Western Spirit’s Sedona Spiritual Retreats

Connecting People to Spirit and Nature

You’ve taken a ordinary vacation before. Now take a spiritual retreat of me-time and self-care (4 days, Fri-Mon) that will positively empower and transform your life, bring you inner peace, increased self-love, emotional healing, greater personal awareness and sense of purpose, and substantial improvements in health and well-being at Western Spirit Enrichment Center’s Sedona spiritual retreats. Call us at (602) 540-5808 or contact us by completing our INQUIRY FORM here to learn more.

Western Spirit’s retreats are “spiritual” in nature and not religious. We believe spirituality goes beyond organized religion and involves the recognition of a belief or feeling that there is something greater than one’s self (God, Source, Universe, Higher-self), something more to life than just being human, and that the greater whole of which we are a part is divine in nature and all connected. It involves an individual’s search for meaning and purpose in life. It’s about striving for inner personal growth and the meaning of our intentions, actions, responsibilities, and life experiences. Spirituality involves exploring the universal themes of love, compassion, peace, wisdom, truth, identity, and something greater in life.

Western Spirit is universally recognized as one of the best spiritual retreats in the U.S. Check out our hundreds of testimonials from past retreat guests and our dozens of 5-star Google reviews!

Our retreat founder and workshop facilitator, Marian Carol, MS.Ed., has led hundreds of retreats with thousands of guests and is featured in the book “The Top 101 Experts Who Help Us Improve Our Lives”.

I now meditate and angel write daily. I quit drinking; I secured a new job; and I am studying to be a counselor. I became a Reiki practitioner last year and I found my life’s purpose and I remembered who I really am at my soul’s core. You guys are truly angels on earth!! – a recent retreat guest in 2022)

2. What will I experience during this Sedona spiritual retreat?

What you learn and achieve during your Sedona spiritual retreat depends primarily on you. With the proper attitude, intention and follow-up, you will experience a strictly confidential, transformative, life-changing weekend of 1) self-discovery and inner reflection, 2) learn to honor your suppressed emotions, 3) forgive and heal past trauma and old wounds, 4) transform fear into love, 5) develop your intuitive guidance, 6) improve your relationships, 7) learn your true purpose in life, 8) increase your self-esteem, 9) discover inner peace, love and joy, and 10) change your life into one of abundance and gratitude.

3. Where is the retreat located?

Western Spirit is centered in Sedona, AZ, once voted “the most beautiful city in America”. It is located in red rock country at 4,500 ft elevation and is renown for its natural beauty and superior outdoor opportunities. Sedona also has a worldwide reputation as a serene spiritual destination known for its sacred vortex sites, that is, “power spots” long identified by past indigenous people for their spiritual healing energy. Your Sedona spiritual retreat will include numerous empowering workshops and meditations held in a nearby Healing Arts Center and significant time in exciting outdoor activities in Sedona and the (optional) Grand Canyon.

4. What will be the cost of my Sedona spiritual retreat and will I have private accommodations?

Western Spirit’s spiritual retreat rates are simple and direct: $2,395 (+ tax) for individuals and $2,895 (+ tax) for couples. Our Sedona spiritual retreats are all-inclusive of your 4 nights private room lodging in Sedona, all the empowering workshops, and the outdoor activities. Meals are not included because we have found that guests have differing food tastes and budgetary limitations. Additional Sedona activities or souvenirs you may wish to choose on your own will be extra costs for you. Because we are a 501c3 non-profit organization, our spiritual retreat rates are among the lowest and best value in the Sedona area.

5. What types of Sedona spiritual retreats do you offer and what is the size of your retreat groups?

Western Spirit is a small, all-inclusive (non-religious & non-denominational) organization that accepts only 4 to 5 guests at a time, allowing more time for personal attention, bonding and group synergy. We offer personal retreats, women’s retreats, couples retreats and marriage retreats.

6. What is included in my Sedona spiritual retreat?

Your Western Spirit Sedona spiritual retreat is all inclusive of: 1) your comfortable lodging in a local inn for four nights (Thu-Sun), 2) eight empwering and life-changing workshops, 3) daily guided meditations and mindfulness practices, 4) a session with a Native American intuitive, 5) a tour of Sedona’s beauty and energy, 6) a tour of an ancient Indian ruins, and 8) a nurturing spa massage. No other Sedona retreat offers you so much for so little!
