Bali, the justly renowned diamond in the necklace of islands that makes up the world’s largest archipelago, is well-known for its inner and outer beauty. Bali Hinduism is the predominant local religion and one that nurtures and encourages the arts. Bali’s stunning geographical beauty includes majestic volcanoes surrounded by terraced rice fields that gently spill into an azure sea.
Balinese worship their deities at ceremonial festivals, held every 210 days according to the Balinese lunar calendar system. Our time in Bali is organized to attend rituals connected with Nyepi, the Balinese New Years, and one of the most important festivals in the Bali Hindu calendar year where the entire island undergoes purification.
