    Included with Park Entrance Fees
    Einstein understood the Hopi view of time as a process, and because of that the Hopi People were able to understand the concept of time as a fourth dimension. Similarly, scientists were intrigued by the thought that the idea of spatio-temporal unity that had taken Einstein seven years to ponder, was readily available to the Hopi. Built twelve hundred years ago, Walpi Village is a living legacy of the sacred teachings of the Hopi Ancestors. “If you drilled from Hopiland through the center of the earth, you would exit in Tibet, another sacred culture situated on a high and dry plateau. Certain words in the Hopi and Tibetan language have reversed meanings – for instance, the Hopi word for day, “Nyma,” is the Tibetan word for night. The word for Moon in Tibetan, “Dawa,” is the Hopi word for “Sun”. (Daniel Pinchbeck). Seating is limited and reservations are required. Please call 928.282.6907 to reserve your seats.

The complete lineup of films to be screened at the 24th annual Sedona International Film Festival are now posted and include five Academy Award nominees and a diverse selection of full-length features, documentaries, shorts, animated and foreign films.

“There are so many great films in this year’s festival, I wish there were more hours in the day to see them,” said Keri Oskar, who chaired the feature films selection committee for the 2018 event, February 24th though March 4th.

Oskar recommends, among other feature films, Django, The Drawer Boy, Humor Me, Instrument of War, The Insult, My Name is Vaseline and Rose.

Connie Levinson, who chaired the documentary selection committee, said filmgoers this year will have a chance to “see even more documentaries than in the past because we have put together five sets of unusually short docs for screening during our double features.”

Among Levinson’s list of “must see” documentaries are Faces Places, Dateline: Saigon, Liyana, I Am Jane Doe, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (nominated for a 2018 Oscar for Best Documentary Film), American Veteran and Poisoning Paradise, a film by Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely and produced by Teri Tico about the impact of testing genetically engineered seeds and crops in Hawaii.

Kokopelli Concert in Sedona, AZ

Kokopelli Concert: Mazzella, Mockingbird & Sterling
February 17th, 2018

There are concerts and then there are CONCERTS! You will not want to miss the KOKOPELLI CONCERT taking place this Saturday, February 17th in Sedona, AZ! Musicians Anthony Mazzella, Kel Mockingbird and Peter Sterling will be teaming up for a concert of beautiful music at Mary Fisher Theater at 7:00 pm!

The Kokopelli Concert will consist of Native American flute, guitar and harp. The synergy between the three artists create a sonic landscape that is in tune with the spirit of Sedona. The legend of Kokopelli represents different things to different people and is a fun and interesting topic to research. In the context of this concert, Kokopelli represents the musical spirit of the southwest.

Mazzella, Mockingbird & Sterling 

Kel Mockingbird describes his music as “Buddha raised on fried bread. His music is quietly uplifting to create a centered feeling and his emotive soft woodwind notes and breathy trills evoke the images of the Southwest. In concert, he claims to float the listener above the sounds of birds in a morning meadow and says it’s almost possible to picture the round, woody flute tones resonating between an elk’s spreading rack.

Celebrated Harpist Peter Sterling’s life is a reminder to all who offer themselves as an open vessel for the Divine, that there’s no stop button once Spirit unleashes its creativity. Peters response to his heavenly calling 25 years ago, blossomed into an endlessly-creative multi-media career, spanning 16 studio albums, numerous Music Awards, a book called Hearing the Angels Sing, and an impressive series of crystal-frosted Mandala art prints — enough to fill a gallery.

Anthony Mazzella began studying music on the violin at age five. He then proceeded to learn the rudiments of music on piano until falling in love with the guitar at age thirteen. Throughout his adolescence he studied with several private guitar teachers, but Anthony attributes the greater part of his education to ear training. His influences are many, but none more profound than the music and techniques of guitar masters such as Michael Hedges, Pat Metheny, Carlos Montoya, Eddie Van Halen, Andres Segovia and countless others.

Tickets for this must see event are only $20 per person! For more information or to purchase tickets please visit www.sedonafilmfestival.org or call 928.282.1177. You may also purchase tickets at the Sedona Film Festival office and Mary D. Fisher Theatre, located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.

If you are staying at our Sedona hotel we will be more than happy to drop you off and pick you up from this concert in our Inn of Sedona Complimentary “About Town” Guest Shuttle.
