Many a time, a small experience such as the smell of fresh baked bread in the supermarket, is all it takes for one to get lost in the blissful golden memories of childhood. The time when happiness was to see your mother bake for you in the Kitchen. This arouses an emotion of calmness, relaxation, and a sense of Love, Security and Happiness from within.
At Zen Resorts Bali, we aim to provide our guests with an experience similar to the earliest memories one has of their childhood, through our very unique program called Zentsu. Water is the foundation of life, we comprise of 80%of water, and we spend the first 9 months of our lives in a water womb. Through Zentsu, we aim to awaken the inner feelings and memories of the first 9 months of life in the womb.
Different things trigger childhood memories for different people. For some it can be as simple as a trip to the supermarket, where the smell of freshly baked bread and cakes conjures images of childhood decades before. Often this arouses a strong feeling of relaxation, security, love and happiness.
Following on from that notion we have developed Zentsu, a deeply relaxing and emotionally healing technique involving your complete immersion in water. This element is more important than many consider. Life on Earth began with one drop of water; our bodies comprise of some 75% water; we spend the first 9 months of our lives in a water womb and water covers around 80% of the Earth’s surface. It is the foundation of life in every sense.
Zentsu takes place in the Zen infinity pool with our yoga and Ayurveda therapist. It begins with a prayer, deep breathing techniques and a few minutes of meditation. You will then be supported upon the surface of the water. The therapist will attempt to bring to the fore your memories of the womb; all of those moments before your consciousness was whole.
Scientists have shown that babies are in a state of bliss while in the womb. Our first memories, thoughts and emotions are arguably experienced during this time, and so the feeling of being buoyant in water is intimately connected to our first experience of being alive. The deeply relaxing act of re-enacting those early months of life results in a revelatory experience that acts as physical, emotional and spiritual therapy. Many guests say the Zentsu is among the most restorative of their lives and some go through a sense of rebirth. This profound experience can help you shed past traumas, enhance your empathy and healing, and even improve the bonding issues found in parental relationships.
