"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."

Buddha said that – and he understood better than most the link between body and mind.

But you needn't be seeking spiritual enlightenment to enjoy the benefits of a good health resort.

As well the numerous benefits – physical and mental – a few days at a good retreat can prove supremely enjoyable.

You can even head abroad to combine your spiritual replenishment with a nice exotic holiday.
