Burgs developed the Retreat Bali and its healing programmes in 2005 to give you the opportunity to detoxify and rejuvenate body mind and spirit at the deepest level. For everyone with the aspiration to reach an optimum level physical mental and spiritual wellbeing there comes a time when it is necessary to remove the layers of deep blockage and toxic load from the body.
Our modern western lifestyle has sadly blessed us with nutritionally barren food, an over consumption of pharmaceuticals and antibiotics, intolerable mental stress levels, habits of excess alcohol, caffeine, smoking and recreational drug use; and an increasingly unbearable load of toxic electromagnetic fields. Under this burden our body begins to degenerate and with it our mind’s capacity for clarity and insight, and our heart’s connection to source.
Full and radiant health and vitality levels are something few can take for granted these days. Rather it is something we aspire to. The goal of the programs offered at The Retreat is to open the door to radiant health and high levels of energy by cleansing and revitalising the body’s various systems and thus allowing improved cellular integrity.

Improve your physical health and you will improve your mental health, improve your mental health and you will improve your physical health. Radiant health and abundant energy is the road to mental happiness, contentment and fitness. If we raise up the vibration of the body we can release much of the physical emotional and mental load that oppresses the mind, and raise the vibration of your consciousness.

Detoxification through fasting can be a first step on the road to happiness, health and vitality. First we work with the physical elements of the process, and then the energetic and spiritual components.
1. The pH Levels of the Body
When the body is too acidic, we create an environment where bacteria, parasites and fungus can thrive and multiply,. This can cause a toxic buildup within the body alongside a loss of cellular function. An important area of our programme is restoring correct pH and giving the body the optimum nutrients to kick start the process of detoxification and regeneration.
2. The Blood
The blood is a mirror of what’s going on in your body, mind and soul. Our holistic view of health and well-being understands that the correction of dysfunction in the blood terrain is a major factor in achieving optimal health. The blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body, and it’s ability to do this determines whether our cells are able to perform their many functions. If this transport network becomes compromised the whole body soon begins to degenerate. Therefore clean healthy and well-oxygenated blood is crucial to good health and proper body function.
3. The Bowel & Fasting
Bowel cleansing is one of the most important parts of detoxification. Much toxicity comes out of the large intestine, and sluggish functioning of this organ can rapidly produce general toxicity. The proper level of elimination of these toxins is essential to health. We all know what happens to a dustbin if it isn’t cleaned regularly, but how many of us even think about cleaning the bowel and digestive tract? Furthermore, a bowel loaded with toxic waste greatly compromises the ability of the body to absorb nutriment from our food. But when we fast, our body begins to go into detox mode, and it is vital that our rubbish removal system is working quickly and effectively, preventing the re-absorption of toxic waste into the blood stream.
4. The Liver
The liver is a major player in the detoxification progress. It is responsible for hundreds of vital processes within a healthy body. Along with the bowel it seems to be the organ we like to abuse the most! During the cleansing process your liver will take a rest from the everyday onslaught we subject it to, allowing deep cellular rejuvenation and cleansing to occur.
5. The Body’s Electromagnetic Field and Cellular function
European researchers have discovered that cellular function and communication is impaired by toxic electro-magnetic fields. By being in a naturally resonant environment with very little EMF pollution as well as using interventions of healthy magnetic fields, we can re-organise the body’s subtle energy, and improve cellular function and communication.
6. Our Energy Field and Consciousness
We may already know from our previous and existing practices about the impact of mental disturbances upon our physical body and our ability to connect to higher consciousness. As we purify the body we also need to continue to work through the emotional, mental and energetic disturbances, and release those hindrances that keep us from connecting to source. We use Chi Gung, Yoga, Bodywork, Reflexology Postural assessment and Meditation, as well as energy and consciousness medicines to help with this process, whilst re-tuning ourselves with the sacred energies that are very much alive and present on the island of Bali and which constantly support the work at the Retreat.
For thousands of years, in all manner of spiritual traditions, fasting has gone hand in hand with a deep longing for greater understanding and connection with the divine, and by aligning ourselves with the energies of Renunciation, Acceptance, Determination and Humility we can approach our healing journey in a way most likely to bring success for the benefit of all beings.
It is an innovative detox and healing centre hidden away on the north east tip of Bali. Our nine-day programmes are carefully planned so you can relax, unwind and experience the peace and tranquility of local Balinese life.
