Desa Visesa works to spread and support green practices and connection to animals and nature both through its activities, workshops and seminars for guests. Start your day with animal caring at the South Permaculture area. Feel like a real Balinese villager collecting duck eggs, feeding and caring after cute ponies, or cows or any other home animals that they have in Desa Visesa’s little village. You can also participate in traditional Balinese permaculture activities such as ploughing, cultivating, seeding and nursery, planting, maintaining, harvesting and so on. Then, you are given the opportunity to even eat the food cultivated from the earth upon which you stand, share the joy of life with the community, connect and smile with local people, as a global-family.
When you are in Bali, you will see so many offerings being placed all over the island. The little pallets of offerings on the island take so many different forms and are one of the first things you feel in love with wandering the streets of Ubud. Philosophically speaking, the making and giving of banten is a selfless act; a kind of self-sacrifice. It is part-meditation, part-escape from the humdrum buzz of everyday life; it’s a gift of gratitude to the Maker, and a supplication to the lower spirits that they do not disturb the living. In Desa Visesa you have a chance to learn how to make offerings, to understand the local culture better and to see the real offering procession that is done daily in the resort.
Balinese dance culture incorporates ancient Hindu traditions with drama that tell stories through dance and music. Dances can represent how the character from Hindu scripture fights demons and evil spirits. You can enjoy a real theatrical show called Balinese Living Arts offered by Desa Visesa at one of the spectacular locations.
Balinese Living Arts is a pioneering approach to contemporary theatre, elements of fine art and ritual communicate combine to communicate the extensive and intensive role artistic refinement plays in the daily life of the Balinese. Each remarkable performance ends with the audience and artists gathering together on stage, reflecting the age-old generosity of the Balinese who eagerly share their rich culture with Island visitors.
To conclude your marvelous experience in the resort, enjoy a walk on the Ubud’s small charming streets, accompanied by a few monkeys next to the Monkey forest. This is just enough to simply fall for this Balinese gem called Desa Visesa.
