Sedona Retreats for Renewal

Major life events, shocks, traumas and ongoing stress can take a toll on your health and put you at greater risk for a major illness.

  • Have you been through a major shock or trauma in your life from which you have been unable to recover?
  • Do you need support navigating a significant transition?
  • Do you feel tired, fried or riled up after a sudden change or shocking life event that has caused to feel out of balance, stuck and unable to move forward?
  • Are you ready to be open to support to change and shift into being balanced, healthy and whole again?

It is important to take some time to heal and put your body and spirit at ease again.   A retreat in a new location can help remap the brain and give some perspective.  An opportunity to optimize your health can help you move forward and be present in your life.

"Think for a moment how, across the world, someone’s life has just changed — irrevocably, permanently, and not necessarily for the better — and everything that was once so steady, so reliable, must now find a new way of unfolding."

John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us

This Sedona Retreat for Renewal is about finding a new way for your life to unfold ….

This five day retreat is meant to get your body out of the sympathetic fight or flight and into parasympathetic state where your body and mind can properly function again.

Because in today’s hectic world, many of us don’t have time to get out of fight or flight, this retreat is designed to do that.  My hope is that you can have a jump start to reclaim a peaceful calmer state.

With a medical workup to assess your current health, acupuncture, daily yoga and/ or meditation and possible fine tuning of your medications and massage,  you can take great steps to recover yourself and live a fulfilling life again.

The retreat can be customized to suit your needs and individual preferences.

Through years of clinical experience, I have seen that shocks and traumas of life whether they be a one time PTSD experience or ongoing complex PTSD experiences take a toll on one’s psyche, health and ability to thrive.   Also, fear at times of major decision making can hold us back from the fulfilling life possible.

Tools you will take home after this five day retreat are learning to calm yourself and listen to your body and assessment of necessary treatment to balance your hormonal and nutritional state.

Retreat Staff

Dr. Laura Rubiales

Laura Rubiales, ND, LAc

Dr. Laura Rubiales has been a licensed practicing naturopathic physician and acupuncturist for over 20 years. She has noticed repeatedly that certain incidents, especially those related to loss and trauma, can change people’s physiology, predisposing them to illness, and as a solution created this retreat to transition people to a healthier more fulfilling life at times of stress, trauma and/or loss.

While pre-med in undergrad, Laura became frustrated with the limitations of conventional medicine.  This led her to study a more holistic approach to medicine. A graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr Rubiales has a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.

Cheryl Bailey, Yoga and Meditation Teacher

Searching for answers after facing several traumatic and life-altering events, Cheryl found a sense of purpose and meaning through the practice of yoga and meditation. Their teachings served as an anchor and healing modality, creating a deep and radical shift spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. This shift in perspective inspired her to create a space for sharing what she learned with others.

In 2018, she combined her love of academics with personal and spiritual growth and launched her venture as a Soulpreneur and founded Grit and Grace Meditation, LLC.  Her journey to living her best life is ongoing. Over the years her interests have expanded her practices to include Sound Healing, Reiki, and working with Crystals. One of her deepest passions is working with sound as vibrational medicine, knowing that sound promotes deep relaxation and has the power to create, move and shift energy. She practices what she preaches, as she believes her line of work is more than a source of income -- it’s her soul's purpose!

Cheryl’s dream of taking what was once a part-time side-hustle, is now a reality as she works full-time as a holistic practitioner in Sedona, Arizona.  To connect with her you can visit her website at

I met Dr. Rubiales through her recovering from narcissistic abuse program and continued on to receive acupuncture sessions with her. I felt that Dr. Rubiales was so compassionate and understanding when I was in one of the worst times of my life, and she made me feel like she really cared about my well being beyond our appointments.

In times of turmoil, I would highly recommend Dr. Rubiales and her program to help you with the support and help you need to recover.
