Five stars! And I was a bit skeptical. Having never been in the Sedona area, I was apprehensive as to what I should expect. I could not have been more thrilled! Before I boarded a plane for Phoenix, Polly had sent a full itinerary, complete with times, addresses, transportation information, and other specifics. I’m a very particular foodie … Actually, that’s not quite correct, a better way to say it is: I often get hungry if I don’t eat in a timely fashion. Not only was our eating schedule perfect for me, but the food selections were amazing too! Super healthy. I don’t personally have any dietary restrictions, but I met a lovely lady who happened to follow a gluten-free and vegan diet. She had no problem ordering at restaurants and we would comment during what seemed like every meal how delicious our food tasted. The highlight for me was definitely the sunrise hike. That’s how the retreat began. I think when you tackle a physical challenge with a group of people, you can’t help but connect and feel a bond. This experience really laid the groundwork for us all to get to know one another and feel at ease. Polly’s intuitive meditations never disappoint! It was really funny; after her first channeled message to us at a Native American medicine wheel in Sedona, we all commented afterward, “I feel like you were talking directly to me!” Yet we all had very different lives and were in very different parts of our journeys. Lastly, maybe I am stating the obvious here, but I really found it beneficial and easy to experience parts of Sedona and the surrounding areas under the guidance of a local. Local residents always know how to steer you away from tourist traps toward authentic and genuine pieces of local culture. I cannot call a retreat with Polly Wirum enough! I will definitely be attending more retreats with her. I’m a business owner and a busy mother of three; so, for me to carve out time for myself, especially a full weekend, I have to make sure it is time well spent. And that is how I can easily summarize my retreat: time well spent! Thank you Polly!
