Bali Photo of the Week ~ Bali Healer

This week we have a nice shot of one of our yoga and wellness retreat participants on a special trip to a Balian or traditional Balinese healer.

We arrived early in the morning and the healer was finishing up a session with a local villager and her family. You can see how interested our retreat participant was in the 'inner workings' of this healing ceremony.

Patience paid off and soon she had her own private healing session with the Balian.
