SpiritQuest can help you grow tremendously.

We believe finding the right teachers with the skill and integrity necessary to guide you through the process is absolutely essential. That’s why we have screened all the practitioners in our network to ensure they are the very best Sedona has to offer. This elite group of practitioners are true masters of their craft — experts at helping others reach their full human potential.

The SpiritQuest Healing Center is located in the very heart of Sedona, at the geographical epicenter of the area’s most important power sites: Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Airport Mesa, Thunder Mountain and Boynton Canyon. The natural energy emanating from these power sites is very beneficial to the work we do. The healing center is also blessed to be a customer of the Oak Creek Water Company. With fewer than 1000 local customers, this tiny company serves a very small portion of Sedona, and delivers some of the purest spring water in the U.S. directly to our tap without chemical additives.

Our retreats consist of 4-6 hours per day of private one-on-one sessions designed just for you. It’s an intensive personalized experience that will result in a far more authentic and transformative experience. Are you ready to do the work? Are you interested in reaching your full potential? If so then you are already heading in the right direction.

What we do:

— Help you break old destructive habits and negative thought patterns.
— Give you the option to have all sessions be private, or to combine private and semi private sessions.

All you have to do is be willing to take the first step. Give yourself some space and distance from your everyday life and come to a place of healing and serenity. You will gain clarity, vision and perspective.

No! We are a holistic spiritual retreat and do not have medical doctors or psychiatrists on staff. We require those with drug and alcohol issues to be clean and sober for at least 6 months before attending a SpiritQuest. We specifically reserve the right to cancel any session — without refund — if the practitioner determines that the client is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
That’s where our retreat specialists come in.  With so many different modalities to choose from, it’s important to work with someone who knows the practitioners, knows what they offer, and has personally experienced the sessions.  We’ll ask a lot of questions to determine the exact sessions and practitioners that are right for you.
SpiritQuest offers both personal one-on-one retreats and small group retreats conducted at our Retreat Center in AZ.

However, we also provide a very affordable option for those on a limited budget with our group retreats.
