About This Center

If you're a Jewish woman of any age, Bais Chana is the crash course on the soul of Judaism that you've been looking for. We're the adult Jewish summer camp you missed out on. We're your deep dive into Judaism. It's time to find out more, isn't it?

What we like to talk about at Bais Chana:

What is a soul? Are women better? If G-d is good, why is there evil in the world? What's the key to happiness? How do I do Shabbat? Is Judaism spiritual? What is love? What do dreams mean? Should I use the mikvah? How can I become a better person? Where does Torah come from? What does G-d want from us? How do I know if what I believe is true? Can I learn to pray? Why do bad things happen to good people? What's kosher? Does G-d really care what we do? How do I know I'm marrying the right person? Do Jews believe in fate?

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.
