An Exclusive Offer

Hello Beloved Friends,

It’s the trip of a lifetime and you are invited to join Lisa A. Rizzoli and Laza Daka as they lead you on a Tantra Adventure Tour in Bali, Indonesia March 16 – March 25, 2015. This exclusive retreat experience weaves elements of Tantra Yoga, active adventures on a magical island and participation in Balinese culture.

Bali is calling YOU!girl

Now, it is not easy to justify doing something so wonderful and so out of the ordinary for yourself. You may need some pretty good arguments to overcome that part of your mind that thinks you really might not deserve to enjoy your life in a big way.

Here are some excellent reasons why a Bali trip is not only a good idea, but it is an absolute necessity. Check it out…

4 Reasons Why You Must Come to Bali:

  1. You need a break! Face it, our lives are intense. We are so focused on work and family and money and school and all the obligations and commitments that make up our lives. That is all good, but it is easy to lose our bearings (and maybe even ourselves!) in all the hustle and bustle. From the moment you step off the plane in Bali, you can feel yourself let go, relax and decompress. What a relief! In Bali, you are half a world away where life is simpler and it moves at a slower pace. Distance lends perspective and it is time to look at your life in a new way.
  2. You need more beauty in your life! lotusWe all do. It is easy to forget howmuch beauty enriches our lives and nurtures our spiritual connection. It is not how many breaths we take in a lifetime that is important, but how many breathtaking moments we allow ourselves to experience. Bali is one of the most beautiful places on this planet. From imposing volcanic mountainscapes to lush rice paddies; from verdant jungles to stunning sunsets over the ocean, your Bali Tantra Adventure Tour is filled with wondrous beauty and awe-inspiring sights and sounds.
  3. You are ready for a change!From a change of pace to a change of scenery to a change of direction. It is time. Bali provides all that and more. In Bali you can step out of your old patterns, your old sense of self and old ways of being and step into an entirely new experience of you. In Bali, creativity and artistry are everywhere a way of life. In a culture so steeped in creativity, among a people so inspired and imaginative, you may very well find yourself reinventing your life in subtle (or even not so subtle) ways. Consider the effect Bali had on Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love”.dancers
  1. It is not just a vacation, it is a Spiritual Adventure!namaste When you take a break from your ordinary, day-to-day routine, you want more value from the experience than just sitting at the beach sipping margaritas. You are a multi-dimensional being and you are ready to cultivate and develop more than just your suntan. Unlike the West, Bali is a culture which recognizes the presence of Spirit in every aspect of the life of the individual and the community. For the Balinese, Spirit is everywhere and Bali is considered to be the Island of Gods. Allowing yourself to open to and experience this Presence can be profoundly transformative at the deepest soul levels.

And, surpise! A bonus reason . . .

  1. It will make your co-workers and friends so jealous!That is a small minded and rather petty, so let us just say that your Bali Tantra Adventure Tour will be the most amazing, fun and spiritually expansive journey that anyone you know will experience. You will have bragging rights and the best pictures to share for a good long time.

Here is what one of our participants from the 2013 adventure shares:

Last Spring, I decided to follow Lisa on a Tantric adventure through Bali. I had only recently been introduced to Tantra so I had many questions before the trip, and Lisa was very attentive and helpful in addressing all of my concerns. Once in Bali, she did an amazing job of leading our group and coordinating every last detail of our fantastic experience. It was a wonderfully balanced combination of study, practice, community, adventure, culture and solitude. I came back home with a deeper understanding of my body and a greater connection to all the beautiful sacred energy that is continually flowing through me. I felt internally energized and profoundly awakened to living more consciously in every aspect of my life. Sacred living had become my reality.

In the moment…

I was snorkeling in the Java Sea near Komodo Island. We were in open waters, for a brief period of time I could not see my companions or the boat or land. For that moment, I felt alone and frightened in the vastness. I surrendered to my fears and felt the LOVE and nurturing of the waters that surrounded me. It was true bliss as my sacred waters flowed in delight at feeling so much love, love of the Divine.
Then a huge, majestic manta ray swam beneath me leading me back to my friends.
Surrender is the key. When I am feeling the chaos rise up and the fears flaring, I will practice the breath of surrender and feel into the LOVE. The manta has shown me the way.

Preparing for Group in Bali

I arrived in Bali on Monday March 25, 2013, a few days earlier than the group. I was met by Cokorda Ratih, a Balinese princess, who will be our guide for the Embark Upon A Sacred Journey.

Ratih is a beautiful Balinese woman whom I have a deep connection with. She has shared her home, her traditions and her family. We went to the Mother Temple to celebrate and be in ceremony for the full moon and to prepare for Galungan. The temple was full of Balinese people making offerings, dancing and celebrating. I feel incredibly blessed to be welcomed to participate in this sacred ceremony. The holy men make offerings and prayers as we sit, pray and meditate. The energy is vibrant and intense. My spirit is in ecstatic bliss and recognition of the sacred rituals.

Ratih then took me to visit the bone healer where she received a healing for a problem she is having in her wrist. I witnessed the healer working on two young boys as their families held the boys, the healer set the bones and offered healings. Incredible experiences.

The following day was Galungan. We made offerings and prayers at the home of her husband’s family, her new business location, a temple and her family’s home. Again, I have been graciously welcomed to participate and pray with the family. It has been a perfect way to settle into Bali and prepare for the Tantra Adventure Tour.

And so it begins…

Today, I depart for the Tantra Adventure Tour of Bali. My bags are packed, I’m ready to go. I’ve completed the tasks on my To Do list and a few extras. It feels good to be so ready, yet there is a slight feeling of sadness in my heart.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been walking through the emotional task of a shift of relationship with a beloved. I have experienced many emotions and choose to return to love. I know when I love, I love big with my whole heart. I continue to love with an open heart and see the incredible gifts I have received as a result of being in the relationship.

I am boarding a plane to begin an incredible journey of awakening, ceremony, ritual and adventure in the magical place known as Bali, Indonesia. I have connected to the people, culture and land of this island and will share my knowledge of spiritual principles to a group of people who have courageously registered to Embark Upon A Sacred Journey. We will embody concepts of energy through the modality of movement and adventure. I am excited and deeply honored to guide this journey. My heart opens as it fills with love and gratitude for the opportunities that continue to present themselves in my life.

And so it begins….

To the Top

While traveling in Ubud, Bali in 2010, Kevin and I decided to hire a guide to trek a nearby volcano. There are many, many travel adventure shops to choose from and after checking out a few, we decided on one that felt right. The owner, Wayan, helped us to decide on the best itinerary for our excursion.

After an early morning wake-up call at 2:00AM, we got dressed and headed out for a drive to the base of the mountain. Hardly anyone was out at this time of day but there were many, many dogs roaming the dark streets.  We arrived at the base of Gunung Batur, an active volcano, and met our mountain guide. It was still dark as we began our ascent up the mountain. The stars were incredible and the air was crisp.  As we climbed, the sky began to lighten and we felt the urgency to get to the top for sunrise. We reached the top of the mountain just in time for the spectacular sunrise over Lake Batur. It was absolutely breathtaking and we felt the shift in the air from night to day. The air got a bit colder just as the sun began to crest the horizon and then began to gradually warm up.


After playing and taking silly photos at the top of the mountain we went to the warung and had a breakfast of a steamed egg , toast and of course, Bali coffee. The eggs are placed into a “nest” dug out in the side of the mountain where they were cooked by the heat of the volcano. It was a very tasty breakfast after an exerting trek. We enjoyed EVERY bite!

After breakfast, we began our descent but first our guide showed us the most amazing and powerful display of how the earth is very much alive; responding to us humans on her surface. The guide dug a little hole so that the earth was exposed, then he took a lit cigarette and held it over a spot near the hole. The earth responded to the heat of the cigarette by sending steam up and out of the adjacent hole. It was an incredible moment that sent shivers up my spine as I realized how incredible this truly is. Mother earth recognizes us on her surface and responds to us. From that moment forward, I want to be conscious of how I tread upon the earth—with LOVE & INTENTION

We completed our trek down the mountain, past remnants of the last eruption, while admiring the beautiful and sometimes surreal landscape. It was incredible to see the hardened lava with an “island” of untouched land in the middle of where the lava had once flowed.

We found our driver at the bottom of the mountain who then took us to the nearby hot springs where we enjoyed an amazing soak and delicious lunch. One must not confuse green chile peppers with green beans, but that is another story…….

Dreams Become Reality

In January 2010, I was thinking about what I wanted to manifest in my life. I had a few things on my list and then I thought, “I want to go to a Hoop Camp somewhere other than the west coast this year”. The next day while I was doing my daily FaceBook post, I received an invitation to Sacred Circularities Hoop Retreat in Bali in March. I was so excited and I knew the Universe was responding to my intentions. I checked the dates and I had the air miles and decided, “I AM GOING TO BALI!”

tanjung benoaWhen I arrived in Bali I instantly felt the “island vibe” and felt the sense of relaxation and serenity sweep over me. The island is lush, green and incredibly beautiful. This trip was a fantastic opportunity to connect with the island, the people, and amazing, rich spirituality of the culture. I love Bali.

In 2012, an idea came to me as I was sitting in a Tantra Teacher Training course; “Wouldn’t it be great to be out in nature learning these concepts, instead of being inside a building sitting on the floor for hours?” I have spent many hours in training courses wanting to get up and move my body and be in nature. I began to visualize a workshop where concepts are taught in a classroom setting and then taken out into nature where the participants can integrate the teaching with their bodies through movement in nature. Bali came to mind and I began to open to the possibilities of what could be explored in this amazing spiritual paradise.

Embark Upon a Sacred Journey has emerged as a result of these visions and with the help of several incredible people in my life. I look forward to this experience and to sharing it with those who are up for an adventurous way to explore some of the concepts in Tantra.
