SOUL SHINE BALI RETREATARE YOU READY TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND LET YOUR SOUL SHINE? RESERVE YOUR PLACE
For the woman who is craving fun and adventure and is ready to unleash her heart, and rediscover her purpose and joy.
Are you stuck in a cycle of over-doing, over-giving and under-living?
Do you feel overwhelmed and exhausted by the responsibilities of life?
Are you over giving to others what you actually need yourself?
Do you love the idea of adventure and taking some precious time out to reflect on what you want and who you want to be?
If you’re ready to say a resounding YES to yourself, join me on a magical and rejuvenating 7 night journey to Bali, the island of the Gods. Here, amidst pristine rice fields, ancient temples and an abundance of natural wonders, you’re invited to let go of the responsibility and obligations, to surrender to your own inner hearts calling and rediscover the childlike joy that comes with total freedom and authentic self expression.
26 August – 2 September 2023
Do you remember who you were before the fatigue, stress and constant worry set in? Do you remember when life was fun, you played and laughed a lot. A time that wasn’t so serious and complicated?
Here, in the most inspiring and supportive space imaginable, you will reconnect with those feelings again. You will expand your awareness of yourself and reconnect with your own needs, passions, dreams and desires. You’ll let go of all that is ready to be shed so you can effortlessly discover contentment and fulfilment and walk boldly into your next season of life.
Over the last several years, life has initiated me into some of the biggest challenges imaginable; healing from breast cancer, not once, but twice, and then more recently, unexpectedly losing my husband and becoming a single mother.
I know how easy it is to throw your hands up in the air when life feels brutally unfair and the idea of giving up feels easier than pushing through. Yet despite what many people would consider to be insurmountable setbacks, I truly believe that when we go through big life transitions, it changes us in profound ways. And we need space and time to integrate these changes so we can reconnect with life in a more deeply and profound way.
Even in our darkest times, light, love and beauty are always present. We get to experience the full kaleidoscope of our emotions in bright colour and appreciate their strength and beauty.
“I believe that life is a choice and resilience comes from knowing yourself and loving yourself deeply. When we take care of ourselves, it becomes that much easier to navigate life with ease and grace. When we can connect to our true essence, inner wisdom and power, this is where we discover true fulfilment, love and trust for our journey though life. “
This journey to Bali isn’t a mere pause button or a tick off your bucket list. This is an opportunity for a re-birth. This is an invitation to find yourself again, to gather all the parts of yourself that may have been left behind over the years and come back to a place of wholeness. With the mystical Mama Bali as your sanctuary and your playground, you can reconnect with your inner child and prioritise fun, adventure and pleasure without a twinge of guilt.
Tucked away in the lush greenery of Ubud, is a place where you will surrender to an inner peace, stillness and tranquillity that your current self may not have felt in quite a long time.
Whether you’re coming to Bali to find yourself or to let something go, to birth something new or to transform, you will find it here.
Imagine arriving at a tropical oasis, a sprawling space of iconic rice fields, towering palm trees, infinity pools complete with swings and vibrant sunbathing pads. Upbeat tunes playing in the background, the aromas of freshly cooked delicacies linger in the air and you are greeted by a team of smiling Balinese people who become family after your first shared exchange.
This is Soulshine Bali.
Designed and owned by Michael and Sara Franti, Soulshine is a place of barefoot luxury, a unique home away from home that celebrates the joy of wellness, right alongside rock & roll.
This unique luxury resort is equal parts peaceful tranquillity and upbeat playfulness. You’ll start your days with gentle yoga from the rooftop shala, watching the morning sun sweep over the panoramic view of jungle, rice paddies and flowing streams. By night, you’ll have the chance to dance up a storm to live music, the dance floor aglow with smiling faces and a canopy of twinkling stars above your head.
Throughout the week we will balance meditation, mindfulness and wellness rituals, alongside adventures, time in nature and invitations for self expression and play. You’ll feast on delicious, fresh, healthy meals, experience the intoxicating magic of Balinese culture, and enjoy the deepest, most peaceful slumber of your life.
All this awaits you, and so much more.
Mouthwatering, fresh and vibrant cuisine will keep you well fueled and satiated throughout your Bali retreat.
Soulshine’s motto is ‘100% healthy, 90% of the time,’ meaning you can enjoy delicious colourful salads right alongside a decadent slice of chocolate cake.
Meals are made with organic ingredients that come from the onsite organic garden and local farms, ensuring you the freshest, tastiest and most nutritious food imaginable.
You’ll have the chance to delight in iconic Balinese flavours with favourites such as Nasi Goreng and Gado Gado, alongside beautiful fresh curries, healthy tempeh burgers and jackfruit tacos, local seafood, abundant salads and nourishing soul bowls.
All meals are designed to be good for your body, soul and of course, your tastebuds!

WILL YOU BE JOINING US?
‘Have a few questions before you say yes?
Check out our FAQ’s below or get in touch with me personally, I’d love to hear from you.
There are few things in life that are more transformational, nourishing, memorable and deeply satisfying on a soul level, than a retreat.
Taking a week out for yourself, not having to lift a finger, following your heart-pulls and inner butterflies is life-changing in and of itself.
This retreat is a reminder, a reminder of how good you are designed to really feel. A reminder of how much blissful joy exists for you outside of your daily grind. A reminder of all you are capable of, all you are worthy of and all you are destined for in this one precious lifetime.
Don’t waste another day, month or year to say yes to yourself and to your own needs and dreams. This is your permission to reconnect with the very best version of yourself and courageously step into new ways of living that are more aligned with your truth and your soul.
Sometimes a retreat doesn’t just change your life.
It saves it.
Hi, my name is Katrina, I’m the founder of Hart Retreats, a mindfulness meditation teacher, accredited Matrescence facilitator, self-love advocate, a health and life coach, lover of sunsets and long walks on the beach. I am incredibly passionate about ensuring that every woman feels seen, valued, supported and celebrated on their journey through life.
My own life journey has not been an easy one. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, at a time we were hoping to start a family, and again in 2021. In 2022 I lost my husband unexpectedly and I suddenly found myself as a solo parent to my two young children.
From these experiences I know first hand the importance of looking after yourself – especially through life’s challenges – and that it is possible to find joy and happiness, regardless of what life throws at you.
My mission is simple – to help women love themselves and feel empowered to live life with ease, abundance, joy and fulfilment.
I feel deeply honoured to hold space for women on retreat and I offer a pertinent reminder of the benefits of slowing down and finding stillness in a very busy and distracted world.
I wholeheartedly believe that mindfulness and self-love is the secret sauce to living life with more vitality, ease and abundance and I am incredibly grateful that I can share my own wisdom, insights and life experiences to support women on their own life trajectory.
Now more than ever, the world needs women to feel strong, enlivened and connected – not just for ourselves – but for the next generation to come. It’s time for women to rise and create a world where we all feel seen, supported and celebrated.
WHAT WOMEN HAVE SAID ABOUT THEIR RETREAT EXPERIENCE
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing experience. Every part of it was perfect and I left feeling so refreshed and reset. I hope you can do some more of these wonderful experiences next year as I have many friends who would love to experience it also.
I got far more from my retreat experience then I ever thought could be possible. I stopped and put my phone down. I learnt valuable skills to help calm my mind and there are so many tips that I will be taking back to my home life, just small changes that I can make on a day to day basis for me, my family and learning how to prioritise things a bit better and just to be an all round calm, more relaxed, mindful person. I’m really excited to go back and start implementing these things day to day.
I've never done a retreat before, is that ok?
Yes! This retreat is suitable for everyone. All you need is the desire to come to Bali and spend a week enjoying wonderful activities, reconnecting with yourself and meeting some beautiful like-minded women in an inspiring and rejuvenating environment. Everything will be taken care of for you so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your journey.
I'm new to meditation, Is that ok?
Absolutely. Meditation will be guided and all you need to do is let go of the mind and any expectations you have and enjoy the feeling of being fully present and seeing what arises for you. There is no ‘right’ way to meditate, simply come as you are.
What if I'm new to yoga?
The yoga classes will be suited to all levels and are beginner friendly. This is a perfect opportunity to experience the benefits of yoa in a safe and supportive setting with a great teacher within a really beautiful yoga atmosphere.
What demographic will this retreat be for?
This retreat is open to all women, it will likely be women between 35-55. But there could be younger or older women joining too. On retreat you will find that demographics don’t have much significance and away from the labels and titles we hold in daily life, it’s easy to connect with other women from all walks of life.
What do I need to bring with me?
When you join you will be emailed with all the information you will need for your retreat week. You won’t need too much! Basic active wear, clothing for a warm tropical climate, a journal, swimwear, a sarong and toiletries. Soulshine will provide towels and shower products for you.
Is Bali safe to travel solo?
Yes, Bali is an incredibly safe place to travel as a solo woman. The people are very friendly, warm and welcoming. Everything is set up well for tourism and getting around is safe and easy. All transport for activities will be organised for you on retreat.
Is airport transfer included?
Yes, someone will be waiting to greet you at the airport when you arrive. More details will be sent to you closer to the retreat date.
Can dietary needs be taken care of?
Yes, Soulshine caters to all dietary needs. There are plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available. Dietary requests can easily be managed by the experienced kitchen team. We will let Soulshine know if any dietary needs prior to your arrival.
I'm coming solo. Can I have a private room?
Yes! Private room options are available. There are limited spaces though so if you do wish to have a private room, please book your space early. Private rooms have a private ensuite bathroom.
I'm coming solo. Can I share a room with another guest?
Yes, twin share rooms are available for women travelling to the retreat together, and also for those who are happy to share a room with another retreat guest. Each room has a private ensuite bathroom that you will share just between the two of you.
Do I have to do all the included activities?
It is entirely up to you how much you decide to partake in on retreat. Of course, we encourage you to get involved and make the most of everything that is on offer and available to you. Of course, if you would rather spend an afternoon by the pool or have a quiet morning to yourself, you are more than welcome, nothing is compulsory or mandatory! We do find that women love being part of the retreat journey and there will also be spare time for you to enjoy as you please as well as the scheduled activities.
