Lauded as among the most sacred and spiritually powerful destinations in the world, Sedona is a place to find oneself while getting lost in relaxation, meditation and healing energy.
There are several options for those seeking this sort of escape, but perhaps none as unique as these:
Vortex Treehouse at L’Auberge de Sedona
L’Auberge de Sedona’s newly debuted Vortex Treehouse offers guests a spiritual sanctuary to experience mindfulness, lightened by glowing views of Sedona’s surrounding Red Rocks. A bucket list transformative mind and body healing experience begins at their L ’Apothecary Spa. From customized yoga and meditation to ‘vinyasa vortex’ and sound healing, guests can take L ‘Apothecary Spa’s popular experiences to the Treehouse (yes, a real treehouse), or book a signature Vortex Treehouse Session. This series of four rituals is inspired by local sites where the energy is believed to be most intense, including Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, and Boynton Canyon.
Each session begins with directing guests toward an enhanced sense of presence, leads into a personalized guided meditation, followed by a sound bath, and closes with intention setting. This haven allows visitors to disconnect, set intentions and return to daily routine with revived focus. This one-of-a-kind experience is best coupled with a stay in a L’Auberge Creekside cottage, which boasts a cozy fireplace, outdoor cedar shower and private balcony for taking in the scenic surroundings. This summer, guests will also be able to indulge in newly re-imagined Vista Suites on property, which sit atop Oak Creek with breathtaking views of the Red Rocks. Top off the journey by making a reservation at the resort’s Cress on Oak Creek, which recently earned recognition as “One of the Top Ten Restaurants in the Southwest” by Condé Nast Traveler. www.lauberge.com
