Annoucing the Gathering of 2013
 
Dates: Friday Oct 4 thru Sunday Oct 6, 2013 (some stay longer)

Where: Sedona, Arizona

Book your flights into Pheonix Sky Harbor Airport. Sedona is about an hour's drive from there, so count on either renting a car or taking one of the Limo Shuttle Vans available from and to the airport. i will furnish all the details by adding them to this post as we go along.

We stay at The Sky Ranch Lodge in Sedona http://www.skyranchlodge.com/
i suggest you book your reservations as soon as possible as there are many who love to visit in the fall.

We don't have an agenda. Generally dinner reservations are made at a
specific restuarant in Sedona on that Friday evening based on everyone's arrival times (try to time your arrival in Sedona no later than 6pm to give you time to check in before we all go to dinner). Brit, Lee and Bj usually join us for dinner. Other than that, spontaneity is the general rule.

Whether Shirley will be able to be with us for a few hours on any given day during the gathering is unknown. It usually depends on how her schedule shapes up. With Downton Abbey and her many other endeavors, she could very well be out of the country or in another state. One never knows. :)

Sedona is a wonderful place for spiritual renewal. The views are
breath-taking and each time we gather, there's always a bit of
wonder & synchronicity that Spirit throws into the mix and we
really do have lots of fun. Hope you can join us. If you wish to
attend, please private message me with your email addy so
that i can add you to the 2013 Gathering Email List. And as you
book your flights, let me know so we can get a feel for when
everyone will be arriving.
Here are some of the natural sights...

The attire is casual.
Jeans are fine. Yoga pants, capris, shorts. Comfortable
shoes for hiking. The weather tends to be warm and
summer-ish during the day, but it does get a bit cooler
at night and in the early mornings. So bring a light jacket
or sweater for the evenings. Zip-up and pull-over hoodies
work too. i love to watch the sun rise every morning and
that's what i wear; a hoodie. Dining attire is also pretty
much casual.
Love,
Chi

Ahhh, beautiful Sedona. At this point, I am unable to make any commitments, but who knows what October will bring. In any case, keep me in the loop as I love to hear who all will be attending and watching it grow weekly. I feel like I'm with you all just thinking about it.

Love,
Deb

Did you get your HAPPY socks, Shirley? i know
Bj got hers. Soft Grin...
Love,

Chi 03-29-2013 05:19 PM

Hello Kata and Robin,
Sorry for the delay. i've been out of town. Just got back
today. Have added both of you the gathering email list.
Looking forward to meeting you both.

The attire is pretty casual, Everyone.
Jeans are fine. Yoga pants, capris, shorts. Comfortable
shoes for hiking. The weather tends to be warm and
summer-ish during the day, but it does get a bit cooler
at night and in the early mornings. So bring a light jacket
or sweater for the evenings. Zip-up and pull-over hoodies
work too. i love to watch the sun rise every morning and
that's what i wear; a hoodie.
Love,
Chi

debabbott 03-30-2013 06:19 PM

I have just had a wonderful spring morning filled with the green of blooming trees and the beautiful colors of flowers bursting forth and it just cheered my heart today.

As well, that is how I feel when I read this thread of "The Gathering".

Love you all,
Deb

Lasep 03-31-2013 02:35 PM

I am really looking forward to the trip! Can't wait to see everyone. :)

Robin33 03-31-2013 09:21 PM

Chi

Thanks for the information. I will bring the hoodie and jacket. I can't wait, I am in need for relaxation. Plus I can't wait to meet everyone! I love sunrise and sunsets. Only thing I never see sunrise cause I'm always a night owl ;) but on trips I am an early bird. ;)

paulaj 04-14-2013 06:39 PM

Sounds super. I don't know if I can attend but will start working on it. YEA!

Brit 04-16-2013 08:24 PM

Glad to see so many that are planning to join in the fun!
