They say that beauty is only skin deep. That does not apply to Sedona where so many visitors come seeking that which lies below the surface.
Beneath the skin of the red rock landscape, the Earth has a breath, the landscape has a pulse. Powerful vortexes are believed to unleash an energy field that resonates with all who come in contact. People travel from around the world to experience these swirling centers of energy that are conducive to spiritual healing, meditation and self-exploration. For many people, arriving in Sedona is just the beginning of their journey.
Sedona thrives as a center of the New Age movement. Over the years it has developed a global reputation as a place of enlightenment. Beyond the vortexes (the proper grammatical form ‘vortices’ is rarely used) a wide range of healing practitioners are ready to assist visitors on their spiritual quest. Connect with psychics, massage therapists, spiritual counselors, reiki masters, life coaches and shamans. There are also several metaphysical shops, bookstores and educational centers to assist in your personal evolution.
There is a welcoming, often healing, embrace to Sedona, as if your soul is being hugged. “Inspiring,” “uplifting,” and “rejuvenating” are feelings expressed by visitors over and over again. It begins with the mesmerizing beauty, yet the more time spent among these great stone temples, the more it becomes apparent that other forces are at work. There is something deeper here, buried beneath the red rocks. Discover it for yourself.
Anyone on a path of self-discovery, or just curious, can find out more from the Sedona Metaphysical Spiritual Association, an affinity group to the Sedona Chamber of Commerce.
