This morning, we took a special excursion to south Bali to the compound of a High Priest and Priestess for a purification ceremony for each trip member. The most moving part for me were the high priest and priestess, an older couple who married each other late in life—the first marriage for both of them. They were radiant, lit with an inner glow.

And we were, too, after our blessing. Here are some images of what we experienced. Photos by Nancy Gertz, Laurie Schaffler, Susan Cooley, Jamey Marchese, Kimberly Hampton Nilsson.
