      Massive heart opening

    My experience in the Holos retreat was life changing. I feel so grateful for the deep guidance and safe loving container that held me through healing waves and allowed me to soften the shields around my heart. I feel more fully opened to life and positive and excited about my future and more confident about my place in the whole as I can now deeply feel and recognize the wholeness and beauty in me. After the Holos retreat, I feel more mental clarity and relaxed in my nervous system as I had just gone through a lot of transition and change shock in the months before the retreat. I now feel grounded and more connected to others and know that the container Ian-Michael and Samantha held allowed for deeper connection to source, my true essence and the others who were there with me. It was such a beautiful, ceremonial experience that I will never forget. I’m so glad I took the leap of faith and gave myself this gift. - Eden

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
