Reality Hits

I have my days where I’m just not wanting to leave my chair or answer the phone, only close my eyes and sleep or veg in front of the TV, even if it’s on, but I’m not half watching it.

Hello, welcome to my world, one day I feel ok and happy and the next it could be whatever, it’s not a good feeling to have at all.

I’ve been trying to push past it. Still, those horrible feelings keep coming back, so that’s why I’m doing research on Retreats, Spiritual Healing, Spa Retreats.

I’ve heard so much from my doctors and friends that I think it’s time to seek for what my body truly needs.

I’m going to do some research on different Retreats or Conferences and see if there is anything out there that I can relate to.


Let’s see what retreats are first, from the dictionary definition, “a place of refuge, seclusion, or privacy.”

To me, a Retreat would be a place you go to soul search and empty out so you can be refreshed, renewed, and filled up again, with a heart that’s full of Love, Peace, and Joy.

“Full of Life,” after all, my heart’s cry is to be set free from pain and hurt that dwells within, and a Spiritual renewal at a retreat will bring Healing to the soul.

Out of all the Retreats, these are the ones I would want to go to; Let’s check them out.

Tucson Wellness Resort / Canyon Ranch

Canyon Ranch stood out while I was researching. They offer everything on my list.

Canyon Ranch Resort Retreat is a getaway that goes beyond health and beauty.

They offer a state of well-being that lifts your spirit and brings change in your Life.

It’s a luxury resort in Tuscon, Arizona, where you can find a place to let go of everything inside.

This is the retreat your soul craves. It’s time to get away from it all and make space to concentrate on what’s really important, your health and happiness.

The Beautiful Canyon Ranch Resort is the perfect place for overall healing and relaxation in, inviting you to grow in your Life.

Canyon Ranch has an engaging experience called The Life Enhancement Center. It’s designed to provide tools for leading your healthiest and happiest Life.

The seven days, group-oriented programs concentrate on specific topics that allow you to focus more intensively on achieving and surpassing your personal goals.

History of Canyon Ranch

Canyon Ranch has been in the forefront of expanding the concept of a health resort by introducing a comprehensive professional approach.

With a staff that includes registered dieticians, board-certified physicians, exercise physiologists, licensed therapists and, other highly- skilled, caring staff in order to provide guests with every possible resource.

In 1978, Mel Zuckerman had a Life changing event, that led to him meeting an inspiring fitness expert who had him running a mile and a half within 10 days.

Mel realized he had the power to improve his health and happiness now that he had gone and learned about it at the spa retreat he had gone to.

Mel and his wife Enid, who had wanted her husband to create a health spa, knew that they needed to live in a healthy environment. So in 1979, they opened Canyon Ranch in Tucson.

Where we’ve been  

After a rocky start, Canyon Ranch became famous and, in time, extraordinarily successful – a catalyst for the national health and fitness revolution.

With their business partner Jerry Cohen, the Zuckermans opened Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Ma. in 1989 and, from 2008 to 2015, Canyon Ranch Living – Miami Beach with the adjacent Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa.

In 1999, the first Canyon Ranch Spa & Fitness day spa opened at The Venetian® Resort in Las Vegas. Canyon Ranch® At Sea launched in 2004 onboard Cunard’s Queen Mary 2®.

Today, Canyon Ranch® is on more than 20 vessels with Celebrity Cruises, Cunard, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The ultimate in healthy living experience is available at Canyon Ranch Living®, residential communities in Lexon and Tucson.

Where we’re going

The Zuckermans retired in 2017 when Mel reached age 89, and John Goff, of Goff Capital, became the new chairman and owner of Canyon Ranch in June 2017.

In 2019, Canyon Ranch expanded its wellness Resorts with the introduction of Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreats, opening in Woodside, California.

Canyon Ranch offers an assortment of choices for you to pick from to plan your retreat getaway.

You will have a customized experience picked out just for you, so you can receive everything your body needs for overall renewal and healing.

This would be a great place to check out if you need a time of renewal.

Everything is included with the price you pay, it’s all-inclusive, you’ll find the relaxation and renewal experience you desire at Canyon Ranch.

There Are Other Awesome Retreats 

There are many, many other Spiritual Retreats or Conferences to search through. In every state, you can find a great conference/retreat.

It all depends on what you’re looking for or what you are going through. Anything you may need in your Life during this season of Life your in.

You can receive a Powerful word and be renewed at a conference or retreat. You just have to let yourself open up to receive.

If you can’t get away for days at a time, find a Conference nearby and go to it; purpose in your heart you’re going and, you’re going to receive what you need.

If there is nothing going on, which is usually rare, order or go buy you a Bible Study dealing with what you’re going through or how you’re feeling.

Also, get a journal, make sure to write down your feelings, get them all out don’t hold back. The more you write down, the more it helps you.

I don’t mean writing down hateful things toward people because your mad, but what’s inside of you that needs to come out to help you.                                                                                                 Life - Live - adventure

  1. I often remind myself that our bodies is a temple therefore I am careful about what I put in my body whether it be food or even the things I allow in my mind.  With that being said I find oftentimes a spiritual retreat creates the perfect reset.  Being a resident of the Phoenix suburbs, Canyon Ranch looks very appealing to try.
