Could a lotto jackpot be the key to spiritual fulfillment?
Spiritual fulfillment is something many of us would like to achieve during our lifetime, however attending weekly yoga classes and practicing meditation at home may not always be satisfying for those looking for the ultimate Zen sensation. The ultimate relaxation can be catered towards any budget, so whether you are looking for inner serenity at a public park or can afford the ultimate yoga spa retreat, inner peace is accessible to everyone!
Those who are lucky enough to become big lotto jackpot winners or receive a cash windfall can suddenly afford the most expensive relaxation treatments and experiences. However, be aware that spending a lot of money on something doesn’t always mean quality. For some people, inner relaxation might be free, but for others, it might come with a price tag. Here are a few impressive spiritual escapes to inspire those who dream big. They can be catered to any budget!
For many of us, spiritual fulfillment is something that comes hand-in-hand with luxury and indulgence, which is why a getaway to The Body holiday at Lesport in St Lucia in the Caribbean may be perfect for some.
The seafront resort offers pampering and body treatments as well as all manner of sporting and relaxation activities in the tropical sunshine. Guests can relax knowing their trip is all-inclusive, complete with opulent accommodations and superb cuisine.
To channel the serenity of St Lucia anywhere in the world, get outside, breathe some fresh air and bask in the sun! The sun and its vitamin D-rich rays have proven healing qualities for the mind and soul.
Yoga retreats are a great way to devote a period of a week, a month or longer to meditation, stretching and achieving spiritual fulfilment. The Guardian lists Les Passeroses in south-west France as the best thanks to its eclectic mix of teachings.
In addition to four hours of yoga and mediation, visitors can chill by the pool, go for long walks and enjoy vegetarian meals with local wine and fellow guests.
Many communities offer free weekly yoga classes in public parks on a regular basis. Log online to locate the nearest free yoga classes to you and work on your downward dog and deep breathing without even opening your wallet.
For the most dedicated champions of spirituality, a trek along the pilgrims’ trail in Tibet is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Hindus and Buddhists both consider Mount Kailas to be a holy place and once climbers reach the 5,000m point, they shed a token of their past or a lock of hair before mounting the Tara pass where their new life symbolically begins and they achieve oneness and fulfillment.
Get out and be active! Go for a hike in the mountains or hills and get your adrenaline pumping. Watch as nature changes throughout the four seasons and take a few moments to experience all of your senses!

While some people believe in meditation and trekking to holy places, others find spirituality in the supernatural and crystals and tarot readings. Travelling to Westbury, New York to have their future told by Elizabeth Baron might appeal to more superstitious lotto winners.
The internationally-acclaimed medium has worked with celebrities and has published books on her gift. She could give some people the answers they have been looking for.
Thank you, Austen for this enlightening travelogue on places one can go to find quiet, peace, and inner awareness.
A few ideas I have are:
Gampo Abbey, a Tibetan monastery in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York
