July 2018 Newsletter

We are halfway through 2018!

Can you believe it, only 6 months left of this year. There are many reasons why I love the month of July, firstly it’s because it’s my birthday month and secondly that on the 21st of June the winter solstice marked the shortest day of the year and that means the journey towards summer has begun! Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied across cultures, but many have held a recognition of rebirth, involving holidays, festivals, gatherings, rituals or other celebrations.

I for one am not a lover of winter, it’s not that I dislike the cold, but I would much rather cool myself down than trying to warm myself up. I am just celebrating that I made it through June in one piece. Shew! Did anyone else experience such high levels of emotion, spiralling out of control, everything-seemed-to-go-wrong kind of month? June for me was hectic personally.

It’s also that time of year, where everyone starts planning for the end of the year. Our diary already has bookings for December! It seems so far away now, although in the blink of an eye it will be here, at least I will be warm then…. Hehe but I cannot lie, winter has been good to us thus far, yes it’s chilly in the mornings and evenings, but most days reaching a high of 26 or 27 degrees, except for that one frightful morning when we arrived at the spa and our heat pump for the hot pool was completely frozen solid – another reason June was a terrible month for me 🙁

We have tried everything to get our hot pool’s temperature up again, unfortunately the solar panels are not getting 30 degree and upwards sun to sufficiently heat the water. The ambient temperature outside is too cold for a heat pump to even sufficiently heat up a swimming pool to the desirable 35 degrees and we cannot, unfortunately, leave it running through the night in case it freezes up again. We have had many complaints regarding the issue that our hot pool is not hot enough, I have done all my research and for the life of me cannot get that indoor pool higher than 25 degrees in winter and for this I would like to apologise profusely.

Well, it is July and in celebration of my birthday I have decided to put my favourite treatments on a ridiculous promotion, thank goodness it seems as it’s most of our guests favourites too according to my Facebook poll!

This past weekend I attended a Family Constellations workshop, what an experience! Yoh. Why your soul chooses your specific family and how we must always be conscious of what we allow into our lives, what we allow to be carried over from the previous generation, and how always have to consciously make decisions every single day that will benefit our own lives. I am , as I’ve said repeatedly in my newsletters, extremely grateful for my own children who chose me as their mother.

Check out our upcoming workshops by visiting our event’s page on Facebook.

I wish everyone a July filled with love and light, onwards and upwards, towards Spring!
