Explore ancient rituals with Trance Possession and Healing in Bali - AsiaRooms.com
March 31, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsAsiaRooms.com highlights people who travel in order to see different cultures and understand the history of local customs will probably be interested in an event being held in Bali in May.
Anyone who is staying in accommodation in Ubud should certainly consider taking part in Trance Possession and Healing in Bali.
The event, which is being run by the Bali Institute for Global Renewal, lasts for two weeks and aims to take people on a journey into Balinese culture, particularly relating to the use of ritual trance in community practices and personal healing.
Visitors who book onto the experience will spend five days in Ubud, observing rituals in the neighbouring villages, before heading off on a tour of the island.
During the trip, tourists will be taken to sacred sites around Bali, as well as being able to see things that are seldom shown to outsiders, including trance dramas and masked dance performances.
Participants will also be able to take part in some of the ceremonial street processions that happen in Bali at this time of year.
Running from May 10th to 23rd, it is an opportunity not to be missed for anyone who enjoys getting under the skin of a different country.
For people visiting at other times, the organisation regularly runs events relating to the island and its heritage.
