Our last installment of our Luxury Wellness Getaway Series (you can start at the beginning of the world-wide tour here
) brings us back home to Canada because of course, often one doesn’t need to travel the globe in search of yourself – the answer may well be just down the road. Just two-and-a-half hours of scenic drive away from Toronto or Ottawa, perched on the edge of Chalice Lake in Bancroft, Ontario, Grail Springs is Canada’s finest well-being resort.
Quoted on its website as being akin to “Disneyland for the soul”, Grail Springs offers a range of packages that combine stunning accommodation with wellbeing workshops, nature tours, a set menu based on specific diets and the chance to experience yoga, mantra and healing tonics and elixirs.
The resort’s philosophy is based around a seven-step approach. Assess Thyself, Cleanse, Nourish, Breath, Movement, Mindfulness and Support are each stages on the road to recovery from the stresses put upon us all by the rigours of modern life. On top of this, guests are treated to a complimentary Bioenergy consultation, which focuses on tapping into the energy that surrounds every living thing, a science that originated in 1930s Russia via the philosophy of Seymon Kirlian.
Through the course of the 10-night programme, chakras are rebalanced and the body is cleansed to ensure positivity inside and out. Prices for the treatment packages begin at around CA$385, and a variety of specifications are on offer – from a two- to five-day juice cleanse all the way up to the all-inclusive Grail Experience, which can last up to 21 nights and combats chronic exhaustion, aches, pains, stress and grief.
From Canada to Koh Kood Island, why not take the first steps to forgetting the chemicals, commutes and constant worry of day-to-day existence, immerse yourself in everything the natural world has to offer, and find out more about yourself than you could ever imagine.
