67 – Bell Rock Vortex – Sedona, AZ

Play

On this week’s episode, Brett and Harley take an existential trip to Sedona, AZ in search of enlightenment at the Bell Rock Vortex.

We are completely sold on this oddity, and Brett already has a bag packed.

We had a great interview with our “boots on the ground” expert, Sue-Ellen Barker. Sue-Ellen is a tour guide with Sedona Red Rock tours and she really knows her vortexes, vortices….she really knows her vortex stuff.

Sue-Ellen gives us the skinny on all of the metaphysical activities in the area as well as some activities for the normals(you know who you are).

In The News: A school that teaches the ways of the force, but they can’t say that. The Silver Sabres Combat Academy might “force” you to exercise.

We discuss Sedona, but let’s be honest, we couldn’t wrap up Sedona in a year of shows.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and our tour guide pointed us in the direction of the best pizza in the tri-state area.

Brett’s Top 5 has cowboys and Native Americans.
