Souldust Bali: Immerse Yourself in Joy
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
What if you were to take the mundane aspects of life and elevate them into a joyful celebration, every day?
The spiritual island of Bali and its magnificent people, full of welcoming smiles & sacred traditions, have a beautiful way of honoring every aspect of life. To truly appreciate this beauty, you have to immerse yourself in the unknown with open arms and wide eyes, to step away from what you know and live every day. By doing so, you will also witness a transformation in yourself … seeing your own beauty and experiencing deep, cellular joy.
Travel with Souldust to a transformative Balinese experience, where we set aside fear and judgment and immerse ourselves in the beauty of Bali. Seasoned Souldust Guide and world traveler, Jen MacNiven, will take you on a gentle, sacred soul experience that includes daily movement, energizing workshops, and unique cultural experiences and excursions. You will return home with Bali in your heart, a clear, expansive sense of the joyful, light-filled woman you are, and practical tools and practices to make every day sacred and bright.
The call to Souldust Bali…
Do you ever feel boxed in, as if you are living a life that does not reflect who you truly are or what you are capable of? Does it feel claustrophobic sometimes, not being in alignment with your truth, your gorgeous light? Is there a yearning for more beauty and joy, every day?
What if you could step out of this box for a week and let yourself just slip into the flow of a culture that honors the everyday sacred? What if you could experience the freedom of releasing beliefs and expectations, releasing fear and judgment, and easing instead into what feels right and true in your soul? What would life feel like if every moment, even the most mundane, were clear, sacred and beautiful?
What if you were to gaze at the edges of the unknown and smile with delight?
Through cleansing rituals in holy water temples, sacred walks amongst rice fields, sunrise volcano hikes, Balinese blessing ceremonies and more… Bali will gently ease you out of your comfort zone and then bring you back to your true essence, allowing you to clarify and then honor who you are and what you you really want in life.
Souldust Bali is for the woman who…
- Feels called to bring in more joy, laughter and a deep sense of self into her life,
- Knows there is an exciting truth waiting to be revealed, beyond the old standby beliefs and patterns,
- Is ready to step out of her comfort zone and say goodbye to judgment,
- Craves that brilliant sense of light + bright that comes from clarity and pure authentic expression, and
- Appreciates experiencing this with a group of sisters on the same path.
Are you already feeling the light wanting to burst out, to be seen? Bali is waiting to embrace and honor you.
The transformative Balinese experience…
8 days, 7 nights accommodations at Soulshine Bali retreat center and yoga oasis, owned by rocker Michael Franti. “We created Soulshine Bali to be a place of happiness where you can chill in a fun, friendly atmosphere, explore the beauty of Bali, enjoy delicious organic food and let your soul soar in the sun.”
All-inclusive delicious meals in Soulshine’s organic Soul Kitchen, homemade with love onsite using fresh, local ingredients.
Daily meditation + movement. Each day begins with us gathering to ground ourselves for the day. Whether it’s meditation followed by a gentle yoga flow, a meditative walk in the rice fields, or creative movement, the time will be tailored to the day’s intention. Held on-site at the Shala Bali, this daily movement will be accessible for all levels of experience.
Excursions and activities that engage with the soul of the Balinese culture. Every experience in Bali is an opportunity to connect with the sacred in yourself. Your time in Bali includes a purifying Balinese water temple cleansing, a sunrise hike up to a magical volcano, visiting the vibrant Bali markets, and receiving a traditional Balinese blessing.
Joyful activities connecting to flow. Wrapped around the cultural experiences are soul workshops and activities led by Jen MacNiven, to help you release beliefs and rejuvenate your soul — including breath work, a blissful outdoor spa treatment such as as flower petal bath, sound bath, and expanding your wings in ecstatic dance.

Your guide on this journey…
Growing up as a military kid, change was the norm for Jen… but it wasn’t easy. Change created major challenges, programmed beliefs and a ‘different’ way of life. Having ticked off all the expected life boxes — college, graduate school, corporate job, buying a house — Jen found herself spinning on a hamster wheel, unfulfilled and unhappy.
After the end of a 12-year career, she took an unplanned, last-minute trip to Bali … where life forever changed. 1 month turned into now 3 years where Jen has traveled and lived abroad in 14 countries on a soulful, spiritual quest to step out of the predictable life boxes and forge her own path to authentic health and happiness, a life filled with celebration.
Jen’s journey has taught her new spiritual + holistic practices and traditions, including training in healthy eating, meditation, and yoga. While the journey of self-discovery never ends, this multi-year experience has shifted her focus 180 degrees, fueling not only her own authenticity but a deep desire to be of service, sharing what she has learned to support the transformation of others.
