The focus of my retreat was on dealing with grief. Zen Wellness provided me with a fresh perspective and a holistic approach to wellness body, mind and spirituality. I look forward to using the tools they provided me to now live my life with joy and achieve my higher purpose. - Dr. Alyshah Kaba

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.
