The Santa Fe Wellness Retreat will be held over five days at Sunrise Springs Resort and Spa just outside of downtown Santa Fe.

Led by Beth Whitman, this getaway will be a time for participants to relax, restore and explore inwardly as we enjoy our peaceful and sacred surroundings. Through meditation, yoga and journaling, we’ll learn to reflect upon ourselves, our family, friends, work and lifestyle choices.

Sunrise Springs’ expert staff will provide teachings about health, nutrition and the culinary arts.santa fe skull

We’ll learn to Be Bold through knowledge and insight about what it takes to improve our lives incrementally and discover our best selves.

Healthy vegetarian meals and snacks will be provided throughout the retreat.

This is an all-inclusive program that includes accommodations, meals and most activities. While this is not a spa getaway, there are spa facilities at Sunrise Springs that you can schedule on your own at an additional cost.

While your participation is not required, we highly encourage everyone to partake in each of the activities included in the retreat. This will help you get the most out of your stay!
