I’m delighted to be teaching a class on Intuitive Ink Painting in February, 2019 at Rancho La Puerta, a wellness retreat and spa in Tecate, Baja California (Mexico). This award-winning resort was founded in 1940 by the Szekely family and has been led by the family ever since. My mother and I discovered the Rancho several years ago at the suggestion of a friend (thank you, Jan McLaughlin!). We didn’t yet know that what seemed like a one-time luxury is actually health-care, in the form of preventive and restorative self-care.
Each year that we have had the privilege of sharing a week at the Ranch, Mom and I have returned home restored, refreshed, having learned new things and met fascinating people. There always seems to be a little magic at Rancho, whether it is a healing insight, meeting someone you will never forget, de-stressing, having a life-changing conversation, trying something new that you wouldn’t do at home (daily yoga, crystal bowl therapy, waking up to hike at sunrise, spin class, cardio drumming, falling asleep on a beautiful lounge beside a swimming pool, making a prayer arrow, hiking to the organic farm to meet the producers, to name just a few). Before we leave the Ranch, we always sign up for another week the following year. We often meet people who have been staying annually for a decade or more; they come with friends, with family members, or on their own. It’s a welcoming place that embraces everyone.
I’m looking forward to teaching one of my favorite things to Rancho La Puerta’s guests during the week of February 16-22, 2019: Intuitive Ink Painting, using ink-filled brush pens and water. I will have a variety of mixed media materials to share, and each day, we’ll make easy, fun, travel-friendly projects, suitable for both beginners and experienced artists. I hope you’ll follow the link below and check out the class on the Rancho La Puerta website. Have a look around the website, too; the accommodations are beautiful and there is a wide range of choices, the food is organic and delicious, and the options for activities are varied and extensive. There’s truly something for everyone. I hope to see you there!
