    I’ve been to Sedona Mago Retreat center last Summer. It was very
    beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful healing
    garden with a lake, in the middle of desert! I enjoyed walking and meditating around the lake. Their food was very yummy and fresh too. Some were directly from their farm.

I am so grateful to have chances to visit there often to recover my peaceful self again and again. If you have not visited there, I recommend for you to visit there once in your life and feel the embracing beauty of mother nature. Thank you!

  • Peter Marsh

    If you haven’t been there…you should go.

  • Tonya

    This is one of the most heavenly places on earth and where one can feel incredibly connected to nature. Keep in mind you will be in the desert and at a slight altitude so stay hydrated and layer (big temperature drops at night). On a clear evening (about 320 – 330 of those here per year), sometimes even when the moon is out, one can see the milky way and probably more stars than you can see just about anywhere on land. The rooms (casitas) are lovely and well kept, the buffet is awesome, the staff friendly and the most beautiful desert views I’ve ever seen.

  • Moon

    It is a great place to visit Sedona Mago Retreat. All around it is a beautiful place, I enjoyed visiting the lake. The food was very delicious, fresh, & healthy. I like to go to this place and will be back again.

  • Yelena Krasnov

    This is my favorite place, a piece of heaven on the earth.

  • Adahae Guadagni

    Really excellent retreat center in the red rocks of Sedona! The food is organic vegetarian and the rooms are simple and cozy. It has really amazing energy and many spiritual groups and leaders use the facility so theres always something cool happening. I had some profound meditative experiences here and I can’t wait to go back.
