ACIM Retreat in Sedona, Arizona

We invite students of the Course, new or experienced, to stay with us at The Little Garden

We invite two retreatants at a time, to live with us on a month-to-month basis, for the purpose of being surrounded by and immersed in an environment of A Course In Miracles.

Our Course study and conversation together is a very rich experience, and there is no extra charge for that.

You are invited to join the study groups that meet here in person twice  a week, and to add study sessions on a schedule that works for you.

You will also be welcomed by several other Course groups in the area.

Contact Jan for more information.

How Does It Work?

We live as an adult family in a lovely, clean, 4-bedroom, 3-bath house with gardens. 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.

Opportunities for practicing the Course's lessons in forgiveness and experiencing its gifts arise in the interpersonal settings around living together. Learning is accelerated. The home thus becomes the classroom.

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.
If you would like to sit down at the table together, just make that request. Mealtimes are good times for sharing. 

Our rates ($900 and $1000 per month) 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.

"Dear Jan and Timothy,

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."

Karin Lee

"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." 

Cathie Jones

"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."   

Connie Brannock

"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! "      

Amy Weintraub

"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!"

Poppy Paoli  

"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."
