November is a season where we can take some fully present moments from our seemingly busy days, and truly notice and appreciate the beauty of life—especially highly creative nature’s multi-colored, awe-inspiring autumn trees that seem to paint a heartfelt story within our surrounding.
In addition, this month reminds many of us of the gathering and interacting of loved ones, the savoring of delicious, home-cooked meals, and the celebrating of harvest time—to include the witnessing of our dream seeds, planted in the past, being harvested of its benefits.
And last but not least, we’re reminded this month of the importance of gratitude, deep appreciation, different forms and non-forms of uplifting abundance, and the generous giving of unconditional love in various ways.
This is not only for Thanksgiving Day, but for every day throughout the year, for even the seemingly small stuff of life that we may often take for granted.
For November, Sedona is offering opportunities to come out and join the fun, so check out the details!
Dia de los Muertos Celebration
Day of the Dread (Dias de los Muertos) is a millennia old holiday that started from the traditions of Mexico’s indigenous people. And this special day deserves to be remembered and celebrated in a very festive way.
Come join the fun at Tlaquepaque, that’s not to missed, for mural painting, music by celebrated, returning artists, extraordinary new comers, the all female Latin folk fusion band, traditional foods; and sensational entertainment by Arizona’s acclaimed Circus Farm jugglers, acrobats, aerial artists, and fire dancers.
