At 21, Dennis Andres experienced a spiritual awakening at Machu Picchu, during a year of volunteer work in Peru. He spent the rest of his 20’s working Czechoslovakia, Portugal, Moldova, Russia and Kazakstan, as a diplomat and consultant.
On his 30th birthday, he made a pivot. Moving to Sedona, Arizona, he became an international adventure guide, leading clients to Italy, Nepal, Tibet, Hawaii, Peru, and the American Southwest. Exploring sacred sites from Stonehenge to Siberia, he dined with the King of Mustang, outraced an avalanche in Kazakhstan on a snowboard, and flew with the Dalai Lama.
Yet the farther away he went, the more he realized that the epicenter for the synergy of the natural world and the sacred was most palpable in his home, Sedona. Its remarkable energy fosters transformation, healing, and miracles of every kind. Having walked 13,000 miles on Sedona’s trails and serving over 5,000 clients, no one understands this energy better.
Today, as a spiritual guide, he helps people find the next step on their spiritual path, securing a life of more happiness, freedom, love and abundance. Tapping Sedona to touch the heart, Dennis helps the highly conscious find the answers they have been looking foelsewhere.
The author of “Sedona’s Top Ten Hikes” and “Sedona Hikes: 225 Trails and Loops,” the man they call “Mr. Sedona” has appeared on or been endorsed by Good Morning America, USA Network, The Weather Channel, The San Francisco Chronicle, Arizona Highways, National Geographic Adventurer, Scottsdale Magazine, CBS 5 and Fox 10 Phoenix, Frommer’s Guidebooks, Canal Plus France, Every Day with Rachael Ray and Tucson Weekly.
A graduate of Georgetown University and Thunderbird School of Global Management, he has additionally studied Universidad del Pacifico in Lima, Peru and Leningrade State University, in St. Petersburg, Russia. He has studied seven languages, and is an accomplished meditator for thirty years.
Even so, he cannot cook, repair anything with moving parts, or keep appointments when the weather is good outdoors.
And the weather is always good outdoors.
