One of the United State’s best-known destinations for spiritual vacationing, rest and renewal is Sedona, Arizona. After the many challenges of the past few years, groups who are looking to provide immersive and fulfilling excursions for meetings and incentives trips may want to consider this mountain destination with majestic red rock scenery. 

L’Auberge de Sedona aims to make it easy and unique with new metaphysical programming that incorporates the resort’s serene and intimate grounds and amenities.

The programming pays homage to Sedona traditions while incorporating new innovations in metaphysical practices. From astrology to reiki, chakra and vortex knowledge, attendees and guests who have a deep understanding of the metaphysical landscape or are just curious to learn the basics will leave the property with a deeper understanding of self. 

Local Sedona expert Paula Lockwood is overseeing L’Auberge de Sedona’s lineup of locally inspired classes that includes Crystal Introduction and Meditation; Sound Healing; Welcome Reading and Astrology; Introduction to Vortexes – Energy Sedona; and Introduction to Reiki, Chakra & Energy Healing. In addition to classes, guests can enjoy L’Apothecary Spa set amidst the property’s idyllic forest accompanied by the calming sounds of Oak Creek. 

Meeting and event spaces range from an indoor ballroom and boardroom to outdoor lawns and terraces. Accommodations include 62 cottages, 21 lodge-style guest rooms and the five-bedroom Creekhouse.

There are all sorts of happenings for meeting and event planners to plug groups into in Snowmass Village this summer, taking some of the pressure off building a memorable and effective agenda. 


In the soon-to-be released Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings, I write about Mountain Activities 101. That’s not the official title of the article—it’s actually Mild to Wild—but it is a primer about the many amazing activities groups can enjoy in the mountains, from cave tours in Bend, Oregon, to a kayaking, hiking and hot springs excursion near Boulder City, Nevada. 


With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.

We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.
