Six Senses looks at all-round wellness. Take the programmes at two of it lovely resorts. 40 minutes’ drive from Istanbul, SIX SENSES KAPLANKAYA has Harvest Kaplankaya, 10-14 May 10 to 14, to rediscover human connection, discuss global issues, and celebrate human potential. This year’s theme focuses on forging “radical hope”. The four-day event is apparently rich in fascinating talks, hands-on workshops, nourishing gastronomy, and moving performances. Where does one come from and where does one go from here to identify what in past+present can hope for a brighter future that is durable enough to counter setbacks, and powerful enough to overcome what might seem impossible odds?
Girlahead would also suggest that time should be taken for a serious hour-long hike up the near-vertical path behind the hotel to it sky-high spa, and back down again.
In Spain, SIX SENSES IBIZA hosts Taryn Toomey, founder of The Class, 3-7 May. She will lead what is called The Class Retreatment, to balance body, soothe the soul, and clear the mind. Movements are medicine. In between mat workouts there are Crystal cove walks, Alchemy Bar workshops, communal meals, and evening bonfires. Stay on-island, or come back again for Marisa Peer’s Mastermind Your Life in Three Easy Steps, 25-28 May. Pioneering Rapid Transformational Therapy will combine effective hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP, CBT, neuroscience, and metroplasty. Develop a healthy relationship with food, diet, and exercise.
