Sedona Full Moon & Stars Inspiration and Ceremony Circle

A joyful Sedona moon, sunset, and stars spiritual circle

Circles of Connection–heart to heart with celestial and earth energies.
Uniquely created for the season, moon cycle and participants.

Circles can occur any evening you prefer to schedule one. 

  • Full Moon and New Moon dates and timing are given below.
  • The dark sky nights when the moon is not out are an awesome time to stargaze and the Milky Way really stands out too.

This is personalized spiritual program in nature at a Sedona trailhead location:

  • Gain a feeling of the Spirit of Sedona: special qualities of the land, ancestral Native American and today’s metaphysical perspectives.  
  • Guided spiritual insight journeys to the drum to connect with spirit helpers and your personal inspiration.  We will connect with the seasonal energy.  We can also honor your personal theme/timing/life event.
  • Guided experiences to connect with the energies of  earth, sunset, moon, and stars.
  • Closing ceremony co-created under the full moon accompanied by rattles and drums.  We give voice, sound and movement to activate your full moon intentions.

Cost for 2 hour program:
$70 pp with 3 or more
($90 pp with 2; $160 with 1)
We meet at the site, transportation not provided.

Held outdoors at a red rock site in Sedona.  Folding chairs provided.

Summer is best time to view Milky Way galaxy in Arizona skies.
Circles can be arranged for lunar eclipses or meteor showers.
Celestial events are included in my Calendar.

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.
