Ceremony or Special Circle for your Sedona visit:
based on cross-cultural time-honored ways of working with heart-centered ceremony, inspiration from wise medicine people of many traditions and more than three decades of experience leading ceremonies.
Ceremony is the conscious use of symbols by humans combined with action. In this physical enactment, the symbol comes to life, movement is activated or acknowledged. The intangible becomes real, something we are part of. A joyful sense of shared community emerges.
These personalized ceremonies are led by Sandra Cosentino, who has a life long relationship with wild nature and over 30 years experience with group ceremonial circles. Sandra works with spirit to hold the space and call in helper spirits on your behalf. Each participant is invited to bring the power of their focus, heart and intention to the ceremony.
Sandra uses her guidance, intuition and experience to bring these universal ways into a living, contemporary form for all people and are not copied from any of today’s Native American tribal ceremonies. We are co-creating a new way open to all people that is growing out each of our deepening relationship with the circle of life and evolving consciousness of life on Mother Earth.
These ceremonies can be added on to a vortex, mystical nature journey or done alone.
They can take place on the land at dawn, day, dusk or by stars or by fireside.

For more insights, please see article by Sandra Cosentino:
“Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood. And so it is in everything where power moves.”
