Wholistic Women Living, LLC embarked on their 4th soulful journey to beautiful Sedona, Arizona. There was plenty of time to pause and play in a supportive space with certified coaches and reconnect with our wise women selves.
This three-night destination retreat was held at the award-winning Arabella Sedona, where you got to experience nature and discover yourself at this laid-back desert lifestyle resort.
Sedona, a land of timeless beauty, is surrounded by natural red rock sculptures and national forests. It’s suggested that Sedona, as a whole, is a vortex, a place in nature where the Earth is exceptionally alive and healthy.
Kelye Rouse Brown, founder of Wholistic Women Living, LLC, has been traveling to Sedona for over 30 years and says the more you develop your relationship with this land, the more it will reward you with magical experiences. Any season is a wonderful time to visit Sedona, but we find October’s average high temperature of 77 is the best for immersing yourself in this soulful splendor.
Our Sedona adventure began on Thursday evening with our signature Prickly Pear Reception to include what else, Prickly Pear Margaritas and some tasty Prickly Pear Flan and more at the Molé restaurant, fine cuisine of Mexico.
Each morning we enjoyed a hot breakfast followed by yoga dance, chakras, crystal energy and gentle yoga. Daily creative and personal growth sessions were facilitated by our Wholistic Coaches and fun red rock excursions each day added to the adventure. Stargazing and smore’s by the firepit were available every evening.
We explored Crescent Moon Cathedral Rock area with our new land guide, Crystal Starrweaver. It was such a treat with healing sounds, stacked rock cairns (rocks raised for a purpose) and more surprises in the most photographed spot in Sedona.
The next day we visited the West Fork Canyon area which is filled with diverse landscapes and excitement, including shopping for the best authentic Sedona native jewelry from the locals, a delicious lunch, and an evening Uptown with a scenic sunset gourmet dinner.
The final day was our closing and included a very special ceremonial ritual designed for all to share their enlightenment and plans for carrying it home.
In addition to our creative retreat program, there were opportunities to hike or bike, shop at Hillside and Tlaquepaque Arts Village with famous galleries, just around the corner, within walking distance, from our accommodations and/or visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross or the Stupa sacred landmark and so much more.
Our accommodations were in the heart of Sedona, so location, location, location was a big part of our 4th destination retreat. This was a new and exciting addition for this year.
We enjoyed our new sister insights, stories with women on the grow and wholehearted awareness to bring back and embrace Wholistic Women Living.
It was a time to explore, wonder and Be Whole at our Soulful Sedona 2023 Destination Retreat.
