ABOUT THE SEDONA CREATIVE LIFE CENTER
The location of our Past-life Regression Counselor Training has been carefully selected to maximize and enhance your experience and learning. Below is the philosophy of the world-famous Sedona Creative Life Center:
Dedicated to the spiritual part of every person, Sedona Creative Life Center (SCLC) is a non-religious, non-profit growth center. SCLC comprises a diverse spiritual community that comes together for the purpose of spiritual advancement, and for the celebration of everything that is positive, both on a personal level and on a global level. Foremost in its philosophy is the idea that every person is here to learn and to grow as much as possible. Creativity and fulfillment are believed to be closely connected with growth and change on a personal level.
It is strongly believed that spiritual learning and personal growth are instrumental in cultivating a way of living that is both fulfilling and creative, and can place a person squarely on the road to developing the spiritual qualities of wisdom, enlightenment and serenity.
ROOM SHARING & CARPOOLING
Students in the past have not only reduced costs but also made wonderful lifelong friends by sharing rooms! We will be compiling lists of those interested either in sharing a hotel room/condo and in carpooling or renting a car together. Names, telephone numbers and emails of students who wish to do this to cut costs will be distributed, and it will be up to each individual student to contact others on the list and make arrangements. Please note that while it is fairly likely, we cannot promise that individuals will find someone with whom to share a room or vehicle.
LODGING FOR PAST-LIFE REGRESSION COUNSELOR TRAINING
All students need to arrange for their own lodging. West Sedona or The Village of Oak Creek (VOC) are nearest to the center. Sedona fills up quickly, so make reservations asap. We recommend that you make sure your reservations are refundable in case other opportunities show up.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need transportation from your lodging to and from the Sedona Creative Life Center, even if your lodging is nearby. On your registration form, there is an option that can be checked for those interested in in either sharing a room or in carpooling both from Phoenix airport and within Sedona itself. This will help reduce costs substantially.
Links to a few of the many other Lodging Options. We suggest you get a room with a mini-fridge and microwave, which most motels in Sedona provide, to save on food costs:
Sky Ranch Lodge - Sedona, (This motel is within a couple of miles of the center and many students have stayed here. (The Sky Ranch Lodge is 3 miles from our West Sedona classroom.) Its draw is that it is high on a hill above Sedona, with excellent views from the front rooms, and away from the traffic noise of most of the other hotels. It is near the powerful airport vortex, with attractive & serene landscaping. Like any other hotel, there can be noise from adjacent rooms. The staff is usually not overly warm. The majority of rooms have kitchenettes; if this is important to you, check to make sure yours does. Note: Some students in the past thought their beds were too hard. If you want to pay extra, you can have a room with both this view and a fireplace.Desert Quail Inn, Hwy 179, Sedona (Former students have stayed here and thought it was a nice motel in affordability, furnishings and comfort. It is right on the main highway in the Village of Oak Creek, about 7 miles from class.)
White House Inn (This is a basic, no-frills motel with limited room cleaning, located right on the busy highway in West Sedona. Students report that while it is definitely "downscale," beds are comfortable and prices are low. Check online reviews.)
Arabella (formerly called King's Ransom Inn) (Reports are that it is an average motel that could use some updating. They serve a typical motel breakfast. Some rooms have jacuzzi tubs. Only a couple of miles from the Creative Life Center. Rates are higher if you want a room with a view.)
Sedona Summit (A timeshare resort in West SEdona five miles from the class location. Kitchens and jacuzzi tubs in some of the suites. Students have given good reviews to these condos--particularly nice if you have several people and want to share a condo, although there are singles as well.)
Sunset Chateau Bed & Breakfast (This is a peaceful B&B away from traffic with wonderful views and pretty grounds. Previous students have enjoyed staying here, although a couple said that they were subjected to unwanted "sermons" at breakfast about the owners' religious beliefs. It is pricey, but you can split the cost with one or two roommates.)

PRIVATE ROOMS IN HOMES:
Craigslist (Sometimes you can find an inexpensive room in someone's home for rent under "Room," "Vacations," or "Temporary." Students' experiences with this have varied greatly. If you opt for this, we suggest you make a refundable reservation only.)
AirBnB (Please see above for Craigslist. Do use caution. Some students have had fabulous experiences with such rooms; others' experiences have been unpleasant. Ask for referrals and the opportunity to email referrals, and use great wisdom.)
MEALS & SIGHTSEEING
All meals are "on your own." There are numerous restaurants in the area. Students on a budget might consider lodging that includes a kitchenette; small refrigerators and microwaves are standard in many area motels. There is a supermarket in the center of Sedona geared towards organic and healthy foods (Natural Foods), as well as a Whole Foods, a Safeway and a Bashas.
You will be completely--and happily!--absorbed in past-life regression training during the five days of class. Although the Art Cabin at the Creative Life Center is in a gorgeous location, with wonderful views, there will be only limited free time for exploring Sedona. Students are strongly encouraged to consider staying an extra day for R&R, hiking, or sight-seeing in this mystical place!
Students are encouraged to bring yoga mats, pillows, blankets, special chairs, neck holders (the kind you wear on airplanes) and anything else you want to be comfortable during our sessions. Most people like to lie down on the floor for regressions, and the floor in our center is not carpeted, so please be advised and pack accordingly. Maximize your comfort!
For your comfort, our classes are always 100% fragrance free. Everyone knows what it's like to be in a closed space all day with someone wearing a scent they dislike. Added to that, increasing numbers of people have allergies to fragrances, including natural oils; we usually have several individuals, sometimes with serious allergies, in our classes. For this reason, we will not be using products like sage, incense or scented candles, and all students are requested to avoid wearing perfumes, aftershave, body perfumes, essential oils and other scented products, and reserve their use for another time.
Please allow your body to adjust to the schedule, especially if you are coming from overseas, so that you may be fully present during our sacred time together. Most of Arizona, including Sedona, does not observe Daylight Savings Time. Keep in mind that during Daylight Savings Time, ending classes after 9:00 p.m. in Arizona is the equivalent of ending class after midnight for east-coast students.
Sedona is about 130 miles north of Phoenix, a 2-hour drive, or 35 miles southwest of Flagstaff. Space is provided on your registration form to connect with others if you are interested in sharing a rental car to and from the Phoenix airport, or carpooling to and from class.
Some guests drive their own car.
Many students find it most cost-effective to fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and rent a car. This option gives you the freedom to come and go as it suits you upon arrival, upon departure and during your stay. For most people this is the most convenient way to reach Sedona. Certification is only given for full attendance and cannot be given for anyone requiring an early departure. With this in mind, students flying to and from Phoenix should schedule their arrival the day before class begins, and plan their departure from Phoenix no earlier than four-and-a-half hours after the class ends, or (recommended) a day later if you plan on doing any sightseeing.
Those who do not want to drive can take the shuttle from the airport to Sedona. There are multiple options for doing this. Note that you will need to arrange transportation to the Creative Life Center from your lodging. The center is up a steep hill where walking is not safe. Once classmates get to know one another, carpooling is recommended.
Ace Express: They will take you directly to your hotel, and pick you up. To make a reservation, please call (928)-639-3357. NOTE: While it's a good company, with one of our past classes, Ace changed a number of students' reservation times at the last minute for their own convenience, forcing people to wake up much earlier in the morning than originally scheduled (naughty company, bad karma!). Because of this experience, it's recommended to get a contract in writing with specific pick-up times if you use Ace!
Sedona/Phoenix Airport Shuttle: This shuttle leaves Phoenix Airport for Sedona seven times per day, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. In the Sedona to Phoenix direction, the shuttle picks up passengers both in West Sedona and in the Village of Oak Creek, also seven times per day, from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Call 928-282-2066 for reservations. Visit www.sedona-phoenix-shuttle.com for a complete schedule. You will still need to take a taxi or arrange transportation to your lodging, and Sedona taxis are expensive.
