MEIMELALI.COM: 5 Best Workshops and Activities in Bali For Fun Times | Maimelali.com.
Experience a day in the life of a Balinese Villager, including taking part in a Hindu Purification Ritual
This is not as much of a workshop as it is an experience of what a day in the life of a Balinese villager is like. We helped to create this experience with the villagers of Pacung Sangeh who wanted to be able to share their love of their culture, traditions, and land with others. The day includes taking a walk through a traditional family compound in their village, enjoying a Balinese morning tea with the family in the compound, and learning to make Canang Sari (which you will later in the day use as your offerings in your ceremony).
You then enjoy lunch in a traditional warung, set in the rice fields of the village. After lunch, you are taken to a sacred Holy Water waterfall and canyon to take part in a Hindu Purification ritual. The ritual starts in the canyon of the waterfall and you then make your way up through the waterfall, ending with your blessing at the top. The whole way you will be guided and what you need to do in each area and what each prayer and action means. The Hindus participate in this ritual every six months, to wash away any negativity in their lives.
This is a truly unique, personalised, and sacred day….certainly not your run of the mill tourist experience.
