We invited writer Nicole Kliest to have a quintessential L’Auberge de Sedona experience. Her itinerary included a hike among the vortexes, dinner at Cress on Oak Creek and a new experience at L’Apothecary Spa guided by our Paths of Possibilities. Nicole came to the property open-minded but not quite a believer in the healing properties that Sedona possesses. Read further for her perspective, in the piece, “I Went On a Metaphysical Themed Getaway To Sedona & Returned Anew,” about the metaphysical experiences that she came to embrace.


“…By the end of the trip, I did have one revelation. It was the realization that the pressure I felt to have a spiritual awakening was hindering the spiritual experience itself. The moment I let go of expectations, I felt free. Free to ugly cry in my cottage, free to savor the mushroom agnolotti with lamb from Cress On Oak Creek executive chef Shawn Applin, and free to be open to the possibility that just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean there isn’t something brewing beneath the surface.

It snowed the morning I left, leaving the entire landscape blanketed in thick white powder. At the risk of seeming overly on the nose, it felt like a metaphor. A fresh slate to bookend a surprisingly meaningful ‘path’ I had taken. When I arrived home and began sharing these details with my partner and friends, the experience and its takeaways remained sacred.

I didn’t master the metaphysical experience by any stretch of the imagination. But that’s sort of the point, it seems — if enlightenment was so comfortably achieved, the world (and the people in it) would be quite different. Instead, I got a series of brief glimpses at what self-exploration looks and feels like, and that’s enough for me to continue searching.”
