Bali Institute for Global Renewal Brings Record Number of Americans to Bali to Experience the Balinese Day of Silence – 'Nyepi'
Operating four separate programs targeted at different age groups and with different themes, Bali Institute for Global Renewal is coordinating a visit by 25 high school students and three teachers from a private school in La Jolla, California to stay in Ubud to study Balinese cultures and conduct outings to study marine biology on Bali’s north shore. Another group is comprised of more than 30 American yogis who will stay at the Royal Pita Maha, practice yoga in the Resort’s gardens and undertake special cultural visits that include a call on a prince and a Balinese Royal Palace. Two additional groups hailing from Dominican University of California and a private group hosted by Dr. Illana Berger from Santa Cruz California will also be on hand during Bali’s official day of silence.
Bali Institute for Global Renewal was founded in 2004 and has hosted a number of global Conferences focused on “Global Healing” through dialogues on peace and the wisdom of indigenous peoples. In the past, global leaders that include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Indonesian President Gus Dur, numerous Nobel laureates, and social activists from around the world have joined events organized by the Institute.
