MY BEGINNER'S MIND

Shortly after Canyon Ranch opened, a dear friend told me that our programming should always allow guests to bring their "beginner's mind." This is a Zen Buddhist concept called shoshin. With a beginner's mind we have endless possibilities (thus the Power of Possibility!), while the expert mind – with its opinions and preconceptions – has limitations. We have continued to evolve Canyon Ranch always with that concept in mind, perpetuating a place where people can have fresh, meaningful experiences every time they come.

CULTIVATING THE BEGINNER'S MIND

Children rush joyously into every experience, simply enjoying the now-ness of it. No reservations, no expectations or fear of failure – just zest for living. You can't stop time – but you can recapture that freshness you brought to life when there was no such thing as "What if I can't?"

IN THIS MOMENT

I was walking across the Ranch in Tucson recently and noticed a group of buildings that looked different somehow. I honestly couldn't recall anything we'd changed recently. Then it dawned on me – I'd been seeing these buildings for 33 years but hadn't really looked at them in ages. It made me aware of how they might appear to a first-time guest.

HOLISTIC APPROACH WAS KEY TO WEIGHT LOSS

Ken and Nancy Arlen can pinpoint their Aha! moment in the Canyon Ranch Weight Loss Program. Weight loss and lifestyle change began when a Resting Metabolic Rate test showed them how many calories each burned in a day. They learned how to use that knowledge to assess how much they needed to eat and exercise to lose or maintain weight. "That was a light bulb that went on," says Nancy.

YOUR HEALTHIEST SUMMER GLOW STARTS FROM WITHIN

Are you ready for summer? You know – that time of year when you run out of excuses to hide behind those layers of outerwear and are forced to give up the goods. When called upon to flash the flesh at the beach and poolside, you'll want your skin to look its best. Summer has its own set of rules when it comes to keeping skin healthy and hydrated, says Laura Hittleman, Canyon Ranch Corporate Beauty Services Director.

FIRST THERE WAS FIRE

You're stranded on a remote island and can choose one companion to help out. Will it be the brainiac scientist who can program a robotic rover to explore Mars and actually understands how TV works, or would you choose a member of the no-tech South Seas tribe that escaped the 2004 tsunami simply by observing the ocean?

MINDFUL MEDICINE

Being a good physician means being part scientist, part detective and always a careful observer. Case in point: Katie, a young woman with a history of underactive thyroid, consulted Cindy Geyer, M.D., with a list of troubling symptoms. Dr. Geyer, Medical Director at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, put on her Sherlock Holmes hat and went to work.

CULINARY DISCOVERIES & FRESH TASTES

Try to imagine all the edibles that exist in the world, from dandelion tea to ostrich eggs and cheeseburgers with jalapeño sauce. Out of the endless choices, most of us stick to a limited range based on taste, availability and habit. On top of that, there are the foods we simply don't like; yet can you even remember the first time you tasted your most-hated food, made a face, and never looked back?
