About this trip

Do you want a quick trip to cut your stress level down, and ramp up fun?

Get ready for an inspiring journey deeply nourished by nature and art!  You are invited to step into a land of shifting light, boundless skies, and assimilated culture!

I found a really cool book on amazing women who broke through cultural boundaries who rode horseback, camped under the stars, knew Thomas Edison, Theodore Roosevelt, and used their connections to change the Southwest! It totally got me revved up to share this power of self determination in one of the most beautiful spots in the world!  Let these ladies and incredible Santa Fe Area inspire you to go on your own journey connecting to your authentic self!

Art is our tool.  Let the connections we make be our fuel!

Trip Overview

Join me as you soak in the divine breath of the land, discover art hot spots, enjoy fantastic NM cuisine, and engage in lively conversation with like-minded women! 

Here are just some of the  specially curated activities you'll enjoy:  Horseback riding on O’Keefe’s homestead property, Ghost Ranch.  Get blown away by art cave tour with soundhealing.   We'll play in the House of Eternal Return (an adult fun house designed by artists that will tickle all your senses)  and bring out that inner child!  Although packed with new and exciting group activities, you will also have some nice personal time.

I've  crafted this unique trip, because there is NOTHING out there like this experience that melds the art, nature, cultural and spiritual qualities that make Santa Fe unique in the world!  

This 6-day adventure takes place May 23-29, 2020.  Included in the price:  Ground transportation(provided you arrive and leave at certain days and times) , all hotels, all breakfasts, and most lunches and dinners, as well as all exhibit and experience entry fees!  Air transportation is not included.  (Depending on where and when you land, you may pay for transport to Santa Fe/ Abiquiu from Albuquerque.)  We will have a van to bring the group up at a certain time.
