Insight THE HOME WITHIN Discover how turn of the century acting techniques, a shaman the Mexican jungle and using your imagination may enable you to travel far and wide with home by your side. TE X T BY FR ANCESC A CRUZ T here are certain pockets of the world that continue to call to me. Even after visiting them, I get this strong sense of needing to return. I’m drawn back. Maybe it’s a past life thing, a familiarity I just can’t put my finger on. It’s a place that feels like I belong, like home. If you’ve never experienced that, it’s indescribable. Tulum in Mexico is one of those places for me. Psychologist, Counselor, Energy Healer and one of the pioneers of acupuncture in the U.S., Dr. Bobby Klein, has his Yäan Wellness Energy Spa there, within the Be Tulum Beach Spa & Resort. Tulum is hugged by the Caribbean Sea and the vast jungle symbolic of the Yucatan Peninsula. It’s a combination of nature and rawness, an energetic portal 138 woven in with comfort and large brush strokes of luxury. It’s a favorite destination for yogis and the wellness-inclined. Klein refers to his place as the wellness temple, and it is. The second you walk up the wooden path leading to the slab of open concrete encompassed by plenty of green foliage and incense (the area considered the lobby), your heart lunges forward and then remains blissfully still. In this tranquil space, I sit observing the wooden cabanas on stilts located on the property where guest languidly prepare for treatments. I dig my toes into the softest grass I’ve come across, while smells of citronella and copal dance about, contemplating the serenity that unfolds as the excitement begins to spill forth.
