All about the Cathedral Rock vortex in Sedona, Arizona.
Cathedral Rock

Of Sedona's four energy vortexes, my second favorite is Cathedral Rock. And even then, it's not for the energy (which some describe as "harsh") but for the swimming opportunities at Red Rock Crossing, located at Cathedral Rock's base. But, regardless of why one might visit, one is sure to enjoy the experience!

The easiest access to this vortex, driving only on paved road, is to drive 4.3 miles west on 89A from the junction of Hwys 89A and 179, and turn left on Upper Red Rock Loop Rd. Then go 1.8 miles and turn left on Chavez Ranch Rd. Follow the pavement .8 mile and turn left into Crescent Moon Park (small fee to enter). Drive as far into the park as possible, then walk to the creek. As you walk east along the creek toward Cathedral Rock, you will feel the energy getting stronger. The strongest energy is where the creek is closest to Cathedral Rock. At this point, the spires of Cathedral Rock are hidden behind the cliffs on the other side of the creek. The energy at this vortex strengthens the feminine side.

This vortex can also be approached from the Village of Oak Creek by driving along Verde Valley School Road to the end, and then walking along the other side of Oak Creek. Also, if you enjoy hiking and climbing, there is a third route that will bring you close enough to this vortex to feel its energy: From Hwy 179, drive in Back-o-Beyond Road .6 mile to the parking area at the base of Cathedral Rock, and then hike up the creek bed toward the center of Cathedral Rock.

The Feminine Side can be viewed as being on a scale that has goodness at the high end, and the opposite, which is badness or evil, at the low end. In contrast to the masculine side, which strengthens the ability to stand up for your own rights, the feminine side strengthens the ability to allow others their rights and not interfere with those rights. The energy at this vortex strengthens the things you normally think of as feminine, such as kindness, compassion, patience, and the ability to let others need you and depend on you. And it strengthens the ability to anticipate the impact of your actions before you act, which is what considerateness is all about.

Because it is a favorite, my visits to Cathedral Rock Vortex have been relatively frequent. But here are some of my favorites.

All the photos from Keith's and my short visit to Sedona's Back-o-Beyond and (Cathedral Rock).

Our second stop on today's Sedona day trip was to the back side of Cathedral Rock. Because of the formation's symmetry, it is still recognizable from the back. But much less crowded!
