Sacred Self Retreat (June-2023): FAQs

Still have more questions? Let me help!

Q. When is this retreat?

This retreat is from Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 9. It is five days and four nights.

Q. Where is this retreat?
This retreat is in Sedona, Arizona, at a luxurious and private home where only our retreat members will be staying. The exact location, as well as a packing list, and other details, will be sent to you in a welcome email approximately six weeks before our trip.

Q. What does this retreat cost include?
Lodging, all meals & snacks, all healing/group programs (contained within the itinerary), ground transportation to and from the airport, and transportation into the town of Sedona.

Q. What is not included in the cost of the retreat?
Airfare and any souvenirs/food/items bought during the excursion to town and at the airport.

Q. What airport should I fly into?
You can fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where ground transportation will be provided to the retreat house. You can also fly into Flagstaff Pulliam, which is just 19 miles to the retreat house. If you fly into Flagstaff or any other airport, you need to secure your own transportation to the house.

Q. Tell me about the ground transportation from the Phoenix airport!
We will meet at a time & specific location at the airport, where we will board our van to the retreat house. The trip in the van is approximately 2 hours. We will have room for one suitcase and one carry-on bag.

Q. What time will the ground transportation leave the airport?
As of now, I am gathering the information for the flights. It will most likely leave around 2 pm so that everyone can arrive. If the majority of the participants arrive earlier, we will leave earlier for Sedona. If that is the case, we will enjoy a place to chill and relax until our retreat house is ready.

Q. How long is the ride from Phoenix airport to Sedona?
The ride is between 2-2.5 hrs.

Q. What is plant-based food? Please tell me about the meals provided.
For the retreat, a private plant-based chef will be on-site to cook all of our delicious, mostly organic meals.  Snacks, coffee, non-dairy creamers, desserts, herbal teas, and water infused with fruit/herbs/cucumber are also included. Plant-based meals mean vegan, which means no animal products. We are eating nourishing and high vibrational food so that we can raise our frequency and expand our consciousness. You will not be hungry, and there will be plenty of food! Our chef will clean up after each meal too!

Q. What if I have a food allergy?
Please let me know if you have a food allergy/intolerance.

Q. Tell me about the yoga on the retreat!
If you are looking for a hardcore yoga retreat, this is not that! We will be doing gentle yoga and movement each day so that we can get into our bodies. Light breathing exercises as well as fluid movement will be practiced. We also have a Yin Yoga Practice with hands-on healing with our first teacher, Brianna. This practice will have an extended savasana complete with lavender essential oil head massages to leave you relaxed and blissed out.

Q. Will yoga mats/blankets be provided?
Yoga mats will be provided. There are some throw blankets at the house, but it is not guaranteed each guest will have use of one. Bring a blanket if you like to be covered!

Q. Tell me about the Sacred Sites Excursion with the Shaman Guide!
I have had personal experience with Benny, our Shaman guide. He is an amazing human being who holds sacred space so beautifully. Our excursion will begin on the Medicine Wheel. The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. We will be going to a Sedona Medicine Wheel, where we will set intentions and connect with our animal spirit guides. Next, we will travel up to Cathedral Rock, via Crescent Moon Park. Benny is going to get us attuned to the place where the Hopi Native Americans believe the heartbeat of Mother Earth is able to be felt! Next, we will walk along Buddha Beach, where we will be led in a cairn or stone stacking meditation. Finally, we will end in a sacred pool plunge — either feet or full body — as a symbol of rebirth. This excursion is approximately 4.5 hrs.

Q. Tell me about the excursion into town!
Ground transportation will be provided to take us into Sedona for a shopping excursion just 8 minutes away! First, we will head to Tlaquepaque, which is an arts and shopping village in downtown Sedona. We will also head to Crystal Magic, a short ride away, the most beautiful store for crystals, cards, jewelry, and more! Our town excursion is approximately 3 hours.

Q. What are the healing rituals under the stars?
We will be doing healing activation rituals under the stars, either at our retreat house or very close by. Sedona is renowned for stargazing and has been named the world’s eighth International Dark Sky Community by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). Specifics of these rituals will be crafted as soon as they download for the intention and energy of the group.

Q. What is the average temperature in Sedona in June?
The average high in Sedona in June is 96°F  and the average low is 61°F.

Q. How do I sign up?
You need to select your lodging and purchase from there. You can either pay in full or put a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure your spot. If you select the $500 deposit, reach out to me to make a payment plan.

Q. Are there payment plans?
Yes! It takes just $500 to secure your spot. Reach out to me for payment plan options. Payment plans have just a little bit of interest. As anyone who has gone on retreat with me in the past knows, I am very flexible and understanding. If this is something you want to experience, I will work with you to do a payment plan that works for us both!

Q. Is this retreat right for me?
If you are a woman who wants to connect to her inner sacred self, in a luxurious and safe setting, with like-minded women, then this retreat is for you. Every detail is planned for your expansion in the most incredible setting! Feel into your body… she will know!
