Every stay starts with a one-on-one consultation with the in-house Ayurvedic specialist. The session aims to assess your appetite, sleeping patterns, blood pressure and respiration - and pretty much every aspect of what constitutes your health and wellbeing. At this point, you’ll come face to face with the consequences of your Western diet and lifestyle, so prepare yourself for some a bit of an epiphany. The team at Barberyn Beach Weligama recommend that guests stay a week minimum, in order to fully relax and reset. As a reviewer, I only managed to visit the resort for 48 hours, to get an overview rather than an in-depth experience. But by the end of my express cure, I came to the same conclusion as them: to fully reap the benefits of Ayurveda - which translates as "knowledge of life" - and see real change occur, it’s ideal to book between seven to twenty-one consecutive days. A complete health reboot Coffee, wifi, alcohol,...forget about it, they are all stimulants. You … [Read more...] about Eco-resort: Ayurveda by the beach
World acupuncture day
Bill Laitner Detroit Free Press Published 6:05 AM EDT Mar 12, 2019 When the world went digital, cynical observers said libraries would soon go extinct. Didn't happen. Today's libraries are snaring the internet lovers they were supposed to lose, and doing it with stuff they used to ban. Pre-internet, a librarian's big job? Shushing loudmouths and expelling anyone with a snack. Now, that approach is largely, ahem, "Gone with the Wind." Today's hip public libraries — including those in Oakland County's Woodward Corridor — boast everything from cooking classes, taste fests and acupuncture demos to rock concerts and play spaces for toddlers who can't read a single word. It was 10 years ago when the dean of libraries at Syracuse University Suzanne Thorin famously said, "Let's face it: the library, as a place, is dead." Back then, anti-tax groups as well as internet surfers were calling libraries obsolete. They claimed, after books and … [Read more...] about How Oakland County libraries are getting hip

This is where Parisians come to unwind after a stressful week, indulge in freshly-caught seafood and breathe some less-polluted sea breeze for a few hours. New Yorkers go to the Hamptons, Londoners have Hastings, and Parisians slip away to Deauville; a classy and timeless seaside resort town located 200 km to the West on the coast of the English Channel. Host of the yearly American Film Festival since 1975, Deauvilles’ close ties with Hollywood are somewhat... quirky. Every Autumn, its 3000 inhabitants see international celebrities flocking from all over the world to attend the event. The Festival makes it a particularly interesting time to schedule a visit, but the experience would be very far from the regular, peaceful ambiance. Where do these A-listers stay, you wonder. Well, there are only two places they can enjoy a luxury accommodation experience: Le Normandy, and nearby, Le Royal Hotel. The two institutions belong to the Barrière Group, a renowned family entertainment … [Read more...] about The Deauville experience
In Part Two of Brendan Crossan's in-depth interview with former Antrim hurler Terence McNaughton, he talks about the failures of his native county and when tragedy struck... TWO moments stand out for Ciaran Barr in the 1989 All-Ireland final against Tipperary. Antrim’s teak-tough full-forward remembers catching the first ball and shooting wide; the other was breaking Bobby Ryan’s hurl in half. “I can remember like it was yesterday,” says Barr. “Jim Nelson decided to play me at wing-forward, even though I’d number 14 on my back, because the guy who was wing-back for them – John Kennedy – I’d given him a tough time the year before in the semi-final. So they put me onto him again. “I caught the first ball, ran through and hit it wide. “That was one of the first shots of the game. Then I remember the second shot of the game - ‘Clute’ [Oclan McFetridge] had a free towards the Canal End and hit it wide. … [Read more...] about Part Two: My playing days, coaching and the trouble with Antrim: Terence McNaughton
