About Us

Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat, located in the Red Rocks of Arizona, was created to share the timeless principles and spiritual practices of ancient wisdom and tradition of Sun Tao. Combined with modern teachings of energy healing and personal development, retreats at Sedona Mago provide paths and environments for your holistic healing, self realization—empowering you to become a shepherd of Mother Earth. 

The name Mago is from an ancient Asian language, meaning “Mother of All.” It represents the unconditional love and spirit of Mother Earth we, as humanity, have for her. This sets the direction for why and how we run Sedona Mago: to love humanity and the Earth. To fulfill this mission, we provide heart-centered leadership retreats and personal development workshops; wellness and natural healing programs, all designed to help you become the fullest expression of your true self. 

Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat is owned and operated by Tao Fellowship, a 501(c)(3) non denominational “non-profit” organization.

Mindfulness Programs + Centers

We offer a variety of mindful and spiritual-based programs designed to awaken your abilities to connect, grow, and heal  from within. Our programs teach self-transformation and enlightenment from ancient principles for you to uncover the power of your True Self. 

Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat delivers the teachings and benefits of mindfulness throughout the United States. Through these classes, you’ll learn how to experience a well-rounded, fully-centered life using a combination of ancient Asian wisdom, energy healing, and personal development to solve daily, modern-day concerns. 

Mago’s Healing Campus

All 173-acres of Sedona Mago were lovingly developed to hold space for your healing, spiritual elevation, and physical  restoration. We strongly believe in the intrinsic value of connecting to nature as a way to recharge. We invite you to take a  hike along our beautiful pathways lined with sage and sparkling crystal powders from the surrounding ancient healing red rocks. Go for a stroll along one of our three labyrinths, stop by one of our many sacred energy vortexes, or visit our 120 Steps for a moment of reflection and connection. Sit and meditate on the banks of our soothing lake surrounded by a healing garden. Relax inside one of our 95 minimalist-designed casitas for a soothing night’s rest and quiet reflection. Whether alone or in a group, you’ll find opportunities to breathe, heal and simply be at Mago. 

Our Sustainability

Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat is a certified sustainable business. We hear and embrace the heartbeat of  our land and are committed to keeping it strong. To do this, we maintain a core mission to honor and sustain the Earth and all of its inhabitants for now and future generations. Our gray water system purifies the wastewater from our casitas and training rooms so it can be reused for nourishing 2,000 juniper trees, herbs and plants on our campus. We compost meals served in our dining hall to help fertilize our gardens and grounds. These efforts effectively help us reduce our carbon footprint and maintain our profound commitment to stay in harmony with the surrounding community of the Sedona desert.


Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat—501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, inspired by the mission of the Tao Fellowship—has been a destination for spiritual healing and transformation for over 20  years. Mago is an ancient Korean word that means “Mother Earth.” Our central mission is “to love  humanity and the Earth.”

We are inspired by the Sun Tao (仙 道) Korean Taoist tradition, with its 10,000-year history. Sun (仙) is the combination of human (⼈) and  mountain (⼭), meaning a human being living in harmony with nature. We believe that peace and harmony can be realized,  no matter one’s faith, through our connection to the earth.


Our friendly staff and online membership community provide a safe and welcoming space for your spiritual and personal development. We also provide local outreach to senior and community centers throughout the Cottonwood area*. Our patrons help us in supporting the extended community of veterans, under-served demographics, and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), an organization helping families of fallen soldiers.  

At Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat, where guests return 80-90% for additional visits, staff and guests will consistently find a community of like-minded people ready to support the transformative growth of all who visit.
