Our wish is to prepare you for the most memorable vacation of your life, and assist you to prepare ahead. Once you have prepared well for your wellness journey, you can leave your rational mind behind, and really let go! We have compiled a list of items that we wouldn't leave home without! Remember, Sedona is Alive! Our weather can change rapidly and it tends to be warm during the day when the sun is up, and cools rapidly when it goes down.

Preparing your luggage:
Luggage ID Tags: Label these with your destination date, address and phone number (Retreat and Heal) 460 Harmony Drive Sedona, Az 86336.  Place your personal information on the flip side for your return journey. Always place an identifiable marker on your luggage (red polka dot ribbon, etc.) Emergency Contact information and Health Insurance Information on your person, for travel and to submit when you arrive.

Planning your wardrobe:
For all of your activities and retreats with us; Vortex tours, day packages,
and most Sedona Attractions, you will need this basic set of items.
Remember, our rapid weather changes as you pack. Always be prepared (Boy Scout motto). Your length of stay, will affect the amount to pack, but remember that you will have access to our on-site laundry room so don't over pack! Remember to keep it simple.

*Sedona Retreat Tips, Questions and Answers*

Why are there so many Retreats offered in Sedona?
Sedona has many very good venues for retreats, and they all have a somewhat different focus.  Sedona, with its majestic beauty in any direction, and the magical vortex sites for healing, makes it a perfect destination for healing the body, mind, and spirit.  The energy of Sedona, supports healing on many different levels. I have personally witnessed deep healing happen when anyone comes here with an open heart, mind, and clear intentions for healing.

How do I choose a Retreat?
First make a list of what you are looking for in a retreat program. Next, ask lots of questions.  Does the retreat facilitator have experience in working with the issues that you wish to address.   Also, many of the retreats require that you travel around from place to place to different therapists. Is this what you want? Usually the real meaning of retreat--is to stop and turn inward. Therefore, quietness and stillness are very important.

What is different about your retreats?
Our retreats are usually held at Harmony House, and we do the traveling.  Or if you don't stay at Harmony House you would come there for your treatments, journaling, and life coaching.  Our main focus is to keep your retreat focused and centrally located with as little travel and thinking as possible.   We take you out on the land for the ceremonies and do the treatments right where you are staying. This allows you to relax deeply and you only need to walk next door to your room. Our retreats provide you more time for relaxation, and introspection.  In our world of running from event to event, and constant hurry, our retreats are a time to stop and reflect.   In this reflective time, with guided tools, meditation and journaling, you are facilitated to reconnect to your spiritual essence.

What is the focus of your retreats?
Our total focus is you, and facilitating your individual journey on your spiritual path. We do not promote a particular philosophy or religion, other than reconnecting you to your own inner spiritual essence and the earth and nature.  Our focus is on giving you the tools to make decisions that resonate with your heart and inner knowing.   Many of our clients have closed their hearts, and lost connection to their intuition and inner wisdom.  We don't teach a lot of in doctrine, instead we take you into nature, and assist you to be still and listen. This journey, facilitates your journey home to your heart and inner knowing.

Why are so many being drawn to Sedona, its beauty, and the healing energy each year? To awaken to their true authentic spiritual essence and energy. There is deep inner wisdom burried deeply within most and it gets lost and burried in the chaotic busy life. Sedona awakens this spiritual knowledge and energy.

Why are all the spiritual retreat centers booked months in advance? Taking a break surrounded by beauty, brings your body, mind and spirit back to balance and assists you to release your stress. Reiki, massage, connecting to the land and other healing therapies, deepens this experience and provides tools to take home to extend this new found peace. Many seek this experience and Sedona is known for this type of healing

Nestled among the forests, rivers and green canyons, hidden in the open expanse of the Northern Arizona high desert,Sedona waits for you! Go ahead and heed the call! Book your retreat now.
