A Spiritual Adventure Retreat in the Heart of Sacred Sedona
You're walking on a rugged red dirt trail surrounded by upward twisting juniper trees while the sun gently warms your bare shoulders.
The smell of sage brush and manzanita fills your senses and you feel it in your soul that you are somewhere special, although you can't pinpoint what exactly it is.
Is it the wide open blue sky above you?
Is it the richness of the red dirt that surrounds you?
Your spirit is singing and swells inside you with the gentle reminder that You are always with you. How long had it been since you felt so connected to yourself?
As you continue your climb up a gently rising slope, the top of the trail is mere steps away and as it hits the horizon, you can feel the impending presence of something so grand and so deeply awe inspiring coming into your mind's eye.
Yes, the magic of Sedona has caught you.
Your breath catches in your chest as you reach the apex of your trek.
Your hand lifts to cover your heart.
Tears swell in your eyes, eyes that can barely believe the vastness of the monuments that called to you in the whispers in your dreams, now sprawl out before you.
The wind gently blows in your face as you realize you're amongst the giants of legends, far away from the crowds that clog the heartbeat of the city.
You are here, in the real Sedona.
With your hand on your heart and the sun on your forehead, you close your eyes and take in a new kind of breath, feeling Home swelling in your heart, where it has been waiting for you all along.
Your heart bursts open with gratitude at the sudden realization that YOU are home. And that you are the one you've been waiting for, all along.
