Experience Journey into Healing in Arizona's Jewel of the Desert
Journey into Healing will take place at the world-acclaimed Biltmore Resort & Spa, nestled on 39 acres at the foot of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Known as the “Jewel of the Desert,” the Biltmore is a soothing oasis of lush gardens, sparkling pools, and elegant architecture. Guests have easy access to the hiking trails, horseback riding, and outdoor beauty offered by the adjacent nature preserve. In February, while much of the U.S. is coping with winter snow and sub-zero temperatures, Arizona enjoys mild weather and sunny days.
The Biltmore is just a 15-minute drive from the Sky Harbor International Airport and offers easy access to the museums, concert halls, fine restaurants, and other cultural attractions in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding valley.
The Chopra Center has reserved a limited number of guest rooms at the Biltmore for Journey into Healing participants.
