As parents and entrepreneurs, Adi and I get SO caught up in everything else in life from our children to our work to our friends and everything else we forget where it all began - with us. It’s so important for us to take time away from everything in life and be in it - even if that means having to actually fly on a plane and get the F away from LA and all that we know. But it’s so good, friends. It's so good to be in it with the person you love and reconnect to all you cherish together.
At the end of last month, Adi and I escaped to Sunrise Springs Spa Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a weekend and the vortex was so powerful. The second I got there I felt so nurtured and released so much. The facilities, excursions, and activities gave us a weekend to truly decompress with my partner for life.
It took lots of years of being off balance, unconnected and working through a ton of shit before we as a couple could figure out this way to go off the grid for a day, a night, or a weekend and reconnect to one another. This is a bit of what we did to give you an idea.
Our weekend getaway at Sunrise Springs Spa Resort
When we arrived we both felt completely ungrounded and unsettled from all that we were leaving in our FULL as-can-be lives so we took that first day to decompress and create space for softening. That buffer time is essential to any kind of deep reconnection whether with your partner, parent or spouse.
We spent the first day relaxing and reading on the dock by the water - literally HOURS of reading. Which I haven’t done in such a long time. What a gift it was just to read; so pure, so simple. After hours of reading and a glorious nap we took a soak in their natural mineral spring and dove deeper in the vortex of nature.
By the end of day two, we were so IN it that I was offline for a full day! We went to a yoga class which we haven’t done together since before Noa was born. We lay under the stars. We took lots of naps and ate all the food. We both got CBD massages and had a 90 min. hypnotherapy session where we had the most incredible past-life regression together. We found ourselves several times in past lives and found all the gifts we have brought to our children - such a heart-opening experience. I opened up to it entirely and felt so much appreciation and gratitude for the life Adi and I have created.
We created this magic
I am so appreciative of how open-minded Adi was to the whole weekend. It was very much a spiritually-curated weekend including a healing session with a Shaman which was perfect for me and Adi (surprisingly) was all in.
This time together is so sacred. It reminds us of the magic we have created including our three little love beings full of pure light and wonder. So little we give this time to ourselves. We always have people over or go on double dates or have family events and Sunrise Springs gave us a weekend to pause and remember where it all began.
By Saturday night we were so filled up and ready to see our babies, we left SUPER early Sunday morning. Honest, that’s all we could ever want out of a weekend getaway - the chance to reconnect, recharge and come back excited and ready to embrace our full lives.
