As a chaotic 2020 comes to a close, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will “turn down the volume” across its global spas with its annual Silent Night on Dec. 9. In addition to the standard wellness menu, the spas will offer mindful treatments, including guided meditation, signing bowl experiences and deep sleep practices. Talking and music will cease in the spas at 5 p.m. to help instill a sense of peace and allow for individual contemplation.
Some of the offered programming, in addition to in-spa offerings, include a live, guided meditation session at 4:30 p.m. EST at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan; an in-person meditation session with Modern OM on Brickell Beach at Mandarin Oriental, Miami; and a virtual event showcasing a Rad Roller mind and body recovery using meditation, movement and massage at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.
On social media, @mo_hotels, the hotel group will celebrate each week leading up to Silent Night with interviews with Mindfulness & Behavioral Change Coach Andrew Johnson, followed by guided meditation sessions. One will be held today, Nov. 25, and on Dec. 2.
