One doctor of Chinese medicine cites the silver in the ground as the source of Aspen’s palpable buzz, other references the ayurvedic theory of vata dosha. One thing is for certain: spiritual gurus of all stripes agree this is an intense place – and paradoxically home to a new wave of healing practitioners ready to balance you out.
Most people who visit Aspen have probably experienced it in one way or another: a tangible energy that makes the town feel almost alive, a buzz of electricity that runs through the atmosphere at a higher frequency than most other places. That might be part of the reason Aspen draws so many holistic healers, yogis, energy workers and other spiritual leaders into its midst each year. According to some, this wellness renaissance might be out of necessity, a way to help people find balance in the face of Aspen’s frenetic frequency.
