~Being Alone for the Holidays Can Be a Chance to Become Refocused, Re-energized and Self-Full~
ST. GEORGE, UTAH, October 25, 2010 - Spending the holidays solo does not have to be dismal affair. The expensive gifts and obligatory functions won't be missed at Red Mountain Resort & Spa, where guests get in the holiday spirit by rebuilding their inner spirit. Instead of polite conversation and awkward mistletoe moments, consider a gift to yourself this holiday season—a blissful trip for one to replenish mind, body and spirit at the serene Red Mountain Resort & Spa. This holiday season, Red Mountain will host two inspiring speakers to help guests rediscover their vim and vigor while vacationing amongst Utah's tranquil red rocks, just in time for a New Year and new you.
“It is important to stop thinking about taking a vacation, especially during the holiday season, as a selfish act,” said Cindy Clemens, resident life coach at Red Mountain Resort & Spa. “It is actually about allowing yourself to become self-full. And once you fill your energy tank, you are actually able to be more present with others, give them your full attention, and make authentic connections. Taking good care of yourself is actually the best gift you can give to the important people in your life.”
As an additional perk for independent travelers seeking “me” time, guests who book the Resort's Signature Package over the holidays will be able to attend the scheduled speaker's presentation and participate in their renewal program complimentary. Red Mountain Resort & Spa's Signature Package starts at $269 per night, single occupancy and includes:
To further enhance their stay, visitors who book a three-night stay will receive a $125 adventure and spa credit, and those who book a five-night stay will receive a $200 credit.
The first of two engaging speakers, Bertice Berry, Ph.D. will lead “Renew. Re-Energize. Re-Engage”—a series of uplifting presentations in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Dr. Berry is a sociologist and a highly sought-after lecturer for her poignant, yet entertaining motivational discussions. Dr. Berry penned the best-selling inspirational memoir, “I'm On My Way, But Your Foot is On My Head,” and has also published two humor books and four best-selling novels. Her presentations are as follows:
From December 27 - December 29, Red Mountain will host Dr. Elaine Dembe, a celebrated life coach, speaker, chiropractor and best-selling author. Dr. Dembe will help participants identify strategies to achieve personal goals and bring health and wellness, purpose, passion and joy to their life - the perfect combination for a new year and a new start. Dr. Dembe's program will include:
