This Thanksgiving, rather than over-indulging, why not lose some excess weight from your body, stressful thoughts from mind, and pain or resentments from your heart? Seize the fantastic opportunity to be grateful for life and shed things that no longer serve you.  Putting a twist on our signature Be Light Retreat…  this Be Light & Thankful helps shift our focus to appreciation, connect with other people, make new friends and for some people, celebrate the American Tradition of Thanksgiving (for many it’s their first one!).

We believe our feelings are indications of our mind’s alignment with our heart.  When we are feeling LOVE and APPRECIATION, we are with our Heart.  It just takes practice.  No one is in our heads thinking our thoughts for us.  We get to CHOOSE.

This Mind, Body, & Spirit Retreat is created to help you get the weight off! Be Light retreat has an emphasis on healthy living to help shed pounds physically and figuratively. We don’t believe in “diets.” We believe in living a lifestyle that nourishes and supports you for your optimal wellness. Weight loss will occur naturally as you tune into your own power source and nature. Burn calories while you’re having fun, and reaching within to be your highest self!

Daily exercises, yoga, and workshops are all designed to help you let go of the extra weight that’s on your mind, your heart, and your body—all of which are connected. Your body will love the natural detoxifying waters of the region’s underground cenotes as well as being soothed with natural Mayan clay. The hot coals of the Temazcal ceremony will sweat out impurities like it never before. Experience the mystical healing energies of Tulum!

Spend a week with us in paradise and you’ll take away new tools to live a healthier life physically, emotionally, and mentally. “Be Light & Thankful”!

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
