About us

Learn How to Produce Successful International Retreats and Events!

We work with the Top Teachers and Practitioners in the world, to help them share their Wisdom and Transform people’s lives, by training them on how to lead the highest quality events, retreats, masterminds!  We remove all the guessing & headaches around logistics, budgeting and other intricacies. We also help show you how to market your retreats consciously and effectively to sell out!

Join us at our incredible Experience Lab in Costa Rica! 


I’m quite passionate in working with top teachers, practitioners, healers and leaders to help share their Wisdom and Transform people’s lives through retreats and events.

I’ve noticed how empowering it is for them to earn a great living while traveling to incredible places – reaching communities worldwide and enjoying the ride!

I’ve also seen how hard it is, after working with countless healers and teachers, for them to handle logistics, budgeting, marketing and other event related intricacies. I love taking those headaches away. I share with you all of my systems, learnings, spreadsheets and other tools to help make your event worry free.

When they get to focus on teaching and not have to worry about how to plan a retreat or how to fill it, the magic really happens and they actually enjoy the process.

I’ve learned from a lot of successes as well as mistakes over the past 15 years and I love sharing that wisdom  and seeing teachers I work with thrive. Whether a 20 person retreat or a 120 person conference or even a 7000 person festival – there’s a lot of fundamentals that once you know them make it a lot easier!

Come Study with us in a beautiful Costa Rican Retreat Center, that I designed as a perfect laboratory to teach this subject! We’ve been doing amazing retreats at VIDA for years! It is one of the unique reasons why we are so good at teaching this subject – because we’ve owned our own location and got to know the ins and outs.

“I knew I wanted to create a retreat, but didn’t know where to start. Finding Edward and his Retreat Lab Class was a God send.  Edward is incredibly knowledgable, has amazing experience in the space and most importantly he is passionate about what he is doing and WHY he is doing it.  His energy and support offer inspiration for everyone to follow their dream, and his experience and expertise provide you the templates and systems to show you how to make your dream come true.

I highly recommend anyone wanting to be involved in the retreat/event business in any capacity to work with Edward.”

                         –Susan Wise (Yoga & Polo Instructor)

“Eternally Grateful! There is no way that I could have pulled this retreat off without the expertise, support and mentoring of Edward Zaydelman.  I went from a conversation to a decision to produce an event.The event was a massive success. Lives changed. Mission accomplished.”

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
