Smart Women. Changing Everything.
Are you a woman transitioning to a new life?
WIT is your chance to learn from the women who’ve walked this path before you.
Choose the experience that works best for you.
Join our 10 week, part time course to learn from Bali’s leading changemakers, and discover your tribe.
Join our 7-day intensive to overcome the personal and practical blocks to launching the life of your dreams.
In both programs, you will be given the tools you need to fashion a life that reflects your values, and make the personal connections to really make it happen.

WIT is values driven. This is what we believe in:
WIT will connect you with some of the smartest, most empowered women in Bali’s business ecosystem, so you can learn from the people who have lived the experience you are about to embark on.
During our in-house and online sessions, you will connect with other women who are also making a change. These connections often become a lifeline… your forklift when you are down, your experts when you need advice, and your friends when you need some fun.
Your new Bali family.
Bali is renowned for being a place where you can dream big and really make things happen.
WIT supports you in the process of grounding those dreams in reality without sacrificing the vision, purpose and passion that drives you.
To do that, we explore your dreams through a number of creative exercises that will get you thinking more deeply and broadly about what you want to do. So get ready to write, move, draw and truly give life to your project.
A great conversation can change everything…especially if it is a conversation grounded in honesty, is free of judgement, and gives you the valuable feedback you need to get results you desire.
WIT uses the ‘Challenge Process’ to troubleshoot the problems as they arise and make conversations really count.
When a group of smart women are gathered in the name of GOOD, great things can happen: People’s lives improve, projects that protect the earth and its people or, lead the way into the future are born.
WIT calls on the collective wisdom of women to inspire, create and realize these amazing ideas.

Is the 10 week program right for you?
WIT helps build businesses with better bottom lines (But not the kind you might be used to).
We like products and services that improve the lives of others, because we like businesses that do good.
We support projects that benefit Bali and its people, because Bali gives us all a lot, and we like to give back.
We help you think about financial sustainability, because we like everyone to live well.
We love projects that make you love getting out of bed every day, because we like happy people.
We help you navigate the technical, legal and planning aspects of thriving in Bali’s unique business ecosystem.
The obstacles to succeeding in business are often deeply personal. That’s why we focus on the social and emotional aspects of your transition.

Escape Coach at Screw The Cubicle
After leaving her six figure job in Canada years ago in pursuit of a path less conventional, this had led her to now be an advocate for location independency, and meaningful work with purpose.
Now based in Bali, she spends her time teaching people how to quit the jobs that are crushing their souls, discover their hidden talents, and make money doing something they love (and will care about).
Her mission and work has been featured on The Telegraph, Forbes, The Huffington Post, CNN Philippines, and Elle Canada.
Co-author of Balinese Dance, Drama and Music, founder of the comedy group Group Gedebong Goyang
Rucina has lived in Bali since 1974. She first came here to study dance and theatre, has co-written a book Balinese Dance, Drama and Music, and is the founder of the comedy Group Gedebong Goyang. Working as a cultural tour guide, she leads university groups into the amazing maze of Bali and for the past 15 years has been in the NGO world.
Currently she is building a vocational training center in North Bali for the economically marginalized. With her late Balinese husband, she was the head of her banjar (hamlet), probably the only Westerner to hold this position.
Hubud - our location
WIT is powered by the team @ Hubud, Bali’s first community coworking space, recently voted ‘One of the 10 best coworking spaces on earth” by Forbes Magazine.
Hubud is dedicated to supporting the people and projects that are making a difference on the island of Bali.
WIT follows a curriculum that is partly curated, and partly responsive. That means we aim to share what we already know will be of value, but try to be responsive to the needs and desires of the group as they emerge.
We talk about taboos, in a confidential and deeply supported way, so that you can...
- Explore your passion and purpose, and whether you can turn them into profit.
- learn to give it, and receive feedback.
- how to resolve conflict, with others, and within yourself.
- What self-care really is.
- How to connect to your community.
- Why money matters, and what really counts.
- How to break through the blocks that may prevent your successful transition to a life you really believe in.
WIT is an intensive experience. Days begin with movement, and end with evening activities.
By joining the WIT tribe you commit to the values of Community, Creativity, Conversation and Consciousness.
But as with any learning program, WIT is what you make of it. The more time you spend putting the lessons, tools and concepts you learn and make to work, the better your results will be.
No! WIT will be of benefit to anyone in a work-life transition, however, you will need to be on island for at least the duration of the course to get the most out of the program. The projects and businesses selected can be run either on or from the island.
Once you fill out our registration form, you will be contacted for an interview with one of our main facilitators. In the interview, you will learn more about the program, and together, you will determine whether it's a good fit for you.
Because women are awesome! :-) Women face unique challenges and opportunities in the business world, and we find that women progress further and faster when they are supporting each other.
How many participants will there be in the program?
The maximum number of participants is 20. It's intimate, and every woman will have voice.
We have endeavoured to offer WIT at the most affordable rate possible. The current pricing is our gift to pioneer participants, and to Bali. (Other countries, in which our facilitators have both trained and taught, offer a similar program for between 18-30 thousand US dollars). So at this time, there is no official financial aid for this program, but we encourage you to look for sponsors who might be willing to fund you.
Sounds like my kind of program!

The WIT 7 day intensive is designed to give women the time and space they need to explore, in a deeply supported way, the challenges that may be preventing them from living the life they have always dreamed of.
Our skilled facilitators are experts in tackling taboos. Together, they will help you discover:
Your personal calling
What matters most to you and how to make it happen.
What your relationship to money, food, and sexuality has to do with your self actualization.
How your conflict style may be compromising your relationships.
What self care really means, and how to make it easier.
WIT helps you build a toolbox for personal resilience while you enjoy the fresh food, fresh air, and fresh perspective that only a retreat can bring.
WIT intensives are offered in Bali, and around the world, upon request.Enroll now
