sedona Retreats

You'll plan and pay for your own travel and lodging. Register early to get travel deals.

  • Fly into Phoenix (direct flights) or Flagstaff.
  • Drive to Sedona. The pilgrimage, getting there, is part of the experience.
  • Coordinate 3 or 4 to a share rental car (you get a roster) or
  • Take this affordable easy shuttle or find your own: Groome Transportation

ALL RETURNING RETREATERS - Bring flowers! The grocery has inexpensive flowers, cut or in pots.  We have vases. Roses are great and last long. You'll organize your service tasks on day one - it's enjoyable and easy.

Meeting House:

100 Golden Eagle Dr, Sedona, AZ 86336. It's in West Sedona. A few repeat retreaters will share this house with Lola and Scott - ASK - first come first served! We have this house from Saturday March 2, checkin 4pm, to Saturday March 9, checkout 10am.

LODGING:

You reserve and pay for your own lodging, separate from the retreat. You could share rooms and save - you are only there to sleep, shower, and have breakfast. Retreat days are long.

Anyplace in "West Sedona" will be near the meeting house. Don't delay, they book up:

  • AriBNB has affordable rooms, small studios, and Tiny Homes.
  • Hotels.com offers many options and great prices, from economy to luxury. Create a membership on their site, then search. Many are marked "refundable," giving you flexibility to switch in case you find a better deal or decide to share with a new friend. 
  • We have stayed at Sedona Real and it is VERY nice if it fits your budget.
  • Remember, you won't be in your room much during the 5 days. We meet 12 blissful hours a day and are outdoors a lot!

FOOD:

Purchase your own breakfast food, or eat in your hotel. Lunch and dinner are served at the retreat. Tasty choices of vegetarian, carbs, meat and fish. The field of resonance is so strong at the retreat no one has food sensitivities or food issues at these retreats! It's a great opportunity to free yourself from food restrictions.

RETURNING RETREATERS: Please bring flowers, we supply vases. Roses are great and last long. Grocery stores have nice, inexpensive flowers. Florists are expensive. 


Germany Travel Planning

If you're worried about not speaking German, many Germans speak English, and are very helpful. Lola speaks no German and finds it wonderful to visit there twice every year since 2012.

Some retreat details are different for this location.
You will stay and we meet at the lovely and comfortable Sonnestrahl Seminarzentrum.
Sebastian-Kneipp-Straße 1, 88353 Kißlegg, Germany
+49 7563 1890

MEETING TIMES:

Days 1- 4, 9am to 9pm. Day 5 9am to 3pm. No early departures please. 
Arrive the day before your retreat to check in, relax, and be on time.
No early departures please. Every moment is important.

LODGING and meeting venue is Seminarzentrum Sonnenstrahl.

Lodging is separate from tuition.
You pay your lodging directly to the retreat center, Sonnenstrahl, at the time of your stay.
Please contact them directly to book your room and meals: +49 7563 1890
You may ask them to add extra nights to the beginning or end of your stay.
Rooms are economically priced, with single, double, and dorm options. Includes 3 meals per day, tea, water and fruit.

MEALS:

The retreat center provides us with delicious healthy breakfast buffet, a lunch buffet, and a dinner buffet with many choices!

Meals are freshly prepared in the house, largely vegetarian, and the ingredients are sourced as much as possible from regional organic farming. The food is not only healthy but also super delicious.

Interestingly, participants find that their intolerances do not exist during their retreat period (and when they're ready to let them go, they're gone forever) and that strict, dietary regulations are not as necessary as they used to be. That's because we are in an enormously powerful state of grace, and most people leave these restrictions behind them permanently (as well as many of the other limitations they leave behind in retreats.)

TRAVEL:

Fly in early enough to allow for canceled flights and delays.
Please see the Sonnestrahl website for directions and travel help information. 
You may coordinate Air, Car, and Rooms with a few other participants if you like. You'll plan it yourself, using your retreat roster that is listed in your pre-retreat section. 

You will not need a car at all during your stay at the retreat center.


California Retreats

Currently inactive, replaced by Sedona.

TRAVEL:

  • Fly into San Diego.
  • California retreat venue is 35 minutes up into the mountains from the San Diego Airport. 
  • You'll get the exact address after registration.
  • You'll plan and pay for your own travel. The earlier you register, the lower the airfares usually are.
  • Many people add on time at the beach before or after the retreat!

Ground transportation:

  • You only drive to the retreat and back to your room each day.
  • Using the roster, coordinate shared rental cars, 3-4 per car. Some Californians drive their own cars to the retreat, so if you ride with them, please contribute to gas.
  • The pilgrimage, getting there, is part of the experience.
  • We prefer Lyft to Uber if you need a ride from airport to hotel and back to airport. Then you can carpool around here.
  • Near the airport is a cool restarurant/bar on the water called Coasterra. Nice place to hang out waiting for your buddies to fly in to carpool to Alpine. 

LODGING: Book asap! Rooms FILL UP AROUND HERE.

You reserve your own lodging, and pay for lodging in addition to the retreat.

  • We'll be posting the exact hotel rates here soon. You are truly only there to sleep. Your room really does not matter.
  • Airbnb has some near the venue in 91901.  

MEETING TIMES:

Days 1- 4, 9am to 9pm. Day 5 9am to 3pm. No early departures please. 

FOOD:

Eat the nice included hot or cold breakfast if you stay at the hotel. Amazing lunch and dinner are served at the retreat, cooked with love by Scott. There is a tasty selection of vegetarian, carbs, meat and fish. The field of resonance is so strong at the retreat no one has food sensitivities or food issues at these retreats! It's a great opportunity to free yourself from those.

You could meet other participants for dinner the day before the retreat or at the end of day 5.
