About This Center

HERE AND NOW (pol. “TU I TERAZ”) Personal and Spiritual Development Center was founded in order to create a space supporting the discovery of the Inner Path. Space that will inspire, support and allow personal and spiritual development, as well as creative meetings with interesting people (by means of workshops, lectures and festivals).
We guarantee you tranquility, quietness, privacy, untouched, wild nature, comfort of work and homely atmosphere. We offer you the opportunity for personal and spiritual development, rest, contact with your body and emotions, as well as meetings with interesting, creative people.
“HERE AND NOW” Personal and Spiritual Development Center in Nowe Kawkowo is a beautiful, enchanting place situated amid picturesque forests and lakes of Warmian-Masurian Province, 25km from the city of Olsztyn. The Center is located far from any buildings, on a 10ha glade, among forest-covered hills. The whole forest-meadow area encompasses 40ha of fenced, private property and is an excellent place for walks, trips (on foot, as well as on bikes) and other activities. There are a few lakes nearby (Szałstry, Bałąg, Morąg, Skolity – the nearest one is located 3 kilometers from the Center). Also, the “Węgajty” rustic theatre has its headquarters not far off.


The Center offers comfortable accommodation in originally finished rooms (2-, 3- and 4-person rooms, with or without bathrooms), in a spacious attic, in forest cottage located 100 meters from the main complex and in pavilion tents (for 2-3 and 4 persons) on a nearby glade.

Why Retreat?

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

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

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.
