About This Center

Every Hawaiian retreat we hold is one on one and tailored specifically to meet your needs. We have developed a graceful system that expands out your retreat to be a full and complete experience. We will help you walk through and develop your own retreat. During the retreat, our personal attention means the actual retreat evolves as you learn. When the retreat is finished, we are still accessible, to guide you as you apply the lessons smoothly into your life. Our retreats flow as a life changing process and are far more than just taking one week off from your life. We are here to help you connect fully into a more complete and graceful life

      Relationship and Healing Retreat

    I recently came back from a Personal Tao retreat with both Casey & Julie. I attended the retreat with my husband. The experience was invaluable and we will hold the teachings with us forever. This personal retreat came at a time in my life where I needed it most. Casey & Julie are wonderful listeners, provide teachings catered to a person’s specific needs (including chronic physical pain) while gently remaining in tune with the emotional needs of the participant. I found not only has the retreat helped strengthen us as a couple, it also strengthened me as an individual. The Personal Tao retreat has allowed me to explore my spirituality and allow for great personal growth. I would recommend a retreat with Casey & Julie to anyone who needs guidance when at a fork in the road, for person(s) looking to expand their spirituality, or guidance at any point in life.

      Personally Tailored Retreat on the Island of fHawaii

    Casey and Julie have a wonderful ability to identify the areas of your life that might be hindering you from living more fully and in balance. Their personal retreats are tailored to your own needs. What I have liked most about their approach is that it is so very real, practical, flexible and non-judgmental. In their retreats they blend perfectly different spiritual practices with good, solid, practical advice on life. The Island of Hawaii is a place of inspiration and awe and serves as a perfect setting for their retreats.

      Practical enrichment of Life!

    Casey and Julie not only introduced a mind-blowingly wide range of specialists Taoist tools in abc format for beginners, they tailor-made the work tools most relevant to each of our essences, in play format, with the stunning backdrop of Big Island. Taoism which touches the heart and flows! Enlightening and enriching on many levels and incorporable! Happy to pause and stay forever!

I find that when we really love, accept, and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works. It’s as if little miracles are everywhere..because they are! Louis Hay

Why Retreat?

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

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.
