MesaStila – a Healing Retreat in the Jungle
June 13, 2012 • Spiritual Adventures
During our upcoming 11-day Meditation and Wellness Retreat in the islands of Indonesia during our spiritual adventure in September of this year we’ve included for all participants 3-days of physical wellness. With a combination of gourmet healthy meals and daily massages plus Turkish Hammam baths you’ll feel that your body is being well cared for. In addition to this I’ll be conducting classes each day to help take care of the inside of you.
So, here’s what included for those of you who have signed up:
Day 1: Traditional Massage (50 mins)
Day 2: Rose Infused Massage (50 mins)
Day 3: Plantation Massage (50 mins)
Plus daily 30 minutes Turkish Hammam steam bath (6-7pm).
With the perfect balance of ancient and contemporary healing traditions, MesaStila brings you the finest therapies from Asia and the Near East.
The Indonesian Archipelago has a long history of contact between Chinese and Arab traders, who introduced plants, herbs and spices; bringing insights from Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese and Greek medicine and Arab healing practices. The traditional Indonesian Jamu sellers are a result of these enormous influences and today these people are best described as “walking-talking pharmacies”.
Cultural traditions were adopted as the traders traversed the region and one such ritual is the Hammam. With its origins in Turkey, MesaStila is proud to house South East Asia’s only authentic Hammam, where steam bathing combines functionality with decadent cleansing rituals.
