Arizona Retreat Centers

The Healing Center of Arizona
25 Wilson Canyon Road
Sedona, AZ 86336
(877) 723-2811

The Healing Center is a unique experience, unlike a hotel – it is more like being at home – a round home.  The bathrooms are separate and large – they have gardens in them. There are many areas for quiet privacy and meditation, but the large common dome allows you to meet new friends, perhaps share a meal together, or just sit out on the deck and watch a beautiful Arizona sunset on the red rock mountains of Sedona. The Center’s accommodations area includes wooden decks, spacious bathrooms with gardens, dome roofs and sleep-over space for individual travelers and groups. All interior areas are tastefully decorated with outstanding spiritual art from all over the world.
