Sedona Mago Retreat

About us

Experience the beauty, feel the energy, and awaken your spirit

If you’re looking for a place to unwind and re-connect with what’s important, what better environment than one of the most beautiful deserts on the planet? Sedona Mago Retreat is located on a stunning, 163-acre stretch of land in the high Arizonan desert, 4,500-feet above sea level.From the hot days of summer to the cooling breezes of spring and autumn, to the snowcapped red rocks in the winter, it’s ideal for exploring nature, gazing at the stars, and re-connecting with everything that’s important in your life.

120 casitas mean the retreat is large enough for small groups to visit year round; but it is also small enough for the privacy and meditation you need for holistic healing. Everything here is geared towards healing the body, calming the mind, and awakening the spirit.

The inspiration of Sun Tao

Our retreat is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, inspired by the mission of the Tao Fellowship, which is “Love Humanity, Love the Earth.”

Tao Fellowship was established in 1998 by Ilchi Lee, to promote the spirit of Tao as universal principles of harmonious living and a peaceful world. Specifically, it is the Sun Tao (仙道) Korean Taoist tradition, with its 10,000-year history, that we follow. Sun (仙) is the combination of human (人) and mountain (山), meaning a human being living in harmony with nature. The principles and practices of Sun Tao are available for all retreat guests to learn as part of their stay with us; we seek interfaith friendship, and believe that peace and harmony can be realized through our connection with the Earth – without which, humanity cannot survive. Indeed, “Mago” is the ancient Korean name for “Mother Earth.” Our common goal is the sustainability of Earth and all of its inhabitants, now and for future generations.

      Meditation workshop

    I didn't know what to expect. Barracks? Up at 4 in the morning? Vegetarian food and no wine? I believe that while I participated in the workshop, much was so new and different to my life thus far. But now that I have returned home, although I am still stumbling through the concepts and practices, I see and feel the value of my 3 days in the Red Rocks. The staff and team were lovely, knowledgeable people. Their genuine desire to share ways in which they have found personal peace was palpable. My eyes were definitely opened. I desire to grow in the teachings. I hope to return some day as well.

      Magical and healing retreat center!

    Sedona Mago was the perfect setting for training and retreat. The grounds are beautifully kept and thoughtfully designed to promote introspection and healing. My room was comfortable and very clean. The food was OUTSTANDING. the common areas were very well maintained. All needs and comforts were considered and attended to.

      One of the most authentic retreat centers

    If you're looking for a place to truly connect with nature, experience energy, and brighten your spirit, Sedona Mago Retreat is unbeatable. The facilities and accommodations are simple and well cared for- nothing fancy, but nothing too fanciful either. The surrounding landscape is truly a treasure- off the beaten path (the drive in seems long, but it's worth it), with some of the best overlooked red-rock panoramas in the area. The natural beauty is enhanced by the feeling that you are staying in a place that is practical as well as pristine. The welcome center is well-stocked with a variety of items, from clothing to crystals to snacks for midnight munchies. A 24 hour lounge allows computer access for those who need to check email the old fashioned way, and the dining hall serves 3 high quality buffet style meals regularly each day. Whatever program you're attending, Sedona Mago Retreat will surely enhance the value of your experience.

      A perfect time at the retreat

    My husband and I recently returned from a 3 day stay at the retreat. We were there between programs, so were there to spend a relaxing few days. Everything was better than we had anticipated. The grounds are gorgeous, as is the landscape that surrounds you here. The atmosphere is peaceful and inspiring; we loved walking the meditation trail around the lake. We were very happy with our room. The food was amazing, we loved every meal, they were healthy, perfectly prepared gourmet meals, some of the best food I've had anywhere. I definitely hope to return and highly recommend to others.

    The staff was warm and helpful, especially Forest. I had to cancel a night and he was very understanding and waived the fee. The food was incredible! It made me want to go vegetarian. I felt great after 3 days of healthy eating. Now the land, so peaceful with waterfalls, twisted trees and big beautiful nature placed flat red rocks. The retreat center was perfect and my retreat with Linda Star Wolf was amazing. Thank you and I'll be back. Debbie
