PRANA BALI offers solutions for “dis-ease”, whose roots have many possible sources such as: trauma, physical dependence, over exertion, lack of boundaries, abuse or dysfunctional life-styles. 

These root causes may manifest in a multitude of symptoms that create an imbalance or dis-ease.
At PRANA BALI we treat the root of the issue, a type of spiritual surgery.


Addiction develops when a person begins to turn, consistently and habitually, to something outside of themselves – such as a behavior, substance or belief – to alleviate inner feelings of un-ease. These can range from mild discontent, irritability and anxiety, to an intense sense of emptiness, depression, self-hatred and more. At some point in time, the person displaying addictive tendencies reaches a tipping point, a threshold beyond which their behavior pattern goes beyond the limits of their conscious control, becomes largely involuntary, and plays itself out against the will of the individual, with increasingly detrimental consequences. The person is then trapped in a repetitive pattern of automatic response and default behavior, in many cases reaching a state close to insanity, with insanity defined here as repeating the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

Identifying your root cause of

Addiction and its derivatives can manifest in many different ways – a number of which are listed below. However, the causes of substance abuse and addictive behavior are not rooted in the substances or behaviors themselves. Identifying the underlying issues can be a difficult and gradual process that varies in duration and complexity depending on the individual.

Realm of the Hungry Ghosts

The Realm of the Hungry Ghosts originates in the Buddhist Wheel of Life over 2,000 years ago. It is the iconic representation of addiction and a valuable reference in the PRANA BALI recovery process.

Dr. Gabor Mate is one of the foremost experts on addiction in the world today, and author of the book, “In The Realm of the Hungry Ghosts”. The book draws its title from the name of one of six Buddhist realms, through which, in Buddhist belief, Beings must ascend before they reach liberation. The Hungry Ghost realm is characterized by the fact that its inhabitants, while desperately craving nourishment, are unable to satisfy their hunger because their necks are so narrow they cannot let food pass. These unfortunate creatures are a fitting metaphor for those suffering people who, likewise, can never find the lasting relief from discomfort they desire, nor fill the void (emotional or spiritual) they experience within, because they attempt to do this using things outside of themselves – substances and the distractions the world can offer – none of which can, of course, offer more than temporary relief from their pain.
