world bathing day 2018
June 22 marks a special day in the global bathing calendar. In celebration of World Bathing Day, people at hot springs all over the world will be bathing at sunrise and sunset and documenting the experience. Using photography, video and the hashtag #worldbathingday, we will create a shared experience and cultivate a global understanding of the practice of hot springs bathing and its cultural significance.
Join us as people from all cultures and generations come together for a day of storytelling and activities. The day will open with a sunrise ceremony at our Hilltop Pool – a ceremony that will be replicated at hot springs across the globe as the sun wakes each bathing destination. A program of bathing workshops will continue up until sunset.
We would love for as many people as possible to become part of the hot springs bathing narrative.
