Shoes off, hearts on…
Imagine a day where you first open your eyes to a never-ending expanse of silent, sparkling desert. You drink a nutrient-dense, youth-restoring elixir—and drink in the serenity of the moment along with it. Revel in the feeling of being alive with a grounding yoga class, and head straight from hatha yoga to a calming massage. Take advantage of unclaimed time: initiate a spontaneous heart to heart with a new kindred spirit in the healing mineral water pool, nap on one of the surrounding day beds in the warming sun, wander our 60 acres of gorgeous landscaped desert with the native wild rabbits and roadrunners, or meditate in one of the many Bali-inspired, private, pocket spaces with mesmerizing views.
With the fluff of your normal life stripped away, you’re left with only crystal clear connection to your body, mind, and spirit. Treat yourself to a treatment with a team of incredible individuals at your beck and call. Feel physically lighter with a healing colonic, and realign your spine (and priorities) on the slant board. Wind down in the Floating Bed—a miraculous mechanism designed to rock your central nervous system straight into parasympathetic mode, like your mother intuitively did when you were a child. Now imagine a night where you sleep more soundly than you have in… forever.
You just lived a day for you. Have you ever really done that before? You deserved it.
When you arrive at We Care Spa…
You quickly realize that it’s unlike any other “spa” you’ve ever been to. Like coming home, it feels familiar and familial. Built on 10 of the 60 acres of land that have been home to Susana for decades, the place is a folksy hodge podge of spaces that have grown with our family since 1986. Each of the 17 guest rooms is unique. The delicate patchwork of its construction over history is evidence of the deep love that’s been cultivated over time. A home devoted to restoring people’s lives is bound to have layers and layers of love in its walls. And you can feel it—in the place and in the people…
Start calling this sanctuary “home.”
You know that way you can depend on family to bend over backwards to help you? That’s how you can depend on our staff. Our practitioners have been with us for a very long time—some for 30 years—and they stay because they palpably love what they do. Because they have palpable love for you. Because they don’t quit on family. Cue your sigh of relief—because trust us, we know: health practitioners personally invested in you? That’s a breath of fresh air.
Get Ready from life-altering friendships,
Whether you come for the minimum three, six, eight, or more days, you join our family for that time. With only 17 rooms, the experience here is intimate. We maintain very limited capacity so that we can guarantee deep impact on our guests’ lives—the kind that sprouts from genuine connection and real conversation—between fellow guests and staff alike.
And if you’re anything like over 80% of our guests, you’ll be coming home to us again, and again, and again.
Explore the extraordinary desert oasis that’s no mirage…
To serve you, we have facilities and installations that are not only unique and beautiful, but also enhance your detoxification and spiritual well-being:
The Ancient Labyrinth
We Care Spa built a sacred labyrinth over 25 years ago to aid in detoxifying the body, mind, and spirit of anyone visiting. Since ancient times, labyrinths have served profoundly in humankind’s search for the core of divinity. The pattern is an archetypal form dating back thousands of years, believed to guide us to our higher selves—and thereby shed the physical and spiritual obstacles holding us back in the process. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has one linear path that starts from the outer edge, moves into the heart or center, and then leads out again. Through the act of trusting the path and giving up conscious control of how things should go, you can experience a transformation to open you up for reflection and healing.
Like the rest of our grounds, our labyrinth is a chronicle of the love that’s moved through it in our many guests over the years. Many of the stones were placed by guests themselves who learned to express their creativity – and free their spirits – through the art of mosaic.
The Fire Pit
Ever since ancient times, fire has been crucial to communal celebration, transformation, ritual, and ceremony. In getting in touch with the oldest parts of our own souls, we connect with the parts of our humanity that we all share—the parts that connect us. The power in gathering around a fire is one of those parts of us. Fire can serve as anything you need it to serve in that moment: cleansing, healthy destruction, rebirth, or metamorphosis. Our fire pit is designed to facilitate these important experiences, all beneath an open desert sky.
Experience the benefits of floating motion—the very same, safe sensation that we felt gently floating in our mothers’ wombs. It activates a powerful relaxation response, benefiting the lymphatic and circulatory systems (delivering more oxygen to your cells), setting the stage for better sleep and less morning stiffness, and converting your body into a mode ready to heal. Studies show rocking also improves dreams and reduces overall stress. Though not fully understood, the mechanism is also reported to cure motion sickness.
The Medicine Wheel
This structure was hand-built around a compass, but tuned to the intention and direction of your soul’s personal journey. Experience your energy shift as you move around the wheel, and gain insight about your greater purpose. Medicine wheels—or sacred hoops—were traditionally constructed by laying stones in a particular pattern on the ground by certain indigenous peoples of North America for various astronomical, ritual, healing, detoxification, and teaching purposes. With the help of our corresponding color and symbolism chart, decode messages from your Higher Self to aid in your healing, your growth, and your journey.
Far Infrared Sauna
Feel toxins, fat, and anything no longer serving you melt away in our far infrared sauna. Unlike a traditional sauna, far infrared heat travels 2 to 3 inches deep into your body. It is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy that warms the body, mimicking the way your body naturally boosts the function of your immune system during a fever—detoxifying and slowing down virus and bacterial growth. Far infrared saunas increase blood circulation, carrying more nutrients to the skin to improve tone and texture. You can easily burn 300 calories by sitting, relaxing, and perspiring in a 30 minute infrared session. One liter of sweat in an ordinary sauna contains approximately 3% toxins, in an far infrared sauna this is 20%, including heavy metals such as cadmium, nickel, mercury, and lead—plus alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, and cholesterol.
We’re in the midst of a complete renovation…
Which will render the grounds with a more modern Bali vibe—complete with open glass windows, cool stone and gorgeous wood floors, and nature-inspired finishes. We are currently adding six new buildings: one building with a new yoga room and lecture hall; a spa building that will house women’s/men’s locker rooms, workout gym, and steam room; a new pool area with day beds and private lounging areas; and the final four buildings will feature 12 new guest suites facing the mountains, with clear desert views.
