Shamans Cave, also known as Robbers Roost, is a very special place in Sedona that when visited, one should show great respect to land and the people that are meditating and doing ceremony there. It is believed to have been a place where the Shaman of the local tribe would have performed healing and ceremony. Also, it is said that when you meditate in the cave long enough, you can hear messages from your ancestors.
The first photo was taken from inside the cave looking out of the opening. The cave is a large room, approximately 20 feet long, 40 feet wide and 15 feet high, and open on one side. Inside, there’s a near-perfect, six-foot-wide circular window cut out of the thick rock that neatly frames the amazing view. There were two distinct sets of ruins within this rock formation when first discovered but now they are gone. There are also several metate’s in the floor where the natives would have used to grind special herbs or corn for healing and prayer.
