The Barefoot Blackbird

About us

Within us all is a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth, and intelligence that can be cultivated through meditation, applying ancient principles, and bringing attention to our soul, with love in our daily life, and share it as it radiates quietly to our families, friends, communities, and our society as a whole. 

Daily sessions are combined with excursions along the magic of the Scenic Pacific coast and the Santa Lucia Mountains on the north coast of Big Sur for natural awakening meditations, including emotional awareness, discerning your intentions, consulting your intuition, and more.

Whether you chose a private retreat or attend one of the workshop retreats you can expect to meet people who are all interested in learning to act and speak from love instead of fear, aligning personality with soul, and gaining more authentic power in your lives.

Creating authentic power is not a religion, philosophy, theory, or dogma. It is a practice and a way of being in and of the natural world.

Each session is relational, experiential, and grounded in everyday applications. Our leaders are skilled in responding to the needs of the group and of the moment.

While the overall flow and content of the retreat is planned, the focus will move like an ebb and flow to follow the energy's path.

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
