Recently we returned from our second trip this year to Sunrise Springs Spa Retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in preparation for what we anticipate to be a very busy upcoming season both personally and professionally.
We love the retreat due to the incredible food, the daily meditation, the beautiful outdoors, the activities and the people we meet while there – both staff and guests. We absolutely have a relaxing, insightful time there and plan to go back again. However, that’s not why I am writing this blog post. It’s not a promotion for Sunrise Springs. This trip was special because I learned something new. Archery. Yes, it’s an activity offered at Sunrise Springs and yes, I pretty much stink at it, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it and want to do it again.
Deep breath, hold it, release. Yes, that’s it. The zen of archery. Seems like those same steps could be applied to many of our experiences in real life, right? That’s probably why I like it so much. Archery 360, tells it best, “Archers learn to tune out all distractions, focus on their form, and release the bowstring consistently. Concentrating during archery practice can help you focus better in other areas of life too.”
