I visited Mii Amo during December of 2015 for the Winter Solstice and it still has not left me. For those of you unfamiliar with this property, it is a destination spa resort built into the breathtaking Boynton Canyon. Before I arrived, friends warned me that I would likely encounter something mystical on this journey to Sedona. Looking back now I can say without hesitation that this trip irrevocably changed the course of my life.
I flew from New York to Tucson and then hopped in our 4×4 to drive out into the Red Rocks where we would find our bliss over the course of 4 days. At first I was a total skeptic. Sure the region was exquisitely beautiful, but I certainly didn’t feel anything particularly mystical…or so I thought. Slowly as my cellphone lost reception and I nestled into my wood burning abode, the magic of Mii Amo started to reveal itself to me.
On my first day of treatments I kickstarted my journey with a Soul Seeker session where I was asked to identify my masculine and feminine selves by sitting in two separate chairs. Through a guided meditation with my master therapist, I started to see how deeply imbalanced my life was in New York – just how much I lived in my masculine and neglected my feminine. This was just the beginning of my personal disarming and revelations.
I’m often asked what treatments I would recommend, and despite this trip occurring over 2 years ago, there are still very specific ones that standout to me to this day:
- Soul Seeker
- Prickly Pear Butter Wrap
- Milk and Honey Soak
- Intentional Aroma Therapy Massage
With each treatment it was like peeling back a new layer and discovering my truth. Stripping down to the bare minerals, there was nothing to hide behind. The canyon acts like a mirror, reflecting yourself back onto you. There is honestly so much more I could say about my experience here and I likely will in time. But for now I will leave you with the tools to explore more of this property on your own:
