BBC’s Sunday Escape showed a special about Spa’s and their effect on stress management. Listening to the spiritual gurus it looks like Spa’s might be the new churches. If they are replacing religion, they will almost certainly make for a more peaceful world. Most battles in the past, and even those today, are fought in the name of a supreme being. So all the better if God or Allah is replaced by Zen. Unless it’s in human nature to take any excuse to start bickering. What if Allah and God weren’t at each other’s throats in fifty years time, but instead the war was on between the Californian meditators and the Buddhists? Get out your orange robe and trendy sporting gear and start throwing those Bonsai trees at each other.
