From Past Trauma
Our Sedona Spiritual Retreats
Connecting People to Spirit and Nature.
You’ve taken a regular and ordinary vacation before. Now take a peaceful spiritual journey of self-care that will positively transform your life and bring you welcomed inner peace: a Western Spirit Sedona spiritual retreat in magical Sedona, Arizona.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Western Spirit Enrichment Center REMAINS OPEN for retreats. We invite you to chose love over fear. We are taking all the suggested necessary health precautions: suspending handshakes and hugs, sanitizing all surfaces, washing hands, social distancing, etc. Since we are a small facility and only take a maximum of four guests at a time, there is plenty of space. We are NOT in the high risk area of Phoenix or Tucson. We are in the small community of Sedona, which has a much, much lower number of virus cases. We believe you are safe here!
We are currently accepting reservations for retreats in September, October and November (we do not offer retreats during Arizona’s hottest months of July and August). Call now. (602) 540-5808
Take a deep breath, ignore the never-ending noise, and think deeply about what you want to put back into your life. This is your chance to define a new version of normal, a rare and truly sacred opportunity to get rid of the excessive “ordinary” and to now bring back only what works for you, what makes your life richer, what makes your family happier, what makes you truly proud and brings you joy.
The treadmill you’ve been on for decades stopped for awhile. Maybe you’ve been thrown off your rhythm and into confusion. You just might take a moment to consider this: What happened is an incredible and profound gift; what’s come to be known as “ The Great Pause”. Now that things are slower, can you see the bright Divine light that is you? The curtain is presently wide open. This crisis has given us a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see ourselves in the plainest of views. You’ve been given the opportunity to see the world simply stopped. Stores are closed. Restaurants are empty. Streets and six-lane highways are barren. This occasion has brought to light all of the beautiful and painful truths of how you live. Pay attention to how you feel right now, what you are thinking, what you finally want to truly say.
If you want to create a better “YOU”, a better environment for your family, a more-satisfying career, a more sincere and meaningful connection to others, you have to assign your life some purpose beyond working, spending, rushing and doing whatever it takes to anesthetize your feelings, longings and past hurt. Take this moment to discover and redefine who you truly are. A retreat week at Western Spirit can provide you with the guidance, ideas, tools, resources and me-time to realize your true potential and meaning of your life. Join us now!
Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted that you are here. Could it be a sign from the Universe that you have been guided to Western Spirit? We invite you to experience empowering and life-changing spiritual growth during an intensive, inspirational, transformational, and peaceful heart-centered week of personal growth, self-improvement, forgiveness, healing, meditation, and fun, through your own personal or couples spiritual retreat. All while surrounded by the beauty and magic of Sedona and the awesome Grand Canyon.
Self-Discovery, Healing, Personal Growth
Western Spirit Enrichment Center has been assisting and guiding thousands of people from around the world on their spiritual journey since 2001. We are a small retreat organization that accepts only a maximum of 4 to 5 retreat guests at a time, thus assuring each guest personal attention and complete confidentiality. We have a proven record of providing positive transformation and life-changing results for our retreat guests. Because we are an IRS-approved 501(c)3 non-profit organization (non-religious and non-denominational), we are able to offer you the lowest spiritual retreat rates and the best value for your money in the Sedona area, sometimes less than half of what other retreat centers charge. Our rates are simple and direct: $1,895 per individual or $2,395 per couple for the weeklong retreat or $1,895 per couple for the weekend couples’ retreat.
We are also the only retreat facility that offers our guests an all-inclusive package for one low rate. Western Spirit’s week-long retreats (Sun-Sat) include your comfortable lodging in a Sedona inn (with breakfast), all the empowering and life-changing self-care workshop sessions, guided meditations, a nurturing spa massage, a session with a Native American healer, and exciting outdoor activities in beautiful Sedona and the awesome Grand Canyon. Numerous wonderful restaurants are available for you to choose and enjoy lunch and dinner meals on your own. We are not a “concierge service” that sends you scurrying from one unknown healer to another during the week. We handle everything for you and relieve you of the stress, worry and planning of your Sedona spiritual retreat, so you can focus solely on your purpose of being here on retreat – resolving challenges and issues you are currently facing, finding forgiveness and healing, improving your relationships, discovering your natural state of self-awareness, joy and peace, and living a life of gratitude and abundance.
A spiritual retreat (also known as a “self-care” retreat) is a term for a peaceful “me-time” taken in a place of privacy and safety for self-care and improvement, meditation, personal growth and nourishment, and inner reflection. It is a time for loving and preserving yourself, for forgiveness and healing, for learning of your true purpose in life, for discovering answers to your current challenges and issues, for learning to establish personal boundaries, and for choosing love over fear. At Western Spirit, whether it is a personal retreat, a women’s spiritual retreat, a marriage retreat, a couples retreat, or an executive retreat, you will have the opportunity to do all of these things.
Through our special balance of enriching Workshops and exciting, fun-filled Outdoor Adventures, plus time for Rest and Self-Reflection, you will be guided along paths of self-care and discovery, personal growth and inner healing, regardless of your faith, religious background, spiritual practices or chosen lifestyle. We take care of the week’s agenda for your Sedona spiritual retreat, giving you the much-deserved “me-time” and space away from the stresses of everyday life so that you can focus on the true purpose of your retreat — self-discovery, personal healing, releasing habitual patterns and old trauma, uncovering your intuitive nature, improving life relationships, finding your own answers within, and learning to live a life of love, joy, peace, gratitude and abundance. Our Sedona spiritual retreats are a venue for personal change and Self-growth, for quiet meditation and conscious breathing, for listening to the wisdom of your heart, for becoming a conscious creator, for finding clarity to see current challenges and issues in a more loving way, and for making a positive and permanent shift in your life. NOTE: This is a spiritual retreat; our facilitators are not mental health counselors or certified therapists.
You’ll experience all of this, plus exciting outdoor adventures in the natural beauty of magical Sedona and the awesome Grand Canyon. Sedona was named the “most beautiful city in America” and, of course, the Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Call us now at (602) 540-5808 and join us for a once-in-a-lifetime spiritual retreat that you will remember forever. View our past guest testimonials below.
