July 2022 - Sedona Soul Adventures

Celebrating our 20th Anniversary!

I can hardly believe it – it’s the 20th anniversary of Sedona Soul Adventures!

When I first came to Sedona in January of 1999, I had no idea of everything that was in store for me and the thousands of people who would come to connect with us. And I never dreamed that the transformations that people would have would be so huge.

I say so often that even after all these years and all these thousands of people, I’m still amazed at what happens.

It’s also been so gratifying that over the years we keep on receiving so many wonderful accolades:

  • “Best of Sedona” for Retreats for 2020, 2021 and 2022
  • “Best Marriage Retreats in the US” 2016-2022
  • “11 Best Couples Retreats Around the World” 2021, Bride’s Magazine
  • “10 lnfluential Women Leaders in Business 2022 – The Chiefs Digest
  • 30 Best Small Companies to Watch 2020 – Silicon Review
  • 10 Best Companies of the Year 2020 – The CXO Fortune
  • Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Small Companies in the US for 2019

Plus along the way, we’ve been featured on The Today Show, USA Today, Forbes Magazine, The Washington Post, Yoga Journal, and just this month there’s a new article featuring our Couples Retreats in Elle Magazine’s online edition. Wow!

If anyone would have told me 20 years ago that all of this was going to happen, I’m not quite sure I would have believed it!

In looking back, I’ve thought about some of the most amazing, poignant, and incredible things that have happened over the past 20 years. I’ve asked some of our fabulous past clients for permission to share their stories. And so many people have been so generous.

This one is from Susan Perkins and it’s so incredible… Here it is…

Wow, Susan, that makes tears stream down my face! Stories like this have made the past 20 years so incredibly rewarding.

Come to Sedona and experience for yourself the transformations that thousands of others have experienced over the past 20 years.

Egypt trip 2 - 2

Come with me to Egypt and see 2000 relics from King Tut that will be displayed for the first time! Join me March 9-22

Going to Egypt makes me so happy!

group_egypt-1024x768

This will be my 23rd trip to Egypt (!) and just thinking about it makes me smile. This is definitely another part of my life that amazes me – that I get to go to Egypt every year and share it with people who are as awe-struck about it as I am!

And this year I’m even more excited – if that’s even possible! Because the Grand Egyptian Museum is opening in November and among all the other incredible things, we’ll be seeing 2000 relics from King Tut that will be displayed for the first time! Isn’t that amazing?

GEM-Museum

The old Museum was built in 1905 and there have been so many incredible finds since then (including King Tut!), that it’s never been able to hold all the treasures. I’m going to be seeing things I’ve never seen before and I can’t wait! We’re going to spend an entire day there.

We are also on a new cruise ship (one I’ve never even seen) and I am told by my Egyptian travel partners that it is absolutely incredible!

We go to all the must see places:

temple-of-abydos
  • The Great Pyramid (including 2 hours of private time just for our group for ceremony)
  • The Sphinx (where we have special admission to do ceremony between the paws of the Sphinx — this is closed to the general public)
  • Temple Complex of Karnak
  • Luxor Temple (which we see lit up at night — it’s other worldly!)
  • Abu Simbel (the largest statues in the world)
  • The new Grand Egyptian Museum (to see the complete King Tut exhibit and all the other treasures)

And we go to places that the average tourist doesn’t go to, with special admissions provided for our group.

hieroglyphics-2
  • Tomb of King Tut
  • Tomb of Ramses VI
  • Tomb of Seti I
  • Isis Temple at Philae
  • Hathor Temple at Dendera
  • Horus Temple at Edfu
  • Kom Ombo (dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and Horus)
  • The Temple of Abydos
  • The Osirion (to see the Flower of Life)
  • Tomb of Queen Nefertari (which is so incredibly beautiful it’s called “The Sistine Chapel of Ancient Egypt”)

And now for the first time, we’ve decided to do a 5-day add-on to Jordan and Petra in between the two trips, so that people from each trip can experience these amazing places!

We’ll be going to Petra to see one of the most spectacular places on Earth, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and Jerash.

Petra was one of the most important cities on the ancient trading routes of the Middle East back in the 1200’s. And then it faded into obscurity and for many years people in the West thought it didn’t even exist, that it was a kind of Shangri La that was mystical and not real.

But in the 1800s, a Westerner disguised himself as a Bedouin and was taken there. It was re-discovered and became known as “The Lost City.” Now it’s become a Unesco World Site, because it is so extraordinary.

Do you remember the ending of the movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”? This is the one where Sean Connery plays Indiana’s father. Towards the end of the movie they are taken to this mystical place where the Holy Grail has been kept for millennia (that part isn’t true).

At the very end, we see them riding off into the sunset away from this incredible place. The picture above shows the incredible stone structure, and why this place is called “the Rose City.”

In addition to Petra, we’ll visit Wadi Rum, the place that is also known as “Mars on Earth”. The landscape here is so striking and so incredible that many movies about Mars have been made here, including The Martian (2015), The Last Days on Mars (2013), Red Planet (2000), Mission to Mars (2000), etc.

Many other films also have been filmed in Wadi Rum, like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Prometheus and Lawrence of Arabia. The real Lawrence of Arabia made his camp here during his campaigns. Wadi Rum is huge, over about 183,000 acres!

We’ll also spend an amazing day at a beautiful resort on the Dead Sea — on that day I intend to have a massage and a mud bath!

We will also visit the ancient city of Jerash. Jerash is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. And is sometimes referred to as the “Pompeii of the Middle East” because of its size, the extent of excavation and the incredible level of preservation.

Your Self-Critic Is Killing You! Here’s How To Shut Them Up

How big a part of your life is your inner critic? Do you ever say things to yourself like, “You’re so stupid” or “What’s wrong with you?” or “Why did you do that?!” If so, you’ve simply got to STOP! Because you’re killing yourself!

Watch my video where I talk about a scientific study that proves that your inner critic is killing you and hear about things you can do right now to get that inner critic off your back and out of your head.

They’ll connect with you on a deep level, getting to the root of the problem. Then they’ll custom design a retreat that is specifically designed to root out the blocks and gunk that are feeding that inner critic, bringing you back into peace and the experience of being your best self.

Lauren says after her Soul Adventure, “I understand who I am and I love me!”

“I was in a very dark place and my heart knew I needed healing and clarity. My soul adventure provided a safe place to journey through my pain and grief, gave me the tools to continue the healing process, and helped me become balanced and whole. I am no longer hardened by the world – I am soft and gushy! I no longer react in anger or frustration; I can breathe life and peace inside when confronted with difficult situations. I understand who I am and I love me! Thank you Sedona Soul Adventures!”

Egypt trip 2 - 2

Reason #1 to go on our Egypt trip – the new Grand Egyptian Museum
Join us March 9-22

I want to make sure you know about something that is happening in Egypt. The opening of the new Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM). And we’re going to go there on our trip March 9-22 2023!

I’ve been anxiously awaiting the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum for many years. It was originally supposed to have its Grand Opening in October, 2020 and then COVID made that impossible. It’s now scheduled to open in November, 2022, so it will be in full functioning order just in time for our trip in February!

tutmask

I’ve been watching them build this huge place for years – it’s very close to the Great Pyramid and it’s just minutes from the fabulous Mena House where we stay, so we have driven past it every time we go back to our hotel. It’s huge! One article I read said it’s the size of an airport terminal!

The original Museum was built in 1905, years before Tut’s tomb was discovered (in 1922) and almost an entire floor of the old Museum was devoted to displaying Tut’s treasures. I’ve been told that every single item found in Tut’s tomb (there are more than 5,000 items!) will be on display at the GEM.

And amazingly, King Tut’s treasures will be just part of the amazing things we’ll see at the GEM.

The incredible solar boat, huge statues, mummies, beautifully carved sarcophagy (coffins), incredible sculptures, the amazing colors that have remained after all these years, you’ll get to experience all that on this trip.

We are going to spend an entire day at the GEM drinking it all in and I can’t wait! Just seeing all the treasures will give you such an appreciation and understanding of the depth of ancient Egyptian civilization. They were building and carving and painting these amazing treasures for thousands and thousands of years. We’re so lucky to be able to see all this and to appreciate their knowledge and artistry even more than we already do.

I hope you’ll join me on this trip of a lifetime!

“8 Things Happy Couples Do When They Feel Disconnected”

I’m always on the lookout for good information about relationships and this week I read a great article by Brittany Wong, “8 Things Happy Couples Do When They Feel Disconnected”.

If you’ve been reading my newsletter for a while, you know that I was a divorce attorney for 20 years. And now I’ve been doing Sedona Soul Adventures for 20 years, helping people stay together.

So when I saw the title, I checked it out and I completely agree with her. Because happy couples who want to stay happy, know they’ve got to do something if disconnection is setting in.

Here are what she says are the “8 Things Happy Couples Do When They Feel Disconnected,” plus my comments on her 8 points:

1. They address the disconnect quickly.
The sooner the better.

2. They also make it a “we” problem instead of a “you” problem.
Laying blame on the other person doesn’t work and it’s going to get you exactly what you don’t want – more disconnection.

3. When disconnection happens, secure couples are more likely to respond versus react.
Going into anger or upset doesn’t work. Lovingly reaching out to your partner can start the reconnection.

4. They make a plan to reconnect.
Smart couples know that if something is starting to go wrong, it’s just going to get worse unless you do something about it.

5. They recognize the problem may be unrelated to their relationship.
What I’ve found in over 40 years of working with couples, is that usually it isn’t the other person and it usually isn’t the relationship that’s causing the trouble. More often than not it’s the triggering of older, much deeper issues.

6. They handle their partner’s feelings sensitively and are quick to ask, “How can I help?”
Rather than being demanding or confrontational, they reach out with love.

7. They know the disconnect is only temporary.
In a good relationship, both people have a belief that if they try to reconnect and do something about it, they can probably come back into connection.

8. They follow through.
Secure couples know that if disconnection is happening, they need to 1) Do something about it and 2) Follow through on doing something about it.

As I read this article, I kept thinking “yes, that’s right,” “yes, that’s right,” and “that’s exactly why the answer to disconnection is doing a Couples Retreat.”

After 40 years of working with Couples (20 as a Divorce Attorney and now 20 years doing Sedona Soul Adventures), I know that all of these elements are so true. When a couple goes into disconnection, they can feel it and it feels really bad.

Humans are genetically wired for connection and when that disconnection sets in, it throws everything off. Suddenly, work isn’t as satisfying; fun things you used to do aren’t as enjoyable; your connection with other people (even your children) can suffer. If you don’t do something about it, it can affect every single area of your life, even your financial abundance and your health.

That’s why over half of the things to do she talks about in the article are about Doing Something – doing something as soon as possible and following through.

Doing nothing is where the danger lies.

Thinking that everything is just going to somehow magically “turn around” without you doing anything about it, puts you straight on the road to Splitsville. I’ve seen it over and over again. You start to drift, the disconnection sets in, and then suddenly one person is having an affair (and feeling justified) or it finally gets to the point where there just doesn’t seem like there are any good reasons to stay together.

And I especially love it in this article that she is saying that happy couples recognize the problem may be unrelated to their relationship.

After all these years of working with couples, we see it over and over again that what’s usually causing most of the trouble for people are old wounds, blocks, things that happened in childhood, and generational problems that most people don’t even realize are affecting them right now.

Our Practitioners are masters at discovering and releasing all this “gunk” and bringing people back into connection on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. And that’s how the reconnection happens.

Sandy says, “We went to see if we could save our marriage. We left with a much deeper understanding of each other a connection we hadn’t experienced in years.”

Oh my gosh, isn’t that so amazing? They came to see if they could save their marriage. They left with a much deeper understanding of each other and a connection they hadn’t felt in years. That’s the magic of what we do.

If you’re feeling disconnected from your partner, the most important thing is you need to do something about it, you need to do it sooner rather than later and you need to follow through.

Egypt trip 2 - 2

Why group travel is so much better when you go to Egypt. Join us for Return to Egypt (March 9-22) plus our Jordan and Petra add on (March 4-9)

When I was in my 20’s I remember telling myself, “I will NEVER go in a group to travel anywhere.” I would see people traveling in groups with their tour leader carrying a flag or blowing a whistle, or worse, people having to wear name tags or beanies! “I will never travel like that”, I told myself.

Then I came to Egypt for the first time in 1983. This was before the internet and I did all the planning for the trip and the planning took forever. It was a fantastic trip, but one of the things that I kept seeing everywhere we went, was that groups were able to get into places that my boyfriend and I couldn’t get into on our own.

The first group trip I ever went on was a trip to Egypt in 1995. It was unbelievably fantastic. As now, Guardian Travel was our guide and there were things we were able to do because we were with Guardian Travel and because we were in a group…

group_egypt-1024x768

Things like 2 hours of private time inside the Great Pyramid and being able to actually go down and be between the paws of the Sphinx (where the public isn’t allowed to go). We were able to do ceremony and meditations in these amazing places because it had been specially arranged for us.

egyptcamel

I was drawn to go back to Egypt again in 2000, again with a group with Guardian Travel. I wasn’t the tour leader, I was just part of the group. That trip was even more amazing than the one in 1995. There was such a diverse group of people on that trip, including people who were so excited about the alternative explanations for things like the Great Pyramid.

GEM-Museum

I figured this was going to be my last trip to Egypt, so I bought a lot of stuff. The shopping was incredible and I told myself I would never be coming back here again!

Little did I know that my life would take such an interesting turn and that in 2002 I would found Sedona Soul Adventures and in 2004 I would start taking groups to Egypt each and every year.

hieroglyphics-2

What I have discovered in all these years and what the people who have gone with me on these trips have discovered is that going with other like-minded people to these amazing places adds such an incredible dimension to the trip. And because we’re part of a group and connected with Guardian Travel, we get to do things that the typical tourist doesn’t get to do.

And this year they’ve done it again! They’ve been able to make arrangements for us to have special private passes to the Tombs of King Tut, Seti I, and Queen Nefertari. These tombs are spectacular!

“The Egypt trip was truly phenomenal! I have never done traveling in a group before and I will honestly say that I did not think I would enjoy a ‘group’ trip as much as I did. It was most definitely my Journey of a Lifetime!!!”
~ Linda Kaczor

egypt-columns-night

One of the things that is so fantastic about our trips is that typically our people fall in love with each other within 48 hours. So even if you’re traveling alone, you’re not traveling alone! You’ll have a bunch of friends with whom you’ll share these amazing experiences, many of whom will become friends for life.

“Sedona Soul Adventures trips are different. Such amazing people are drawn to these trips–it’s not like traveling with strangers, it’s like traveling with dear friends you haven’t seen in a long time. That is truly how I felt on both my Peru and Egypt trips.”
~ Elizabeth Stevens-Pande

Are you feeling uncertain about your future?

Isn’t it weird and upsetting that just as it appeared that things were getting better from the past 2 years of the pandemic, now new problems are weighing on people?

The pandemic has been so stressful for so many people and as we started to come out of it over the past year, I saw people starting to feel more and more like we were turning the corner.

But then all of this other peripheral stuff from the pandemic has gotten piled on – inflation has gotten absolutely crazy, home prices and rent are rising astronomically, supply chain issues have continued to make more and more things not available or cost way more than usual, so many people have quit their jobs that businesses are closing or reverting to much shorter hours, economists say we’re headed for a recession, some large companies have started doing layoffs, etc., etc., etc.

Add in the political situation, mass shootings, and wildfires — sometimes it can feel like everything is just going to hell in a handbasket.

Or not.

It sort of comes down to two questions:

  1. Are you living your life in connection?
  2. Are you living your life purpose?

What’s happening for most people is that they are living their lives in disconnection on one or more levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. When you’re in disconnection you have no solid foundation. When you don’t have a solid foundation on the inside, everything that happens on the outside bats you around like a mobile home in a tornado.

If you aren’t living your life purpose or if you don’t know what your life purpose is, you will most likely feel lost most of the time. There’s no compass, no direction.

Are you feeling uncertain in these uncertain times?

Here’s the truth — You don’t have any control over what the government does, how your landlord increases the rent, how much corporations charge for food, whether or not monkeypox turns into another pandemic, or what other people do.

The only thing you have control over is YOU.

You have control over how you’re reacting to things, how you’re thinking about things, how you’re feeling about things, how you’re talking about things, and what you focus on.

Many people don’t feel like they have that control because they feel controlled by circumstances outside themselves or other people.

If you DON’T want to live in a constant state of anxiety and uncertainty, you need to take back your life.

You need to come back into connection.

You need to be living your life purpose.

When you’re living your life in connection, everything flows. When you have that solid foundation, it doesn’t matter what’s happening on the outside, you still are feeling grounded and peaceful.

When you know your life purpose and are living it, you always know what to do and what direction to take because you’re always moving in the direction of your purpose.

The key is removing the blocks that are holding you back, finding clarity, visioning out where you want to go, and shifting into that new reality.

It’s actually much easier than you’re probably telling yourself it is. Look at what happened with Lashana in just a few days with us:

Like most people, Lashana was feeling uncertain and disconnected. She didn’t know her purpose and had no idea what the future held in store for her. That’s a terrible place to be.

She came to us and we did what we do best – we found, released, and “healed the old wounds” – the blocks and gunk that were holding her back. Then we brought her back into connection on all the levels and “unleashed the goddess within,” giving her the “clarity I need to manifest my dreams.”

How fabulous is that?

I love her words so much because she really gets what we do. First, we spent time with her starting to figure out what was holding her back. After connecting with her, we custom designed the perfect retreat for her. As she says, her “sessions were curated to meet my specific needs.”

She really understood that’s what makes a Soul Adventure so incredible.

Because it’s all focused on YOU.

We spend time really figuring out what is holding YOU back, what YOU need, and what it’s going to take for YOU to have the life or relationship of your dreams.

Then we put together your perfect retreat – sessions where you’re working one-on-one (or two-on-one for a Couples Retreat) in private, with our Practitioners who are Masters at taking you from where you are to where you want to be. Giving you the clarity you need to manifest your dreams.

That’s why group retreats don’t work. What brought you to where you are is different from what brought the person next to you. What is causing your disconnection is different from what is causing their disconnection. The healing YOU need is different from the healing they need.

And who wants to really open up about their fears and failures in front of a bunch of judgmental strangers?

Lashana loved being with our “compassionate” Practitioners – they make all the difference.

Are you tired of feeling uncertain, uneasy, anxious, and disconnected?

Do you have a deep desire to truly start living your purpose? To get clarity on it once and for all, and really start living?

Is your relationship nurturing you in the ways you want to be nurtured?

I believe we come to this planet with a birthright to have a happy, fabulous, satisfying life, full of passion and purpose. If that’s not happening for you, isn’t it time to do something about it?

Divorce Attorney Shares Relationship Checklist

Those of you who have been with me for a number of years know that I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska. And now for the past 20 years, I’ve been doing work with couples helping them stay together. Funny, isn’t it?

A couple of years ago I did this video and I came across it again – and it’s just so important.

It’s a Relationship Checklist. These are what I see as the most insidious things that cause the biggest problems (and issues that lead to problems) in a relationship. Some of them might not be the usual things that you think of…And this is all based on my over 40 years of working with Couples.

Take a look at yourself, and at yourself within your relationship, as you go through the checklist.

Even if you don’t like all your answers to the Checklist, don’t despair, there is hope!

We see it all the time. Come to Sedona and do a Couples Retreat.

One of our Soul Guides will speak with each of you separately, really getting at what’s going on, what the issues are and what both of you want. Then they’ll put together the perfect retreat that’s right for the two of you.

Because each retreat is completely custom designed and the sessions are all completely private (not in groups), you’ll get exactly what you need. It will bring you back into the love and connection you’re craving.

PLUS, I’m so incredibly excited to tell you that we have now added a 5-day add-on to Jordan and Petra!!

Here’s your chance to go on this trip of a lifetime, but you must act fast!

I’m even more excited than usual (and remember, this will be my 23rd trip to Egypt!) because:

  • The incredible Grand Egyptian Museum will be opening in November.
  • We’ll be on a fabulous new cruise ship that I’ve never been on before.
  • I’m finally taking a group to Jordan and Petra! I went there the first time in 1983 and I’ve always wanted to go back.

egypt-pyramid-camel

I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally see the new Museum!

GEM-Museum-2

We’ve been watching its construction for many years and it’s HUGE!

The old Museum was built in 1905 and there have been so many incredible finds since then (including King Tut!), that it’s never been able to hold all the treasures. I’m going to be seeing things I’ve never seen before and I can’t wait! We’re going to spend an entire day there.

We are also on a new cruise ship (one I’ve never even seen) and I am told by my Egyptian travel partners that it is absolutely incredible!

We go to all the must see places:

temple-of-abydos

  • The Great Pyramid (including 2 hours of private time just for our group for ceremony)
  • The Sphinx (where we have special admission to do ceremony between the paws of the Sphinx — this is closed to the general public)
  • Temple Complex of Karnak
  • Luxor Temple (which we see lit up at night — it’s other worldly!)
  • Abu Simbel (the largest statues in the world)
  • The new Grand Egyptian Museum (to see the complete King Tut exhibit and all the other treasures)

And we go to places that the average tourist doesn’t go to, with special admissions provided for our group.

hieroglyphics-2

  • Tomb of King Tut
  • Tomb of Ramses VI
  • Tomb of Seti I
  • Isis Temple at Philae
  • Hathor Temple at Dendera
  • Horus Temple at Edfu
  • Kom Ombo (dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and Horus)
  • The Temple of Abydos
  • The Osirion (to see the Flower of Life)
  • Tomb of Queen Nefertari (which is so incredibly beautiful it’s called “The Sistine Chapel of Ancient Egypt”)

And now for the first time, we’ve decided to do a 5-day add-on to Jordan and Petra in between the two trips, so that people from each trip can experience these amazing places!

We’ll be going to Petra to see one of the most spectacular places on Earth, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and Jerash.

Petra was one of the most important cities on the ancient trading routes of the Middle East back in the 1200’s. And then it faded into obscurity and for many years people in the West thought it didn’t even exist, that it was a kind of Shangri La that was mystical and not real.

But in the 1800s, a Westerner disguised himself as a Bedouin and was taken there. It was re-discovered and became known as “The Lost City.” Now it’s become a Unesco World Site, because it is so extraordinary.

Do you remember the ending of the movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”? This is the one where Sean Connery plays Indiana’s father. Towards the end of the movie they are taken to this mystical place where the Holy Grail has been kept for millennia (that part isn’t true). At the very end, we see them riding off into the sunset away from this incredible place. Here’s a picture that shows the incredible stone structure, and why this place is called “the Rose City.”

In addition to Petra, we’ll visit Wadi Rum, the place that is also known as

“Mars on Earth”. The landscape here is so striking and so incredible that many movies about Mars have been made here, including The Martian (2015), The Last Days on Mars (2013), Red Planet (2000), Mission to Mars (2000), etc. Many other films also have been filmed in Wadi Rum, like Transformers: Revenge of the FallenPrometheus and Lawrence of Arabia. The real Lawrence of Arabia made his camp here during his campaigns. Wadi Rum is huge, over about 183,000 acres!

We’ll also spend an amazing day at a beautiful resort on the Dead Sea — on that day I intend to have a massage and a mud bath!

We will also visit the ancient city of Jerash. Jerash is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. And is sometimes referred to as the “Pompeii of the Middle East” because of its size, the extent of excavation and the incredible level of preservation.

What an amazing addition this will be to this already incredible trip!
