Organic gardening and humane animal treatment have always been cornerstones of Sunrise Ranch’s operations. We’re strong believers in the connection between nourishing food and spiritual well-being, so it makes sense to put healthy, satisfying meals at the top of our priority list. There’s no doubt about it: humanity is making a great shift in consciousness. […]
Submitted by Jerry Kvasnicka Why are we so different from one another? I have always been rather curious about this and consider the fact of human diversity to be at least as fascinating and worthy of celebration as the fact of human unity. We are such a varied lot. On the physical level there are […]
by Lori Rock, STANDING IN THE LIGHT® Teacher and Facilitator Of all the New Year’s resolutions we can set for ourselves, what would be the one underlying quality that would help all of them? What one factor would help you achieve a better diet, a more appropriate exercise regime and more joy in daily […]
By Elizabeth Fritzler Lose weight. Eat less sugar. Practice guitar more often. New Year’s resolutions like these are fairly common in America. Weight loss and fitness goals regularly top the list of most popular resolutions. One trip to the gym on January 1 will show you just how many more people occupy the treadmills than […]
By Elizabeth Fritzler If you’ve ever seen a visual display of sound frequencies, it’s probably been on a screen with sharp spikes and wavy lines. But did you know that the vibration from certain frequencies can form breathtaking shapes in matter, some of them resembling snowflakes or sacred geometry patterns? The study of the vibrational […]
By Elizabeth Fritzler One of my favorite scenes from the movie Office Space involves an unfortunate character and a scarcity of birthday cake. In this scene, cubicle dwellers gather around their loathsome supervisor and a cake while singing a lackluster rendition of “Happy Birthday.” Milton, a hopelessly inept employee, refuses to pass his slice […]
submitted by Jerry Kvasnicka Recently, to my great dismay, the color television set in my living room began showing double images on the screen. I called a TV repairman and informed him that everyone has two faces. “Oh, that’s not unusual,” he replied. “It’s an election year.” This didn’t actually happen of course, but when […]

Culinary Arts — The Game Has Changed With the epidemic of GMOs, Monsanto and artificially created foods, organic farming has never been so important. People are making their health more and more important, and here at Sunrise Ranch we are adding flavor with things like herbs rather than sugar or artificial sweeteners. The greatest addiction […]
By Elizabeth Fritzler “I should really do more yoga.” How many times has this thought, or something similar, crossed your mind? If you’re anything like me, you probably lost count a long time ago. I could use any excuse to rationalize my failure to get on the mat: not enough time, too tired, too […]
By Gary Goodhue and Elizabeth Fritzler Between the movie and bestselling book, The Secret has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide. If the word manifestation wasn’t popular before the book and movie release in 2006, it became absolutely pervasive afterward in conversations where personal growth, quantum physics and human potential were concerned. The Secret […]
submitted by Jerry Kvasnicka As I stated in the initial installment of this series I find a lot of wisdom in bumper stickers and keep a list of them handy for illustrating and driving home points I’m seeking to make in casual conversation or more public statements. Bumper stickers seem to have a marvelous ability […]

With 365 Acres of land, Sunrise Ranch will be the home of the Arise Music Festival for the next 7 years. Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, Sunrise Ranch offers many unique […]
By Elizabeth Fritzler Growing up, I never did much community service. Besides some light requirements as part of my high school program, volunteering at the local food bank never made it very high on my priority list. Now, years later, I look back and realize there were three big things stopping me from getting involved […]
