Sedona Kryon Convention ~ Lodging at The Southwest Inn


sedona kryon

The Southwest Inn at Sedona will once again be providing lodging to the attendees of the Sedona Kryon Conference.  The 2012 Kryon Conference promises to be one of the most dynamic conferences to date, and the guests will be able to enjoy the Red Rock "phantasmagoria" from the Southwest Inn, which is centrally located between the main conference hall and the wilderness canyons out Dry Creek Road.

Why have so many past attendees enjoyed the Southwest Inn?

  1. After hours of listening to instructional material, our Kryon guests have enjoyed the tranquility of hiking around Thunder Mountain.
  2. Or, taking a sunset walk out towards Buddha Beach, which is just down from the Cathedral Vortex.
  3. Taking snacks and a beverage to the Sedona Cultural Park to enjoy watching the sun go down in a quiet, peaceful setting.
  4. Just minutes away from the Inn, in the stunning red rocks, is the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park.  Stupas are a living presence of awakened compassion and radiate constant blessing throughout the world.
  5. Another opportunity for tranquility is the Sedona Public Library.  It's located 1.5 blocks from the Inn.

    Sedona Solar Eclipse from Southwest Inn at Sedona


    sedona solar eclipse A preview of May 20th's annual eclipse from Sky & Telescope

    When the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun in the right way, a solar eclipse happens. There are four different types of solar eclipses. The most recognizable is the total eclipse, where the moon completely blocks out the sun, leaving only the spectacular solar corona visible. A partial eclipse occurs when the sun is only somewhat obscured by the Moon, which can often be seen alongside total eclipses. The annular eclipse, which is what we'll see on May 20, happens when the Moon appears slightly smaller than the Sun. A hybrid eclipse is when the eclipse flips between a total eclipse and an annular eclipse.

    Throughout the late afternoon on Sunday, May 20, you'll be able to see the Moon pass in front of the Sun to various degrees, depending on where you live in the country.

    Those waching the eclipse from Sedona, Az. from the balcony at the Southwest Inn at Sedona will get an amazing view. Or, let us help arrange a Pink Jeep tour up to the Grand Canyon, for a life time experience!

    The last time a total or annular solar eclipse happened across the United States was in 1994, so get ready to watch this amazing event!

    Be sure you're watching the solar eclipse safely. If you look directly at it, you risk permanent eye damage. Check out some tips on how to view a solar eclipse, or grab a pair of specialized eclipse glasses.
