About Mago Retreat Center
Sedona Mago Retreat is operated by Tao Fellowship, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is â€œLove Humanity, Love the Earth.â€
Tao Fellowship was established in 1998 to promote the spirit of Tao as universal principles of harmonious living and a peaceful world. The tradition of Taoism that Tao Fellowship represents is Sun Tao (ä»™é“), the Korean Taoist tradition with 10,000-year history. Sun (ä»™) is the combination of human (äºº) and mountain (å±±), meaning a human being living in harmony with nature. Sedona Mago Retreat is its primary means of educating the public about the principles and practices of Sun Tao.
As a spiritual centre seeking interfaith friendship, we believe that peace and harmony can be realized through our connection with Earth; without which, humanity cannot survive. Our common goal is sustainability of earth and all of its inhabitants, now and for future generations.
Founder Ilchi Lee
Ilchi Lee initiated the spiritual movement of enlightenment that eventually contributed to the formation of Tao Fellowship. Since its establishment, Ilchi Lee also helped the organization as a member of its board of directors. Currently he doesnâ€™t have any position or title in the organization. However, he still loves to meet members of Tao Fellowship and gives lectures occasionally. This is part of his life-long endeavor to encourage world peace by helping people develop the positive potentials of their brains. For years, Ilchi Lee has strived to help thousands of people worldwide enhance their physical, mental, and spiritual capacity by honoring and harnessing the energy of their brains. His efforts started in the early 1980â€™s, with the creation of the first Dahn Yoga studio in Seoul. Since then, he has formed several non-profit and for-profit organizations, authored over 30 books, including New York Times Bestseller â€œThe Call of Sedona,â€ and organized numerous events to help bring that vision to fruition.
Born in Korea in 1950, Ilchi Lee struggled through school until he started asking the questions that most mattered to him: who am I, and what is my purpose here?
His inquiry led him down a path of study that included spiritual practices of Tao, clinical pathology, physical education, and oriental medicine. Ilchi Lee was fascinated with the interaction between the human body and the psyche, and focused his attention on both Western and Eastern medicinal wisdom. Through intense personal training and hours of study, he started to see a glimmer of the philosophy that would later form the basis of the Tao Fellowship, among his other endeavors.
For Ilchi Lee, the true potential of humanity is intimately linked to the potential of the human brain. Tao Fellowship seeks to help develop and amplify the spiritual and peaceful nature of the human brain.

Food is a precious gift from Mother Earth. Bless the food with joy and gratitude before you eat. Take time for a prayer of gratitude to Heaven for creating life, to the Earth for growing it, to Humans for preparing the food, for keeping life flowing in you. When you eat, chew well with a peaceful mind then you can intake not only nutrients but also the blessed energy of the food. Close your eyes (or look down your nose), and feel the chewing. Chew over 30 times before you swallow. Slowly swallow the food and sense the food coming down to the center at your lower abdomen. When you eat and breathe please remember the energy of the Earth and of Heaven becoming integrated as one within you. Feel grateful for life and consider how to use your energy to repay the blessings of Heaven and Earth, and benefit the World and Humanity.
Reviews Of Mago Retreat Center
Samyama is a beautiful modern state of the art yoga facility. Absolutely gorgeous and well laid-out, with a meditation room. But the highlight of the place is SHASTRI. Shastri teaches a traditional Indian style of yoga, an unforgettable experience! His positive energetic approach is very calming for a intense yoga practice. Yes class is intense, but Shastri is adept at giving modifications to beginners. I brought my sixteen year old daughter to my second class with Shastri, and she loved it. She attends class weekly!
I have been to Samyama twice and am totally hooked. Cheryl Hsu has been awesome and I look forward to my next visit (next week). Michelle at the front desk is very welcoming and pleasant. Great facility with great staff!
It is most beautiful place in the world!! Please come to visit sendona if want to find your Dream and Hope,such a beautiful and powerful Energy in sedona will help you.
Truly a place your mind can restore itself and your spirit can come home to. I haven't been in a while and it feels like a part of me is yearning to return. The living arrangements blend right into the landscape, it is so quiet you can hear your breath, and the food is wholesome, nourishing, and delicious. Every training I've done there has been inspiring and hopeful. I truly recommend this place.
A very special place, even for the Sedona area. The pace is slow and serene but the upkeep is very professional. It feels peaceful, spiritual, and inspiring all at once.
Sedona Mago Retreat Center is one of a kind. It it a welcoming, inspiring, healthy, soulful experience from the Healing meditation garden, to the organic vegetarian meals, the warm and wise staff to the breathtaking scenery. There are few places in the world that can offer simple yet comfortable accommodations, connected yet independent experiences, spiritual yet deeply human ideals. It offers refuge from the automation of life style and invites you to open your eyes to something deeper and more subtle. There is something here for everyone because ultimately Mago Garden assists in the deepening of self awareness which naturally inspires a profound love and respect for ourselves, our world and each other.
So peaceful and healing! The energy is perfect for meditation. Hardly any accurate words as everyone will have their own experience as long as you stay open it will be that of a lifetime!
Genia, Susan and Jerry, thank you for saving my life. I'm forever grateful. I was in a dark place and wanted to die and you guys showed me love and taught me how to feel again. I gave you guys an acknowledgement in my book (tap that!) as a way to say, Thank You! Namaste
The pictures simply cannot capture how special this place really is. The energy, the beauty and the wonderful staff make visiting Sedona Mago Retreat center something you have to experience!
I have had the pleasure of working closely with the staff for three years on events and am always inspired by their commitment to service. The accommodations are wonderful and the food is out of this world! I love Sedona Mago!
A Magical Place! Everyone the staff and the volunteers are so welcoming and wonderful. I felt so well cared for! Food was wonderful every meal. Thank you for such a life changing stay.
Amazing, amazing, amazing! I can't even put into words how I feel about this place. I found exactly what I was looking for here... and not only that, I took with me, all of what was already within me. I couldn't be more grateful!
Just returned from the "Finding True Self" workshop this last weekend, Thank you Chun and staff for your knowledge and inspiration as I continue my journey and to the fellow retreat mates on their own journeys for their support and love.
Exquisite. This place has a delightful harmony that can be felt throughout the property. I feel deeply the loving intention this place was created with for the seeker to enjoy. To assist on your path of spiritual happiness. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax and tune into the song of their heart. The food is the most delicious and healthy wholesome food ever! With labyrinths, gardens and lakes, there are so many places to walk and relax. It is filled with gentle and sweet surprises for your meditative enjoyment. the classic Sedona red rocks are the backdrop and there is no shortage of jaw-dropping views. A great place to connect with like-minded people in your program or in one that is concurrently happening. Read The Call of Sedona by Ilchi Lee to understand how this amazing place came about. Enjoy!
Such a beautiful place on so many levels. I am grateful to have discovered this place and take many amazing yoga trainings and meditation retreats here.
First time I visited back in 2006, i felt like i came home. I awakened the healer within me here, and it transformed my life. I have been back over 10 times now! Thank you!
I first came here in 1998, it was nice then.. since then I have been back dozens of times and every time the facilities get better and better.
This place is very peaceful. If you are looking for some place to recover your health and happiness, it is the best place that you want.
It's funny how easy it is for people to write reviews for places and experiences that displease them. Well, I say it's time to turn it around and share more about positive experiences. That what I will say about Sedona Mago Retreat! The place is magical and beautiful in so many ways. I have gone there for many workshops, but ultimately consider it one of my favorite places for hiking, walking and simply meditating. I love it!!
It was hard to believe that I was in the desert ! :) Everything was just perfect to find out myself and my journey. and the Service is very supportive and thank you for the smile and kindness from all the staffs. I absolutely wanna go again.
How can I express this place? Lovely, beaituful, inspirational, peaceful, spiritual, and more.... Please be there and experience the beauty of the place and yourself.
Sedona Mago Retreat is the really special place to me and others. I’ve felt strong energy whenever I was there, and I experienced a very deep peace through my heart and soul when I looked at the sky. I love this place where it gave me the chance to feel and experience special energy and spiritual life.
I've been to this place for a week retreat. This was one of the most unique travel experience I've ever had. Located out of nowhere in Sedona Arizona, this Oasis of a spiritual safe haven was completely therapeutic. Sedona Mago Retreat Center will always be in my mind whenever I think of peace and relaxation.
Beautiful and meaningful place to stay. I really like to see the Milky Way here.
This place is very comfortable like my home. And, like any great places, I like this place more and more as I visit.
One of the most beautiful and serene places that i've ever been to. Every time i visit, my heart feels warm and at home. Perfect for meditation and nature just heals you.
This retreat is located 11 miles off from highway 89A, sure you'll have to take off-road, but it is absolutely highly recommendable to visit. Once you get there, you'll be surrounded by full of healing atmosphere with beautifully and sincerely landscaped vegetation and facilities. Food is healthy organic and rooms are well equipped as well. I also loved the Healing Garden with a lake. Really beautiful!!! By being in Sedona Mago Retreat Center, you'll be able to meet yourself and the earth. I found my spiritual path at the retreat center.
Mago Gardens is surrounded by a red rock landscape that inspires wonder and to experience reconnection with oneself and the environment.
Sedona Mago Retreat is the place you can go deeper inside to meet your essence and to recover the connection to origin of life. You will have the most precious experiences in your life.
I can't describe with words how wonderful and healing its energy is. Come and experience it. Heaven on the earth. It will help you develop your whole potencial. You become your genuine self here.
This place is amazing. I have been going here for years. It is far from anything else and is quiet and peaceful. The food is so fresh and tasty, I think they grow a lot of the veggies and fruit right there! I have thoroughly every training I have participated in and all the beautiful people I have met here. If you haven't been I highly recommend it.
For the person who wants to get away from busy life and experience the energy of mother Earth,...there is no better place. Secluded in nature as far as the eye can see. Courteous and genuinely sincere staff. Clean and downplayed rooming. Perfect for that "ME time". This is a REAL get-away!
I love this place, it's like home away from home. The Healing Garden is the perfect place to do walking or sitting meditation; I usually like to go in the early morning when there are very few others. If you haven't been there before, I very highly recommend it. and if you haven't been in a while -- go back soon! (you know the staff will welcome you, as always :)
It is a great place to get away from the busy world and return to yourself. It feels like coming home. The energy that emanates from nature here is exceptionally healing and facilitates spiritual awakening and peace of mind. Without exaggeration I can say that I experienced Heaven on Earth here.
This is such a magical place. I have been here many times, and it always feels like coming home. Mago Garden is the place to go to rejuvenate yourself. You will cleanse your body mind and spirit.
Nice place to connect and live with nature. Here you can experience a culture of earth centered living. Peace.
I've been here several times and have always had a wonderful experience. It's a great getaway that gives you time and space to be with yourself. The beautiful surroundings take my breath away. The food is great too, and they label everything so that if you have food allergies or are vegan or vegetarian, it's easy to know what you can eat.
I like herb fragrance in every corner when I walk this retreat. Their garden is so peaceful and beautiful. Food is one of the best fusion Asian and semi vegan food.
Sedona Mago Retreat is a place where you can keep purifying and emptying so you can connect with your Soul.
I love tranquility in this place. It opens my heart to the origin of all existences including my soul. Feelings vary based on time throughout the day. Before the sunrise, in the morning, at mid-day, during the sunset, at night. I feel that I'm standing at the center of the universe when I stay at Sedona Mago Retreat.
I feel like this place is one of the most sacred spots on Earth. Tucked into a mountain range far away from the tourist side of Sedona, all you can feel is the song of your soul as you move across the red sand to energy vortexes, training halls and my favorite, the dining hall!
what I will say about Sedona Mago Retreat Awesome and Revitalizing My body and deep soul at there The place is beautiful and awakening with so many ways. you can see stars at night ,
Sedona Mago Retreat is a sanctuary for your soul that nourishes every sense and need of your body, mind and spirit. Just take a deep breath and no matter where you stand in the retreat, you feel fully alive and connected. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable and the food is excellent. It is the best place in the world to get away from the stress of daily living and rejuvenate.
I have been there numerous times, but I most remember my first time. As we were approaching, riding along a long unpaved road deep into the high desert national forest I was mesmerized by the awesome beauty and majesty of the area and surrounding mountainous rocks. When we finally arrived, I had this overwhelming sense that I was coming home and that my soul found its home there. Please find the home of yours.
I just love this place.....When ever I leave this place I feel like I am leaving my hometown village. The food is great, energy is great. Some complain about the red dust in the room saying the roms are not clean but I even love them too!!!
Sedona Mago Retreat center is the most beautiful and peaceful place I've ever been! The beauty of the red rocks and green juniper trees are so powerful yet calming. The staff are kind and bright and the training programs I've been to have all been just wonderful! There are plenty of places to walk to for different experiences.
Heaven on Earth. The minute you drive in, you'll feel peaceful and calm, the perfect place for healing and self-reflection. Staff are always kind, ready to assist and go the extra mile to help make sure you are comfortable and have access to whatever you need. My favorite places: the Healing Garden and Senya Valley, as well as the abundant fruit trees and herb bushes all around the retreat center. Check it out!!!
I've been to Sedona Mago Retreat multiple times for the past 10 years, both for workshops and leisure, by myself and with family. The rooms are eco-friendly and built into the red rock earth. Every time I go there, the rooms are perfectly clean, neat and comforting for my OCD. The bath products are eco-friendly. The beds are soft and comfy - I always rest well. The organic vegetarian buffet offers a salad bar, a feature salad or two, 2 or more hot dishes, hot soups and freshly made brown or white rice. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The workshops provided by SMRC have been transformational and opening in the ways I needed at the time. No photograph can do the view justice. At night, the stars are breathtaking. The roads and walking paths are mindfully laid out with love. I always love returning to SMRC where I learn by example to live my life with intention.
Just spent three days there this past week. The food is a wonderful choice of pescetarian, vegetarian & vegan dishes (some of which is grown in their organic garden), the landscape displays some of the most beautiful Sedona views imaginable, and the land has a feeling of great sanctity that comes when people truly respect the space they live in and all that mother nature has to offer. Bring your hiking shoes!

This is an indescribable place of simplicity and deep spiritual connection. The staff is accommodating and the special trainings are exceptionally meaningful. Your body and soul breathes. Looking up at the Sedona night sky after a day of deep reflection is priceless.
I visited Sedona Mago Retreat Center last weekend. I was guided to a new vortex place I've never been to before. It was such a beautiful and peaceful place. After I visited this place, I felt deep cleansing in my chakras and recovered my pure soul and passion for my new journey waiting in front of me.Thank you so much for the opportunity to visit such a sacred and warm place.
I love, love this place! It feels like home every time I go. The grounds are pristine and well kept. You can feel sincerity in the air. They are working towards creating a sustainable facility, which is very admirable. You can enjoy food which they grew in their farm, so delicious! The rooms are clean and comfortable.... I always sleep so deeply there. I always have an amazing healing experience. The meeting spaces are incredible and have all the things you need to have a great conference. Thank you for all that you do!
I cannot forget the feeling when i visited here first time. It's like your hometown. so beautiful place !!
Sedona Mago Retreat Center is a beautiful place full of healing energy. I love the simplicity of the retreat center and they are very environmentally conscious with their own organic garden and all the food waste is composted! The staff are very helpful and friendly. One of my favorite places to meditate is at their pond under the weeping willow tree. It's a wonderful place to explore and connect with yourself.
I have visited Sedona Mago Retreat many times and every time I get there I take time to absorb the beauty of scenery and kindness of staff. I love walking in the healing garden barefoot. I love the food being served. I experienced recharging of my body, healing my emotions and regaining focus on what I want and need. Sedona Mado Retreat gives me a feeling of home. Can't wait to go again. !!!!
Sedona Mago Retreat center is truly a place where you can become closer to yourself again. It is a healing place surrounded by beauty and love. A wellspring of good energy vibrates here. I recommend to everyone to visit.
This is truly my spiritual home. So beautiful and embracing, it's energy is wonderfully healing. It is my joy to visit this place. Thank you mother Mago.
This is one of the most peaceful, beautiful places on earth. It's the perfect setting for having a class or going to a class. The food is mostly organic and mostly grown there. There is no TV or distractions if you want to meditate or just connect with nature again. Someone said it is like heaven on earth and I totally agree! You can do a self guided tour there anytime or join one of their organized Meditation Tours. It is definitely worth your time!
This is a place to be!! Wonderful energy pure people, wonderful view all around and the best organic food. I Love Mago Garden!!
When I first visited Sedona Mago Retreat, it was about the Sun was setting and the sunlight was shining at the Secret mountain and the whole mountain was glowing in golden pink orange. I still see it whenever I think of this special place. More beautiful than the beauty of the nature here is the energy of the people's heart who put so much love in this place.
Sedona Mago Retreat is very special and secret place. Place where you can find your soul , your peace, your home and you never forget it.
It is such a special place. If you really want to rejuvenate and ready to restart, you should visit this place.
Sedona Mago Retreat is one of the most sacred place on Earth. I have been this place for several times and I have had a great time there. When I am there, I feel that there is home of my soul. Also, everybody is so kind and food is great. I love this place and I am looking forward to going back this place again.
If I can, I would give 10 stars. This is THE best place to be. Outstanding. Not only because of the beauty and serenity of this place but because of the liveliness and authenticity you feel from the people there. LOVE IT !
This is one place I really feel at home. There's something about the land, the energy and the people at this retreat take such sincere care of the place and the visitors. The accommodations are beautiful, the food delicious - they have an organic garden where they grow most of their food. For an experience beyond your typical tourist stay or even your typical retreat center, Definitely come here.
Mago Garden is where I go to uplift my soul, to train my body, and feel at peace. I feel so much inspiration and hope when I come for programs there. The grounds a re well kept, the people friendly and warm, the food great! I recommend visiting this beautiful Oasis at least once in a lifetime.
If your truly want to take a vacation for your Mind, Body and Spirit this is the place for you. You will not only see the beauty of the earth, you will feel the spirit of the earth. For me it takes me back to a place of gratitude.

The accommodations are perfect for this haven. It is so beautiful at night too. There are so many starts, I always try to reach for them!
Best place to connect with your soul and nature, unwind from the Daily life stress and quiet your brain.

I've only been there once but I'm going back again soon. Such a wonderful, magical place
I really love this place so much. I felt like my soul's house. Air ..mountine.. trees .. desert.. they like me..another me.. Thank you
I love visiting Sedona Mago Retreat. The positive energy and profound sense of peace, coupled with compelling programs and truly beautiful people simply can't be matched.
this place is very special in the earth. i can listen the earth ' s voice and feel it's soul.
I love coming here. The food is fantastic. The rooms are cozy. The scenery is AMAZING!! I cannt say enough good things about Sedona Mago Retreat. I cant wait to come here again.

Simplemente hermodo se puede disfrutar un dua soleado un dia fresco comer rico y rica compalis
Beautiful peaceful location...would return without hesitation.
This retreat center has been a part of my spiritual journey for some time now. I have been through so much there, and I consider Mago Garden my home away from home. The atmosphere is so serene and I genuinely treasure the time I get to spend there.
A wonderful experience. The place is beautiful in many ways. More importantly is what you get to leave with and keep in one's daily living. Plan to return there often.
This is the best place to go in the U.S. for quiet contemplation and excellent learning programs! Mago Retreat is nestled into the majestic high desert, and there is no sound at night except from nature. There is no hotel/resort bling here; the rooms are simple, without electronic intrusions, and the food is wonderfully fresh and healthy. The grounds blend naturally into the landscape, with plenty of places for quiet meditation. Go be refreshed and revived!
Mago Garden is a wonderful and inspiring place to visit (and yes, I WOULD want to live there). The thoughtfully created buildings and grounds are only surpassed by the natural beauty of the area. It is well worth the trip to plan a stay at Mago Garden, especially when done in combination with a guided meditation retreat.
It is like an oasis in the desert. The Healing Garden is my favorite. Mago Gardens has an aura of peacefulness filled with healing energy that is life changing. The food is fantastic. It's healthy and very tasty. You can eat as much as you like and feel great! The rooms are pristine but you won't be spending much time there. The folks there are the best! They make you feel like you've come home. It's an experience you will keep wanting to go back to.
One of my most favorite places in the world. A place to connect with the true beauty and power of the desert. Highly recommended!✨
I was amazed with the quality of every piece of my experience here. From food to guest services to facilities to programs there wasn't a beat missed, and SO MANY personal touches which really set it apart for me. It's quiet and isolated so if you're going for a personal stay, make sure that's what you're in the mood for. But programs with lots of energy are also offered.
There's just so much magic to behold in the Sedona and the Mago Retreat center is no exception. With its unique energy vortexes, the experiences here were deeply touching and viscerally transformative. This place holds a special place in my heart, one that is felt each time I arrive with the thought "Finally, I'm returning home" .
This is a powerful and magical place that evokes the best in each of us and should be returned to time and time again. I am grateful for the privilege of being a part of this community if only for a short while.
This is the most amazing retreat center in the world! When I go there I feel so at peace, so connected to nature and so alive. The food is amazing and the people are incredible warm and loving. I went 5 times in one year! I would go back in a heart beat!
It is one of my favorite places to keep staying. I can't forget when I got there at the first time... I could feel peace of mind, oneness with nature and the universe by seeing countless stars at night. I recommend this place for relaxation and getting peace of your mind.
This place holds inexplicable serenity and power. One of the most beautiful places in the world.
Beautiful & Serene. The food was AMAZING! Thank you Chef! ���� Namasté
They need new linens - they felt very dated. Polyester - yuk. Food was mediocre.
Everything magically beautiful can be found at Sedona Mago Retreat - the people - the space - the views--- Simply majestic...
Loved it here! Went twice in a month and have plans to come back again soon.
I had just attended two workshops at Mago Retreat Center from 8/9 - 8/19 and stayed 1 extra full day after. I actually have come to Mago over 20 times since 2007. It feels like my Soul's home. I make it a point to come here atv least once a year to recharge and reconnect with myself on a deeper level. It's the perfect place to re-energize and reaffirm my life purpose and mission. Their food is great! The staff maintains the grounds sincerely and really well. They have several programs that anyone can definitely benefit from. These workshops and programs are lead by wonderful trainers who have so much love and compassion and profound wisdom to share about life and everything in it. They are highly trained and experienced. Their Welcome center has been upgraded and it's absolutely gorgeous! My favorite spot is the Healing Garden- very serene and connects one to nature profoundly- inside and out. It has the spot ( the bridge where the tree and small water running through) that showed up in my dream in 2006, 6 months before I even knew about Body and Brain discipline. I will definitely be back within 6 months. Sometimes I wish I lived close to Mago so I can come every week. :)
The best place I've ever been. It is truly transforming!
A truly scary place where hoards of people gather to blindly follow their "spiritual leader". These people only care about: • your money, they want it bad. Their workshops - which are all the same - are insanely overpriced. • Korea. They are very proud of their Korean roots and will attempt to impose their culture on you. • Ilchi Lee. They view this man as the God of the 21st century. They will do everything and anything this man asks them to do.
It's so peaceful there. The beauty of the red mountains, serenity, becoming one with nature, well worth the trip to Mago Retreat.
This is truly a fantastic place to come to heal the body, heart, and spirit! The staff and trainers are all excellent with big hearts and bright minds. Thank you all!
I love this place, looking to rejuvenate your energy, this is the place to do so.

There is a scared magestic feeling all throughout the land here. A beautiful place to get in touch and in tune with yourself, the elements and amazing people. I recommend anyone who has awakened to there soul journey to visit Sedona Mago Retreat.
Sedona Mago Retreat is the place where you can feel the nature energy, find peace in your mind and happiness in your heart. Come and experience the place yourself!
Oh this place is Paradise! From the hidden waterfall and pool, to the magical weeping willow, to the energy of the labyrinths. I love love love this place
I have been to Mago Retreat 9 times. I just can't love this place enough. Every time I was there I felt so home as I could relax effortlessly from all the mundane life stress as well as get comfort from soothing energy the land and environment provide. Serenity, healing, soothing and spiritual are the a few words I could use to describe my experience at Mago Garden. And I have met so many kind and wonderful souls there with whom I made good friends and consider now as my soul family. Mago Garden is surely one of my favorite place on earth. I feel like I am upgraded every time I return home from there. I'll be there next week for my 10th visit and I can hardly wait!
I attended The Gathering of the Shamans event at Sedona Mago Retreat Center this last April. I was so impressed with this facility! The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were immaculately maintained and beautiful. The food was amazing. The energy was out of this world! I can't wait to visit Sedona Mago Retreat Center again!
I ♡Mago Garden, this is my sacred place to restore and renew my energy and connect deeper to my self. All the prigrams that they offer are trully amazing and deeply healing and awakening. This place has the best food, staff and accomodation!! ♡
What's not to love here? The serenity and sense of well being that surrounds your time here is priceless. I'm not a vegetarian so the food is just so-so to me, but there's plenty of it with good cookie and nut snacks throughout the day. The staff is great.
I have been to Mago Retreat many times. I dream of it often, especially I think how peaceful it is there and how it is such a blessing to walk the grounds and experience such a close connection to nature. To take a workshop there is also amazing... The principles for healthy living, understanding the tao and mastering your energy are unique and effective to help you change your life for the better. I have seen a significant impact on myself and my relationships. I wish many people can visit this beautiful place.
I have more conviction for my life and how I can grow and make the world a better place... I received a lot of healing, and gained a deep understanding of myself and how to connect to myself and my energy. Now I have more conviction for my life and how I can grow and make the world a better place. Reconnecting with my soul in such a deep way is such a gift. Words cannot express my sense of gratitude.
Having the luxury of focusing on myself and using my body effectively... I came to Sedona Mago Retreat with a very poor body condition. My energy was too weak to get me back on track physically. Having the luxury of focusing on myself and using my body effectively through the energy movements and meditations made a complete change in my physical condition in just a few days and restored my confidence in who I really am.
Everyone on the staff was friendly and warm… Finding True Self was exactly what I needed; Chun reaches to her true self to teach us and give us the resources needed. Everyone on the staff was friendly and warm. They supported our efforts and goals 150% Thank you.
What I realized was that I was not focused on listening to my soul’s voice... I have had many awakenings during these 7 days; however, the most important realization was about what was holding me back from accomplishing my goals and my dreams in my life. What I realized was that I was not focused on listening to my soul’s voice. I now know through experience that I need to trust myself and deepen my breathing, so I can become bright and choose the things in my life that would reflect my soul and divinity.
I know that Eden is here on Earth and Mago Retreat is where God resides... “My spiritual awakening happened 3 yrs, 5 months ago when I decided to become sober. I also knew that my tobacco addiction would be the next step to healing myself. I gave up smoking 11 months ago. My body responded by gaining 40lbs, my mind had so much information I couldn’t think clearly, my energy level was all over the place, if I even had any. I now know that it is the confusion of my spiritual level. The exercises have taught me how to gain energy within myself instead of outside of myself. I have tools to use to advance my journey. I now have clarity and receive guidance from a higher source. It has helped me to retain, neutralize and redirect my emotional state so that I have less upset. Nature is such an important part of my being—I know that Eden is here on Earth and Mago Retreat is where God resides. Thank you. I carry you in my Mind’s eye.”
I now have hope and determination to transform myself and be one with my soul... The best retreat I have ever been on and I have been on many. When I came to the retreat center I was not in a very good place, but when I left I felt more of a clear understanding of my life purpose and how to achieve my goals. I now have hope and determination to transform myself and be one with my soul. If you have this hope, this is the place for you.
As a pilgrim on my spiritual path... “As a pilgrim on my spiritual path I found the workshop to help expand, open and cleanse my chakras so I can better lead and serve humanity.”
All I can say is wow! This was my first retreat and it exceeded way above my expectations. Juniper’s classes were very educational and informative along with being so enjoyable.”
I got a small peek at my soul--and she is beautiful... “I’m 67 years old and have been struggling with what is next in my life. This experience has given me a path to take. It has introduced to me the true me and I got a small peek at my soul--and she is beautiful. It was a profound if ever so brief look at the potential of what I can achieve. Thank you.”
The Sedona Mago Retreat I was starting to wonder if Clare was trying to kill me. We had already visited and managed to survive one commune-esque location during our production trip in Arizona. There we were, the day before we were scheduled to head home, driving 11 miles down a sketcherific excuse for a road to what I was convinced was a bunch of tents with a big pool of cool-aid in the middle. Maybe if I had payed more attention to this location during our planning meeting I would have realized that my fears were unfounded, but at the moment I was sure our parents would be posting our images on milk cartons in a few days time. As we pulmagoretreat5webled in, my fears were immediately assuaged. While it was eerily quiet, everyone we passed nodded a friendly hello and gave a polite smile. As we walked the various garden paths, children ran in front of us in a wild pack and I decided the place couldn't be what I had feared. It was as Clare had said, just a retreat for people who needed to escape society for a while, and maybe find a piece of themselves in quite retrospect. Mago has several beautiful trails that wind around the property. From meticulously designed paths circling the natural pond at Mago's center to red dirt trails skimming the edge of the Sedona wilderness to paved pathways linking rooms to sunflower gardens and yoga facilities, this retreat is a site to behold and immediately calms the nerves. We both felt much more relaxed after spending only a couple hours walking around the area. The grounds at the Sedona Mago Retreat were gorgeous and no one challenged our impromptu presence (Mago welcomes un-scheduled visits on Saturdays, but asks for all other visits during the week to be registered beforehand). The atmosphere was accepting and passive. One that fit well with Mago Retreat’s billing as a center for spiritual awakening. They offer Tao meditation and yoga workshops that range from two to six days and personal retreats that can last significantly longer. Based on many of the previous retreats that have been held, focusing on AA and twelve-step programs, we gathered that many individuals had made a visit to refresh their bodies as well as their minds. We were happy to learn that the retreat also grows its own organic produce on the property and has a variety of both edible and ornamental gardens. They also have a handful of projects in the works including improving the previously mentioned road, installing renewable energy sources on-site and creating educational programs to develop more sustainable living communities elsewhere.
I was blessed to be able to take several classes in a 3 week period. I was sad, angry from a recent loss of my mother, filled with negativity from listening to 36 apartment units always complain, depressed, exhausted feeling like I was now getting arthritis throughout my body along with my back and neck injuries I have treated for over 25 years and over medicated… They were getting ready to put me on high blood pressure medications (as though 13 medications were not enough) And the list goes on. When I made my decision to go to Sedona MAGO Retreat, it was a decision made from my intuition. I was too busy to spend time searching for the right one. I just knew…I had picked the right one and when I showed up… I KNEW THIS WAS MY NEW HOME AWAY FROM HOME. My original plan was to start off with the revitalizing detox then take a few personal days in between my other class which was TAO meditation and then fly home. As luck would have it….The class I really wanted to start off with became available to me because the other plans I had that weekend fell short when we broke down in Flagstaff, AZ. I WAS SO HAPPY!! I said turn around and take me back up to Sedona. It was the most amazing feeling I have ever had when we approached the town of Sedona. It was so peaceful, serene and I was in tears knowing that this is where I needed to be. It wasn’t as easy as thought it would be to be able to just show up and check in for the class that was going to start the next day. The system was going to make me earn my way into checking in at a moment’s notice. I had to leave that night and go find somewhere to camp out of my car. It was just part of the journey. I got to camp out under the stars in Sedona! Anyway, the next day I came back in and was able to sign up for STRESS TO STREGTH. I was so touched by this class and the teacher Chun Shim, that I quickly added another class to the end of my vacation which would be Finding True Self. I now had two days to pick up our boat trailer, drive it all the way down to Lake Havasu, drop it off in the middle of the night and then proceed to drive straight back to Salt Lake City, Utah getting us there as the sun came up. I now had 24 hours to find people to back me up for any problems that would arise (and they did) on the apartments as well as all other aspects of my life and be on my original plane heading for Sedona MAGO Retreat. I MADE IT! I was glowing all the way back to Sedona. It was October 28, 2015 and I knew I was going to be in heaven until Nov 17, 2015. I checked in on the 28th all smiles but as dawn came on the 29th the tears started flowing from what seemed like nowhere. My new friend Anthony that I had just met a couple of days prior directed me to the healing garden. Along the way, I met two other new friends that were just as concerned and loving as Anthony. They too, directed me to the healing garden. The HEALING GARDEN is where is all started. After a pleasant hour or so with my thoughts being written down in my journal….the journey began. REVITALIZING DETOX was my first stop. You walk in to a room not knowing what to expect. But the one thing I had come to expect is that somehow, someway, this class was going to be very informative, meaningful and extremely powerful in more ways than one. This was a tough class for me particularly since I walked into this one with 13 medications in my chest on top of all the toxic build up in my body. It was the foundation of my healing. What a satisfied feeling I had completing this class knowing I had put everything I had into making it work for me and I was well on my way. Btw…I only take 5 prescriptions now and they are all at lower doses. I am also, an organic freak now and annoy my boyfriend in the grocery store because of this and looking through labels. I learned how important clean living and eating is. TAO MEDITATION… I almost decided not to take because I was so emotionally, mentally and physically drained from the last class….so I thought. That would have been a BIG mistake… after a few hours of some nature meditation I was ready for the next class. Sayong Kim is an amazing man and instructor. This course which seemed light and emotionally easy sort of snuck up on you and before you knew it, you where in the middle of some heavy duty healing. It was unbelievable to see how the magical vortex’s, hiking and the right instructor could make such a big impact on your life…Instantly! Anthony…I haven’t forgotten you! Anthony was always there….somewhere….whether you saw him or not…you could feel his positive, happy, heart felt energy anywhere you went…. if you pictured his face….It was always with a beautiful smile! If he wasn’t smiling it was because he too, was healing you…with his sound healing sessions….He definitely is an important piece of life there. I took several days off for my own personal retreat to see how well I could integrate back into the world and it was wonderful to just go travel around a bit between MAGO and Havasu until my last class… FINDING TRUE SELF… You have to go into these classes trusting. Knowing that you are going down the path of healing…. You don’t know how, why or when…..Your just going…. And YOU WILL GET THERE! This was my final class and was happy to be back in the class room with Chun. You can just feel her light shining through. Again, by the end of the course, you could count on something very powerful happening within your self, your soul, your thoughts, your behavior, your energy….your body! I can’t say enough beautiful things about this place and those kind spirits that reach out to you…Trust me….I am someone that has been transformed into a butterfly….YOU NEED TO GO TAKE THE JOURNEY FOR YOUR SELF….ITS YOUR JOURNEY AND EVERYONES WILL BE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. I did not leave without booking 2.5 weeks for next year. I am hoping to return sooner than that! I have integrated a great deal of things into my life that I learned there, including starting out every morning with a little or a lot of meditation….It really makes a difference in holding a song in your heart through out the day.
