Travel to and within India

As this is the age of personal travel made easy, we have found that our retreat participants are often coming from other parts of India, where they are traveling before hand or after continuing their travels. For that reason, we are unable to get involved in your airfare questions except to make recommendations (see below).

Why Retreat?

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

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate

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.
