Arizona Offroad Adventures - Bull Dog Canyon
This is an off-road trip through Bulldog Canyon. The trip starts with meeting at a large residential property a few miles from the off-road entrance. I live in the home and it has a large safe area to park in. We will begin the trip with meeting each other. Then there will be a small safety talk. Once everyone is comfortable and ready our adventure begins. We will start with a short drive on the road to the off-road access point. We will be entering Bulldog Canyon off of Ellsworth onto forest road 3554. This road is mostly sand. This area looks like a track from a bmx video game. We will cross the desert to the base of a mountain. Then we will drive through a large wash parallel to the mountain. There is a small opening that we can drive through. We will then turn onto forest road 10. This road is a mix of sand and small rocks. It is a very beautiful picturesque path. We will end the trip driving to the top of a mountain that over looks the city. After viewing the city there is approximately a 10 minute drive on paved roads back to the starting point and your car. This trip takes 2-3 hours depending on road conditions and passenger preferences. Bulldog Canyon is the area of Tonto National Forest north of Usery mountain and south of the salt river. There is a good chance of seeing desert animals like horses, coyotes, javelina, and snakes. Custom times available on request.
Heart Healing and Awakening
Damiyr is a highly intuitive and sensitive soul here to guide you to true healing and self awareness. Here in Sedona’s energy vortex, I will guide you through: Movement: to circulate your life force energy and connect you to your body. Meditation: to connect with higher self. The meditation I choose will be based on what’s best for the individual or group. I will use deep breathing, visualization and self love to bring you to a place of pure peace and compassion. From this place, all of the questions you have can be answered. From this place there is clarity. Intuitive Reading: The entire session will give me opportunity to read your energy. I will use this information to structure the experience based on what would be best for you and the group you’re with. Sometimes there is a message that wants to be shared. If so, I will share that message with each individual. Working with individuals, couples, small groups and families. With the help of Sedona’s energy vortex, you will leave this experience filled with heart energy, spiritual awakening and compassion for yourself and for all life around you. **A 20 minute uphill hike is necessary to get to the location. ***I work intuitively with each group based on what wants to be experienced for that specific group. Every session can be very different.***
Sunset Yoga at Hunt's Tomb- Unique Desert Views
Join me in one of my most favorite places in the valley to see the stunning Arizona sunsets! If you arrive with a curious heart and open mind, I’m confident you’ll leave feeling more connected to nature, to like-hearted individuals and to yourself with memories to last a lifetime! We will stretch and breath together while taking in the sights of Hole in the Rock, the Four Peaks, Maybe some big horn sheep and a unique sunset view. Our all - levels yoga session is 1 hour with some time in the beginning and end for connecting. For some bonus fun, I’ll take some fun yoga pose photos for you on your phone at the end if you’d like! I truly can’t wait to spend time with you and help you create a lasting memory of your stay here in beautiful Arizona!
Vortex Energy Healing
Here in Sedona’s Vortex Energy I will guide you through ancient movement techniques to open the body’s energy centers in order to activate your ability to receive and feel the vortex energy. Most people come to Sedona and never feel the vortex because they either have blockages or are desensitized. Using ancient movement techniques, breath work, and meditation we will open up meridian points and sensitize your ability to truly feel the vortex. Once this happens, I will guide you and help you to clear old stagnant energy. Most people carry stagnant energy and emotion from years ago. Connecting to Sedona’s energy vortex will allow you to experience deep healing by releasing whatever it is you carry that no longer serves you. You will leave feeling lighter, more connected and reenergized. **A 20 minute uphill hike is necessary to get to the location.
Petting farm with beautiful horses
Visitors to Harmony Acres Farm will enjoy hands-on petting interactions with a variety of friendly farm animals in a peaceful natural hight desert setting that abounds with wildlife and wonderful mountain views. The sounds of calming wind chimes mingle with the crowing and clucking of our free-ranging chickens. One-by-one guests will be introduced to the farm’s colorful and rare breed horses, sweet miniature horse, adorable dogs, friendly hairy goats, cute spotted pigs, handsome horned rams and woolly sheep. We often have new babies to cuddle and sometimes bottle feed. While learning about each of the rare breeds and rescued animals that calls Harmony Acres home, you can pet and feed treats to the animals, enjoy their playful antics and loving attention up close. Our elegant flock of chickens and turkeys will usually come running for a guest-fed treat. Each tour winds up with some time for a period of guest self-directed time with your favorite animal. You are guarenteed to make new animal friends. Petting tours are conducted socially distanced and all outdoors. We are handicapped accessible. Plenty of shade is available for you in our covered stable area and a shaded veranda at the house. Fun and fond furry memories await you! Other things to note, guests will be walking on unpaved and sandy paths and should not be wearing flip flops or open-toed shoes.
Befriend Seventy-Six Rescued Farm Animals
Close your eyes… Imagine standing under a mesquite tree with chickens & ducks at your feet, goats nudging you for more pets, a mini zebu cow licking your skin with his cat like tongue, llamas & an alpaca in close proximity, the whisping sound of tiki-hut-like feathers from emus, and the subtle oinks of mini pigs waiting for more treats. Now open your eyes. Did it feel surreal? Like you were in an animal lover’s heaven? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll experience at Fluffy Top Sanctuary. You’ll also meet Hen Stefani, the celebrity chicken with over 150,000 followers. Make sure to follow her on insta & tiktok! @hen_stefani *My schedule is flexible so feel free to request other dates and times. PLEASE NOTE: I am a firm believer that animals are here *with* us, not *for* us. What does that mean? Put bluntly: This is not a petting zoo. While many of the animals like pets & interaction, some only want to be observed. All money goes towards feed and vet care. Thanks so much! Can’t wait to meet you!

Desert Photo Shoot
Message for further details regarding pricing per session instead of person. $375/session/hr regardless of number of people -- commonly. The number of pictures vary but I average ~60pictures. I also offer mini sessions -- $200/30min session. Let's take pictures and talk about pricing! The shoot will run for 1 hour at the Sonoran McDowell Preserve. We will meet in the parking lot and walk out on the trails leading to the desert setting. I will suggest poses and positioning for photos that relate to what you are looking for. The location provides a desert and natural theme. I have lived in Arizona for a few years now and have hiked all around Arizona from Tucson, Phoenix, Sedona, Grand Canyon, and Northern Arizona and believe this location appropriately alludes the essence of Arizona. Edited pictures are expected to be completed by 3 weeks and will be sent through a link so that the client will have access to them at anytime. If there are any further questions feel free to message me! Other things to note My photo shoot stands out from others in that I like to shoot a couple hours before sunrise or sunset. This is because the sun provides a very natural golden hue to pics -- golden hour. But I am also available during other hours of the day obviously because I am aware that people may be busy.
Hike and interact with donkeys in sight of the Superstitions
Experience a unique and truly Arizona adventure of a lifetime. Meet and interact with our wild burros, mini donkeys and horses. Brush, lead, and feed our donkeys, hike in the shadows of the Superstition mountains with donkeys or horses. Spend time with and learn about the burros of the southwest, take donkeys and or horses for walks in the desert, take photos with animals and nature. If you dont see a date or time available that fits your liking, just ask, we are flexible.
