“The program was balanced in the content …learning, experiences, participation, free time, socialising. The venue was pretty much perfect; quiet, good accommodation, helpful staff, great food, lovely surroundings, nice space for group work. Presentations were varied but the energy was good. The spa treatments were as good as I expected. The I Ching and the floating ‘Tai Chi” (cant remember what it was actually called) were unexpected treats of  experience. Revitalising, satisfying, enjoyable ….. worth every cent.” Ros 2015

“What I enjoyed most was the resort and staff, peace and quiet, good food, the bicycle, the beach, yogalates, canoe trip and talks on meditation. It’s been a fabulous holiday, as always it’s over too quickly.” – Thailand 2015

“The accommodation was beautiful, not as basic as I was expecting. The whole atmosphere was relaxing, mindful and calm. I think it was good value for everything that was included. On a personal note, that I could think about myself for a change! There was a good balance of “retreat” and fun which has made a great holiday. It was good to be able to try a bit of everything as it helps to see what you really like.” – Thailand 2015

“Thailife was wonderful. I didn’t expect it to be so rural but the location is great – a real change from home and city life. The management and staff were fantastic, beyond expectations. Having the resort to ourselves was  a bonus. The company was great and the instruction and instructors were helpful and interesting. I will be off to join a local Tai Chi class.” Thailand 2015

“I liked that there was flexibility and balance between workshops and free time. The value versus cost was amazing. Great location and clean. Spa was awesome! “I’m Tammie’s #1 fan and think she is serious yet captivating and adds humour that creates such an inviting and safe atmosphere” – Maeva 2015

“I found everything about the retreat meshed together seamlessly to provide the perfect introduction to the practise of mindfulness. From the stunning location, gorgeous accommodation and delicious nourishing food, to the retreat program that allowed for a good balance of time and solo reflection, structure and freedom. The teaching sessions were warm, funny, humorous, and wise. The chance to step out from the habits, routines and noise of our daily lives and allow some room for peacefulness felt incredibly profound. I think we were all surprised by how emotional that experience made us, but Tammie handled it all with grace and equanity. Everything about the retreat was attended thoughtfully with great humour, and care. The only aspect that was rough was that it had to end, but I think that we will all take the skill we acquired and use them to transport a bit of that peace back home with us. Thank you Tammie and all oneworld retreats staff.” – Ruth 2014

“Tammie, Wayan, and Wayan were fabulous – always so professional yet relaxed and enjoyable. Our content was delivered in a non-judgemental way so that we could make our own interpretation and develop within ourselves our own needs. Wayan Yoga is fabulous. He is a very compassionate person who I feel lucky to have encountered! And other wayan was always organising activities so well. Completely well organized to every detail especially the temple blessing night at Tirta Empul . Loved this retreat so much and will be back to do another sometime . Highly recommended.” – Catherine 2014

“Had an amazing retreat. So grateful for Tammie, the team at one world and all the beautiful experiences I had. I got the opportunity to re-discover my inner happiness (cliché I know but true) some practical tools for implementing in my daily life and I had a truly amazing insight into the rich culture on this island. Highlight was discovering yoga with a very talented teacher . Thanks Wayan. See you next year.” – Ragna 2014

“I particularly enjoyed the spiritual aspect. The rituals and activities were life changing. Thank you so much for introducing me to Balinese culture. Tammie, thank you so much for taking me to the Birthing Centre. Dhamma Brothers was also a splendid surprise. The volcano, Tirta Empul and visiting the Healer were tremendous. I wasn’t sure 1 week would be enough, But I found the retreat immensely restorative and rewarding. All the staff were helpful and generous. The facilities and location were spot on.” – Tamsin 2014

“Beyond my expectations. Well run fun a meaningful. Meal and accommodation absolutely wonderful, heavenly at this place is perfect for this retreat. Tammy is simply the perfect facilitator – Humorous fun. Sensitive to everyone needs. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt at ease from the moment I arrived. Forever grateful for this experience. Thank you.” – Mary Jane 2014

“The overall experience was fantastic with a good mix of theory, practical session and cultural experience. Tammie had thought through the activities /experience well to give us a good experience and she is constantly thinking of ways to change the retreat to make it better. The staff were extremely accommodating and there was a lot of flexibility whether to join the activities or not. Although it was quite structured there was freedom to do whatever you wanted. i would highly recommended the retreat.” – Ritz 2014

“For me this has been a chance to evaluate my life and current situation – a circuit breaker to remind me that I have a lot to be grateful for. I have been dealt some devastating blows -losing my daughters in a car crash but I am who I am because of and in spite of everything. This retreat has exposed me to other women who have their own stories of courage and dreadful episodes of abuse and suffering. Hearing them made me realize that everyone has their stories and life isn’t fair but being mindful and gathering tools and strategies to help me cope with my life has been life changing.” – Anne 2014

“I came to the retreat with little or no expectations but found the process incredibly profound. From the first orientation I knew this was the place I needed to be at this time . Tammie’s guidance through the group session was meaningful with touch and humour. The freedom to take the things that were meaningful to me was valued. The whole process was effortlessly aided by the staff of the retreat, who were always polite and helpful with a smile on their face. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The ability to be included in ceremonies and rituals which most tourist would never get to witness was humbling and an honour to be part of. A most nourishing, spiritual and wonderful week which I hope to carry with me forever.” – Heather 2014

“Womens mindfulness retreat is a like a shop of tools that can be used in your daily lives to help you and others around you appreciate the life that given to you. It is well supported by the spa treatments, amazing moving yoga sessions and incredible activities in Bali which all contribute to the inner self development and healing experience. Leave your stresses and strains at the door way of Kumara and enhance in a week of loving kindness from Tammie, Wayan, and the Team. Kumara is a special place, one which I will always remember . Thank you to the team for a truly heart opening experience.” – Alison 2014

“There were women from all different ways of life, with myriad experiences which made for a rich, lively varied discussion. I feel that I was able to gain perspective (based on course work + conversation) and strategies to be more kind to myself, great mixture of reflection, meditation, group work, outdoor excersise and culture experience. I feel like my flicker has been re-lit and i’m hopefully for making it bright and shiny again. Tammie – you have a true gift, you have definitely found your calling. Thank you for balance of humour, ligthness, compassion, depth understanding and revelaing of your own truth.” – Kate 2014  

“I had such a magical time at this retreat. I hadn’t done anything like this before, so I didn’t know what to expect , but I have been blown away by the location, the accomodation is amazing, the staff have been the kindest to come to contact with, they are so helpful and nothing is even an issue to sort and Tammie is fantastic. Just the perfect balance of teaching us so much and helping us on our journey, through the many issues people have brought to act as well as a fantastic sense of humour and keeping enormous spirit. I have learned so much more than I thought I would. The energy in the group has been phenomenal, we are such a mix of people who in everyday life my never meet but I feel we were meant to come together to learn from each other. I feel I have great tools to take home with me, to help me . Thanks to the challenge I face I have enjoyed and embraced every moment here at ONEWORLD retreats with Tammie and the group and not missing at Wayan and Wayan Tekok, who have been amazing , I really don’t want it to end. I will never forget the special time I have had here. Namaste” Tara – 2014

Everything on this retreat fitted in well. I thought the content was interesting but what I enjoyed the most was the people, the laughter and the love. The facilitators are skilled girls, gentle, caring, honest and open, compassionate and loving, thank you.

“After hearing about Tammie’s retreats, I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to do something different. I am a Mum with two children who was very much looking for a break. I went to the retreat by myself which was a big step for me. I can’t say enough about how welcomed and involved I felt during this experience! I had the chance to feel a part of a group but also had the flexibility to just chill out by myself. It was an experience that I will treasure forever. I laughed, cried (usually as a result of the laughing!), had the chance to feel like a pampered queen and also the chance to experience Bali with its truly wonderful, colourful people and experience their sense of peace in such an insanely busy environment. Tammie had the incredible ability to bring it all together in what was the experience of a lifetime”. – Natarsha 2013

“It has been a very memorable retreat. Tammie’s sessions were amazing, I would love to come back and be part of another of her workshops. She was well organised and very mindful of all participants’ needs, both physical & emotional. Yoga session were very good. I loved the inclusion of the Balinese ceremony. The staff have been wonderful, very attentive, making my stay very comfortable & worry free. This includes all staff from the spa to the dining room & the cleaning of the rooms. The venue is awesome, it took my breath away & rooms were very comfortable. I look forward to returning someday soon with some family & friends. Thank you.” – Julie 2013

“Tammie is an amazing facilitator with a genuine empathy and thorough understanding of mindfulness, she also has a fabulous sense of humour and uses it appropriately. All the group sessions were well led and informative with practical tools to take home with you. Staff here are all beautiful souls and accommodation looking over the jungle and rice fields is unparalleled. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone in need of a break away from the everyday. Special mention to Wayan for his wonderful Yoga sessions and cultural knowledge. Nothing was a problem. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” – Jenni 2013

“If there is one thing I would describe about the retreat, Especially Kumara Sakti – I’d say that it was purely magic – that is what it was to me – magic. It was heaven on earth. It was an adventure of a lifetime and I would love to do this retreat in such a magical majestic place with kind, beautiful staff who would do anything for you – over and over again. The rituals opened a gateway to more love, peace, spirituality, even for a non-believer you can’t help but be touched by it all, and how strong the people’s faith is in their Balinese Gods. It was, as said earlier, pure magic.” – Genevieve 2013
