Taking advantage of the night sky and its many wonders, Cal-a-Vie Health Spa (Vista, CA) recently launched the Celestial Experience as part of its ongoing lecture series.

The one-hour star-gazing session will take place each Monday night at the observatory, which is positioned on top of a hill overlooking the grounds at Cal-a-Vie. The two-story building comes complete with eight flat-screen TVs, a state-of-the-art Takahashi telescope and imaging technology, and 26 seats from the original Houston Astrodome. Linked to numerous health and wellness benefits, star-gazing is just one of many mindful pursuits offered at the destination spa.

Spa-goers who participate in the program will learn about specific deep space objects through lectures and telescope viewings, including their distance in light years and general concepts about space and time. Says owner John Havens, “We do body so well at Cal-a-Vie, why not have a great venue to open our guests’ minds to thinking about things we do not think about on a regular basis—like our solar system.”
