Serene Escape to Arizona

The Boulders, Scottsdale AZ

Arizona has a beauty that is all its own.  The cacti, the brown earth, and the arid desert air make it a unique and memorable place to visit.  There is a certain feeling of peace and serenity that permeates the fall and winter months when it is cool in the daytime and cold in the evening.  Our recent trip to The Boulders near Scottsdale was such a relaxing treat.  After visiting The Golden Door Spa there, I left with a renewed sense of balance and a growing desire to take concrete steps to live a more healthful, serene lifestyle.

In addition to the many relaxation and health resources the spa offers it also includes an organic garden where natural produce is grown.  The lovely citrus trees framing the garden and the many vegetable boxes, shown here with the majestic Boulders in the background, are both attractive and functional.

A labyrinth for meditation is also featured at the spa.  The simple lines and quiet space were very centering.
