Former Buddhist monk becomes wellness mentor at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan

A former Buddhist monk, Ibu Fera, has been appointed as Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan’s new resident wellness mentor and is already "shifting the vibration of the resort," according to the group director of spa for Four Seasons, Luisa Anderson.

Fera, who studied the Dharma in monasteries across Asia, will lead two meditation classes per day at the resort's The Sacred River Spa. She will also host a series of five life talks each week. The life talks have the following titles: The Secret to Happiness; Love and Compassion; Finding Inner Peace; and Managing Stress.

“Meditation and mindfulness is a very realistic way of addressing all sorts of stresses,” said Fera. “It’s a free, easily accessible method that goes straight to the root of the problem.”

Her meditation classes cover the introductory principles on how to focus and maintain practice, how to achieve present moment awareness and techniques to calm the body and mind.



Located in the jungle greenery in the Ayung River valley, the 60-key property – with its three restaurants and seven hectares of gardens and paddies – has benefited from Fera’s presence, according to regional director of spa for Four Seasons, Luisa Anderson.



“After only a few classes, Fera is already shifting the vibration of the resort,” said Anderson. “We’ve had excellent feedback from guests who have commented on how much she has ‘inspired’ them. There are so many stages and levels to wellness that can be achieved and advanced across body, mind, spirit and soul. Fera completes our wellness equation by helping guests to understand and develop emotional and spiritual intelligence – sharing with them the potential to ‘wake-up’ and to experience more peace.”
