Replenish with Retrograde Reset

Return to Blog Page

Sound Healing

Even if you aren’t a fan of horoscopes and astrology, you’re likely familiar with Mercury retrograde – thought to affect communication and technology, it’s a time that can leave you feeling frazzled, frustrated, or confused. This occurrence happens around 3 times a year when the planet Mercury seemingly moves backward through the earth’s sky. This is where we picked up the term “retrograde.” 

Upcoming Mercury Retrograde events:

  • April 1 to April 25, 2024
  • August 5 -28, 2024
  • November 25 – December 15, 2024

Thankfully this celestial movement isn’t all bad. Mercury in retrograde is the perfect time to slow down, unwind, reset, and even reconnect with your past. It’s an opportunity to grab your Agate crystal to help you calm, or Kyanite to clear up miscommunications, and escape to a renewing retreat.

L’Auberge de Sedona offers guests the ultimate getaway during this tumultuous time in the universe. Experience Retrograde Reset at L’Auberge with activations designed to help you find a sense of peace, calm and mental clarity that only Sedona can provide. Let the L’Auberge curated wellness offerings help to reset the mind during this hectic time.


Connecting Accommodations

During this astrological time, being grounded and connecting with the earth is important to keep balanced. But did you know Mercury affects you differently during different times of the year? From September 9th to 22nd when the earth zodiac sign Virgo is ruling, explore a Creekside Cottage to be close to the babbling creek and green lush earth. From September 23rd to October 1st while the air zodiac sign Libra is ruling, feel close to the sky in a Vista Cottage with unobstructed views of the red rocks and a breeze cooling your private balcony.

L’Auberge de Sedona’s private guests’ experiences are there to help you rewind during this tough time, here are some of our suggestions:

Sound Healing Experience: Using the energy of sound to promote wellness in the human system, continuing with a few simple interactive practices of toning and mantra, allowing new discoveries of yourself to surface.

7 Bowls for 7 Chakras: Experience a complete realignment of your 7 major energy centers through this blend of aromatherapy, crystal intention, guided visualization, and sound vibration. This creates a beautiful and unique healing journey that assists with aligning your true and authentic selves.


Turquoise and Sage Hydration Treatment

It is said that taking care of the skin and relaxing the senses helps against retrograde, and this seasonal L’Apothecary treatment will help hydrate, leaving you feeling renewed. Turquoise is also said to help people speak the truth during retrogrades and can help you summon the courage to express yourself without fear. During this treatment, you will first embark on a 90-minute nature-inspired treatment designed to ground and restore energy with the earth’s healing treasures of wild sage, chamomile, lavender, and rosemary. Then finally emerge from a deep rest feeling restored, pampered, and hydrated to enjoy a glass of Rose Kombucha, an Arizona-inspired truffle, along with a lovely, handmade turquoise bracelet infused with sage as a gift.


Vortex Hikes

Sedona is an epicenter of sacred vortexes, and L’Auberge offers a central location from which to access those magical spots. Leaning into Sedona’s ability to offer visitors peace, calm and mental clarity, it’s a good idea to get grounded outside and partake in vortex hikes to find calm, along with helping you to embark on a mental and spiritual reset. Some vortex hikes to help you find your peace include Airport Mesa, Bell Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Cathedral Rock. Here you can spend time in exploration and personal reflection. Private guides are also available to take you on a spiritual journey to the vortexes, whether it be for relaxation, energy, or emotional release.
