The bath can be the one oasis of pleasure and solitude that’s always at your fingertips. It can be a time of tranquil refreshment in this frenetic, evermore demanding world.
This book is written to tell you about the extraordinary possibilities for healing, pleasure, beauty, and spiritual growths that baths can provide. Over the centuries, people of wisdom have divined many secrets surrounding the ritual of bathing. There are baths to soothe the emotions, baths to heal illness, and baths to rejuvenate. There are baths with metaphysical properties that can cleanse the aura, open the intuition, clear away negativity, and help the spirit soar.
Come with me on a watery journey of enlightenment to discover the sensual, spiritual, and sybaritic pleasures waiting in your bathtub. I invite you to learn to make a self-indulgent ritual of what may have seemed, up to now, an ordinary, everyday necessity. Once you’ve let yourself drift into this world of ritual bathing, you may find that your mind eddies out far beyond the bathtub, into the great cosmic ebb and flow of the universe.
