Recently we had the fortune to experience a stay at one of Puerto Rico’s premier wellness retreats, Casa Alternavida. The name roughly translates to house of the alternative life because they believe you can balance life, work, and everything about yourself in healthier, alternative ways. Leo Tolstoy’s 1877 novel Anna Karenina begins- “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The same is true for balanced, happy lives, and there’s no escaping it because everything is connected if you believe in a holistic philosophy.
Believe it or not, the way you brush your teeth is connected to your deepest hopes, fears, and desires. This realization is terrifying and liberating at the same time because you don’t have to jump into the depths of your soul to explore what’s keeping you from reaching your goals. You could map your psyche with a deep exploration of your oral hygiene, although that’s both hard and tedious. Instead, Casa Alternavida creates spaces and moments for discovery with healthy living and reconnecting to nature in a fun and beautiful setting.
Join us as we take you through a day at Casa Alternavida to see how they help facilitate quieting the clutter in your mind, create opportunities for enlightenment, and offer insights to help unravel those unconscious commitments and personal stories holding you back.
