CALENDAR  2021:

Sedona Retreats
Full – New Moon Circles
Ceremonies and Programs
Celestial Events
Hopi & Navajo programs

Auspicious and inspiring times for ceremony and circles:

  • Full Moons and New Moons each month have energetic effects.
  • Solstices and equinoxes are the major seasonal turning points. The mid-season times (half-way between, i.e. May Day) are also subtle turning points in the cycle of the year.
  • Celestial events–comets, meteors, eclipses
  • Holidays, sunset, dawn
Programs can be created at other dates too.

For those who prefer to expand horizons from your  home base:
These programs and retreats can be modified as personalized on-line programs for 1 or more people.
