Rancho La Puerta, a fitness resort and wellness spa in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico, is hosting a two-day birthday gala and symposium, “The Sun, the Butterfly, the Dove,” in San Diego, California, this September 24-25th to celebrate its 70th. Proceeds from the gala will benefit Fundación La Puerta, a non-profit dedicated to the Tecate region and building a better future on the border through educational and ecological action, so join the fun and feel good about it at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.
Friday’s gala will feature Guest of Honor, Bill Moyers, an award winning journalist and public commentator. The Saturday symposium will include eminent health, lifestyle, cultural and philanthropic leaders such as Dr. Kenneth R. Pelletier, Dr. Ken Dychtwald, Sheila and Jeffrey Lipinsky, Linda Wertheimer, Gail Sheehy, Lee Stein, Alec Loorz, and others.
Panel discussions will center on three topics:
1. The Sun: Breakthroughs in physical fitness and living the active long life.
2. The Butterfly: Seeking strength via your inner spirit while embracing new and ancient ways to nurture and protect the soul, the collective spirit of mankind, and the planet.
3. The Dove: Finding the purpose-filled life through social action in today’s time-poor world.
Ticket prices are $550 to attend both the gala and symposium and $250 for the symposium only. There will also be a live auction – items include weeks at both the Golden Door and Rancho La Puerta; a stay at Ian Flemings legendary private villa at the Golden Eye Resort in Jamaica, a reconstructed 300-year old adobe mansion in San Miguel de Allende; a stay at co-founder of Rancho La Puerta, Deborah Szekely’s own house; and a Ten Thousand Waves Spa visit in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
