Mago Garden is settled on sacred land on Sedona's energy vortexes. It is a quiet and beautiful place to reconnect with nature by walking the healing lake and garden in the middle of the Red Rocks and a beautiful view of the hills. There is healthy, freshly grown foods and fresh eggs for breakfast as well as gluten-free and vegan options upon request. The rooms are simple and all you need. There are no phones in the rooms but there is a community room with computer access. There are healing retreats (for singles, groups, and more), yoga and guided meditation and holistic healers on site for you to plan a stay! I love to visit at least once or more times a year! The weather can change so bring layers and a bathing suit to swim in the pool or enjoy the hot tub!

The accommodations were very nice (very clean, quiet, comfortable beds, full bath, decent bedside reading lights, fridge available in room, nice linens, no tv). Disappointed that the pool/hot tub was not available (see picture), but there are multiple man-made pools, lakes and waterfalls to sit by. Plenty of beautifully cultivated walking trails with blossoming trees, shrubs, etc. The food was plentiful and varied. If you like sugar/meat you need to bring your own. Coffee is instant only, lots of teas, lovely juices and lots of fresh fruit and berries available during meal time. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful skies 24/7. The 10 mile stretch of bumpy, muddy, dirt road you will travel to access the property presents a quandary -- hard on shocks, and if renting, know that car rental companies may charge you extra for "off road" use, so read the rental fine print. Very nice destination for a business/educational retreat. No obvious need to go into town unless you need a city hit or want to go sightseeing. Bring reading material. Very relaxing.

I traveled to the Mago Retreat Center in Sedona, looking for spiritual renewal and refreshment. Our daily life can become so busy that self-care goes on the back burner. As a result, our bodies take in the stress and tension from high powered daily schedules that leave no room for self-reflection. The Mago Center is just that place that gives us permission to put our cell phones and busy schedules away, encouraging us to focus on creating a new mental and emotional state that brings a revitalized spirit as well. The dining facility prepares healthy meals and the staff is gracious and welcoming in their efforts at encouraging the importance of the mind, body, spirit connection. I highly recommend this retreat center for refreshing your overall state of mind. The guided programs assist in bringing clarity and mindfulness to our everyday lives.

Sedona Mago is a vast property placed far out in the Sedona desert amongst the beautiful red rocks and mountain scenery.

This is spiritually charged environment, ran by the Tao followers of Iichi Lee. Which is Korean based and has its own style of mindful practices.

Finding materials or itinerary to your program will be difficult as everyone is asked not to share the practices. We won’t use the word SECRET, but perhaps sacred. The intent is to keep biases minimal and minds open... there is practices of energy healing and motion. Which is advertised on their site. The idea of working on the deepest self (which can be intense and exhausting) is a core belief here.

Food is vegetarian or pescatarian, honestly I think it was one of the best parts. I was never wanting for meat, but perhaps a cocktail or two would’ve been nice. It is a alcohol free environment.

Housing is minimalist and eco minded. You will have a place to sleep and the basics, but not pampering style that a nice hotel would offer.

The drive is mildly wash board and honestly not that bad.

There is plenty to do in a slower pace kind of way, vortexes, pool, walking trails, meditation gardens, classes, and Sedona and neighboring towns are close enough it’s practical.

Perfect setting and amenities for a relaxing and inspiring retreat experience. The setting could not possibly be more beautiful, the food is plentiful and delicious...vegetarian, pescatarian and vegan options, minimal sugar but caffeinated coffee. I did not take part in any of the experiences offered as part of the community's spiritual practices, but the environment itself provided all that was necessary.

I just returned from a week of training at Sedona Mago Retreat. The training was called Hwan Bup which means "Bright Law". I feel totally refreshed, renewed and an awareness of personal growth. I sense a feeling of acceptance, calmness and peace.
The atmosphere was beautiful , the energy was revitilizing and the instructors were caring and able to deliver the principles combined with physical practice that led me to have an experience of the the principles not just information.
The accommodations were simple but fit into the landscape beautifully. The meals were exceptional.
I would encourage anyone to look into a training that would benefit them.

I stayed in Mago Retreat Center August 16-21 2023 for a special training.
Every time I come here feels like I am coming home.
The retreat has several energy vortexes. In the morning I go to Healing Garden to recharge and refresh.
Food is amazing - always fresh and prepared with love and care.
Can’t wait to go back in December.

Sedona Mago felt like home to me. I experienced so much energy and love. The Love Heals retreat has enabled me to grow even more. It is truly a beautiful, healing place. The food is just delicious and the casitas are comfortable and enough. I can’t wait to return

I haven't read many of the reviews on here (just the ones on the side) and so I do want to address two points - the one about cults and the one about no TV.

(No TV are you freaking kidding me - that's heaven!! and the whole point of going somewhere like this - as with limited WiFi... it's in the title - "retreat"! The US is for me the worst place to go to get away from the media - a gas station I stopped at on the way had a TV at the pump, three TVs inside and a radio). It is like drowning in other people's thoughts. On a more compassionate note, it is unnerving when you come from so much noise and drama to be alone with your thoughts and feelings - I get it. But one thing I did when I came back from my trip (it wasn't just this retreat it was also other wonderful places I went to on my journey) was throw out my TV and tell my family that, okay you want to watch TV fine, but I'll be in the other room reading or writing a book. I do occasionally watch specific films and programmes, but I'm often shocked when the programme ends at the violence, aggression and rubbish that comes on as advertising or the next programme. (As I live in the UK it also took me about 3 months to convince the TV licensing people that no I actually do not have a TV.)

On the cult question. There are two groups of people here - the people who own and run the retreat centre and whoever is hosting your particular retreat (it could be the same group if it is an in-house programme).

When I arrived I did not enjoy the tour of the place because it was taken by a guy from the centre itself who was using it, not as an orientation, but as an opportunity to expound on his religion (and the ethos of the centre - which is that religion). I also didn't like the guy (I believe we are all connected and love each other unconditionally but I didn't like being around him or listening to his brand of spirituality) so I excused myself. I also didn't like the form I signed which said I was there to learn about the religion (I wasn't) but I signed it because I trusted the guys who were doing our retreat.

Once we got into our retreat it was fantastic! We had a variety of teachers so yes, some were more or less on my wave length or taught what I was needing, but I absolutely did all the right sessions for me and the space was exactly what I needed to help me work through what I was learning - the clear skies and millions of stars, the red rocks, the deer and other animals running round the place, the space and even the hot tub (which I was in every chance I got!) We even did a fire walk which then lead us down to the healing lake - man, that was awesome - and then waterfalls and humming birds and desert flowers - I didn't feel the vortexes but I do believe "you are the vortex" and I had a life changing trip.

(The retreat I was on was The Gathering of The Shamans which is repeated this April - I highly recommend it!)

Other points, rooms are simple but comfortable, showers good, walls are paper thin so please do try to respect the quiet hours (there's a great 24 hour lounge for tea, WiFi and just getting away from your room mate or the people next door - or if you need the loo).

Food is outstanding. As a retreat centre respecting vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free there was a host of options and I was spoilt for choice (best food I've had in the States aside from Hawaii in a long time).

I want to say something that may sound judgmental about behaviour, but I hope it just helps you get the best retreat. We are not sheep and we are not trees, but it surprised me, as this was my first proper retreat, how many people just went along with the crowd. I was constantly ducking into the hot tub, walking off by myself and it struck me how many people were afraid to do their own thing (everyone was in the hot tub with me by the end). So please, please, take what you need from the retreat, leave the orientation if it's too religious, leave a session or a yoga class if it doesn't feel right (heck leave the retreat if you really feel it's the right thing to do!), don't go to the shrine if you don't want to, listen to your heart and you will find yourself and you will find your bliss - there's plenty of space for it here.

Pros
If you want to be away from civilization and completely isolated then this is the place for you.
People are friendly but weird.
Food is just Ok.
Very quiet depending on your neighbors, walls are like paper so you can hear everything even weird moans (and yes in the middle of my afternoon nap).
Views are amazing.
The small lake was the only part I liked.
Cons
It's a 25min drive on dirt road away from the city, fun and good restaurants.
It's not actually in Sedona it's more towards Cottonwood.
It has a cult vibe.
They have recovery programs so you will see shady people around, keep your wallet safe cus someone got their card stolen.

Two questions-Are children welcome? And can people swim in the lake located on hotel grounds?
Answer from MarshallMaue
Toronto, Canada70 contributions34 helpful votes
Hi! Sedona Mago is a spiritual retreat centre, so it would be up to you to decide if children would be a good fit. Normally, I'd say "No", but perhaps your kids are mature enough to appreciate the place. As for swimming in the "pond", NO - but there is a swimming pool (sans lifeguard) on the property.
Answer from Mago_Retreat
Sedona, Arizona
Thank you for your questions! Yes, you are more than welcome to take photos of the grounds. We do have snacks available in the gift shop. No, our swimming pool is not heated. No, we do not offer art therapy. Yes, you can schedule a yoga session at any time, and no we do not offer massages. We hope that was helpful. :)

I couldn't tell you for sure, although I believe the classic is one of the original buildings...which I was not a fan of, but some like. I would recommend asking for one of the newer rooms which are between the main reception building all the way down to the dining room. Call them, they are very helpful... The place is epic....take fruit for the horses, they love apples and pears.
