An unforgettable weekend in the Land of Enchantment: July 20-23, 2017

"Vacationing has changed. People now want to collect ‘experiences’ as opposed to photos or other ‘brag-abouts.’ SMU-in-Taos provides a venue, a learning environment, and just enough mental stretches. It all added up to a memorable experience. I am so glad I was there."
– Lisa LeMaster

Reflect. Refresh. Renew. We invite you to an enriching weekend in July at the SMU-in-Taos Cultural Institute.

Whether you choose an engaging course for intellectual growth or a Taos adventure, you’ll enjoy your experience in this inspiring setting. Taos Cultural Institute courses give you two-and-a-half days of in-depth, hands-on exploration of topics that reflect the unique cultural richness of Northern New Mexico. Field trips enable you to experience your topic even more vividly, with time to discover and sightsee on your own.

Plan to arrive Wednesday evening or Thursday morning to enjoy these Taos highlights on your own.
