As we find ourselves in the heart of autumn, steadily moving towards winter, daylight shortens while nights extend. It’s a period where you might notice how our inner rhythms mirror the natural cycle of seasons.
Our inner and outer climates are very connected. So how can we best honor them both? As plants descend towards their roots, you are invited to do the same. This is nature’s invitation to slow down and tend to your well-being. This may look like prioritizing time and space to connect with your breath and body. It may look like focusing on your internal state and well-being. How can you enhance this turn inwards?
If you’re looking for a restorative experience for yourself or a loved one, explore the opportunity to both give and receive the gift relaxation and care at the Durham Salt Cave. We offer a sliding scale, see website for more details.
We invite you into the cave, into a Salt & Sound Experience (our signature offering) where you will be ushered into this internal space, supported in your journey towards rest and well-being. Let the sounds and vibrations regulate your body’s rhythms, and the salts clear your body as you feel your weightlessness in our zero gravity loungers.
Sink in, and revel in the gift of slowing down.
