Day 1: Welcome to Sedona & Experience the Present
Introduction to Meditation
You will begin your retreat by exploring the energy within. The serenity of Sedona Mago Retreat provides a sanctuary to explore your inner landscape. Today’s meditations and exercises will help you to ground yourself in the present moment.
This introductory session will provide a framework for your transformative weekend. You will experience mindful breathing, gratitude, energy exercises and specific movements that will anchor your awareness in the present moment and ground your meditation experience.
We will also help you to contemplate deeply on these meditation topics such as: Who am I? What is my true self? How do I want to live my life?
Onsite Vortex Energy Meditation Part 1
There are no ringing cell phones and no honking horns. Instead, all that you hear are rippling birdsongs and gentle breezes that cradle you in a cocoon of serenity and envelop you with the fragrant mist of solitude. In this quietude, you are able to look within and reflect on what it is you want to let go of, what you wish to bring into your life, and how to listen to your true voice.
You will learn the five basic minds for a fulfilling meditation practice. They work like spiritual fingers for your sacred journey within.
Day 2: Attune to the Land & Experience Deeper Connection
Onsite Vortex Energy Meditation Part 2
You will continue to visit onsite vortexes and by connecting to the unique energy of each location, you will take in the healing energy that you need for transformation. While in nature and with nature you will discover that you are nature and will experience the energy of the red rocks, trees, water and sky of Sedona Mago Retreat.
Chakra Healing Exercises
Chakras are power spots in our bodies, just as vortexes are the power spots of the Earth. Chakra activation and purification will give your meditation a tangible texture and deepen its creative aspects. Our simple, yet unique method will allow you to open, activate, and balance all your chakras. Now you are not only in peace, you are peace.
Healing Sound Journey in Nature
You will become one with the musical harmony of the universe as you explore your consciousness with healing vibrations that transport you deep within, or to unexplored regions of your soul.
Spiritual Movie Night & Group Discussion
Inspire yourself with an enlightening documentary.
Evening Silent Meditation
In the evening, we’ll shut out the outside distractions and do a silent meditation. This can be a turning point in your spiritual journey. As you shift from looking “Outside” to looking “Inside” you’ll discover a deeper aspect of your being.
Day 3: Wrapping Up Your Experience
You will continue to open to the love and support nature provides; reflecting on what you have gained, and planning how your life will be different as a result. The final session ends before lunch.
Early Morning Session: Sunrise Meditation
It’s a transformative experience that words can hardly express when you observe the sun slowly peeking up over the horizon amid the stunning red rocks of Sedona. The play of light and shadow is magnificent, and your heart and soul are touched as you become part of a scene that has played out over and over again throughout the millennia of Earth’s existence. It’s one of the most sacred moments of the Tao Meditation Retreat.
Morning Session: How to Take It All Back Home
Now is the time to reflect on what has unfolded for you, how you have responded and most importantly, how to take it all back home. You have become more mindful of your thoughts, emotions, and actions. You smile more and look forward to what the moment has to offer. Now it’s time to return to your place in the world with more confidence and a renewed passion for your life.
One Important Realization
After three powerful days of Tao Meditation Weekend you will realize that the real sacred space is in your soul, the part of you that is eternal and unchanging.
If you feel that your heart has been touched in Sedona, it is because your perfect immutable soul has awakened.
Your task on your spiritual quest is to uncover that part of yourself that is eternal and to let it shine in the world. By observing your conscious mind, you will discover that you are a being with limitless possibilities. Sedona’s sacred spaces are simply a reflection of that which already lies inside of you. Here in Sedona, Mother Earth magically embraces you to enter the sacred place inside your own heart.
