Our intention for our retreat is "Illuminate Your Life." We could think of no place better to do this than in Taos, New Mexico. Taos has been an important artist colony for over a century, and to this day continues to attract artists and photographers from around the world. The reason for this is the legendary light of Taos. Because of its high elevation (Taos sits at a higher altitude than Denver or Salt Lake City), it has very clear, dry air. This pure air scatters shorter wavelengths of light (violent and blue tones of light), allowing beautiful colors like red, pink and orange to illuminate the clouds and the landscape. Additionally, the light crystals that occur in the air at high altitudes refract the light, creating beautiful displays. Because it is in the mountains, the weather at Taos is constantly changing. As the weather changes, so does the light. These beautiful light displays will shine light on the aspects of our life we wish to enhance and help us release what is no longer serving us. The result: A more illuminated life!

Our Destination

El  Monte Sagrado, situated in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, offers  a serene setting surrounded by waterfalls, ponds and towering cottonwood trees. The perfectly manicured grounds make this mountain retreat an oasis only a few blocks away from the town of Taos’s historic plaza and 20 miles away from world class skiing at Taos Ski Valley.

El  Monte Sagrado features the award-winning De La Tierra Restaurant inspired by international and local influences. Known for its global design, Anaconda Bar has a lively atmosphere where hotel guests and locals can experience signature drinks and creative cuisine.


El Monte Sagrado, named one of the Top Spa Resorts in America by Forbes, only uses natural and organic products, such as “Sagrado” by Body  Bliss, their own private label. For post-treatment meditation, The Sacred  Circle, a relaxation area revered for hundreds of years by the local Taos tribes, invites guests to unwind among towering willow and cottonwood trees. After soaking up the warm sun, guests can enjoy the resort’s two hydrotherapy tubs or saltwater pool to further revitalize  body and soul.
