"The Call of Sedona is not nearly so much about a place as it is about a place of Being; not only about a location on the map of the world, but a location on the map of the mind. Recognizing that this unique city in America holds both a Message and a Metaphor for those in search of greater meaning and purpose in life, Ilchi Lee has produced a book filled with remarkable wisdom inspired in a remarkable setting. Not to be missed."
- Neale Donald Walsch, Author of Conversations with God
“I have been to Sedona only once. I was so struck by the power and magic of this land—and I remember thinking, ‘This place is a cathedral in which to worship.’ Let The Call of Sedona bring this holy earth energy right into your heart.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
Read an Excerpt
Around mid-April, I climbed to the top of Bell Rock for the first time in a very long time. The warm afternoon sunlight shining down welcomed me as it always has. When I was almost at the top, I noticed the blue sky without a spot of cloud between the red rocks standing tall. My heart leapt as though it were the first time I'd ever seen that.
As the sun started down, it stained Courthouse Butte next to Bell Rock with gold. The branches of the pine trees swayed gently in the evening wind. That day, I meditated for a long time at the top of Bell Rock, thinking of the tourists to Sedona that number in the millions. ...
There are probably a vast variety of superficial reasons for why each person comes, but I think that there also exists a certain yearning, that makes them head toward Sedona like salmon returning to the river where they were born. People who come to Sedona aren't coming simply to look at the beautiful views. They want to experience something new: adventure or inspiration. I believe the yearning that seeks to bring something new to a life that's lost its luster is an inherently spiritual thing.
That day, after I came down from Bell Rock, I named the thing that the people who come to Sedona are looking for "the Sedona spirit.” And then, when I thought about it, I saw that the certain power that drew me to Sedona 15 years ago, the essence of all the things that I experienced in Sedona, was the "Sedona spirit,” too.
