We can do this moon and stars 2 hour inspirational program on dark sky nights when the moon is not out.  This, too, is an awesome time to stargaze and view the arch of the Milky Way overhead.

Or consider the 1.5 hour program that ends at sunset: Sedona Sunset Spirit Ceremony

Some of the experiences:

Milky Way galaxy is a special part of Sedona night sky viewing.

2022 Full Moon dates, program times:

What is coming to light in your life? What is your heart longing to express?

I prefer doing these circles the night before the full moon when the moon is just as full and rises about an hour earlier than on the calendar full moon.  That way you can enjoy it just after sunset.

Full moon night is shown in bold–the night before, however, is just as full and moon rises earlier.
