My name is Denisse Moralli and I am a 29 year old from Argentina. In March 2015 I undertook a Tapa Brata 1 course and it was a really deep experience for me.
During day 4, when I had my consultation with Pak Merta Ada, I explained some of the feelings that I usually have, such as: menstrual pain; some feelings in my body that sometimes experience when I go to sleep like a kind of electricity in my bones; and also the fact that I need glasses. After Pak Merta scanned my body he told me that everything I was feeling came from my relationship with my mother. He mentioned that. Could be in my past life my mother had left me and in this life I was born with a big attachment to my mother which stemmed from the fear of her leaving me again.
Have you ever tried to mindfully breathe without actually controlling your breath? Being aware of your breathing but not controlling it? That trick I learned on day 2 of my Bali Usada journey.
The weeklong program in Baturiti, Bali (in Bahasa Indonesia. International classes are held in Ubud) was perhaps the most disciplined I’ve ever been in my life, and also the most valuable learning experience I’ve ever endured. For 7 days and 6 nights 32 other participants and I stayed at Bali Usada’s meditation center where we took a vow of silence, practiced good thought and positive thinking, routine meditations (about 6 times a day), and vegetarianism.

A harmonious mind makes your body healthy, your mind peaceful and gives you happiness, stated by Merta Ada, one of Indonesia and Southeast Asia’s leading meditation gurus of the 21st century.
The Bali Usada Silent Meditation Retreat focuses on learning how to heal oneself through concentration, mindfulness and the wisdom to achieve harmony of the mind. Through harmony of the mind, you can check your body, heal your body and remove negative memories from your sub-consciousness. This meditation technique is a tool for life.
In this intensive health meditation and physical awareness programme, participants will learn how to heal through “loving kindness” and embrace a life of joyfulness. The healing meditation focuses on how we can train our mind to surrender negative thought patterns, worry, trauma, bad energy, etc., to reach a harmonious mind, bearing qualities of concentration, mindfulness, loving kindness and wisdom. Meditators will share time with the master teacher, Merta Ada, and listen to enlightening dissertations. Noble Silence is practiced for several days throughout the program to help strengthen your concentration and spiritual awareness. The technique teaches you how to understand the present reality inside your mental-physical structure, through observing your breathing and the physical sensations in your body.
