      So much love.

    Spending an evening receiving a sound healing from Luz Maria and her partner Martin was an exquisite experience. The prayer intentions, the spirits that sang through her, the scents and the tenderness of the healing were beyond words. I wish everybody who longed for peace could experience her miraculous work. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

      Most amazing experience!

    I cannot say enough about the impeccable Luz Maria. What an amazing medicine woman! I have been lucky enough to experience her healing ceremonies twice and both times I was immersed in the most amazing healing and loving energy I have ever felt. I recommend her to anybody looking for powerful, authentic, nurturing and loving healing. Martin brought amazing music and song to the experience to make the entire thing and event of a lifetime. I wholeheartedly recommend them.

      You will be blessed!

    Luzma has a big heart that she openly shares. She radiates pure light and brings this love, light and divine joy into her ceremonies. Being in her presence is healing and liberating. She is a gentle being and a gifted healer.

    I have known Luzma for many years (and other Medicine and Shamans all over the world). Luzma is one of the most INCREDIBLE Shamans/Medicine woman I have ever met! Her authenticity and love for Pachamama and ALL living beings flows through her and her ceremonies in such a magical way. She holds each person with so much love and care that you honestly feel you are being held by The Mother herself! I cannot recommend being with her enough! Don't lose this opportunity of a lifetime - to be all that you were meant to be in service of life itself! With profound love and deepest respect Sand

      A Gift from the Mother

    Journeying with Luz Maria is like receiving the Divine Nectar at its source. Truly, what more is there to say? Such gifts leave me deeply nourished, healed and filled with so much loving kindness, i am renewed and awakened on deeper and deeper levels, another petal of the lotus unfurled receiving more love and more light. What a Divine Blessing! Thank you Luz Maria!

      Beautiful experience with impeccable integrity

    I have worked twice with Luz Maira and Martin from Nuna Ayni and have beautiful and deeply awakening experiences both times. I can not speak highly enough about them. The medicine is of very high quality and the way they hold space is impeccable. The healing ceremonies that Luz Maria offers during them are amazing. I have suggested them to many people and will continue to do so.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
