Important Information for Women’s Sedona Spiritual Retreat« Back to Trip Overview
The Sedona Mago Retreat Center’s dining staff prepares health-conscious, pesco-vegetarian meals that include fish, eggs and dairy. Their food is naturally prepared and features seasonal fruits and vegetables that come straight from their organic garden. They support the surrounding community by using locally-grown produce as much as possible. Dining service is available for all three meals, served in buffet style.

How to get to Sedona:
The Sedona Mago Retreat is located 16 miles southwest of Sedona, Arizona, between Sedona and Cottonwood. It is 3 hours away from the Grand Canyon, 2 hours north of Phoenix and 1 hour south of Flagstaff. Directions from Phoenix: Take I-17 North to the Cottonwood Exit (#287). Turn left and follow Hwy 260 toward Cottonwood for 12 miles to the intersection of Hwy. 89A. Turn right going toward Sedona. Go through two traffic lights. When you see 761 or Bill Gray Rd sign turn left on Bill Gray Rd. The first building on the right is the Mago Information Center (if you are taking a shuttle from Phoenix it will drop you off here and then the center can drive you in to the center for a small charge). Bill Gray Road is an unpaved Forest Service Road. Follow this dirt road for approximately 10.8 miles until you see the sign for Ilchi Road on your right side. Turn left at this sign, cross the cattle guard, and go approximately 1,000 feet to the Sedona Mago Retreat’s main gated entrance.
Regarding flights: Please fly into Phoenix early enough to be able to arrive at the Center by 4:00pm the latest that way we can have our opening ceremony by 5:00pm. If everyone ends up coming in later due to flight schedules we will simply start our ceremony later! Figure that it will take you approximately 2.5 hours to drive from Phoenix to the center. (The van companies are: Ace Express and Extra Mile.) Going home leave enough time for that drive plus 2 hours lead time at the airport. You can share rides if you get your flight info to us – we can see who is arriving and when and match you up if you like.

Keep in Mind:
The actual schedule of spiritual teachings and what we will be doing day to day is not published so we can be in the moment. Every day will be a magical experience for all of us, so keep your heart and mind open to the experience life brings us. Due to the remote areas we are traveling to, weather, bad roads and other unseen obstacles may cause us to make changes in our itinerary.
On this spiritual journey our intent is to create sacred space where we can learn and share in group for the purpose of deepening our spiritual connections. The power of our teachings (please make sure you align with the group leader’s philosophy) and ceremonies comes from our combined energy and if group process does not interest you, then this trip would not be your best choice.
