GIGI'S RETREAT at SEDONA SACRED ROCKS
Do you know how luxurious it is to have someone else drive? 3 nights and 4 days in Sedona. Twin Hearts meditations, vortexes, Pranic Healing practice, horses, and healthy eating. Boom I'm in! (And it was around my birthday.)
There was minimal traffic during our ride up mid week and the subdued colors of the desert turned to deep earthy reds and greens as we climbed above 3,000 feet to Sedona Sacred Rocks.
That evening, there was a Full Moon trail ride with Meagan on horseback that evening, however, I chose to stay behind, listening to the coyotes and writing in my journal gazing at a gorgeous view of the desert floor from my window in the Deer Suite.
I had a fireplace in my room decorated with antlers and a Kachina figure, and yes, I can imagine how toasty it would be here in a light winters' snow.
The next morning, just before sunrise, Meagan took us on a short hike to the iconic Red Rock you see in travel magazines, overlooking the iconic Cathedral Rock for a Twin Hearts and Om Mani meditation.
I think I wept most of my way through GrandMaster's chant as we sat side by side calling for peace and healing. The colors of the land stay with you long after you've returned home, like being in a subtle dream.
Another highlight for me was taking in Master Hector's teaching along the banks of a creek vortex one afternoon. We streamed him live from Rome and strained to hear him with our ears from one of my teacher's phones, but our head and heart caught every word. We were chanting, legs crossed, as people splashed in the healing waters just a few feet from us. It seemed so natural. I stayed behind to put my feet in the waters and work on a pine needle basket, while the rest went back to town for an hour.
One night we had a concert in the Temple area at the resort. Meaghan (being part Algonquin Native American called to her ancestors (yes, I admit I was singing, too) as she drummed, then using these enormous crystal bowls for sound healing, bathed us in healing vibration that in me, penetrated my body and gently rocked me to sleep. I knew I fell asleep because I woke up from my deep cat nap snoring and drooling. (You know it's good when the drool comes out!)
Thank you to my teachers, Bill and Meagan, for organizing this trip; for feeding me homemade vegan foods and providing a soothing respite.
We did a lot and there was time for me to be still by myself. I'd like to go again next spring.
- Blessings, Gigi
