To celebrate the new year*, and in our evolving effort to reflect what our clients wants in a spa, Osmosis began the first in a series of Vitality Programs on Thursday, February 3rd. It was an auspicious start, under a new moon, with trees and flowers just beginning to blossom after the heavy rains. At Osmosis, we believe that good health means more than simply the absence of pain or disease, it means vitality. So, as a community, guests and Osmosis staff gathered to discuss the nature of vitality: how it manifests, and how it benefits us. (Of course, we can’t have vitality without delicious food, so the evening began with some fabulous cheeses and wine, strawberries, stuffed mushrooms, and other ever so vital treats)!
Osmosis participated with local businesses to get the old Freestone water tank repaired and running to protect the charming hamlet from fire danger. Along with Wildflower Bakery and Freestone Vineyards, Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary helped do the right thing for their community. Too long the town of Freestone was at risk without adequate water supply to fight possible fires.
Dear Friends, We are excited to be hosting a very special evening for our community this Thursday night.
The première showing of “A Communal Memoir” will be held November 18th at the Occidental Center for the arts at 6:30 pm. Admission is free and donations are requested.
A complementary champagne reception including a cedar enzyme foot baths will follow at Osmosis. Please RSVP for the reception at 823-8231
FREESTONE, CA, November 4, 2010—Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, the only venue in the U.S. to offer Japanese-style cedar enzyme bath treatments, has been named “America’s Most Spiritual Spa” by the prestigious magazine, Spirituality & Health.
Japanese garden expert Robert Ketchell from England will be visiting Osmosis next week. He will be conducting a special tour of the garden on Thursday morning July 22nd at 11am.
This is Roberts first visit to the garden since it was completed in 2003. Ironically, this is also the year of the Ox and it just so happens that the Osmosis garden is based on the Chinese parable of The Ox and The Ox Herder. On the tour you will see how this story, typically shown in wood block prints, is depicted with stone, plants and water features in the Osmosis meditation garden.
