Like a bath?

Then this is a must read. The author has combined healing, meditation, spirituality and wellbeing into the space of an hour's bathing.

I can't recommend this highly enough. Reclaim your inner peace and make a sacred space in your life with a few simple tools, this time next year you'll be glad you did.

I regularly incorporate baths into my spiritual and self-care practices, and I was excited to get ideas from this book to freshen up my routine. Ugh, what a disappointment!

Dr. Sherman EXPLAINS the process to her readers, dipping into the history and culture of this practice over centuries and around the world. She also gives excellent instruction on why these processes are involved: meditation, preparing the space, setting up your bath area with ritual intention, and even journaling about your experiences afterward.

That’s my favorite part. I’m a strong advocate for journaling and the fact that she mentions and encourages that made me giddy with delight in talking
