discover a path to wellness that is uniquely yours.

Merasa, Indonesian for ‘to feel’, invites you to discover a path to wellness that is uniquely yours; to intuitively feel the needs of your body and mind. Doing things the Potato Head way, we honour the philosophy of duality within Balinese culture –embracing both peace and pleasure– to gently guide you towards a natural inner balance.

Wellness is not a destination but an ongoing journey.
And we’re here to meet you wherever you are along the way.

SANCTUARY

Sanctuary at Desa Potato Head is a wellness experience connecting the community with their flow state: the sense of fluidity between one’s body and mind. In flow, find yourself entirely immersed and beyond distraction in your day-to-day life and awaken a higher level of consciousness.

We offer alternative forms of wellness and spirituality practices including vibroacoustic audio visual therapy, sound healing, breath work, ice bath therapy, energy medicine, somatic release, and awakenings 7-days a week.

LIGHT / SOUND / VIBRATION JOURNEY

For those wanting to reach altered states of consciousness, stimulate your brain wave activity with multi-sensory light, sound, and vibration immersions.

This journey elevates the traditional sound healing experience using custom-built sound healing beds equipped with powerful vibrational speakers which resonate sounds through a water mattress and carry them deep into your body. Here, you’ll experience full body vibrations, creating the sensation of being inside the sound.

It also incorporates light meditation technology that stimulates the pineal gland inducing visions of colours, fractals and sacred geometry, entrancing the mind into deep meditative states of consciousness where healing and mystical experiences can occur.

Daily from 12:00 pm – 2 pm – 4 pm at Sanctuary.
60 mins

BREATHWORK & ICE BATH

Face your fears and reach your full potential.

Breathing is a natural, unconscious act we perform about 22,000 times per day to bring life force into our bodies. Putting conscious thought and focus to our breath can elevate our mind, body, and soul while releasing emotional and energetic blockages, bringing to light past traumas, and healing them, as well as allow for the experience of euphoria. We conclude this session with a beachfront ice bath to celebrate your journey.
