This retreat helps to release layers of blockage and past wounds so you can heal and re-pattern on a deep level, making breakthroughs that often can take years of traditional therapy.

This retreat will help to reveal your divine blue print and soul’s path of destiny. Through Vedic Astrology, vision questing and guided inner journeys you’ll receive clarity and direction. Sedona was traditionally known as a pilgrimage place and vision quest site for the native people of the region and is a powerful place to renew your life’s vision.

Couples Retreat- This retreat will enhance a greater emotional and spiritual connection with each other. Empower yourself and your partner with tools to create a relationship full of love, appreciation, respect, and passion. Each retreat is customized specifically for the couple and can include: healing emotional wounds from the past and learning how to truly forgive, learning specific techniques that will help you communicate better, gaining clarity about what you really want and need from your relationship so you can co-create the life of your dreams.

Sedona Sacred Retreats... Stupa

"Go to where divinity is to quicken the divinity within yourself” Jean Shinoda Bolen
Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park, Sedona, AZ

Sedona Sacred Retreats

"Journeying is the best condition for loving.” Karl Kereyni


“Having a personal spiritual retreat tailored to specific issues was amazing. Every experience was meaningful because each day fit together with the next. I feel very appreciative of experiencing the sunset songs, and drumming to the four corners. The releasing of obstacles into the flowing water on the first day established a grounding into the “place” that is Sedona.  Being at the peace park with the stupa and the White Tara, walking the medicine wheel, connecting with all the prayers and heartfelt intentions was deeply moving. The intellectual “male energy” of Dennis’ reading and tarot update has allowed me to better understand the archetypes of my life’s journey. Laura’s alchemical dream analysis and healing with sound are truly unique and indescribable experiences. Going upcountry to the birthing cave location, experiencing that ritual with all the magical connections from the sand tray and the visualization, and then seeing the sacred Kachina woman formation was very special.  A personal spiritual retreat with Dennis and Laura Harness will allow you to safely journey in the magic that is Sedona, discover new meaning and purpose, and arrive home refreshed and inspired!” Carol, Berkeley, CA

“Dennis, in your Vedic Astrology session you strongly encouraged my daughter to follow her passion of photography and get the business of selling her work going.  Laura, you encouraged me to step out and begin my work that I was sent here to do. You helped me clear out a lot of things I needed to heal in order to proceed further.  Well, we took your advice to heart and are happy to report we have a website up and running!  We thought you would be interested in knowing how much you have influenced our lives. We really appreciate both of you and thank-you for taking the time to help us move on with our lives.” Debra and Sarah, Chesapeake, VA

“Ahhhh the Sedona Afterglow. Coming to Sedona last week was a life changing experience for me. I have a smile from ear to ear + I am "Just Happy"... It's such an amazing relaxing feeling + I can honestly say that "I get it". You are such a kind, caring, loving, non judgmental person who made me feel so safe + comfortable. You are so easy to talk to and I'd love nothing more than to keep in touch with you from time to time. See you next year!!!”  Michelle, Lawrenceville, NJ

“Laura - Thank you so much for your time and talents.  I think our session together was one of the most healing sessions I’ve had in terms of my mother/daughter experiences.  You are a very talented therapist. I really enjoyed working with you.” Anne, Sahuartito, AZ
“I wanted to thank you again for sharing your gifts, as you guided me through a profound journey.”  Penny, Oregon
