together.

Dandelion's traditional take on mie goring, at every meal the majority of food is gluten free.

Gado gado, a favourite from retreat | lots of veggies and peanut sauce.

Gorgeous Lou | Clearly as excited as I am about being on retreat.
