Nusa Lembongan Testimonials
In 2020 The Flow Centre gathered together flow enthusiasts, experts, entrepreneurs, athletes or other professional performers. Here’s what they had to say about their experience….
“Even after thinking about and training in flow for the last 3 years I learnt so much from this retreat about how to find flow, how to teach flow and about all the barriers to accessing flow I still have left to manage inside myself. I left this retreat feeling more inspired to talk about, teach and find flow than ever before. It was great to discuss flow with like minded individuals who started the retreat as strangers and left as great friends. Not only did we get into the nitty gritty concepts surrounding flow, we also learnt a lot about our deeper selves in a way I hadn’t expected.” – Hazel Findlay
“The flow retreat was an immersive and transformational experience. I have learnt so much more about Flow and how it can be applied to many different situations and areas of business, education, sports and life in general. The most important aspect I found was to meet other professionals who are using flow and sharing ideas with practical methods to hack into flow as well as overcome the challenges that we may face along the way. I have left inspired and can’t wait to meet with everyone again. This is a fantastic way to be part of a worldwide community of like-minded people who want to make a positive impact in the world.” – Carola Poblete
“The Nusa Lembongan retreat has been a life changing experience for me. To be together with like-minded and very kind people to talk a lot about flow and being deeply connected and to feel deep flow during these days was really special to me. Besides the newest insights on Flow given by many interesting experts in flow (sports, education and business) I (and others) also had the opportunity to pitch a new idea on the subject of Flow. So it was a lot about sharing and there really was a growth mindset. All of this was very well guided by Cameron and the rest of the Flow team who did a great job. And let’s not forget to mention the very inspiring environment of the island and the luxury settings . We even swam with Manta Rays! Bali gives you that extra special feeling of deep connection with each other and of course the early morning yoga sessions near the pool were extra helpful to get into the right state of mind for the rest of the day. Now back in (rainy) Holland I realize even more how special these days were and I can’t wait to see all these lovely and understanding people on the next retreat again! Let it Flow!” – Govert Semeijns
“The Flow Retreat was a great experience. I learned a lot about the integration of flow in different areas. For example, flow in climbing and flow in education. I also learnt about the newest neuroscience on flow. We did a lot of exercises to really integrate all the flow skills we learned, with a nice group of like minded people. Everyone was open, real and wanted to give to each other. Together we created a real flow experience on a beautiful location. Thank you for this great experience and the next time I will be there for sure.” – Martijn Leonard
“Cameron organised such a special, engaging and fun space to come together and learn. The retreat was jam-packed with content, including the latest science on Flow, what the flow centre offers and we also explored the application of helping others find flow in different contexts. The content was delivered by multiple people who are experts in their respective fields from sport to education, all seeking to help clients find optimal performance and peak experience through flow. I felt extremely inspired and empowered to take action after deep and meaningful lunchtime conversations in between more formal teachings. As a young woman starting my career in the psychology field, I really felt like this was a perfect way to gain mentors and some guidance for a career path and life in general. As for connection, we had such a lovely group who mixed and mingled perfectly. We had an age range of 50 years, four different countries and males and females. Everyone was positive, open minded and friendly, with a deep love of learning in an area of interest. It’s such a blessing to gain a sense of unity from such a diverse group in such a short amount of time where strangers become friends! Also, I have an immense appreciation for the beautiful surroundings of Nusa Lembongan. The visibility in the water for snorkelling and diving was the clearest I have ever seen. The villa amenities were exquisite, the catamaran was so much fun and we were able to get to our surf and dive spots with ease. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English and made the place a home.” – Jess Stout
The retreat is collaborative by nature. There’s no teacher/student vibe, just a group of like-minded enthusiasts wanting to make meaning in the world. It will be fun and intense.
Join us for some early morning active sessions and workshops throughout the day. We will hear interesting research, practical ways to find flow, and transformative practices that will add value to your life.
If relevant you can pitch an idea, share your expertise, or simply join an amazing community. This gathering is a rarity, so we hope you make the most of it.
General wear is whatever you feel comfortable with. Most will be wearing relaxed beach wear. For the opening dinner (2nd night), the theme is ‘White and Bright’. For the closing dinner the theme is ‘Undeniably Me’.
We operate these sessions with the following approach, and we hope you bring them too:
- Growth mindset not fixed mindset
- ‘Yes..and’ rather than a ‘No..but’ philosophy
- Respect for all the crew
- Confidentiality in all workshops

...the sessions have been a big eye opener, and exceeded my expectations. They have really helped to focus me and give me some new insights. Thank you for your kindness and life changing sessions...Kristy
Since returning from USA to compete in Australia's national league, I've struggled with my speed and performance. Thank for helping back to my best :-)Anonymous
Just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed working with Cam. The idea of Flow was certainly new to me. Flow more think less, probably not what I expected when I booked my first session. Working with FLOW has improved not only my personal performance but also the way I coach others. Thanks Cam I would definitely recommend you to anyone seeking improved performance.Tony Eldridge
I love it when I can share quality time with like minded people and hear inspiring stories from them all. The first Flow Centre weekend had it all, from great accommodation, location and food to friendship, adventure and more than interesting conversations with many who came from different cultures and diverse backgrounds and shared their dreams and experiences.Carola Pablote
It was a great weekend shared with likeminded successful people talking about big topics. The concept of Flow is important for us all as we go about building our businesses and our pursuing our sporting and leisure interests.David Pettit
I have returned from The Flow Centre weekend retreat feeling motivated and ready to take my business to the next level. I expected to come out of it with more direction for my businesses but of course I came out of it with more direction about life in general.Antonia Taylor
Awesome experience I feel privileged to have been invited to participate in the Flow workshop in Gracetown over the weekend of the 5th-6th of July. I met some awesome people and had the best time as we shared our life experiences and discussed our hopes and plans for our journeys ahead. The positivity was totally uplifting, and as we delved deeper into the concept of Flow to reach our true potential it felt that as a group we all rose up and moved a step closer towards that pure thing that we are all seeking. Highly recommended!Clayton Perry
When to Arrive?
You will need to fly in to Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia (airport code = DPS). Then take the ferry from Sanur over to Nusa Lembongan. See https://www.skyscanner.com.au/
The event is 3 evenings and 2 days: the night of the 15th, and all day 16th and 17th of January (Wednesday 6pm to Friday evening). We recommend you arrive in Bali on the 14th or before, stay the night somewhere near Sanur, at the airport, or venture to Ubud.<
On the 15th take the boat over to Nusa Lembongan, from North Port at Sanur (on JL Hang Tuah – Road), so you can arrive and settle into your accommodation prior to the dinner. We recommend using http://www.rockyfastcruise.com/ or http://www.scootcruise.com/time-table/ for the ferry ($50 return). They will pick you up from your accommodation in Bali if requested.
What To Bring
- Wetsuits, surfboards, pens , paper, heart and mind.
- 5 minute presentation of yourself

- Cash (no ATMs on island – not many places take card)
There will be an opportunity for a few interested people to do longer presentations on specific subjects (their business, career, flow project) to raise awareness, encourage collaboration and get feedback.
Have a think about what roadblocks, help, or collaborations you need to enter flow more frequently, so we can go into them within the sessions. Don’t hold back – the more authentic and engaged we are, the more we all get from the event.
