Experience Beautiful Sedona
Sedona is a serene and magical place where people travel from all across the globe to hike, explore, and relax. The town is nestled beneath sandstone and limestone cliffs of deep red and vibrant orange. The Sandstone formations are world renowned in that they literally jut up out of the earth below creating fabulous towering structures that invoke awe and spiritual introspection.
The Sedona Vortexes are known to be powerful energy sites which aid travelers in their quest to move stagnant energy and can aid in their healing and deepen their spiritual practice. Historic artifacts and records confirm Sedona, Arizona has always been a sacred place to the Native Americans. The Sinagua lived in the area between 900 and 1350 AD building pueblos and cliff houses. Around 1400 AD the Yavapai and Apache tribes began to populate the area. These tribes and others have been known to consider Sedona and the surrounding area, the birthplace of their spiritualty. The nearby San Francisco Peaks, which tower at an elevation of 12,600 feet is considered sacred ground by the Navajo. It is a place where medicine men collected healing herbs for ceremony. The sacred waters from these peaks eventually reach Sedona’s Oak Creek Canyon, which flow through the town of Sedona today. The sacred pools combined with crystalline structures within the red rocks have become a mecca for seekers on their spiritual path.
