July 2017 was a memorable month for the Foundation, with our first ever International retreat taking place amidst the amidst the tranquil rice fields of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. Participants enjoyed a week of rejuvenation for the body, mind and soul… experiencing authentic Balinese accomodation, surroundings and traditions, delicious organic Balinese vegan meals, (optional) sunrise Yoga, Qi Gong and Meditation, short daily Gawler teachings, pampering body therapy sessions, and lots of free time to shop, explore local attractions, or relax and unwind at the stunning Dragonfly Resort.

“The Bali experience exceeded our expectations – the beautiful environment, the very generous people, the experience with our teachers and the opportunity to connect with an extraordinary group of people… and most of all, to experience all of this with my life partner.” – Jim C.
