Ceremony or Special Circle for your Sedona visit:
Each program is customized based on your goals; such as, to celebrate, honor, bless, begin something new:
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.

Longer or larger group ceremonies can be arranged at a beautiful private site with ceremonial structures such as labyrinths and medicine wheels and creek access.
More complex Ceremonial options:
Circle of Power Shamanic Drum Healing Ceremony and teaching about core principles of ceremony.
For small groups this is done as a studio experience using sound healing instruments. Groups of 7 or more can be held at a private outdoor site with medicine wheels and labyrinths.
Ceremonial Training and Co-Creation of Ceremony Seminar at outdoor ceremonial sites, 4 or 6 hour program
We use drums, rattles and other wind instruments.
Harp accompaniment option (which is great under the stars or moon for a gentle, angelic feeling).
“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.”
Black Elk, Ogalala Sioux
