About This Center

Aaron & Alissa are best friends and teachers experiencing a Conscious Partnership with one another.

These lovers share one home, two businesses, six children and plenty of experience weaving Tantra into every complicated aspect of life.

They share a common understanding of the power of relationship as a ground for conscious awakening and in breaking through the walls of past conditioning, healing toxic shame, unlocking vital creative powers.

During their retreats, you can expect a mixture of traditional Yoga & Tantra, breathwork, masculinity/femininity explorations, trauma & shame awareness teachings, fire ceremonies, chanting, Qigong, sexuality studies, and more.

In Caoba we specialise in balanced food. We also offer natural teas prepared with herbs from Caoba, especially recommended to recharge energies and treat physical pain. For dinner we always serve vegetarian dishes.

We have a set menu, therefore it is very important for us to know in advance if there are any allergies or dietary restrictions we should know about. Let us know your needs ahead of time and we will accommodate.


Caoba is located 10 kms away from Santa Marta, Colombia, with 8 kms of dirt road. As we are in the mountains, we don't have an address as such, but there is only one road leading to us. IMPORTANT: during rainy season we recommend to arrive and leave Caoba before midday.

To get to us is only possible by 4wd or Moto taxi. Our retreats include transportation to and from the Simon Bolivar International Airport.

Why Retreat?

To drop deep into the practices and connect with my true nature. Rubin

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.
