Bathing: Water, Health and Well-being

Why do we bathe?

The second of two programmes examining the rituals of bathing. Last week: spiritual purification and supernatural waters.

Do you enjoy a hot bath or is water too precious where you live to bathe in? This week is about cleansing the body and clearing the mind… water, health and well-being.

All of our programmes are available by clicking on the Free Downloads services.
