About us

$500 for the course plus accommodations.

The tuition is offered in a sliding scale upon request. Please contact us for more information.

During this 2 week course we will be building an understanding towards resilience and abundance utilizing permaculture theories and techniques. Permaculture guides our way towards understanding whole system designs that unite the individual with nature and society. Yoga in Sanskrit, literally means Union. Together, permaculture and yoga present holistic solutions which enable us to begin to live in balance with our environment and our relationships, while at the same time addressing the world’s most pressing issues with clarity and creativity.

The Permaculture Course will be taught by several experienced Permaculture Designers in the Northeast area. An incredible opportunity to learn from several perspectives.

The course is a unique opportunity to care for yourself, what we call Zone 00, and then bring the questions and ideas you learn in these two weeks into your home (Zone 1) and ripple it out to your community! This course is not just for Gardeners, foodies, and foresters… IT IS FOR EVERYONE! We like the saying: ” IF YOU EAT, YOU ARE IN!” So if you eat, join us for these 2 weeks at the Ranch to learn how Yoga and permaculture can help us heal ourselves and our planet.

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
