*Sedona Retreat Tips, Questions and Answers*
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
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?
The beauty of Sedona is soothing to the soul. Red Rock vortex energies create a large magnetic field that assist in
recharging and clearing our energy field. Our society has become so hurried and chaotic that 90% of us have
adrenal burn-out. What does this mean? Most with adrenal burn-out feel fatigued, there is too much inflammation in the
body, which shows up as high cholesterol, stiff neck, and headaches, and more. Left untreated these symptoms lead eventually to
immune dysfunction, heart disease, and other chronic disease.
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
Nestled among the forests, rivers and green canyons, hidden in the open expanse of the Northern
Arizona high desert,
Sedona waits for you!
