Tao means “a Way”. The arts, sciences and crafts of the East were taught as a Tao, a method of self-cultivation and self-realization.
Our contemporary and limiting descriptors of Spa include: sanctuary, escape, haven, retreat, oasis, cloud nine, pampering palace, etc. These concepts capture our imagination and a facet of “spa” … there is so much more.
“Spa” is a way of life, a way of being, a path of wellness, and a method of self-cultivation and reconnection. The Tao of Spa connects us to the expansiveness of life, beauty and mystery. It is “a way” of care, appreciation, community, generosity, aspiration, awareness, connection, and wellness. The Tao of Spa connects us with the inherent healing gifts of our nature and the potency of our creative universe.
Resilience is not a luxury; resilience is the wellspring we require to sustainably flourish.
The Tao of Spa is a path of Resilience.
Now is the time to change contexts: leave behind the “spa escape” and live “spa wellness”.
