About us

ChristmasCome join us for our 2018 New Year’s retreat with new opportunities and possibilities that can open us up in this time of transition and most especially guide us into transformation. Every new year is an opportunity to reflect upon who we are, what we’ve experienced, and what we want to accomplish. Through our meditation practices, yoga, journaling, sharing nature, dance and reflection, we can find our way into the new year grounded and joyful.

Paramhansa Yogananda observed, “The minutes are more important than the years.” But as the pace of life approaches the speed of light, we arrive at the end of each day too exhausted to reflect on what we have experienced and how much we have learned.

Recapture life’s most precious moments and take some time before year’s end to appreciate how much we’ve grown and what blessings we have been given.

Winter Snow Wonderland LW Jan 2017.


The last days of December, between Christmas and the New Year, can be a time of discovering our innate wisdom, new insights and inner strength for our next adventures in spiritual evolution in 2018.

The program culminates on New Year’s Eve with the 108 repetitions of the Maharityanjaya Mantra as we welcome with a calm and open heart the blessings and opportunities that await us in 2018.


You’ll enjoy:

  • Meditation classes and guided meditations
  • Yoga sessions twice a day
  • Sharing nature hikes
  • Movie and popcorn
  • Guided exercises for review of past year with reflection, including journaling and soul collage
  • Sacred Dance, movement and Qigong


“As I learn the lessons that life teaches me, I grow toward ever-greater joy and freedom.”

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
