Balinese Culture
First inhabited around 2000 B.C., Bali’s cultural roots run deep. Bali is justifiably known as “The Island of the Gods”, and you'll get to experience why.
Visits to Temples
Daily worship has been part of Balinese culture and life for thousands of years. There are 1,000's of Pura's (Hindu Temples), steeped in spirituality and ritual. Visiting these temples is an experience that may transform you to another space and time, and may provide a spiritual awakening.
Breathtaking Views
Connect with nature as we explore the best that Bali has to offer.

The Location

We've secured The Ark, Ubud, Bali for this life-changing retreat. The Ark features 8 guest rooms with private baths. Each room is themed to a particular chakra (including a crystal) and can be configured for double or single occupancy (two twin beds or one double bed).

The yoga/breathwork shala is an open-air space and has everything you need (soft mats for breathwork, yoga mats, blankets, blocks, and straps).

Swim in the sparkling pool, detox in the infrared sauna, and master your mind in the cold-plunge.

We'll dine and connect in the large community spaces or by the fire pit, and there are plenty of cozy nooks to escape to when you want to be alone or enjoy a book.

The Ark is truly off the beaten path, surrounded by farmland and accessible only by motorbike, while also being only a 30-minute walk from town.

Meet Your Retreat Leaders:

Lisa McNett

Lisa, a profound explorer, is deeply driven by a lifelong curiosity about human behavior and self-discovery. Her transformative journey, guided by faith and a compelling life purpose, positions her as a visionary leader carrying ancient wisdom to assist humanity's transition into a New World. Lisa's journey has been marked by extremes and the triumph over trauma and addiction.

Throughout her career in hospitality management, she roamed the US, fueling her anomalous spirit. In 2006, following an inner calling, Lisa moved to India, experiencing a life-altering 'Kundalini Awakening' that unearthed innate gifts collected over lifetimes. This event fueled her pursuit of the healing arts and intuitive growth.

Central to Lisa's essence is her mission and passion, helping people heal and integrate adverse life experiences, with a focus on trauma healing. Over 17 years, she has worked extensively with diverse groups, including incarcerated individuals and at-risk US Veterans, offering stability and healing. She firmly believes that healing trauma creates a ripple effect, resonating across generations and contributing to the collective healing of the world.

As founder of One Breath Institute and co-developer of Introspective Breathwork™ Therapy, Lisa's life's purpose comes to fruition. This groundbreaking therapy method mirrors her unwavering commitment to transformation and healing. Crucially, within One Breath Institute, we are establishing a worldwide network of trauma-informed Introspective Breathwork™ Therapy practitioners, magnifying Lisa's vision and influence on a broader scale.

Additionally, she dedicates part of her time to The Guest House, a residential treatment center for trauma and addiction, as a Clinical Breathwork Practitioner.

Ultimately, Lisa's purpose is clear: to contribute to healing, understanding, and transforming the world through her unique blend of wisdom, experience, and compassion.

Kahea Bencke

Kahea is a Reiki Master, C-IAYT Yoga therapist, LMT, and shamanic practitioner who is currently residing in Honolulu, HI. She is an adventurer, a lifelong student, and a practitioner of the healing arts. One of her greatest joys in life is traveling to the source of spiritual teachings, so that she can embody a deeper understanding of them from an energetic and cultural standpoint. She has traveled to China to study Qigong, India to explore yoga, Peru to learn Andean Shamanic practices, and Hawaii to embrace Hawaiian healing. Kahea loves integrating these teachings, applying them to daily life, and sharing their wisdom with others. She has discovered that the one connective thread that is consistent cross-culturally is utilizing the breath as a tool for healing and transformative change. She loves to incorporate breath and movement to help people have a deeper experience of all aspects of themselves.
