About Us

7 years ago my life changed – though it seems like yesterday. I closed my business, said goodbye to family and friends, packed a couple bags and started to travel. Destiny brought me to Bali, Indonesia, where I fell in love with the island and its people.

In this time I have met many people, I have learnt and I have grown. After a Balinese ceremony, I started thinking about all the people who had taught me something and all these artisans that work with passion.

Blessing ceremony

Every time we make a production, we perform a ceremony with our dear high priest Ida Ressi to bless the whole production.

Ida is the youngest person ever to be awarded that official title, one of the select few throughout history who has received it without prior formal training, and the only woman to acquire it on her own merit outside of marriage in hundreds of years.

“Player is the essence of certainly.
Prayer is the essence of your belief”

For the last 11 years, Ida has served as a prominent leader of the Bangli regency of over 200,000 community members. She has also welcomed thousands of visitors from around the world to her Ashram, Gryia Agung Budha Salahin, to receive one of her water purification blessings and join her in meditation or discussion.
