We all have nights when we struggle to fall asleep. Too many worries, a heavy dinner, noisy neighbours or perhaps too much screen time. We stare at the ceiling, and toss and turn until the alarm clock goes off. For many of us sleepless nights are a temporary nuisance. But what if you’re suffering from chronic insomnia and it stands in the way of the life you want to live? What if your lack of sleep is affecting your health, your work and your relationships?

Insomnia can have debilitating effects across all aspects of our lives. It can be the cause of stress, anxiety, irritability, lack of concentration, low energy, mood swings and might eventually lead to burnout.

If you’ve been having difficulty sleeping for a couple of months, it’s time to take some action.

Our Wellness Guide holds information on how to improve your sleeping pattern and is definitely worth checking out. However, if you’re looking for a more in-depth approach to tackle your insomnia, The Sleep Awakening Retreat in Bali is the way to go.


The Sleep Awakening is a 5-day live-in retreat (17-23 May 2018) at the luxurious COMO Shambhala Estate in Ubud. Hosted by Tristian Kelly, sleep therapist and author of Three Weeks to Better Sleep, the retreat will teach you all about the foundations of long-term quality shut-eye.

COMO Shambhala Estate Sleep Retreat

You will stay in beautiful accommodation at the tranquil COMO Shambhala Estate in Ubud, away from the hustle and bustle of the town center. Indulge in healthy meals, spa treatments, and unwind amongst the retreat’s lush green grounds. Participate in their daily activity program, exercise in the jungle gym or simply relax by your pool. You will return home refreshed, re-energised and renewed.


The retreat will also introduce you into a sleep support network, where people struggling with insomnia can share their experiences without the fear of being misunderstood. A big part in the journey to beating insomnia is simply the process of hearing stories and experiences from others who struggle with sleeping, and understanding you’re not alone. And this support network doesn’t end after the retreat, in fact, it is just the beginning.


Tristian Kelly is a sleep therapist and the author of Three Weeks to Better Sleep, and the soon-to-be-published Diary of an Insomniac. She graduated in psychology from Sydney University, and later trained as a naturopath, nutritionist, Western herbal medicine practitioner and homeopath.

Unlike most sleep therapists, treating insomnia was not a career choice for Tristian, but a matter of survival. She experienced the debilitating effects of insomnia for over 20 years. She knows exactly what it feels like to feel burnt out all the time, and how this impacts your health, your relationships, your career and your life generally. After years of study, and with her own personal self-healing triumph behind her, Tristian wanted to use her knowledge and experience to help others achieve the same outcome.
