Cathedral Rock

By Tony Subia

Cathedral Rock considered one of the most photographed icons in Sedona. Its distinct natural beauty has been a major enticement for tourists and is considered one of the most powerful vortex spots in the Sedona area. It sets two large spires that rise out of the earth like a mighty cathedral. There are plenty of hiking trails, vantage points and resting ledges from which to soak up the energy emanating from deep within its ground. Panoramic views from its highest hiking points are simply breathtaking.

Formed of both red sandstone and black lava, the steep spires reach tall toward the heavens while the vortex site itself, cone shaped and sitting lower than the highest points of this nature-made desert church, is a simple pile of lava rocks accessible by a tiny foot trail. Because of its multiple geological towers, Towering Cathedral Rock is considered an upflow vortex, and visitors who proclaim their deepest desires here expect emanating energy to carry them out into the world for realization and empowerment.

Some vortex experts claim that upflow vortexes like Cathedral Rock also help the individual meet with the divine and experience a transcendence most people only dream about. It is the perfect spot for seeking greater spiritual awareness, new perspectives on old problems and courage to act on your heart’s desires. Mike Koopsen, renown landscape photographer captures the essence of the sheer beauty of Cathedral Rock. Prints of his photographs are available as decor and constant reminders of your memorable experiences in Sedona, Arizona.
