Bring powerful healing energy into your body and mind by recharging in the beautiful natural environment and unique hidden vortexes of Sedona Mago Center.

The Water Up Fire Down Healing Retreat is an opportunity for you to experience the basics of self-healing through the core principle of health, Water Up Fire Down, away from the distractions of everyday life. The beautiful environment and natural vortex energy of Sedona Mago Center provide an ideal setting to experience self-healing and connect with Nature and yourself.

About the Location

Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat provides the perfect place for experiencing mind-body harmonization in Nature. Set in the high desert of Northern Arizona, the Sedona Mago campus is remote enough to allow for quiet solitude, and the clear dark night sky reveals millions of stars. You may occasionally notice local animals and birds that are not commonly seen, attracted by Mago Lake. This area is known worldwide for its spectacular red rock geologic formations, which are believed to have healing energy properties according to the original Native American inhabitants.
(This retreat takes place entirely inside of Sedona Mago Center at a leisurely pace, without a trip to Sedona town.)

What is “Water Up Fire Down”?

This retreat is based on one of the founding principles of regaining and maintaining good health, documented more than 2500 years ago in East Asia and also recognized by the early healers of Western medicine: “Keep your head cool and your belly warm.” A full accounting of the history and benefits of this principle can be found in the book “Water Up Fire Down” by New York Times best-selling author and founder of Body & Brain, Ilchi Lee. We recommend reading this book before you attend, but there’s nothing quite like experiencing the practice of Water Up Fire Down with an expert guide.

What You’ll Experience

Our trainers will guide you through the basics of Water Up Fire Down energy self-healing in indoor and outdoor sessions, including the main meditation places and vortices within Sedona Mago Center, to help you deeply refresh and recharge your body and mind.

This retreat is not just about learning new techniques or skills, but a time for experiencing the power of deep breathing and guided meditation to restore your healthy Water Up Fire Down energy balance. Once you’ve experienced how much better you can feel, you’ll want to keep practicing to support your long-term wellness.

  • How to practice walking meditation in Nature
