WELL

Faced with an unusual event, an overheated brain, a frantic pace of life, a body that says stop, in short, when nothing is going right, many of us want to believe in celestial powers, unexplained powers, in force of nature and its elements. The Covid epidemic that we have all suffered for the past two years has probably accelerated the current craze for esotericism, holistic medicines; for the desire to rely on the healers of yesteryear, on grandmother’s remedies, to our ancestors the witches. But also of (re)discover the powers of stonessacred assets, to succumb to mysterious elixirs or to adopt purification rituals.

Today, many of us consider well-being as the key to all our ills and to take a new look at our external and internal beauty. So to get the year off to a good start, we are offering you 10 ways to begin this quest for spirituality and well-being in general.
