In think Esalen and Breighton Bush are two of the most sensuous places in the States. They have amazing old-growth forests and meditation rooms that are so exquisite that even my restless thoughts want to stay.
But I think what launches the sensuality factor off the charts is that they both have outdoor hot springs where bathing suits are optional.
I LOVE this.
I love how it encourages me to steep deeply in the awareness that my body is a gift to be cherished and how the cultural norm of comparing it to unachievable standards starts to melt away.
I love the relaxation and confidence that results and how comfortable I feel in my own skin.
I love the openness it brings to these communities, the trust it fosters, so when we are all dressed and gathered to dine, there’s this sacred intimacy that allows us to share deeply over our organic greens and quinoa.
And that, to me, is ultimately sexy.
