Philip, born and raised in Southern England has from a young age had a deep connection to the natural world that surrounded him. The sacred Neolithic landscape of his native county of Wiltshire inspired him to begin a spiritual journey of self-discovery which continues through his mediation and mindfulness practices along with regularly attending retreats and workshops. His journey also led him to the healing art of Reiki, and after many years of study in the United Kingdom he attained the level of Master/Teacher. Regular Reiki along with his meditation practice has increased his connection and understanding of the world around him and enables him to experience a life fulfilled.
After many years as an ordained Spiritual Humanist minister he regularly performs wedding ceremonies within the ancient monument of Stonehenge in England, some of the most stunning locations in the American Southwest as well as at Kala Patthar, Base Camp Mount Everest.

Debra, born in a small village in southern Germany and raised on two continents has traveled the world to discover and explore its secrets.
Years ago, Debra felt a calling to be ordained as a Chaplain, so she could be at the bedside of sick and dying patients. With a natural love and ability in this area, she has worked with many people as they transitioned from this world.
She also had a desire to work with people in other precious moments and this manifested in the birth of Monumental Arizona Weddings. Today Debra is happily ministering to hundreds of couples as they commit to one another in the most magnificent surroundings. When meeting with couples from all over the world, she noticed a common thread amongst them. They all felt a deep and spiritual connection to the beautiful landscapes. It seemed a natural progression to engage many more people in the opportunity to get away from the daily rigors of life to find peace and connection.
Monumental Meditation is a passion project Debra visualized years ago and now the time has come for this dream to be realized. With the help of an amazing team of sacred souls we are happy to introduce our Wellness Retreats.

Bernadette, an Occupational Therapist, has been trained under John Barnes in Myofascial Release techniques since 2002. Her background as an Occupational Therapist since 1990, has given her a foundation to help a significant number of people who have had medical complications resulting in myofascial pain and dysfunction including: back, neck, cervical, knee injuries, womans health complications, shoulder and hand injuries, from pinched nerves, tendon injuries and arthritis.
Having experienced tail-bone injuries resulting in nerve pain and dysfunction she was able to get some relief from massage, acupuncture, chiropractic and reflexology, but it was not until getting myofascial release treatments that the pain was completely resolved. She has helped chronic pain sufferers who have sought out relief in those modalities as well, but the results of myofascial release have been long-lasting. The above modalities can still be complimentary to myofascial release and help with overall pain and movement dysfunction.
