Sedona businesswomen serve as metahysical guides for tourists
Wondering where to go for a proper tarot card reading or who to call for astrological advice?
A new Sedona business aims to help tourists and local residents alike find the right metaphysical service to fit their individual needs.
Cosmic Concierges launched Jan. 1 of this year. The business offers a Web-based and book-bound directory of various local practitioners and energy workers.
Susan Hathaway and Debbie Crick created Cosmic Concierges. They are also the forces behind Cards of Illumination, another Sedona-based business.
Melissa Bindrim and Madison Morgan later joined Hathaway and Crick in the business. All four women are Sedona residents and all four have individual practices in the area.
The idea for the business came after years of putting together metaphysical trips and packages for friends and families.
Bindrim said it was logical to help others using their knowledge of the area's available psychic services. She said it's not easy for people who are new to Sedona.
"You're not going to find this in the yellow pages," Bindrim said.
The Cosmic Concierges directories are on sale throughout Sedona and the Verde Valley for $14.99. Pictures and descriptions of about 50 healers are included. A potential customer would then call Cosmic Concierges for the healer's contact information or for a more in-depth guidance service for $19.99.
"We're here to make the connection for people," Bindrim said.
With the new business underway, the four women are now sponsoring the Cosmic Prayer for Peace on Feb. 9 at the Sedona Creative Life Center from 7 to 9 p.m. It will be a night to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of northern Arizona and will include entertainment, motivational speakers and performances.
They also have plans to expand in the future and see Sedona as the perfect place for their business.
"We see the Verde Valley evolving into the western Mecca for the metaphysical experience. We anticipate the housing market and hospitality industries growing to accommodate both the influx of new residents and the increase in annual visitors to the Verde Valley area," said Bindrim. "We expect the Cosmic Concierges to be a voice and a resource for Sedona's expanding and evolving metaphysical community. Our business plans calls for expansion into additional cities nationally and internationally over the next three to five years."
