4. Rituals for Transformation

An experience for those in transitional phases of life, this experience helps guests move forward with clarity thanks to meditation, visualization and journaling practices. 

5. Plant Spirit Journey

Guests learn about the spiritual and emotional healing properties of different botanicals, including rose, mugwort, nettle, cacao, dandelion and chamomile. Therapists can also recommend plants that are abundant and in season.

6. Sexual Embodiment

Shou Sugi Ban House offers two rituals for women's sexual well-being. The Embodied Feminine helps guests connect with their desired and clear energy blockages. Exercises and treatments allow them to channel their inner harmony. The Sensual Lover is an activation that gives women tools and wisdom to own their desire and banish their inner critic. This allows them to focus on their own "erotic self-care."
