This project re-examines the importance and role of meditative practices and the baths as places of social and cultural interaction that introduce a new rhythm in the everyday life of the city of Newcastle. Acting as diversion from the everydayness and the routine that slows down the hectic pace imposed by city
life. It punctuates a pause in everyday life, that allows for reconnection with oneself and body, stress release and wellbeing. Whilst creating an antidote to consumerism and an alternative to the privately owned commercial and recreational spaces.
