We are entering the season of self-reflection culminating in the vow and resolution-making of the New Year's. Our resolutions are well intentioned and full of energy, but often fail or even backfire.

Shamanism: The Embodied Way

By |2018-10-23T14:33:26+00:00October 22nd, 2018|Categories: All Blog Posts, Shamanism, Spiritual Growth|

Shamanism is commonly understood as a healing method that is nature-based, experiential, and guide-facilitated. It isn’t a formal system or ideology, and is pluralistic in its origins.

Fear, frustration, and anxiety, in many people, stems from a fundamental misunderstanding about the true nature of the self. Many times we over-identify with one aspect of ourselves, while ignoring other aspects. When you shine the light of awareness at yourself when you are in a quiet, concentrated space, who is there? Are you a [...]

By |2018-01-16T19:11:40+00:00January 16th, 2018|Categories: All Blog Posts, Health and Wellness, Self-Growth, Spiritual Growth|

There is no retreat center in the United States like SpiritQuest Sedona Retreats because we recognize the interconnected and interdependent nature of health and healing. The body cannot be healthy without activity and conscious eating. Misalignment in the body can also be caused by stress and tension that originates in the mind or the emotions. [...]

On Being Present

By |2017-11-28T09:33:10+00:00November 1st, 2017|Categories: All Blog Posts, Health and Wellness, Relationship Tools, Self-Growth, Spiritual Growth|

Often we associate “being present” with lovely and nice things: taking a vacation, hanging out with the kids, planting a garden, or making time for a favorite activity. While these things are part of a healthy, balanced [...]
