Dear Readers, earlier this month my husband, Ted, and I visited Eureka Springs, Arkansas, during our annual anniversary vacation trip. My pal, author and radio show host Shelly Wilson, lives about two hours from Eureka Springs and said she would drive over to meet us for lunch. Before we ate, Shelly gave us a tour of the town, and she insisted that we stop in at Suchness Spa—she very much wanted me to meet Cat Bernstein, the owner and developer of Suchness, whom Shelly credits with helping her to first open up spiritually. How could I resist?
Upon walking into the Spa and looking into Cat’s soulful eyes I knew that I was in a very special place; and then Shelly announced that she was making arrangements for Cat to give me one of her signature treatments, Crown Chakra Lightwork, later that day. What an amazing gift, and while I had no time to investigate ahead of time what this treatment entailed, I can tell you that it was amazing; and upon reflection, I can share that afterwards I felt that I had re-connected with my soul, with the entity that I am on an energy level.
Cat gently massaged my neck and face in such a way that I immediately felt all the stress and tension of the world slip away and it seemed to me that I was surrounded by the most positive of energy and floating in a warm and wonderful place. Afterward, I wanted to just sit and revel in the vibrational field I knew she had created around me, and I truly felt like I could feel my vibrational level being raised. I didn’t want to get up off the table! Later that day, I went to the website for Suchness Spa to find the description for this treatment, excerpts of which you will find below, and I was surprised to see how much of what I had experienced is included in the online description:
- Honoring the presences of the light within all…subtle touch rooted in spiritual traditions opens the energetic field, allowing the body to breathe the current of this life-creating change.
- [Is your mind] calling you again to contact the Deeper Wisdom of your original matrix? To restoration of your natural wisdom? … Breaking through the illusions fabricated by reactive stress, the Crown Chakra Lightwork® Spa Ritual beckons us to release negativity through a profound reconciliation of body wisdom and the natural mind
- Subtle, gentle, non-invasive ~ release of negativity~ Within becomes still ~ senses reawaken Donning the Crown of perfection allowing a journey back to our original Self
If you are ever in Eureka Springs, stop in and check out the Suchness Spa. Cat has several other signature services such as the Thai Herbal Steam and Lotus Shower, relaxing and meditative cocoon treatments, and special energy rituals, along with standard spa services (which I am sure are quite invigorating with Cat’s energy as the catalyst!). She even offers tarot card readings which focus on our spiritual evolution. Namaste.
Suchness Spa is located in the historic New Orleans Hotel on Spring Street in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. For more information about the spa and Cat Bernstein, please visit her website at www.suchnessspa.com; email Cat at email@example.com; or call the spa at 479-253-2828.
