Are you searching for an immersive experience to give you clarity in purpose and walk away feeling fulfilled?

Do you crave connection with soul sisters who support you unconditionally and encourage and empower your journey?

Are you looking for a new level of adventure, alignment, and awakening for your life and business?

This year’s Badassery Bash in Bali is the most immersive, daring, and adventurous experience we’ve offered to date. You and your new tribe of soul sisters will spend ten awe-inspiring days exploring the island of Bali in a journey of gratitude, purpose, and enlightenment.

Escape the mundane, isolated world of being an online entrepreneur. Connect with women from around the globe who have the same longing for camaraderie. Find your tribe of sisters who truly understand the nuance of business ownership in a safe, judgment-free zone. Relax and release as you allow your vulnerabilities show and your inhibitions wash away.

This experience is unlike any other vacation you may be considering. Sight-seers need not apply. We are curating an exclusive, tight-knit group of visionary women who know running a business is one part of a comprehensive lifestyle and values experiences and connection. 

Our journey takes us through three regions, encompassing Northern, Central, and Southern Bali.

Poinciana

Resort & Retreat Center

A picturesque balance of modern comfort with nature, tradition, and style in harmony with the incredible beauty and traditional village life for which Northern Bali is well known.
We begin our experience by spending three nights at the stunning beach-front resort Poinciana, located in pristine and tranquil Northern Bali. One to three-bedroom villas will offer sea views, garden views or pool views.

Each day, you’ll experience new and wondrous explorations of self and your surroundings. Group activities include focused mastermind discussions on life and business, a sunrise dolphin cruise, trekking to a local waterfall, and enjoy amazing spa services. In your spare time, unwind by the two swimming pools or snorkel among the coral reefs right in front of the resort.

All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, refrigerators and tea/coffee-making facilities. Be prepared to enjoy delectable meals made on-site and included in your stay.

Tuesday, March 19

Arrive by plane into Denpasar, Bali, and meet with your personal driver who will take you on the 3-hour journey to the Poinciana Resort in Northern Bali. Once settled into your lux accommodations, we’ll gather for a lavish welcome dinner where you’ll begin to bond and connect with your new soul sisters and get an idea of what’s to come.

Wednesday, March 20

After a delicious breakfast and morning relaxation session, enjoy a restful day on the resort snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, or just swinging in a hammock.  You may also choose to use your free spa treatment voucher this day. In the afternoon, we’ll take a short hike to the Yeh Mampeh Waterfall and soak up the peaceful mountain surroundings. All meals will be provided by the Poinciana resort.

Thursday, March 21

Start your morning with an unforgettable sunrise dolphin cruise on traditional jekung Balinese boats. After breakfast and morning session, prepare for an amazing drive through the Balinese rainforests and rice terraces to reach the Banjar Hotsprings and Brahmavihara-Arama, the largest Buddhist temple in Bali.  Soak up the ancient history and immerse yourself in the therapeutic hot springs. All meals will be provided.

Are you ready for the experience of a lifetime that will fill your soul and connect you with new lifelong sisters?

Alam Indah

Ubud, central Bali

Hidden behind the Monkey Forest of Ubud, the arts and cultural center of Bali, is the tranquil village of Nyuhkuning. Amidst lush gardens and idyllic views, elegant comfort is combined with traditional architecture.
Situated in Bali’s cultural center of Ubud, the Alam Indah (which means “beautiful nature”) offers an authentic and truly stunning Bali experience. Accommodations blend open-air Bali living with modern traditional art and architecture. Your room may offer an open-air shower, a large veranda with day bed, uniquely carved doors and other beautiful touches. Each room looks out on Ubud’s famous Monkey Forest, rice terraces or jungles.

YOur Guides

BADASSERY MAGAZINE CO-FOUNDERS

 

In early 2016 we realized there was a huge gaping hole in the way women worked together. There was no even playing field or way for us to all support each other. In fact, it frustrated us so much we set out to build something better and Badassery Magazine was born.

We remember how it felt trying to figure it out all on our own. We remember how lonely the journey felt. We craved the connection of other strong women.

We held our first retreat in Florida. We were amazed at how every single woman left changed. Connected and bonded to each other. Grounded to their purpose in a whole new way. They’ve stayed close friends ever since.

Connection is our passion. We’ve grown our community to over 15,000 strong. We’ve cultivated a Facebook group and even wrote a book on community building. It fuels us, but still, we knew there was more.

SO, WE CREATED IT.

Enough is enough. It’s time for powerhouse, high-level women to come together. We knew this unique and next level retreat had to happen.
