Is this for me?
Hiking and Adventures
Ananda will be leading the group on some of his favorite hikes in the area. Having been to Sedona many times since 2012, he will lead you to extraordinary spots with sweeping views. In addition, he will bring instruments to serenade with mantras and heart songs. The hiking will be easy to intermediate level. Max 3 hours hiking round trip.
Yoga and Chanting
This retreat will also help deepen your love and practice of chanting, bhakti, yoga, and ceremony in a majestic and elevating environment. We will sing and dance our hearts open. We will rejuvenate, relax, and explore yoga as a practice of embodying spirit in a heart opening and devotional way. Through daily meditation and chanting you will refine your perspective of these practices and yourself.
