About This Event
Aromatherapy and Distillation: Harvest to Hand Series 12 CE’s
Continued Education Wellness Retreat Workshop
This course will take place indoor and outdoor at Sedona Wellness and at the Essence of the Earth distillery nearby
Hundreds of years ago, our ancestors would grow their medicine in their gardens. Doctors were not accessable to everyone and medicine as we know it today was nonexistent. Generations from all cultures, countries and climates had the knowledge to make use of plants and minerals in medicines and for relaxation. This knowledge gave them the power to heal themselves. This knowledge is mostly Lost to modern medicine overuse.
Essence of the Earth Aromatherapy class will take you from plant and soil to the oil in the bottle. The first day you will learn the benefits of organic farming, the importance of water and nutrition, description and usage of each plant variation and companion planting. Day 2 will be spent at the Essence of the Earth distillery located in Cottonwood where the discussion will continue with topics of harvest, distillation and essential oil usage. At the end of the class, you will go home with a bottle of essential oil that was distilled in class, and learn some surprising new options of essential oils to use in your sessions.

Essence of the Earth is local grass roots company devoted to bringing you only the highest quality organic essential oils–or essence– by cultivating our own organically grown crops and distilling them on farms both here in Sedona, Arizona and on the rich farmlands of Kenya.
By educating local farmers both here and our Kenyan farms, on the art of organic, sustainable farming, we not only support these farmers and their families, but also support the growth of their own local economy and communities.

This CEU retreat included yoga, meditation, healthy food, learning, multiple opportunities to practice new skills, info on how to incorporate this modality into my private practice, and lots of laughter and positive energy. I left with many new skills, and renewed energy levels. So glad to have come to this workshop. Thank you for teaching.

The Cleanse Program created by Lorrie Lawrence, that is administered by the Sedona Wellness team, literally brought me from the depths of despair after caretaking and the loss of a loved one to a freedom that my body and spirit had not known since my youth. I experienced Panchakarma (PK) treatments before but never in such an immersive retreat environment. For me, the key was being open to receive. The program began before I arrived with the opportunity to evaluate and share, via a very brief survey, where I was at physically, mentally and emotionally at the time. Lorrie takes a true wholistic approach. Each Cleanse Program is designed for the individual receiving it with a number of practitioners involved. I spent five days receiving treatments and nourishment for every part of my physical body as well as counseling sessions and journaling suggestions to begin to heal my grief. I originally found Lorrie when I was sick during a holiday visit and searched for an Ayurvedic Doctor. Lorrie has assembled a team that provides care in a wide range of modalities. I have continued to seek medical treatment both at Sedona Wellness and Pagosa Wellness several times a year ever since. Both locations are in serene vortex physical settings with water, red rocks and hot springs nearby which embody the essence of wholistic healing. Experiencing a Cleanse Program at Sedona or Pagosa Wellness is a bucket list item I wish everyone could have the blessing to receive.

One of the best healing experiences of my life was Panchakarma by Lorrie Lawrence at Sedona Wellness. I embarked on this journey at a time when I wanted to reset my health. That was precisely what was provided, a re-boot. I really appreciated the time that Lorrie took to discuss important knowledge about my health at that moment and moving forward into the future. This gave me a pathway to implement a healthier diet and lifestyle. There are different components that make up this healing and restorative process. My favorite of the 5 Panchakarma therapies were the Urdvartana, Swedana, and Shirodhara. The Urdvartana or lymphatic massage was off the charts! The Swedana or herbal steam bath was so lovely and relaxing. The Shirodhara, herbalized warm oil gently poured on the third eye, put me in one of the most profound meditative states of my life! The elimination of toxins from your body can be a challenging experience. However, this cleanse was different than any other I have tried. I found Sedona Wellness Panchakarma to be the most supportive, nurturing, and renewing cleanse I have ever experienced. I received a restoration of balance, mental clarity, and a big improvement in my health and wellness. I felt that my immune system become stronger, my energy levels went higher, and my relaxation became deeper. If you can make some time to invest in your health I can't say enough amazing things about Sedona Wellness. I am so very appreciative to have gone though the Panchakarma therapies with Lorrie and Sedona Wellness. Thank you, with deep gratitude. Heather Malloy Sedona, Arizona

My experience at Sedona Wellness exceeded my expectations. Lorrie knows the very best way to conduct a cleanse and I had complete confidence in all her treatments. They work! I would recommend her cleanse program to anyone who is serious about doing it on the highest level. The entire time I was at the retreat center I was thinking "Why is this not the most popular retreat center in Arizona?" It is on sacred land, private, surrounded by breath-taking views and hiking trails, cozy, beautiful, supplies great organic food and is staffed by the best practitioners anywhere in the world. GREAT place for any kind of retreat!

I've been doing deep tissue massage for the last 36 years. Lorrie Lawrence's skills and variety in this area far exceeds any I've ever experienced!

We met Lorrie years ago when searching for a massage therapist. We had just retired to Sedona and I had chronic back pain from 20 years of working in a hospital. I had been receiving massages for about the last 10 of those 20 years in an effort to help me deal with the pain. After my first massage with Lorrie , I knew that I had struck gold. She has an amazing reportoir of styles and techniques that, when coupled with her energy and passion for healing, has finally given me relief from years of pain. In addition to massage work, I have also had the opportunity to experience other modalities that Lorrie, an Ayurvedic practitioner, offers at her facilities. One of those offerings that I decided to do was a very thorough cleanse that required daily sessions for a week. She was very discrete, encouraging and sensitive to my needs. I felt completely comfortable throughout the process, and had a renewed sense of energy and health when finished. We have visited Lorrie at both of her facilities, Sedona Wellness and Pagosa Wellness. The facilities are clean and professionally run, yet warm and inviting at the same time. Lorrie is constantly challenging herself to learn new techniques for assisting her patients on their journey towards a healthier, more pain-free life. Lorrie is a teacher's teacher, a therapist's therapist, and I would have given her 10 stars had it been possible.
