After breakfast at the hotel, meet with the guide and driver and leave for a unique experience with a local Balinese shaman Ketut at the Mas Village. You will start the day with a visit to the Temple of Pura Desa (temple of the village, dedicated to the gods of the trinity). You will discover the temple and the importance of rituals in Balinese daily life. You will walk towards a house and learn how to make the traditional Balinese offerings at Ketut Liyer House that will be necessary for the ceremony; the guide will explain the philosophy of these ‘Canang Sari’. Then we will have reading of luck. Pak Ketut reads and interprets various lines of the palm and performs a future forecast while you will be drinking traditional Balinese tea or coffee and biscuits.
Then continue you will take the offer (Canang Sari) to the family temple and pray, guided by the shaman. Last but not least of the procession he will perform a purification ritual followed by opening a chakra and reading the palm. With his singing and his prayer, the shaman is able to “detect” the unbalanced energy, as well as the negative auras. Then perform a purification ritual by spraying coconut water to neutralize the negativity. After this purification it is possible to open the chakra. The chakras are seven points that behave like the central energies of the human body that are related to self-esteem, emotion, affection, mental stability and wisdom. The unbalanced energy in a person’s body means that one chakra has become more active than the others and the opening of the chakra is performed to maintain the right balance.
After this first experience, head to a nearby local restaurant for a traditional Balinese lunch with organic drinks. After lunch, you will go with the guide to the center of Ubud to explore and discover the charm of this wonderful city. Visit the Agung Rai Art Museum (ARMA Museum) and enjoy one of the best permanent collections of Balinese and Indonesian paintings and sculptures. A visit to the ARMA museum offers a great overview of the island’s rich artistic traditions. Back to hotel for overnight.
Note: out of respect for the local Hindu religion, it is suggested to wear Balinese clothing (sarong and band around the waist). Please remember to have long hair gathered, to avoid sleeveless vests and not to wear trousers under the sarong.
