The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is "Tse' bighanilini", which means "the place where water runs through rocks." Upper Antelope is at about 4,000 feet above sea level and the canyon walls rise 120 feet above the stream bed and is located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation. I'm here in the winter to escape the hoards of tourists who frequent this canyon every day in season. I'm looking to see, feel and touch the beauty, peace and healing powers of this sacred place. Walking into Antelope Canyon is like walking into the heart of the Earth.
As Veree' leads us through the inner canyon she pauses to play her native flute as we explored the canyon. Listening to the rhythmic swells of her flute as it echoes off the canyon walls is a very intimate and deeply personal experience. It’s as if Veres’ music belongs in this place of reflection and reverence. Listening to her music is a gift that has great transformational potential.
Taking in the wonder!
