Connect With Source!
Katherine’s hand selected practitioners for SpiritQuest Retreat Center will remind clients of their personal connection to Source, or to the creative energies of the Universe. They come from many walks of life and have diverse backgrounds.
Katherine’s gifted practitioners will guide clients to their own awareness and awakening. They are facilitators to lead individuals to their own process. When clients learn how amazing and powerful they are, when they learn to love themselves once again, when they become a “child of the universe” knowing that THEY are the ones who can heal themselves, then they will join those of us on the planet who are here to raise the vibration of consciousness.
The Sedona Retreat Experience:
Combining Eastern, Western, and Sacred Earth modalities, the SpiritQuest Experience will take clients to a place of wholeness through a very specifically designed program. SpiritQuest retreats are built of a synergistic series of sessions based on a paradigm developed by SpiritQuest owner, Katherine Lash. The retreat will not consist of random sessions thrown together, rather we will carefully consider which session should occur first and so on allowing one session to build upon another. SpiritQuest will then gather a team of specialists and form the core group, these are practitioners who will work with clients through-out the retreat. The journey will begin the morning after clients arrive at the tranquil Retreat Center and launch with a sacred ceremony out on the land.
We consider ALL of Sedona part of the retreat experience and because our retreats go DEEP, additional sessions will take place in private session rooms in practitioner homes or out on the red rocks of Sedona. If a client needs to cry or have a big release, he/she will have the space and freedom to do so…privately. This is NOT a spa experience or a vacation hang-out. A SpiritQuest Retreat is a life-changing experience of authentic self-growth and healing. It is a spiritual awakening. Our guests are never the same!
