Retreat partcipants can move into a deeply contemplative experience in our large grounds and surrounding walks.  Nature abounds and provides a nurturing and supportive presence to your process.

We have charming bed and breakfast style rooms with shared bathrooms.  There is also space for people to camp.

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.
