BHA Blood Drive (26 February)

This is rather an unusual event. However, it is an extremely important one. The Bali Hotels Association is inviting the community to come along and give blood. Why? Quite simply giving blood saves lives. The blood you give is a lifeline in an emergency and for people who need long-term treatments. Many people would not be alive today if donors had not generously given their blood. In the UK, over 6,000 blood donations are needed each day to treat patients across England alone. Imagine Indonesia with a much higher population. The BHA needs your help so please come along and donate your blood to this good cause and help save lives. Perhaps one of your goals this year is to help others and this is exactly how you can make a positive difference to the lives of others in need.


When       : 12 noon – 3 pm

Where     : Finns, Jl Pantai Berawa No 32, Canggu

How to Live Your Path with Heart (17 February)

In today’s increasingly stressful and competitive world it can be easy to lose sight of your path in life. With this half day workshop you will be given guidance to get greater clarity about what your unique path with heart looks like, and then establish a number of specific and practical steps to take you in that direction. Dissolving limiting beliefs and obstacles will open you up to more possibilities and ultimate fulfilment. It is often quite astonishing what boundaries people put in place or hide behind, often unknowingly, that prevents them from moving forward to achieve their full potential in all aspects of life. In this workshop you will carry out exercises to further clarify your path with heart and purpose. You will learn how to tap into your heart’s inner wisdom and understand how you can bring more courage and authenticity into your life.

Myofascial Masterclass (18 February)

This is an interesting workshop and an exploration of how we move. The class will explore movement and delve into fascia to understand what it is that makes us the shapes that we are. You will gain deeper insights into what restricts movement, and how to work with the body to create strength, flexibility and freedom and space. The workshop will cover the role fascia plays, the importance of flexibility, how emotions get stored in the body, injuries within the system, the role the central nervous system plays in all types of movement and how to create healthy and pain free movement. James Mattingley will be leading the workshop, an inspiring traveller, martial artist, yogi, movement lover, entrepreneur and public speaker. Passionate about exploring and creating integrated movement to enhance and improve all areas of life, James Mattingley teaches and coordinates teacher training for Radiantly Alive in Bali and beyond.
