As many of you know, I spend a considerable amount of time in Sedona each year guiding and working with other practitioners. I have to tell you this one fact: VISIT SEDONA SOON!
The truth is that Sedona's tourism, always important to the region, exploded last year during COVID. It was one of the few places that stayed open and had loose restrictions. There was an over 30% INCREASE in tourism there last year, while the rest of the world seemed shut down.
That trend has shown no signs of slowing. Now that Sedona has matured as a world class destination, it seems the boom will only accelerate. There is a wealth of masterfully imagined restaurants presenting a variety of cuisines. The accommodations are varied and can fit any type of lifestyle you prefer, from the swank to the simple. Tours explore everything from nature to spirituality to wine country and can be packed full of adventure. You can sit in Oak Creek all day doing nothing or you can ride a helicopter up to the Grand Canyon and back.
For me, the work of meeting people in Sedona has been a real blessing. I take folks to the Buddhist Peace Park and have partnered with local vendors to conduct tours out on the land, primarily doing nature exploration and energy healing at the vortexes.
It's also a great idea to have driving pre-arranged if you can afford it. Sedona's boom has been well-managed on every front except when it comes to the roadways. Unfortunately, there tends to be a near-permanent bottle-neck during daylight hours at the roundabouts south of the tourist area.
If you need some ideas on what parts of Sedona to avoid during peak times and how to plan around disruptions, don't hesitate to reach out.
I arrange tour programs for folks anywhere from 1 to 5 days in duration. My list of local vendors has been heavily vetted and I really only work with proven, world-class specialists and providers -- everyone from local private chefs to bodyworkers, acupuncturists and adventure guides.
Of course, if you just want to meet me out on the land for half a day of vortex discoveries or for a guided session at the Peace Park, don't hesitate to reach out. Whatever I can do to help make your trip to one of the sacred joints of our planet more pleasant and healing, I'm there to help you make it happen.
