I've traveled all over the world researching and putting together videos for the ABC travel show I've been hosting for the last couple of years, but, on one recent trip, I didn't just find a fascinating destination, I got a much needed life reboot.
Several years ago, a stressed out friend told me about a life changing trip she took to Miraval Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona, so when my producer asked me about doing something on a wellness retreat, something healthy and empowering, I knew just where we needed to go.
But before we started the cameras rolling I signed up for several Miraval experiences so I could really understand what this place was all about and in the process ended up learning a lot about myself.
I quickly found out that at Miraval it is all about living in the moment, taking time to work on the things in your life that need working on and clearing your mind and your heart so you can keep following your dreams even when you're faced with giant roadblocks.
Some of my favorite experiences are highlighted in the ABC Travel Now videos below and include:
• The Swing & a Prayer (Where letting go has never felt so good!)
• Equine Experience with Wyatt Webb (Thank you, Wyatt! I now "get it".)
• Astrology Reading with Carolyn Crawford (So cool!)
• Sand & Spirit with Anne Parker (New awareness is priceless!)
• Ginger Healer Spa Treatment (Loved this spa & all the treatments I had)
• Spirit Flight (Amazing what I learned here! A life changer)
For more, check out our ABC Travel Now show featuring Miraval highlighted in the two videos below. Turns out my stressed out friend was right, Miraval really can change lives! Turns out she's not so stressed out anymore and either am I!
