Orientation/Intention Setting (Together) – 0.5 hrs. Start Time: 9:30
Begin your journey with a session on the intention-setting sacred oil blend, a welcome packet, and orientation for your retreat.

Releasing Ceremony – 2 hrs. (Outside)
Your retreat will begin when your SpiritQuest guide takes you out for a special releasing ceremony. During this session, you will set your intention and identify blockages that have been holding you back. When you release these, you can begin to move forward and reconnect with yourself once again.
Healing the Family from Within – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
This remarkable spiritual healing process opens the doorway to transcend grief and transform your life. You will be gently guided to experience the hidden dynamics of your family system. Underlying entanglements locked into fixed patterns and unhealthy subconscious bonding can be released, giving you a chance for a profound sense of freedom and inner peace.
Learning to Communicate – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
The biggest obstacle our families learn to overcome is ineffective communication. During this session learn various techniques for heartfelt communication. Do you feel that you are not being heard? Is your family member talking over you? Does the communication divert from the issue at hand? If so, this session is perfect for families who want to honor each other’s feelings and the result is a clearing of issues/blockages that have been trapped in a repeating unhealthy cycle.
Medicine Wheel – 1.5 hrs. (Outside)
A Medicine Wheel is a physical creation of stones on the ground with pointer stones in each direction. It helps us with our “Vision,” to see exactly where we are and in which areas we need to develop to realize our full potential. Your guide will help you discover where you are in your life and which areas need to shift.
Relationship Dynamics – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
During this session, the practitioner will first observe as you tell the story of your lives together, then evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your family relationship. The key is to identify the underlying emotions being expressed in the way you communicate with each other. This information will be critical to the healing process because emotion is the music of the relationship dance. In order to be successful, you must learn to listen to this music and attune yourself to your family partners.
Respect, Honor, & Collage – 2 hrs. (Together)
This group session allows your family to discuss the topic of respect and honor. Learn what it means to respect each other. Explore the concept of boundaries and of self-respect. This session emphasizes the golden rule of treating others the way you would like to be treated yourself. Create a collage board for each member looking at the positive qualities each family member possesses. Discuss how selfish or self-centered behavior discounts these qualities and destroys harmony.
Canyon Journey – 3 hrs. (Land Journey)
Take off with your own spiritual guide into the Sacred Canyons of Sedona and discover the quiet place inside yourself. Let your connection with yourself and nature allow for a huge release. Be led by your totem guides to find clarity and peace of mind. This session takes place in a rich riparian ecosystem near an amazing creek in Sedona. Feel rejuvenated, cleansed, and born again into your new life. This will be a day unlike any other you have experienced.
Breaking Old Beliefs – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
In this session, you’ll learn how belief systems are the “instructions” you have in your subconscious. These instructions determine almost all aspects of your life, similar to how computer software determines what a computer will do. Many of these beliefs were formed early in childhood and have not been updated to a healthy adult viewpoint, which can cause numerous problems. By looking at the patterns in your life, the practitioner will help you learn to recognize your unconscious belief systems and how they are affecting you. Once the belief is found, it can be updated, at which point it loses its power over you.
Sound Frequency Bath – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
You’ll experience truly amazing sensations as the practitioner gently invites stuck energy to move or vibrate again… or over-stimulated energy to explore stillness in this session in our Retreat Center Sound Healing room. The different parts of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual beings resonate with different frequencies of vibration. This is the experience of not only health and vitality, but expansion, consciousness, and eventually transcendence. The Sonic entrainment that you will experience will send you into perfect alignment with the universe.
Relating with Awareness & Clarity – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
Break the old paradigm of how relationships function and create a new understanding of what conscious relating is all about. This session helps you understand that who you are today in this relationship is what is most important. Old patterns of relating are re-evaluated. Tools are brought in such as making clear agreements and learning to be accountable for your actions. Communication skills are explored as well as creating a new concept for moving forward or enhancing your relationships.
Spiritual Awakening – 2.5 hrs. (Land Journey)
Spiritual Awakening deals with deepening your connection with God/Source/Spirit and working with you at your Soul level. Straightaway we ask questions, and explore why you come here? What are your lessons, and challenges? What is your purpose? Additionally, we get in touch with you at your center, the Source of who you are.

Building Self-Esteem – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
How do you see yourself? Do you question your value or look to others for validation or self-worth? For instance, if you find yourself looking away from your reflection, then this session is for you. A person’s self-esteem is built and developed over time. Hence, the combination of wounded parental conditioning, faulty beliefs, and toxic relationships will lead to a person’s self-worth being damaged. Therefore, understanding your worth and meaning involves many intricate dynamics that need to be cleared and rebuilt. With a comprehensive and in-depth process, we help you peel back those layers to get to the real you. Undoubtedly, your true beauty will shine through as you shed away your old guilt and shame. We help you rewrite your story, laying a firm foundation of truth, integrity, and worthiness. We assist you in developing self-esteem, cleaning up your perception, and transforming from within.
Walking Labyrinth – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
This therapeutic session mirrors the journey of life. The use of the labyrinth as a symbol first appears among Native American cultures in Arizona around 600 BC. Evidently, this symbol represented the sacred path to the Creator. In English, the term “labyrinth” is generally synonymous with “maze,” but, surprisingly, there is an evident difference between the two: a maze is a complex branching puzzle with choices of path and direction; whereas a labyrinth is a straight pathway to the center, without any branching. As you walk in this session, you will take each step with intention.
Boundaries – 1.5 hrs. (Together)
