Mandala Magic has designed a special retreat for balancing the mind/body/spirit connection intuitively and creatively.

We want you to experience the uniqueness of Balinese culture and not the artificial world of a resort and yet still be comfortable, relaxed and nurtured. Your local hosts are a family who love and support their country, its traditions and sacredness. Set in the heart of Ubud you are free to easily access all that this village has to offer.

Workshops will take up most of your days, however there is time to relax, reflect and absorb with a day to your self nicely spaced to enjoy a pampering experience (included) or explore more of Bali.

Discover a sense of wholeness and wellness on all levels in the perfect environment of Bali.

Optional added extra - a visit to a traditional healer and Sharman.

Making a mandala is the beautiful and magical process of unfolding our creative potential that lies naturally within.

Our general practice is to send information and documents to our customers electronically and via text messages whenever possible.

Cancellations and Changes

Your contract with your Suppliers may allow them to cancel or amend bookings. We will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes once we become aware of such change if there is time before your departure, but we accept no liability for any changes or costs incurred that may result. Subject to the Supplier’s terms and conditions, you will then have the choice of accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements if one is made available by the Supplier, or canceling your booked arrangements and receiving any applicable refunds. We do not guaranty that any refunds will apply. We have no control over airline schedule changes and accommodation and accept no liability for costs which may arise as a result of such changes.

Any claim for damages for injury, illness, loss or death must be brought against the relevant supplier of the travel services or products.

Force Majeure - Mandala Magic shall not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by you as a consequence of Mandala Magic or any of the suppliers being unable to perform its obligations under your contract(s) due to the unusual or unforeseeable circumstances (a “force majeure event”) beyond the control of the party affected by the force majeure event.

Travel Insurance - Mandala Magic insists that you take out comprehensive travel insurance at the time of paying a deposit. The policy should provide cover for loss of deposit, cancellation and additional expenses, medical expenses and repatriation and loss or damage to baggage and valuables. You are responsible for making any special or increased insurance arrangements which you deem are necessary.


The root meaning of the word creative is ‘to grow’.  Making mandalas is a growth process - on many levels.
