I have never been to New Mexico, so when the opportunity came up to visit the beautiful Sunrise springs resort I knew I just had to go. Keep reading to learn more about my experience.

Their team of highly-credentialed, intuitive and caring wellness experts work with you to create a sustainable, life-changing strategy so you can take your Sunrise Springs experience home with you.
I had fun exploring some of New Mexico’s Petroglyphs with Sunrise Springs. Petroglyphs are images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of rock art. These images are 500+ years old. This was one of the many activities that sunrie springs offeres. The land is absolutely breath taking and I am blessed to have had the chance to experience it.
After my hike I took a horticulture class to create flower essence. We walked around the grounds selecting flowers that we were drawn to. We took time to meditate and connect to the flowers. The grounds are very lush with lots of greenery and spaces to sit quietly. I found a spot perfect for me to set an intention. Once all the flowers were collected we used a mixture and drained them into the glass bottle. The bottle was the perfect size to fly home with. I loved this class because it was easy but also mindful and was something I can do again at home now that I had leaned how to.
The Spa was one of my favorite spots. The perfect place to relax and unwind with a multitude of treatment options. I loved the private pool that over looked the property. There is nothing quite like having the space all to yourself.
I also got to hang out with some amazing cats and dogs. At Sunrise Springs they work with @espanolahumane and @assistancedogs and you get the joy of hanging out with some amazing cats and dogs. .
Truthfully I’ll take an older cat over a kitten because I know so many people give up their animals for whatever reason and the older cats always look so sad. Adopt. Don’t shop. If I find my have 3 cats already I would have surely adopted cute little chubby Libby. ( she is the black and white cat I. The photos if you swipe) she was my kind of girl. I pray somebody loving adopts her. Libby is with @espanolahumane .
@espanolahumane Every year they complete 4,500 free spay/neuter surgeries and 12,800 free vaccinations for at-risk pets. They also sponsor vaccine clinics in traditionally underserved neighborhoods. This community outreach effort builds relationships with pet owners, identifies the health of at-risk pets, and schedules surgeries for intact pets, preventing unwanted litters. Their goal is to reduce the number of unwanted animals at their shelter by creating a healthier community for pets, their families, and their neighbors.
@assistancedogs The keystone of ADW’s program is teaching diverse student populations to support the work of professional dog trainers. Encouraging youth leadership is vital to who we are.
In the dog-training process, quality and quantity of learning are served. Every ADW dog learns a minimum of 90 commands. Additional training that educates dogs to serve complex disabilities such as medical alert and PTSD have expanded their programs, and continue to help them build community and empower diverse populations.
All of the food is made fresh with love. Every meal was amazing. And they had vegan options. My favorite was their pea and celery hummus. So tasty.
Sunrise Springs was the perfect getaway. They careful create an iteniary for you to follow thoughout the day, where each activity is good for your mind, body and soul.
