The Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park
“This is what peace feels like.”
This time of the year the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park, in West Sedona is especially beautiful and inspiring just after dawn and just before sunset. The peaceful spiritual energy of the Stupa seems to be enhanced at those quiet times of the day and of course you’ll miss the mid day heat. We recommend that anyone visiting Sedona for spiritual, discovery, and self help purposes makes the time to spend a couple of hours at the Amitabha Stupa.
You do not have to be a Buddhist to go to the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park. Anyone can go and walk around and explore, or sit and meditate on the shaded platform. Children and pets (on leashes) are welcome. Please be quiet and respectful of people that are there praying, walking and meditating. There is abundant signage that will explain a lot about the Stupa.
There is only one energy at the Stupa; peace and the wish for peace for all beings. In the world today, sometimes it can be hard to even imagine peace, much less experience it in its pure form. To feel what peace feels like is why everyone should visit the Stupa. It is rare and precious, and you will receive blessings just for making the visit.
If you would like to bring a group to visit the Stupa, the Stupa caretakers would be happy to meet you there and give you a 15-30 minute presentation called “The Inside Story of the Amitabha Stupa”, which will inspire and enrich your experience. To arrange a group visit and presentation, please call 1-877-788-7229 or email email@example.com in advance. Presentations by the Stupa caretakers are free of charge, although donations are gratefully accepted.
To make special arrangements for handicapped access to the Stupa, please call 1-877-788-7229 or email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
Local Tour Guides:
Several local tour guides are intimately familiar with the Stupa and work closely with the Stupa caretakers. They are well versed in the history and story of the Amitabha Stupa and have been trained by the caretakers. For the best experience with a local tour guide, ask if they have been through the stupa training.
From Route 89A in West Sedona, turn onto Andante Dr. at the Circle K store. Near the top of Andante Drive, turn left onto Pueblo Drive. The entrance to the Peace Park is on the right.

Coming to Sedona this weekend for Father’s Day? Consider these 4 ideas for making your Father’s Day great.
On select Saturday evenings, the Verde Canyon Railroad departs the depot at 5:30 p.m. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues until the scene gently transforms into a scandalous sunset. The return trip offers a serene glimpse into the nocturnal wildlife set against a dazzling canvas of celestial bodies. As the sun slips behind distant mountains, cool air sweeps through the Canyon signaling the resident wildlife to begin their nightly rounds. The Canyon comes alive with the luminous glow of moon-kissed skies on Verde Canyon Railroad’s popular Saturday Starlight Tours. It is an evening not to be missed!
Grape Train Escape & The Tequila Sunset Limited
Along with Saturday Night Starlight Rides, the railroad offers wonderful wine tasting and tequila tasting events in First Class cars. The Grape Train Escape focuses on a select wine-producing region, and each vintage is paired with appetizers that complement the wine. The cool high desert twilight air caresses wine tasters and stargazers as the moon illuminates the wilderness, offering a rare vista from the outdoor viewing cars. The Tequila Sunset Limited offers sophisticated and sensual sipping of premium tequilas paired with delectable cheeses, Ceviche, Margarita cake and infused chocolate-covered peppers. This is just a sliver of the evening’s event, all prepared and served in first-class comfort.
