About This Center

About the facilitators

Melanie and Oshea Luja are authors, educators, holistic life-purpose coaches, and award-winning poets. They are wellness practitioners in the fields of spirituality, soul work, health, balance, and Reiki. Melanie and Oshea established their own holistic center in 2010, called Vibrations, in Inglewood, CA, where they facilitated workshops and offered over 75 different types of healing teas, and a full line of natural hair and skin-care products they produce called Subtle Tiyes. They have since opened up The Balance Portal, a private practice in Los Angeles, CA, where they expanded their product line and now teach workshops on life-purpose alignment and soul work.

Love is the highest vibration, it exudes itself from itself: similar to the sun and whomever experience such an occurrence is Truly Alive! - Oshea & Melani

Why Retreat?

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

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

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.
