Our journey to Sedona in 2007 was phenomenal. Staying at the beautiful Enchantment Resort (http://www.enchantmentresort.com/) which is nestled in Boynton Canyon our group received numerous blessings. The weather was perfect and all our activities helped to open our hearts and awareness way beyond what anyone expected. Some were brought to tears by the beauty and insights they experienced while others couldn’t quite figure out why they felt so vibrant and empowered. Val and I were quite busy keeping track of what was going on, but that didn’t hamper our appreciation or experiences with the Sacredness of the Land. I’d have to say, however, that the highlight for us came the day before our group of twenty four arrived. We were with Shaman Clay Miller on an excursion to Shamans Cave. The remoteness, the quiet, and the surreal beauty of the area set the tone for us to embrace the rest of the week with awe and gratitude. Fortunately, everyone got to enjoy Clays expertise and guidance as he led small groups out to sacred places during our stay. We were also blest by Astarius (www.astarius.com) who created a Sound Healing Ceremony for us with his didgeridoo, Karl Anthony (www.karlanthony.com) who played and sang his heartfelt songs of awakening, and the entire staff of the Enchantment (www.enchantmentresort.com) who treated us above and beyond the call of duty. We are looking forward to planning our next trip to Sedona and will keep you informed. Please subscribe below so you too can receive updates on our travel plans.

Meditation for Beginners

Buddha was asked, “What have you gained from meditation?”

He replied “nothing.”

“However, let me tell you what I have lost: anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.”

J. KrishnaMurti, the great Indian master, once said “meditation is the end of becoming.”

I think that is my favorite definition because in this crazy, fast-paced world we [...]
