Hotep Beloved. Baaba Pa-Ur here sending you blessings, blessings and even more blessings for 2012. I hope that you had a glorious holiday season and got a chance to spend some quality time with the special people in your life. It is my wish that you continue to strive to reach your goals and aspirations and that they become manifest for you in a timely manner.
The sad truth is that many of us will give up on our ‘resolutions’ before February gets here. One way to reduce your chances of giving up on your goals is to set smaller micro-goals. You may not be able to change every aspect of your life in one year. You’ll get overwhelmed and just quit. So set a small, measurable goal. Once you achieve that, set another small measurable goal. Keep taking those little baby steps towards your transformation and you have a much greater chance of getting to your finish line.
It is also my wish that you will carve out some special time for yourself as you strive to live out your ‘resolutions’. You can’t do much for yourself or anyone else if your own ‘Love Tank’ is running low. And one place where I know you can fill your personal ‘Love Tank’ is at the Soul Sweat. We will nurture you and give you so much energy that you can then go out and conquer your world as you leap over all the obstacles in it.
2012 Soul Sweat Calendar
I’d like to send a special shout out to Soul Sweat assistant Elsiana Maat who put her graphic design skills into gear and cranked out a lovely 2012 Soul Sweat calendar.
We’ll be kicking off the 2012 Soul Sweats with a bang!

I hope to see your shining face in the place. May 2012 be your year to prosper and fly to the Heights of your deepest and dearest desires. May the Divine bless you and everyone connected to you, this day, and forever more. – Tu Ashe’
Overview of The Soul Sweat
The Soul Sweat is a monthly group spa event that takes place in Miami, Philadelphia and New York. We take you through the dry sauna, wet sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, cold pool and swimming pools. You get a foot massage while you’re in the jacuzzi, in the dry sauna you get a body scrub and a back, shoulder and neck rub with oil. We feed you fruits, water, tonics, teas and juices. We lead you through breathing exercises, empowering affirmations and uplifting songs. You get to network with positive, health-conscious people, like yourself. You leave feeling renewed, relaxed, de-stressed and ready to take on the world with a whole new attitude.
All you need to bring are your swimsuit and your personal toiletries. Flip flops are provided or you can bring your own. Towels are free and there is a small charge to use a freshly cleaned bath robe (free in Philly)
To get the most out of The Soul Sweat it is good to eliminate or at least reduce your consumption of the following foods at least 3 days before the Sweat:
- starchy foods (bread, rice, potatoes, dairy products, pasta, etc.)
This will allow your body to withstand more heat allowing you to detox on a deeper level.
