Take a break from your everyday lives for a couples’ weekend away, where you are encouraged to drop your routine to ignite the senses into unimaged places of sacred sexuality. This retreat features couples dancing into a unifying fire of communion, joy and pleasure. The Fire that Pierces the Heart retreat is held at Vedanta, a Spiritual and Holistic retreat center nestled in the mountains of Hot Springs, California. Dawn Cartwright, a Neo Tantra expert who founded the Chandra Bindu Tantra Institute in Santa Monica, California, guides participants through a framework of ancient secrets of tantric energy, designed to bring retreat guests closer.

 

Guests are introduced to the spiritual practices of tantra living, including meditation, symbolism and ritual to reach higher states of consciousness from the bedroom to the boardroom. She focuses on three ways to help participants ignite fiery love energies:

 

  • Experience More: Guests will discover five keys to surrender, unlock your emotional and spiritual pleasure centers and tap into your sexual potential and capacity for bliss.
  • Embrace the Secrets: Explore and discover the secrets of tantric energy exchanges. Cartwright shares ancient tantric secrets to bring sacred loving and divine union into all parts of your life.
  • Celebration and Integration: This process involves rituals and practices to liberate the soul. On site, a rose petal cacao ceremony and breathwork rituals invite guests to reach an unseen knowingness to allow you to take home the loving, fire-ignited Neo Tantra practices to incorporate into your everyday life.

 

Travelers can choose from two dates: Dec. 1–4 and March 30–April 2, both consisting of four days and three nights in a king suite.

Hidden Gem: Discover Istanbul’s Vibrant Balat Neighborhood

The UNESCO World Heritage neighborhood of Balat rivals İstanbul’s Old City for its historic significance, with an added splash of color. Its cobbled hilly streets boast a full rainbow of houses, cafés, restaurants and churches painted in pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues — parts even surpassing my native San Francisco’s steep, colorful corridors. The most vibrant stretch of homes, dating anywhere from 50 to 200 years old, runs along Kiremit Caddesi.

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Review

Palm Springs became a destination of legend when Hollywood’s biggest and brightest during cinema’s “Golden Age” turned the desert community into their glamourous backyard. While restaurants and hotels epitomizing definitive Palm Springs luxury open, adapt and change with the times, it says something that one of its hottest restaurants sets up an outpost back in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what chef Michael Beckman and restaurateur Joe Mourani did on the southern tip of the always-evolving Fairfax District.

Will Resort Fees Become a Thing of the Past?

Resort guests have never liked them, and now the White House and President Joe Biden plan to target them: resort fees. Whether it’s adding them on to resort amenities, like WiFi or access to the hotel gym, resort fees exist and frustrate many.

Luxuriate in London

My husband and I recently traveled to London, England, on vacation, our farthest trip since the pandemic started. We were there for longer than a week and planned to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible during our stay. Ahead of our trip, we knew we would want to mix in some relaxation, so we booked a couple’s massage at The Lanesborough’s spa halfway into our visit.
