Mitakuye Oyasin (Mee-tah-kay Awe-sin) Morning Ritual

Join us each morning on the Salud Terrace to participate in a traditional Native American ceremony and unique Sonoran Desert experience. Welcoming higher perspective into your life should be on everyone's list of important things to do. The ancient people accomplished this via the warming sunrise, the Native American Flute, burning a sage prayer tie and an eagle feather blessing.

Begin each day by reflecting on the connection we all have with nature and each other, finding focus and creating lasting memories. In a ritual that is centuries old, you will have the opportunity to make your intentions known to the universe through the traditional burning of sage.

Experience the morning ritual and discover “Mitakuye Oyasin" at a breathtaking Tucson, Arizona, luxury resort.
