"On our 'Spirit Walk', I really needed to hear from God - Spirit about a situation in my life. The Peace I felt was the healing I needed. And the message from Spirit that you helped in me receiving was a soothing calm for my heart. Thank you so much." --Sue A., Ohio

"The highlight of our trip! We really enjoyed our nature walk. We felt truly like guests not just customers. Thank you so much!

Thank you again so much." -- Lori S. NY

"I've hiked for years but this was a new experience. You gently got us to see, hear and feel more of what's going on around us in Nature. I really appreciate this 'new window' into the natural world - and myself really. Thank you. I highly recommend a 'Nature Walk' for anyone going to Sedona that wants to experience something out of the ordinary." --Tom P., Portland OR

Enjoyable Relaxing Walks & Hiking focusing on Enjoying Nature & Opening our Spirits:

Walks and Hikes are customized to the participants - from slow easy gentle walks enjoying nature & the magnificent vistas, or a bit more rigorous hike, to 'mini vision quests' & opening to the spirits of nature.. These walks focus on enjoying the beauty of Nature here in the Sedona area. We will go at a comfortable pace, stopping frequently to enjoy what Nature presents to us. We may run into some quail, some flowering cactus, ancient twisted pine trees, a deer's sleeping place from the night before, maybe an old homestead and perhaps some ancient out of the way Indian ruins.

Nature Spirits Personal Message for You-- This is a private or couple experience where Tobias will listen to the Nature Spirits and they will direct us to a place for you to receive a personal message about your Souls Journey. 2-4 hrs.

Private visit to Anazazi Ruins- We will bring you to seldom visited ruins of the Anazazi's. The guardian spirits of these ruins are particular about who they like to visit these timeless spirit places. If you feel drawn to this we will customize a private visit for you. Most likely there is a message for you from these ancient guardians. 4-6hrs.

Through over 17 years of exploring this area we know many hidden places to go on our explorations.

Some of the well known places we may visit on our walks include:

Airport Mesa -- beautiful 360 degree views of the Sedona area. This is a popular place because of ease of access. We will take you to a private place to experience this extraordinary place.

Views from top & Ancient Pine and rare snow at Airport Mesa

Here's a few samples of walks available:

Coffe Pot Rock Evening Sunset Walk -- this is a famous landmark in west Sedona. While in town you may hear of the restaurant by that name. We will walk across large red rock flat areas, gentle incline on well traveled paths, and up to an amazing vantage point of the valleys below to watch the sunset play on the red rocks.

Path at Cathedral Rock & Sedona Pine

Cathedral Rock -- this is also one of the famous landmarks here in Sedona. We will have a gentle walk through a (usually) dry stream bed and up over large areas of flat red rock as we approach the 'Cathedral'. We will find some serene spots that will allow us the quiet and reflection that this spot offers.

Slide Rock Evening Walk -- Slide Rock is one of the most famous spots in Sedona. Oak Creek has carved amazing natural formations into the solid red rock itself. We will go for an evening walk in this ancient carved stone garden after the crowds have left. There's a stillness at sunset that gives a whole different experience of calm, of peace, of timelessness in this canyon.

The Stream is the Master Artist of Red Rock carvings! & Sedona Sunset

Native American Ruins -- There are several accessible Native American Ruins in the area. Some are maintained by the Park Service and some are hidden away.

Oak Creek: There are many walking trails up in Oak Creek Canyon, this is not so much 'Red Rock Vistas' but foliage & hiking by the creek.

Customized Spirit Adventure Tours



Hopi Adventure

The space on the Hopi Mesas is still very mysterious and reality can be very fluid. These are custom designed adventure trips for those that feel drawn to it. It could be just for you, or you and a friend or a very small group. We would have no specific agenda except to visit and see what happens and let Spirit guide us. Some people experience magical openings into other times and dimensions and trickster 'Heyoka' spirits cleverly guiding them. If you feel drawn to the Hopi Lands Tobias will customize and allow Spirit to guide us on a personalized, private mystical vision quest. 2 day adventure.  Click Here for article 'How the Hopi create their World.'

1 person $495, 2 - 4 people $365 per person. Includes transportation & double occupancy lodging at The Hopi Cultural Center

"Appreciating Nature"

A Message from Mother Earth

Walking on Water

"Walking on Water"


After a day by Oak Creek in Sedona, sitting in a chair with my feet in the water, hopping on the rocks, sharing blackberries with a skunk and swimming --I received a message from what felt like Mother Earth herselfan easy way to heal ourselves and the planet.

The word 'appreciate' according to Webster's new universal unabridged dictionary means:

1. to value, to esteem...
2. to recognize gratefully...

3. to increase the price...
4. to be fully or sensitively aware...

Shamans use a technique called 'gazing' to expand themselves and connect with deeper aspects of the world around them. This happens naturally whenever we slow down and enter the "Be still and know that I am God" space. Most of us naturally do this as kids, often while playing in nature, when we get absorbed in something that fully captures our attention and we become one with it, merge with it. Patanjali, the 11th century mystic-saint in his sutra teachings called this 'making samyana' on an object or idea. It meant to become one - merged with the object or idea and yogic powers would then open up with this perfect attention - merging.

As I sat and allowed my attention to expand while at the same time becoming more focused and relaxed, I saw-felt how when we love - 'appreciate' - feel gratitude for Nature, we actually lift nature up in vibratory rate. Our love-gratitude-appreciation energy actually infuses the plants, the rocks, the water, the very air around us. We feed them with our Love (God's Love). We are the God seeds, we are the 'made in God's image' creatures-creators that can be the vehicles for Divine Energy.

"The seed of God is in us...Pear seeds grow into pear trees,
hazel seeds into hazel trees,
and God seeds into God."

--Meister Eckhardt (12th century Christian mystic)

The plants, rocks, water around us get 'excited' by ourlove. The same way an electron gets excited by heat energy and speeds up. Love is the highest energy form in the created universe, it excites everything. The plants, rocks, water, the air - subtle ether feed off of our Love. They want to play with us, they want to share, dacne, exchange energy with us. When we give them our attention they notice, when we give them our love they dance.

And then they automatically want to give back to us in the form(s) of beauty they create.

Nature is the most chaotic, rambunctious, dis-organized system there is. Look at the fallen logs, the leaves, the 'dirt', the plants trying to grow through rocks, the rains washing 'away' the earth etc. Yet there is a perfect Order running through-out all of it. No matter how hard we try to imitate her, build aquariums with millions of gallons of water, try to recreate 'natural' zoos, try to 'landscape' our yards --we never even get close to the beauty of what Mother Nature does easily, naturally. We instinctively are awed by Nature's grandeur and beauty. We feel the majesty of the creative force just behind the vista of Nature. A friend of mine once told me that when taking an Alaskan cruise, just sitting on his balcony watching the mountains, the water, the sky...he 'broke open' and started to sob...just from the overwhelming beauty of the pristine, wild, free nature he was seeing.

This is the power, the gift, the efforless love that Nature can share with us.If we let Her.
Sitting there by the creek Mother Earth said to me:

"There is no 'work' involved with 'appreciating' Me. Just come out into my spaces and Love me, enjoy me, drink me, breathe me, sense me. It will fill you back up. And you will 'save' Me as well. Your Love for the trees, the streams, the rocks, the animals will feed them and keep them safe. Your appreciation of me will 'appreciate' me, will lift me up in vibratory rate, will strengthen me and I will be able to give you more of my beauty and love in return."

"One feels as if one is dissolved, merged into Nature."
Albert Einstein
