Welcome to the World Encounter on Bali

February 26 - March 3, 2018

We loved organising the IBF European Biodanza Congress in 2016.... We danced with 1000 people coming from Europe, Chile, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Israel, Australia, Japan, Argentina, USA, Canada, Colombia, New Zealand, Nigeria...... a total of 38 countries. We connected people from all over the world and therefor we love to organise another event to dance with the world....


Reinder chose an area with not many Biodanza (events) yet.....the Asia Pacific.....and he chose Bali  as location for the Biodanza World Encounter in February 2018. The theme is "Connect to our Soul".

Opening vivencia at the IBF European Biodanza Congress in 2016

People from Europe, Australia and Japan are already excited to come and dance with you in Bali. You are invited too! We can host 250-300 people, and all nationalities are welcome! In the near future you'll receive more information, so leave your name and email address.

Beautiful Programme - "Connect to our Soul"

The hotel and Bali breathe "Soul", so we will aim to deliver a "6-Day Vivencia"  with beautiful (series of two parallel given) vivencias in which we'll "Connect to our Soul".  An international team of Biodanza facilitators will lead the "6 Day vivencia". We already have IBF school directors and didactic facilitators coming from Asia, Australia and Europe. Confirmed are:

  • Reinder Schonewille -  The Netherlands
  • Naoko Tsutsui - IBF School Director, Japan
  • Kate Clement - IBF School Director, Australia
  • Catherine Borgeaud - IBF School Director, Australia
  • Unni Heim - IBF School Director, Norway
  • Ricardo Toro Duran - IBF School Director, Belgium/France
  • Véronique Hustin - Belgium/France

During the World Encounter we'll have a tourist information booth available where you can book your (afternoon) trips or book your trips and transfers after the World Encounter. You can visit the (water) temples, Tanah Lot or enjoy the rivers and waterfalls.

Hotel and location

We found a beautiful hotel in the spiritual center of Bali, near Ubud. Do not expect a Grand Hyatt or other luxurious hotel....but envision a very traditional style Balinese hotel. We reserved rooms in the "The Mansion Baliwood Resort Hotel and Spa"  with beautiful pools and gardens. The place has a nice tranquil "Zen atmosphere". When you reserve your hotel rooms quickly, we can have the whole hotel for ourselves.


The hotel is developed like a little village and offers different room options. Ubud is 15 minutes by shuttlebus and you can walk in the nearby rice fields. This hotel is the perfect place for relaxing, dancing, walking and a perfect retreat with fellow Biodanceros from around the world.
