Healing Retreat

‘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:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
