About us

Peace and joy are the first sensations to greet you when you arrive at Ananda Laurelwood.

Deep peace is a palpable energy, making it possible to experience the joy within our beings. These retreats are designed to introduce you to a deep experience of inner peace.

Silence is recognized by many of the world’s spiritual traditions as a powerful tool to help you attain and maintain happiness in the midst of your hectic daily life.

The Guided Silent Retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators. It is based on universal spiritual principals and honors the many diverse traditions that practice meditation as a path to inner peace.

Elements of the Guided Silent Retreat include:

  • Learning a simple but profound technique of meditation
  • Group meditations to support your individual practice
  • Gentle yoga to relax and release tension
  • Qigong (chi kung) to stimulate and balance your life energy
  • Personal time for reading, contemplation and journaling
  • Practicing mindfulness in action – eating, walking, self-care
  • Nourishing vegetarian meals
  • Optional massage and spiritual counseling available by appointment

If you would like a longer stay, there’s a place on the registration form to either stay extra nights or come early for an individual retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
