Situated in the shadow of Mount Kuchumaa, a Kumeyaay Indian sacred site, Mexico's Rancho La Puerta spa has started incorporating Native American folkways into its regimens. In between hikes and body-conditioning classes, you can exercise your gray cells with Grandfather Raven, an elderly Shoshone. The hour-long session employs ancient ceremonial elements such as the medicine wheel. The best part: drumming for better dreams.
