Western Spirit Spiritual Retreats
Connecting People to Spirit and Nature.
You’ve taken an ordinary vacation before. Now take a spiritual journey that will transform your life and bring you inner peace—Western Spirit’s spiritual retreats.
Experience empowering spiritual growth during an intensive, inspirational, and peaceful heart-centered week of learning, growing, forgiving, healing, meditation, and fun, through your own spiritual retreat. All while surrounded by the beauty and magic of Sedona and the Grand Canyon.
Self-Discovery, Healing, Personal Growth
A spiritual retreat is a term for a peaceful time taken in a place of privacy and safety for meditation, study, personal growth and inner reflection. At Western Spirit, you will have the opportunity to do all of these things.
Through our special balance of enriching Workshops and exciting, laughter-filled Outdoor Adventures, plus time for Rest and Self-Reflection, you will be guided along paths of self-discovery, growth and healing, regardless of your faith or religious background. We take care of the week’s agenda for your spiritual retreat, giving you the much-deserved time and space away from the stresses of everyday life so that you can focus on the true purpose of your retreat—reflection, self-discovery, and healing.
Western Spirit Enrichment Center
Located in magical Sedona, Arizona, Western Spirit Enrichment Center is a small, holistic, non-religious and non-denominational, personal growth and spiritual retreat organization.
Safe, Welcoming, Inclusive
We welcome and value everyone from all spiritual paths and walks of life.
Western Spirit is a non-religious and non-denominational spiritual (mind, body, spirit) retreat center. Since 2001, we have been offering a safe and welcoming place where you will be loved and accepted completely for who you are. You will be guided along a personal path of self-discovery, growth and healing regardless of your faith or religious background.
We have had retreat guests visit us from all over the world and from most faith and religious backgrounds, including Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Mormons, agnostics, and atheists. Our workshops are applicable and effective because they are non-religious and have less to do with the outer world and more to do with the inner “Spirit” of each person. We operate on the universal principle that Spirit (God) is love, all humankind is connected, and we all have our own answers within, regardless of our upbringing, faith, religious background, or current belief system. You are welcome and cherished for your unique gifts.
Enrich, Empower, Transform your Life
You are invited to learn, heal, and grow, during a week of discovering the awesome inner Spirit of YOU and exploring the beauty of Sedona, Arizona.
You will learn ways to enrich, empower and transform your life, and reach a higher level of spiritual consciousness. Western Spirit’s spiritual retreats are based on the fundamental truth that each of us has the answers within and we are all traveling on our own individual and unique spiritual journey.
Whether you come alone, as many of our guests do, for a Personal Retreat or Women’s Retreat, as a couple for a Couples’ Retreat, or in a group on an Executive Retreat, a Western Spirit spiritual retreat can benefit you immensely. You will leave feeling more peaceful, loving, centered, and empowered to choose the “right answer” for yourself. Thousands of our worldwide guests since 2001 have told us that these empowering spiritual retreats have changed their lives and left them with an awakened sense of gratitude and spiritual awareness!
