"The Revitalizing Detox Retreat was very healing! My physical body was cleansed and so was my mind. Also, the energy here is so peaceful and healing. Coming to Sedona Mago Retreat helps one to relax and find inner peace." ~Pam Broyles, Las Vegas, NV
"I came to the Revitalizing Detox Retreat hoping to cleanse and start new with my physical body. What I received was much, much more. I came away with a clean, fresh body, mind, spirit and renewed energy. I also found that these practices changed me and I will carry them forward in my life to gain a completeness I never thought possible. I am eternally grateful for what I experienced on my retreat. Thank you, Juniper." ~Louis, Flagstaff, AZ
"This was a profoundly powerful and healing retreat. Perfect for anyone wanting to rebalance health, spirituality, energy and nutrition. One of the most useful and gracious retreats I have ever done." ~Mary Susan, San Francisco CA
"For many years I have been looking for a detox program. A friend told me about the Revitalizing Detox Retreat at Sedona Mago Retreat. I had cancer and the chemotherapy left my body so toxic and weak. I lost a lot of strength. I felt helpless, heavy and very unhealthy. The Revitalizing Detox retreat was exactly what I needed, I experienced deep cleansing through the methods that were shown. The instructor, Juniper was very knowledgeable about many topics discussed. The retreat covered the importance of detoxing out bodies and how important proper nutrition is. I was given tips to take home and the experience was life changing for me. The swelling and inflammation in my body decreased. I feel lighter and fresh and more energized." ~Stephanie, Las Vegas NV
"This is my 2nd retreat trip to Mago. Although I have been practicing Tao yoga at the center in Chandler, I kept falling into a pattern of bad habits that kept me from making progress in my spiritual journey. When I came to this retreat I was not well physically, with low energy. I felt a total transformation after this Detox retreat. It almost feels like a miracle and I am very grateful for Juniper and my fellow participants for sharing and caring and making this possible. My real testimony was the sunset meditation where after many bowing meditation, I was able to sit and meditate pain free and feel the healing energy from heaven! I am eternally grateful for helping me take the bold step into my spiritual journey." With Love & Peace ~ Kris Murali, Phoenix, AZ
"I arrived a mess - waring for decades to control my alcoholism, I had no power on my own before this retreat. At the fact of facing my fears, worries, anxiety and depression… Juniper and Vicki understood and immediately started working with compassion and understanding. I felt welcome. At home, At ease. The trainers were tough on exercise and it felt great. The food and diet recommendations, as well as the liver cleanse left me feeling alert and clean. The emotional and spiritual sessions were enlightening - I can feel energy again. I would recommend to anyone struggling… seeking enlightenment - someone who doesn't subscribe to rehab or AA methods. I feel the program has cleansed my body and mind, and gave me the tools to confront life with confidence and live my life with intent and see my true potential. Inspiring for those in despair" ~"Peace", Reno, NV
"This is the second time that I have taken the Revitalizing Detox Retreat. The retreat enables me to not only clear the physical body from toxins but to clear blockages and toxins from my emotional and spiritual body. If you feel burdened by excess body weight, depressions, negative emotions, a lack of energy or any other condition that seems to inhibit your moving forward", I highly recommend the Revitalizing Detox Retreat. You will emerge with greater energy and a stronger conviction to take care of yourself, to love others and to respect the Earth." ~Leslie, Oceanside, CA
"I greatly enjoyed having the guidance and support of the trainers. Being in a small group with lots of personalized attention made this an excellent program. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to get started on a path of improving health." ~B.J.
I did not realize the level of toxicity in our environment and in me until I did this program. It is challenging but very beneficial. Also so beneficial to detox Mother Earth by changing our habits. Master Juniper is an exceptionally gifted trainer.

"I found the retreat to be wonderfully holistic. It exceeded my expectations. Juniper is a wealth of knowledge and share her wisdom in a very warm, passionate manner. I was pleasantly surprised that the detox programme incorporated so much spirituality and also focused on healing. I really enjoyed every aspect and felt I learned and grew so much this last week. We were blessed to have such a incredible group of people to share the experience with. I feel lighter, clearer, stronger and more peaceful." With much love, light and appreciation! ~Kelly, London, UK
"This retreat was amazing! I work really hard and needed the right balance of relaxation and detoxing. I knew my body needed a reboot. I appreciate that the retreat focused on detoxing with a spiritual, physical and emotional emphasis. The retreat allowed us to go deeper into exploring our relationship with food. I also got to cultivate a new habit around mindful eating. How powerful!!! By the time I left I found that I was more aware of when I felt full. I could also taste and appreciate the food more and I was also given practical nutrition pointers. Also, a personalized reading by Master Juniper and N.D. Vicki were very supportive, caring and loving. They pushed you past your comfort zone with the yoga activities but with very supportive energy. It was the right push. I got to do some healing and it feels good. I know what I learned will stick even if it takes me time, that's how much I released. The environment really supports this kind of detox as well. It was perfect." ~DN, NY
“This is the second time I have chosen the Detox program with Master Juniper at Sedona Mago Retreat. The program has led me to love and respect my body, mind and soul more than ever before. The cleansing and exercises using my body and meditation to go deep inside myself was the best. Now I am going home to my daily life and will keep my journey alive, as live my life. I am ready for the challenge. And I am planning to return in six months.” ~MaryJo, IL
"When I enrolled, I had no idea what to expect... I was simply looking for healing of my soul. Well, this program, is a nutshell, is about awareness and enlightenment regarding myself, others and the world. What an eye opening experience. Master Juniper and Master C were awesome beyond words, filled with love and light. If I needed them to hold my hand, they did. All I have to say is, I am a new human who learned to love herself. Is my soul healed? I am on a journey and Master J & C helped me to find that path. I truly love you both!" ~C. Small, central MT
“What you learn about yourself, what you learn about life, is amazing. There aren’t words to explain. The connections that you make with the people in your group are priceless as well. I think that whether you had exposure to meditation and detoxification, or if you never have like me, you will so benefit from something like this. It is actually a lot of fun as well, thank you.” ~Sarah C
"I feel really lucky to meet Juniper, trainer of the program. I expected more casual and conventional (I mean less human touch) retreat focused on losing weight and changing healthy life. The retreat was much more deep and spiritual. Thanks to the professional and human touched dedicated service of Juniper. I learned much more than changing health life. She gave us advice customized to each of us. I felt clearly that she wished our happiness from the bottom of her heart. She helped me to push my life ahead. I really am satisfied with my decision to come here. I also appreciate Susan. She is very kind, friendly, attends all of us very, very well. I can’t stop to say to them “thank you”. I highly recommend the people to take this retreat. You can learn how to grow as human being." ~Kaori Sato, Japan
“I read about the Revitalizing Detox and decided that might be a good thing to do just to get my body in a little better shape, and to get some of my health back. But what I discovered being in the program was that it wasn’t just about the physical release. It was also about an emotional and a spiritual release; letting go of some of the blockages that keep us from functioning in the fullness of our being. The instructor Juniper Yang has been so incredible in her modeling of what it is to really be present, doing the various exercises. We do the Tao exercises that have a bit of Qi-gong, if anyone is familiar with that, and also some yoga. More than that, it’s a real deep connection with one’s inner self.” ~Frances, Santa Fe, NM
The Revitalizing Detox Retreat is a comprehensive program that reaches deep. I felt a much needed decompression from stresses and habits of my daily life and routine. The environment is supportive. Master Juniper is accomplished as our energy healer. I am down 8 lbs from July 3. Feeling a whole lot calmer. My bp was high even on my meds. Resting heart rate down a lot. Lesson: I can heal myself!!! You can, too. Continuing to detox. ~Dorothy B, Phoenix, AZ

"It was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had inspite of going through the Detox process. At first when I arrived at Mago Retreat I felt a sense of calmness, of being alive and as the days went by one can feel the energy that emanates around you and eventually inside of you. An energy that brings you one with nature, one with yourself, one with your inner strength and feeling of calm. It was worth every bit of my time and money. I hope more people take advantage of this opportunity." ~Harish, PhD Chicago Il
