Energy is part of the great mystery that fuels and guides our lives. At Canyon Ranch we see a complementary relationship between spirituality and energy. Many experiences of energy open our eyes to the interconnectedness of our world and a sense of deeper meaning in our lives.
By making a conscious effort to nurture spirit, we create an atmosphere for well-being to thrive. The potential for self-healing in this environment is extraordinary, and countless guests have been touched by healing experiences at Canyon Ranch.
Canyon Ranch Spa guest Michelle Grosman reflected on her Spa Connection vacation. “Before my visit, I was a pragmatic thinker and I had no patience for spiritual thinking. After experiencing the spiritual aspects of Canyon Ranch, I felt as if a door had opened to a whole new world. I realized that I could grow, improve myself and change the way I viewed the world. I learned that a spiritual moment is more than meditating and can be different for each person.”
“I tell my friends that Canyon Ranch is like looking into the ocean. You can enjoy the spa, exercise classes and the great food, but, like the ocean, there’s so much more under the surface. The lectures and workshops on spirituality and energy medicine are the jewels of the ocean.”
MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
Many Canyon Ranch practitioners and guests talk about “energy healing” or “energy consciousness.” There is strong evidence and emerging recognition in the scientific world that a subtle energy holds everything together. It is the life force within and between all things.
Energy can also be viewed as the personal force that allows you to make lasting change. It is our goal to help you strengthen and balance your energy so that you can get the most out of life, regardless of your ultimate goal. Guests are often surprised by what they discover during a visit to Canyon Ranch. “We were looking for something that complemented our intellectual interests as well as a place to relax, learn and rejuvenate,” says Linda Kartoz-Doochin, a Spa Connection guest. “We were hesitant to consider a ‘spa vacation,’ but we had heard so many wonderful stories about Canyon Ranch from friends and family that we decided to try it. It turned out to be the gift that changed our lives.”
“I experienced Healing Touch for the first time and found it so transformational that I suggested to my husband that he try it. We both loved it and immediately signed up for another session. In addition to the stimulating lectures and incredible variety of personal services and health and wellness offerings, we also attended a presentation about Healing Touch, and today, after four years of study and casework, we are Certified Healing Touch Practitioners. The skills that we learned at Canyon Ranch continue to enrich our lives … long after our first visit.”
Health has many dimensions, and some things we may not be able to change or cure, but energy and spirit allow us to heal, to grow and to tap into our spiritual potential no matter what life presents. Conscious living or life infused with energy and spirit, is simply inspired.
