Six Senses Krabey Island Experiences

Rituals

Arrival spirit

In Cambodia, there’s an ancient tradition of offering water to the sacred Bodhi tree. This tree is believed for releasing a positive and playful vibes and liberating the negativity inside us. Hence, offering water to the Bodhi tree, will enable you to connect with our island environment and adapt to the positivity nature has to offer to you. As you step from the boat onto our jetty and offering water to the Bodhi tree, we invite you to set an intention for your stay.

Water ritual

Water is universally recognized to have high significance in our lives and culture, rituals and practices. The Khmer culture embodies the calmness and serenity of water and it is believed to diligently cleanse your body, mind and spirit. Water could react to positive thoughts and words signifying which, you offered water to Bodhi tree during your arrival. Before we begin our fire ritual, it is important to cleanse our body and mind, and cultivate positivity in ourselves to release unhappy memories, fears, and negativity. Let us wash our hands and feet to commence the fire ritual with a cleansed body and positive mind.

Fire ritual

Used in many ancient traditions, a fire ceremony can release unhappy memories, fears, negative emotions or anything you are holding onto that you just want to let go. It’s pretty simple. Just use your sixth sense (your intuition) to ask your heart what is not serving you anymore than, using a twig from our forest to represent that emotion, transfer it onto the fire while breathing out. This will release the unwanted energy or emotion. Watch it burn! Then see how you feel over the coming days.

Departure spirit

During departure, you will be provided with rice grains and empty pots. You are invited to use both hands while filling the pot and pray for the well-being of the sentient beings. A local host explains how in Khmer culture, rice is considered sacred and symbolizes prosperity. This accumulated rice will be given to the monks at the Pagoda.
