Together we will explore what makes Sedona such a special place...the earth energies, sacred sites, and beautiful red rock formations. According to James Tyberonn, engineer and geologist, Sedona functions as one of the 12 Sacred Portals on the Earth due to its cosmic alignment and intense magnetic earth energies. Ben Lonetree, an electrical engineer, demonstrated that the magnetic vortexes in Sedona effect brainwaves. The magnetic fields created more alpha/theta brainwaves which produce relaxation and assist meditation. Visitors to Sedona report experiencing healing, shifts in consciousness, and a sense of well-being.
Kathy will share photos and her personal experiences in Sedona over the past 14 years. The audience will be introduced to the concept of a vortex and be guided in a meditation to co-create and experience vortex energies. If your intention is to open yourself to experiencing divine presence and guidance, Sedona is a place you must experience to believe. Perhaps this presentation will whet your appetite for the Sedona retreat, with ceremony and personal time on the land, to be offered by Kathy later this year.
