About This Center

TATVA is an international Anglo-Indian organisation that focuses on emotional awareness and wellness; by combining psychotherapy and multifaceted self exploration with the creative arts, inclusive experiential practices, travel, nature therapy, social justice and cultural immersion.

We are one of a handful of international residential psychotherapy and recovery communities in the world managed by mental health professionals. Our mission is to move towards a more collaborative, integrated and multidisciplinary mental health practice in the Indian subcontinent. 

We engage with individuals who wish to deepen their understanding of their relationship with themselves, others and the world. TATVA’s conception is rooted in providing a safe, supportive and professional space for our clients to openly explore their lives and truly reflect on what gives them meaning and purpose.

We work with an international team of creative professionals, and dedicate ourselves to working with all aspects of our clients’ life and experiences that are important to them – while supporting and facilitating their self-development and growth

Venue Highlights

TATVA's base and small residential facility is in Goa, India. Our location and atmosphere encompasses and compliments our therapeutic approaches and ideals. Engagement with Goa's vibrant and creative culture is utilised to create a reflective and enquiring atmosphere; within a supportive environment. Goa’s intimacy, quietude and space gives each one of our clients a chance to create a unique experience for themselves based on what they seek. Whether staying in our residential facility or using our day programme, clients will have the chance to not only explore Goa but also join us on our trips to predetermined locations; which are off the usual tourists radar and facilitate the process of introspection, self examination, change and empowerment.


We have three double bedrooms (air conditioned with balconies) and a self sustaining attic (non AC with private bathroom) as part of our retreat. The residents have an option of a single or double sharing room with shared bathrooms. All linen and toiletries are provided. We accept individual guests and couples. There is a shaded mezzanine, garden, drawing room/studio space, study, recreation room, sun room and a communal kitchen which can be used by all residents.

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.
