Business collaborations: Silken Tent includes a soft store for Vosges, a gourmet chocolatier; carries the organic sugar scrub and body butter from Chicago-based Basanti Spa Products in its boutique and Water Ritual area; and retails the Banduu from DownDog Apparel, a headband for yogis.

Inspiration: Hundreds of amazing women with a common desire—to build a community where friendship, peace, healing and support are naturally shared. The Robert Frost poem The Silken Tent captures the essence of these women.

Future plans: To be named as the top spa in the Chicagoland area and to open another location founded on the same principles
