Have You Ever Had A Sound Bath Inside A UFO?

It’s not exactly a UFO, but the Integratron, located in the high desert outside of Palm Springs was built by UFO-logist George van Tassel based on instructions he got from some visitors from Venus.

Perhaps a silly conception, but the building itself is very cool and available for you to go inside and enjoy a “sound bath” meditation where you lay on a mat and get serenaded by the ethereal sound of crystal bowls.

If you like things a little offbeat, this is something for you. The website for Colin’s Palm Springs Getaway has been updated with many activities, from mainstream to madcap. Something for everyone!

Palm Springs Downtown Renewal Continues

Downtown Palm Springs, once the site of the long-defunct Fashion Plaza, is now coming to life with a new hotel, and several new shops.

The six story Rowan hotel is welcoming the public to it’s rooftop deck every day after 5pm to take in the views. They are quite stunning. You can also have dinner at the 4 Saints restaurant or enjoy a cocktail poolside.

Also open is the new Starbucks Reserva, a larger version of the coffee shop giant’s location featuring gourmet coffee blends and preparations alongside the usual offerings.

Modernism Week is coming! February 15 – 25, 2018

Modernism Week is an annual celebration of midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. Paying homage to Palm Springs’ rich architectural heyday in the 50’s and 60’s, when architectural artists such as Albert Frey, William Krisel, and Donald Wexler redefined modern living. You can tour homes that have been lovingly restored, party the night away in your best vintage 60’s tiki wear, and peer over the walls of the best homes from the top of a double decker bus.

Events sell out quickly, so head over to the Modernism Week website at www.modernismweek.com.
