How complex is this spinning world of ours? It’s complex enough that we have a veritable buffet of spiritual traditions on display at Retreat Guru! But you can only spend so much time window-shopping before you must finally take a leap. Spiritual traditions have diverse models of development, yet the goal of all of them is increased love and wisdom. Shamanism is a path of connecting to the outer world as pregnant with meaning. The Buddhist traditions train the mind to recognize the purity of reality. The yoga traditions bring the human organism into alignment with the cosmos. All of these are subtle variations on a single theme, which can be neatly summed up in this way: reality is love. You can’t buy a spiritual path, but you can benefit from a good map of the terrain and, ideally, an experienced guide. Booking a retreat—which means choosing from among the many traditions, practices, and teachers that abound on Retreat Guru—is just a first step.

Why Retreat?

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

My beautiful wife! Jupiter

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.
