Seated comfortably at the water's edge, you sit in quiet and feel the peaceful energy of the surrounding nature deep within you. In front of you, the water of Oak Creek trickles downstream and you can't help but feel like it is washing and clearing away everything that no longer serves you. You feel a sense of calm and happiness rush over you.
As you sit reflecting on your mother-daughter healing journey, you hear the chatter of birds in the nearby trees, and you welcome the warmth of the Sedona sun on your skin. In this moment, you feel alive.
Closing your eyes, you smile inwardly and feel an inner peace that you haven't felt before. The magical healing energies of Sedona have enveloped you and you give thanks for giving yourself this gift of healing.
In the distance you hear the laughter of your new-found friends that have taken this journey with you. You open your eyes and come back to the present moment.
You delight in the shift and transformation that has taken place from being surrounded and supported by this incredible group of mothers and daughters.
You are filled with gratitude because so much has shifted and changed within you and your mother-daughter relationship.
In just a few days, you have forgiven, lightened up and have dropped a heavy load of baggage that you've been carrying around. You have grown and expanded like never before and are ready to leave the past behind.
Your connection with each other has grown and so has your sacred bond. You understand yourself and your mother-daughter relationship better. You have started healing your relationship wounds and you feel empowered, uplifted and supported moving forward.
As you stand up and head back towards the group, you feel happy and excited for this new chapter of your mother-daughter relationship.
And this is only the beginning of a beautiful relationship that will continue to bloom, long after your time in Sedona ends.

WHY SEDONA YOU ASK?
Sedona is one of the most magical places in the world and we wanted nothing more than to share this gem with you! It is world renowned and know for it's energy vortexes and healing abilities. Trust us, you will feel the energy shift as soon as you arrive and set your sights on the awe inspiring landscape.
It's an absolutely stunning slice of heaven and just the sight of the towering red-rock formations, steep canyon walls and pine trees will bring you an overwhelming sense of calm, peace and relaxation. Any stress, anxiety or overwhelm you may have, will melt away immediately.
Sedona is our spiritual oasis where we come to unwind and reset and we couldn't think of a better place to facilitate a healing journey for mothers and daughters. We are beyond excited for the transformations that will take place during our time here together and we can't wait to show you this majestic playground for the senses.
IS SEDONA CALLING YOUR NAME YET?
Sedona is one of Arizona's smaller towns with a population of around 10,000 people and is located about two hours north of downtown Phoenix. It's a popular tourist spot and is a beacon for those seeking healing, wellbeing, meditation, spiritual guidance, art, culture and outdoor activities.
It has a low key vibe and everyone and everything moves at a slower pace which helps you take a step back from the busyness of everyday life. This sense of calm and relaxation enables you to tap into yourself and work through your healing.
It has a mild, dry desert climate and a vibrant cultural and arts community. Uptown Sedona is where you can find New Age shops, boutiques, art galleries, hotels, spas and restaurants.
In Sedona, there is something for everyone! You can spend your day soaking up the gorgeous views of the expansive red-rock mountains while grabbing a delicious pastry and coffee before perusing tons of unique crystal shops to collect one-of-a-kind pieces or local yummy eats like prickly pear jam.
You can also pamper yourself with a day of self-care. Enjoy one of the many relaxing spas or dive into your spirituality with a psychic or aura reading.
If art and culture is more your thing, you can head over to Tlaquepaque Art and Shopping Center and stroll through the many shops and galleries after grabbing a bite to eat.
Arizona is also home to many Native American tribes and Sedona is heavily inspired by the culture including a lot of the architecture and design.
If you love beautiful and unique hand-crafted jewelry and art pieces, you can find incredible Native American pieces all around the town.
On the outskirts of town, you can find a ton of well-know hiking spots and trailheads like Bell Rock, The Devils Bridge or Cathedral Rock. If you enjoy the water, you can check out Oak Creek at the gorgeous Slide Rock State Park...just be careful, the wet rocks are super slippery!
You can also go horseback riding, mountain biking, picnicking or if you're into more extreme activities, you can sign up to take a Pink Jeep Tour.
Beautiful Sedona has so much to offer and we can't wait to show you around!
To be announced! We will be hosting our 2024 Sacred Bonds retreat at a beautiful Sedona estate close to all the Uptown shops and restaurants
A taste adventure awaits you!
Beautiful Arizona is known for its Southwestern dishes that ignite the taste buds with unique flavors and spices influenced by traditional Mexican cuisine.
From the variety of spice combinations to the use of meat, chilis, corn, beans, onions, cilantro and hand-made corn tortillas, get ready to dive into the Southwest like you've never tasted before!
Sedona, specifically, is well-known for its cuisine and is home to many world-class chefs and restaurants that carefully create their menus based on the season. The city is a wellness sanctuary which is reflected in its commitment to use organic and locally grown fresh produce.
Throughout your stay with us, you will get to enjoy cuisine from local restaurants, a local personal chef as well as some delicious home-cooked breakfasts from yours truly! We will take care of all your meals, snacks and beverages.
Your mouth watering meals await and there’s nothing like a good meal to make you feel welcome and right at home!
In the open chef’s kitchen, fresh, locally grown ingredients are combined with careful and loving preparation to create delicious breakfasts and dinners.
Breakfasts will be light, nourishing and absolutely delicious! We will cook up a mix of traditional and Southwestern inspired dishes to get our days started. And one morning we will venture to our favorite breakfast spot with oodles of healthy organic options like acai bowls, smoothies and avocado toast.
Lunches on the other hand…will be entirely up to you! You will have free time each day at lunch so get ready to dig in and try something new.
As for dinners, our private chef will curate three delectable 3-course meals that will send the senses into overdrive. With unique pairings of spices and ingredients like prickly pear and chilis, traditional southwestern dishes will be reimagined. Delicious sauces, salsas and guacamole will flow and will give each meal its own tantalizing taste that will have you asking for more!
For our farewell dinner and celebration, you will be treated to a champagne toast before we zip you off to one of our favorite Sedona restaurants where we’ll enjoy an extraordinary 3-course meal. The coconut cream based gelato is to die for!
Between meals, you can peruse the assortment of healthy snacks like fruits, vegetables, nuts and granola bars that will keep you energized and moving from one activity to the next.
And don’t forget the beverages! Water, teas (curious to try a hibiscus or prickly pear tea?), and coffee will be available throughout the day.
Uniquely delicious food is powerful and has the magic to bring people closer together. It elicits conversation, laughter and can turn strangers into new found friends.
Cheers to new experiences and a cuisine adventure!

Each day, you will also have free time to relax, explore or check out some of the charming shopping areas nearby. This free time will help you take in all the experiences and integrate them into your system.
We are going to have tons of fun, but we are also going to be doing some deep healing work. And as an fyi...you'll need to drink a lot of water and will be completely exhausted come Monday. But, it will be totally worth it!
Sunday night we will be having our big dinner celebration and will be popping the bubblies before we head out for the evening. And...we have a special surprise before dinner too that we can't wait to share... we can hardly contain it!
In the evenings, we will be winding things down with a meditation or hypnosis to get you ready for a great night of sleep.
Monday we will say our goodbyes, but not before some morning movement and yummy breakfast! After breakfast, we'll come together with our soul sisters one last time for a special closing ceremony. It will be tear filled, but we will walk away with so much love, peace and happiness that we'll take back home with.
This retreat will be etched in your heart forever and we can't wait to give you this beautiful gift of healing, transformation and sacred bonding!
