Designed for couples, friends and loved ones, the powerful wellness journey allows guests to reconnect, realign and release limitations together

CAREFREE, Ariz. (January 26, 2022) – As emotional well-being, relational health and vulnerability continue to earn space in the wellness conversation, CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa encourages travelers to find deeper connection with loved ones with its new “A Path to Connection” package. Rooted in principles of approachability, flexibility and personalization, the award-winning wellness resort invites friends, romantic partners and even family members to tap into the healing energy of the Sonoran Desert for meaningful bonding.

Focusing on being with vulnerability, the package elements combine CIVANA’s commitment to “happiness first, healthiness always,” while offering new curated wellness experiences that create a safe container to explore vulnerability. Guests who embark on these experiences will be provided space and given tools to better understand, empathize, forgive themselves and others as well as explore acceptance, love and belonging.

Exploring Vulnerability Through Trust

As guests embark on this journey, they’ll foster safe vulnerability through communication, trust and honesty. Each class and offering will leave guests with a better sense of the guest they came with and, ultimately, of themselves within the relationship for deeper connection. To further support vulnerable connection, all guests who book the package will receive The New York Times renowned 36 Questions to Fall in Love printed as a welcome amenity.
