Theta brain states, healing, manifestation, clarity, guidance, inner bliss and spiritual awakening.
Pyramids of Chi welcomes a new event and facilitator to our family, Breathwork Ceremony with ThetaHealing by Rommy AM Gelly.
Rommy comes to us with so many skills and so much experience we cannot wait for our guests to attend these ceremonies and enjoy the warmth and care that Rommy provides. The event will run every other Sunday at 5pm with the first event being on June 27. Read on to learn more.
Breathwork, meditation and ThetaHealing are among the most effective tools to support healing and transformation. After extensive studies, expertise and teachings within Bali and around the world, Rommy alchemized these elements to create her own signature experience: Breathwork Ceremony with ThetaHealing.
As a certified and experienced Breath Therapist, ThetaHealer, Reiki Master, channeler, intuitive healer, and practitioner of ancient Mexican traditions, Rommy bridges these rituals and methodologies to create portals for your own exploration and self-discovery.
In this unique ceremonial workshop, you will reach deep Theta brain states that will support your own healing, and allow manifestation, clarity, guidance, inner bliss, and spiritual awakening to take place. This is done by inviting the medicine of breath, sound, movement, and meditation to be encoded within you, as Rommy activates your energy body through powerful ThetaHealing techniques, rituals and energy work that will support your process of integration and wholeness.
Through this journey you will sense the raw power of your own Self, and experience higher states of consciousness, inner shamanic journeys, detoxification, oxygenation and anxiety release.
Rommy AM Gelly is a kind soul that embraces the codes of divine love, beauty and nature. She creates a safe and loving space for you to surrender. In this surrender self-healing and growth can naturally arise.
Every other Sunday @ 5pm (beginning June 27)

Getting to know Galungan Day, the traditional day for Hindu’s to commemorate victory!
People of Hindu in various regions in Indonesia are celebrating Hari Raya Galungan. This celebration is synonymous with Hindus who pray and worship their ancestors in refutation, merajan.
Galungan Day is commemorated as the day of the victory of Dharma (goodness) against Adharma (evil). Galungan is celebrated by Hindus every 6 months or 210 days, using the Balinese calendar calculations, namely on Buddhist Kliwon Dungulan Day (Wednesday Kliwon Wuku Dungulan ) as the Day of Victory of Dharma (truth) against Adharma (evil).
Galungan Day is a moment to commemorate the creation of the universe. As a thanksgiving, Hindus give and make offerings to Sang Hyang Widhi and Dewa Bhatara.
Galungan itself comes from Old Javanese which means 'win'. In addition, the word Galungan has a similar meaning to Dungulan which means to win. Galungan provides an understanding that good intentions and efforts will always win compared to bad intentions and efforts.
In celebrating this holy Galungan day, the Balinese Hindu community carries out various special and special activities. Galungan celebrations begin with prayers in their respective homes, then to larger family temples such as Penjajan Agung, Dadia , Mother Temple, Panti, Banjar Temple and to Kahyangan Tiga or Pelinggih - pelinggih at the place of business.
On this holy day, Balinese people who celebrate Galungan will wear traditional clothes dominated by white while carrying offerings on their heads. For Hindus who have family members with mapendem status or have died or commonly called the Balinese people with Makingsan in Pertiwi, then they have to bring benten to the cemetery.
The Galungan Day celebration is also accompanied by other religious ceremonies, starting from the Tumpek Wariga ( Pengatag ) Day which is held 25 days before the Galungan Day celebration. Then, Kliwon Wuku Wariga , where Hindus make offerings to Sang Hyang Sangkara , which is a manifestation of God as the god of Prosperity and Salvation for plants.
This celebration is a form of human love for plants. The characteristic of Tumpek Pengatag Day is by offering various colors of porridge ( bubuh ), such as white, yellow, red, and green porridge.
The next series of ceremonies is called Sugihan Jawa which is held six days before Galungan. Sugihan Jawa comes from the word sugi which means to purify , while Javanese or jaba means outside.
This religious ceremony is defined as purifying or cleansing everything that is in humans (bhuana agung), such as cleaning the merajan (holy places) and also the house as part of the Great Bhuana.
Then five days before Galungan the Sugihan Bali ceremony was held , which means cleansing the human being both body and soul. This is done so that in the celebration of Galungan will all clean scale and timeless , so that it can run properly.
Then, three days before Galungan Day, the Pahing wuku Dungulan or also known as Penyekeban Day is held . On that day, humans are expected to be able to restrain the senses (lust) and refrain from doing things that are contrary to religion.
Then, two days before Galungan there is a Penyajaan ceremony , where Hindus have to really stabilize themselves in carrying out the ceremony. Because they will begin to be seduced by Sang Bhuta Dungulan and must be able to stabilize themselves to take a few steps towards Galungan.
The day before Galungan Day, it is known as Penampahan Galungan. In this procession, Hindus slaughter pigs as a symbol of killing the animal passions that are in humans, and are used as religious ceremonial equipment.
The day before Galungan, Balinese people will also be busy making penjor, or decorative bamboo on the side of the road. Penjor itself is made of curved bamboo sticks decorated with various materials from agricultural products, such as leaves ( plawa ), seeds ( palawija ), tubers and palagantung, such as coconut, rice, and bananas.
Penjor as a symbol of prosperity and prosperity, is made with a beautiful appearance to support the implementation of the increasingly lively Galungan Day.
It is hoped that on this Galungan day, the mind can be pure and clean, and all negative influences can be lost.

Your Pyramids of Chi team
WELCOME TO YOGA AT PYRAMIDS OF CHI!
Pyramid Power + Vinyasa Flow + Yin Yoga
Housed in the Pyramid of the Earth, overlooking terraced rice fields for as far as the eye can see on one side and our serene, meditative gardens on the other. The energy in this mostly teak and iron wood Pyramid must be felt to be believed. The space can be completely opened to the elements or safely closed with controlled temperature and surround sound stereo.
You will receive a refreshing a welcome juice on arrival, sanitised yoga mats and blocks for your session and free flow, filtered water throughout. Please, bring your own towel.
Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body.
From Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists.
The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.
Saturday’s, 9am – 10am
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time.
For beginners, it may range from two to five minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for ten minutes or more.
Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
A meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality, release deep held tension, emotion and resistance. It is a wonderful balance to a Yang (Vinyasa/Hatha) practice.
Sunday’s, 9am – 10am
We have partnered with Yoga Saraswati, Ubud to provide highly trained and experienced Indonesian instructors so you may be confident, comfortable, and safe during your session.
How was 2020 for you?
If you ask that question among a random group of people you may be surprised by the answer. For many it has been the toughest year of their lives. For others it has been an incredible year of growth with a clarity of what is important in life that they have not experienced before. One thing is for certain, it was a year for the ages…
From the bushfires in Australia and the West Coast of North America, the Black Lives Matter movement, convicting men of power for their sex crimes, Royalty declaring they are no longer Royalty, the stock market crashing while crypto currency reaches new heights, impeaching Presidents and electing new ones, the largest organised protests in recorded history in India, devastating explosions and of course the pandemic which we are all still navigating through.
Humanity is always victorious; love is the weapon.
If you are here in Bali please join us for Christmas at the Pyramids. All are welcome to our family atmosphere where we will enjoy a 3-course lunch and Ancient Sound Healing with full bellies and hearts.
We will sign off 2020 with a powerful evening combining the final Full Moon and Earth’s completion of the Sun’s orbit. The NYE Full Moon Intention Ceremony will be an evening of letting go of the old, welcoming the new, dancing, laughing, and sharing.
So, we say so-long to 2020 and thanks for the lessons. Welcome 2021, a new age, a new future full of abundance!
May the holiday season be full of joy and we look forward to welcoming you in 2021 for some exciting new events and developments.
From Peter & Lynn, Greg & Jill & the whole team!
