‘Healing’ is etymologically related to the word ‘whole.’ So what is the ‘wholeness’ toward which healing retreats supposedly lead?

It might mean no longer being haunted by old traumas. It might mean being of sound mind. It might mean having perfect fitness. It might mean integrating our self-image with our understanding of reality. It might mean feeling connected to the processes of the natural world.

There are as many visions of wholeness as there are human beings. Wholeness is an archetypal image—we cannot pin it down. But at the very least, the individual who chases wholeness is a player in the beautiful cosmic game.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
