A weekend of private ceremony & connection at the home of Michael Smith in Flagstaff & Sedona, Arizona

I am so eager to welcome you home to the sacred lands of Sedona and Flagstaff Arizona for an amazing weekend of ceremony and spiritual connection! (Pictured above is the view from my home....where you will be anchored into the tranquility of a zero point energy vortex).

If you are committed to deepening your relationship with Spirit, and ready to be initiated into spiritual ceremony, including an authentic traditional vision quest experience, then read on......

Many of you know that I have devoted my life to serving Spirit - and that has included rigorous shamanic experience and ceremonial preparation over the last 20+ years to practice the medicine ways of our ancestors.  And now the time has come to share that wisdom with you in a 1:1 ceremonial experience which will prepare you for a life of deeper meaning, connection, Service to Spirit, and Joy.

On May 2-5, 2024, I am welcoming two (2) community members into my home, on three acres of sacred and tranquil land near a zero-point energy vortex in Flagstaff for a weekend of magic, community, and connection.   In addition to the magic that comes from deep personal connection and conversation, you will experience four days of deep union and communion with the Spirit realm.  The intention of the weekend is to engage you in practices and activities that will amplify your intuition and your ability to deeply TRUST it.

After you submit your application in which you share with me your intentions, we will work together, prior to your arrival, to prepare you both energetically and logistically.   This will include a private zoom session at some point prior - in which you will be initiated into the energy of your weekend vision quest.  There will be a list of practices that I, and Spirit, will ask you to engage in prior to your arrival, so that the Spirit realm can 'reach' you more easily once you arrive on the land.

There will be one other person which will be sharing in this weekend experience, and the three of us work as a team.   The effect of one additional person participating in the weekend ceremony will enhance and amplify your ability to connect to Spirit.     Good things come in threes, especially in ceremony!

On the day after your arrival at my home in Flagstaff, we will explore the beautiful, sacred, and ancient energy vortexes of Sedona, Arizona for a full day of spiritual ceremony.  The land of Sedona has an amplifying effect on your ability to receive strong and clear messages from your intuition, and from Spirit.  Then, on day 3, we will spend the whole day in a vision quest experience on the land at my home that will be the capstone experience of your time here, and perhaps even one of the capstone experiences of your life.

During vision quest experiences, the energy, time, and money that you spend in preparation comes back to you tenfold.   You can expect to have experiences of deep synchronicity, waking visions, enhanced psychic perception, and very likely outright Spirit contact from loved ones, guides, and ancestors.   That's the intention, and of course, how the experience actually unfolds is dependent upon what you NEED, not what you want.  We humble ourselves deeply to the Spirit world during experiences like this, and that humility is a transcendent experience in and of itself.  

After the weekend, you will come away relaxed, refreshed, and more connected to the Source of your existence, with less worry and monkey-mind.  Because of your preparation and your commitment, you will experience unconditional love and acceptance for yourself.  A warm blanket of comfort and love is what we will co-create together, and I look forward to receiving your application, and potentially welcoming you into my home so that you can FEEL at home in your human body and existence.

 With love, devotion, prayer and gratitude for you,



"Tears became laughter, releasing became freedom, blurred Channels became clear.
This experience helped each of us to become more "Whole".  Michael is the embodiment of a Lightworker, a human angel, and listened deeply with all 6 senses whilst simultaneously channeling from the Divine. There was no doubt that you can comfortably share "anything" about yourself and have him hold space for you with unconditional love and acceptance. His mission is clear and abundant; to help heal the world, one person, one group at a time.  I would do it again in a heartbeat."  - Judy Johnson, speaking on the 2023 Sedona retreat.

"Michael, as I am sitting here this morning ready to depart, I have so much gratitude and emotion overcoming me, I need to let you know how much I am thankful. Giving us a safe space to be ourselves, to learn, to heal and transform is what makes what you accomplished and what we all accomplished this weekend so magical. I never had such a truly spiritual experience."
- Janine
"Tears became laughter, weakness became strength, releasing became freedom, blurred Channels became clear, strangers became lifelong friends. I would do it again in a heartbeat. This experience helped each of us to become more "Whole" as many of us were fragmented from the every day vicissitudes of life.  Michael is the embodiment of a Lightworker and an "Angel" in a human body! He is so obviously tuned in to the Divine at all times. He listened deeply with all 6 senses to each group member whilst simultaneously channeling from the Divine. That was a wonder to behold for me and I believe for all of us! There was no doubt that you can comfortably share "anything" about yourself and have him hold space for you with unconditional love and acceptance." - JUDY JOHNSON
"This retreat was a Godsent and a breath of fresh air. I am so thankful for my ability to listen to my higher self and obey what my soul needed. I walked into this retreat confused seeking answers and walked out reborn and excited OWNING all the parts of me to attract love, peace, abundance, and live a life of flow and happiness. Take the leap you will not regret it!"  
- Warren Augustin, Texas
"The Sedona Retreat was transformative and unlike anything I have ever experienced before. It was a culmination of true human interaction, time and space with my higher self and with that of others. Exposure to traditional practices that I would've never had the opportunity to witness or participate in; they were full circle moments where I felt connected to ancestors and generations before me. A peace with what was, a removal of expectation and fear for what may be, and an openness and space to just be right now. We each walked through fears, sat in the space of grief, danced, cried in pain and in joy. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat."  
- Thomas G.
"Michael has created a safe space for sensitive people to gather and learn to work with their gifts in a non-overwhelming, hands-on way that is unique in my experience. Learning to be vulnerable and to connect with other people in that vulnerability is a powerful thing and difficult when one is so sensitive to energy from others. In my opinion, unravelling established patterns of distrust and overwhelm is the first, very important step to learning to work with the empath gifts and this retreat really went a long way to that end."
- Beth R.
"I am still in awe and gratitude for the incredible weekend and the energy your poured into us. Love and transformation was abound. It continues to ripple. You have taught and reminded me to take pause. I am grateful for you and thank you for the blessings you bestowed on our entire group." 
- Jennifer

You will be using your inuition to locate your power place on the land, and then I will facilitate and shepard you into a deep sacred ceremony in which you commune with nature and with Spirit.
