Other than bringing something for our celebration parties and dinner at restaurants, we suggest loose summer clothes such as shorts, t-shirts, wide blouses and thin linen trousers. Women in dresses have no problems anywhere but in the temples where long sleeves and a sarong must be worn. We also suggest sun hats and sunscreen to protect you from the tropical sun.
Bali is located very near to the equator, therefore it has a warm, tropical climate. Average year-round temperature stands at around 30°C with a humidity level of about 85%. Generally one can say that Bali is pleasant all year through. Even if it rains, Bali is enjoyable. The two seasons are not clear cut and fully predictable, but generally from November through to March is the wet season.
The high temperatures combined with the high humidity is not easy for some, as also during the night the temperatures do not drop. On the coast there Is often a nice fresh breeze from the sea. All of the rooms in our luxurious resorts are air conditioned.
By offering our retreats in Bali, not only have we been able to keep the price down so you can experience amazing transformation, you get to experience the beautiful, peaceful environment of Bali.

Passion for Living Retreats goes far beyond what you can experience on most other retreats. Our retreats are transformational and life changing with qualified and professional facilitators who have many years experience in group work, running retreats, facilitation, teaching and working as successful therapists.
Passion for Living Retreats not only offers you an opportunity to look at what stops you from living your life with passion and meaning, but as both facilitators are fully qualified Astrologers, you have the added benefit of working experientially with your astrological natal chart.
Other retreats may just offer Yoga and meditation, however we offer you an opportunity to immerse yourself in meditation, yoga, group work, astrology sessions and experiential circle work, cocktail/mocktail parties, outings, long nourishing lunch breaks and far superior and luxurious accommodation.
Our retreats are not just a retreat, or not just a holiday, but a journey into discovery of who you truly are. To have fun, relax, be pampered, to enjoy the divine culture of the Bali, to have connection with yourself and others as well as gaining personal transformation.
The founders of Passion for Living retreats, Penny and Tamika have many year’s experience working as Counsellors, Gestalt Psychotherapists, Hypnotherapist’s and Resource therapists. They both hold a great deal of passion and enthusiasm about the work that they do and saw the need in the retreat market to offer holistic programs, where not only can you take time out for you in an amazing environment, but you gain practical and valuable skills from the program, which allow you to be the best possible version of you.
