In the coming and going of this magical journey we call life, we often turn away from ourselves and the moments to relax are more and more rare. Without doubt, when going to a spa, one is looking for relax and having a time away from the routine, but in Makawe there is lot more as it is a unique place amid the mountain.
Upon entering Makawé, there is a scent of sweet and wooden spices floating in the air and with each breath a journey to an inner world of peace begins. Almost without realizing, one surrenders to the warm and friendly smile of the staff in charge of Makawé. The Therapist recommended a Relaxation Ritual and it was like she could read my mind, knowing how my body felt and how stressed I was.
It was impossible not to succumb to the expert hands of my therapist, getting carried away by a whirlwind of sensations and fragrances, to enter a magical relaxation, in touch with my spiritual essence. It was hard to believe that I was in such a state of relaxation . . . the most skeptical man totally surrendered to peace and serenity (absolutely unplugged). Once in the resting area, I reveled in the songs of birds, savouring the herbal tea that was already waiting in my chaise lounge, I could marvel at the colors of nature that embraces Makawe while feeling, on the sole of my feet, the textures of river stones in the sensations pool.
All my senses were awake and my mind, away from the worries, was more open to the small wonders that were surrounding me. Now I understand when they say that, in Makawé Spa one can really plunge in the art of doing nothing, the essence of peace, in the serenity of being just with oneself.
