Details of ACIM Retreat in Sedona
We live as an adult family in a lovely, clean, 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with a meditation garden.
We share the kitchen, living room, dining room, and also we all pitch in on ordinary household tasks.
You can have a Course class every day, if you want.
Your program is up to you. You will find your balance of quiet study, outdoor recreation, social “family” time and more.
You will be shopping and making your own meals, using our kitchen stuff, and you will share a refrigerator in the attached garage with one other person. The kitchen has plenty of counter space for several people to work at the same time.
Learning is accelerated.
Opportunities for practicing the Course’s lessons in forgiveness and experiencing its gifts arise in the interpersonal settings around living together. The home, thus becomes the classroom.
If you would like to sit down at the table together, just make that request.
Mealtimes are good times for sharing.
How Much Does the Retreat Cost?
Our rates are $900 or $1000 per month depending on your room choice.
These are low-to-normal rental rates for Sedona (compare and you’ll see).
There is no extra charge for classes and all the other perks!
What Kind of Vacation is This?
The beauty of Sedona’s landscape is inspiring.
Jan would be happy to show you around the town, and especially its miles of natural beauty, and to accompany you on hikes, if you so desire. You can experience quiet, solitude, and inspiration even on short, easy hikes. Or you can walk or bike for mile upon gorgeous mile.
You’ll find that Sedona is jam-packed with people on spiritual journeys, art galleries, and friends you haven’t met yet. In other words, life outside the home can be very rich, too.
So yes! If your soul yearns for a vacation
and you just know that an environment steeped in the Course would be regenerating and reinvigorating,
talk to Jan about booking a month.
The Little Garden ACIM Retreat in
Dear Jan and Timothy,
Thank you for the loving flow that helped me carry through. Thank you Jan for holding such a healing space and a cleansing through forgiveness. Thank you for your acceptance and holding a healing space. This is just what I needed.
“Dear Jan and Timothy,
It didn’t take long for you to become my new family and for your beautiful house and garden- my new home. Staying with you provided a perfect balance of solitude and community. I enjoyed spending time in silence in my room or on a hike as much as I loved sharing meals with you, playing games, or having ACIM-based check-ins to start the day with joy and clarity. The house is located in a beautiful neighborhood, very close to many hiking trails and even to the courts where I could play the pickleball.
The more I learned about Jan and Timothy and their path, the more I admired their knowledge of and dedication to A Course in Miracles and for all the inner work that they have been doing with others or by themselves.
I found the Little Garden through an amazing synchronicity. I have been thinking for a while that I would love to visit Sedona, and one day I mentioned it to Myron Jones, my mentor through the Pathways of Light. She told me about her wonderful experience staying with Jan and Timothy, and for me that sounded like a perfect combination of Sedona and ACIM. I immediately contacted Jan, and there was an opening exactly for the month and the room that I wanted.
Thank you for your hospitality and hope to visit you again in the nearest future!
“I have felt held and cared for during my stay. Your thoughtfulness and loving kindness have been a true blessing. My heartfelt gratitude for welcoming me into your lives, your lovely home, and offering a nurturing place for my Being. I look forward to future visits and our continued connection.”
“I came to the Little Garden to find clarity and balance — spiritually, mentally and physically. That journey was guided by Jan and Timothy’s loving support. Their excellent knowledge and impeccable teaching is digestible and expansive. They also embrace and practice Course principles/practices in their home, simply living the Course.
“Sedona itself is also a sanctuary. Timothy and Jan have the grace of being extraordinarily spiritual folks that are long time residents of this beautiful place. It was a privilege living in their home.
“I have become inspired and renewed in so many ways. The words Thank You don’t begin to express my boundless gratitude to both of them.”
“This was the best vacation I ever had!” …”I miss The Little Garden. Jan and Tim were such good hosts. They are warm and welcoming. And my suite was lovely. Actually, everything about this experience was wonderful. And most of all, I absolutely love having A Course In Miracles group every day. Between that and just talking about the Course through the days I was there was an immersive experience that I will miss very much.”
Rev. Myron Jones
“I spent a month studying with Jan and Tim in their beautiful home and can’t say enough about how much I loved the experience. The natural beauty of Sedona, immersion in the Course, a room well-appointed with a private bath and outdoor sitting area, the sound of Tim’s fountain, Jan’s incredible garden, what else can I say? There is no other place like it. I plan on returning every year.”
“There is privacy, there is community, and there is always a warm welcome. I spent a month here, and I can say that Jan and Tim are five star hosts. They support your journey inward and your journey out along the Glorious Pathways and trails beyond The Little Garden. You will find everything you need in your own room, and yet there’s shared space that can accommodate your work, meditation, social and exercise needs. Don’t hesitate to ask Jan for advice about hikes around Sedona. I call The Little Garden ‘the love house’ and plan to be back soon! ”
“I lived in Jan and Timothy’s lovely and loving home for 10 months. Being experienced and dedicated Course teachers, they provide in-depth study and ongoing practice of A Course In Miracles. Living together in shared intent, the practice is kept in focus, learning is intensified and deepened! Thank you, Jan and Timothy!”
“Spirit, through a series of coincidences, led me to two extraordinary Teachers of the Course. … Jan and Timothy are gentle teachers. Their …honesty during morning check-ins keeps things real. The wholehearted love encouraged me to go deeper within myself. The daily experience of living the Course ushered me into a deeper peace within my mind, and a truer understanding of the Course as a way of life. I am grateful for all the people that have been called to teach the Course at this deep level.”
Dear Jan and Timothy, thank you for a month that has changed me and my life! Your love, peace and forgiveness was a gift present at all times.
Love, Connie C.
Thank you so much for opening up your home to me and making me feel like family! I have grown so much spiritually this month as a result of the check-ins, the classes, and the spiritual environment you provided. The Christ in me sees the Christ in you!
Love, Valarie H.
I had so many thoughts/emotions as I prepared to stay at The Little Garden. While I was excited about the retreat experience and all that I would learn, there were some anxious moments when I asked myself, What were you thinking?? I admit it was quite a bit out of my comfort zone. I am pleased to say that Jan and Timothy quickly welcomed me into their home, their lives and their love. When I felt insecure in my knowledge of the Course, they reminded me not to beat myself up, they reminded me what the Course teaches about who I Really Am. I went to the retreat with the intention of making some decisions about my career. I came away from the retreat with a new level of understanding about the decisions I make All day, Every day.I am thankful to Jan and Timothy for their willingness to share ACIM, and of course, I am especially thankful they helped me step out of my comfort zone.
