About us

Join us for an extraordinary, heart-felt journey into enhanced connection and empowerment through Deep Ecology & Yoga.
The Work That Reconnects is a transformational body of work that includes theories and practices enabling us to reconnect to our own true nature, the web of life, and to our human community. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world empowers us to act on behalf of Earth.


We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time - it is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare.  It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. It is a time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.


During this 4-day residential retreat we will be touching our innermost responses to the condition of our world and reconnecting with our sense of wonder for the web of life.  Strengthened by generations past and encouraged by those yet to come, we can tap our own deep awareness and creativity to chart a course for taking action in a way that brings us alive.

We will use:

  • experiential practices
  • poetry and song
  • ritual and movement
  • and silence

to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects.

The four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe.

We will support our journey by participating in the yogic practices at Anahata Yoga Retreat. This will include:

•Hatha yoga classes

•Guided meditations to work with the emotions

•Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation)

•Kirtan (singing mantras to music)

•Havan (ancient Vedic fire ceremony)

Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed and Arne Naess this retreat will empower you to act on behalf of Earth with clarity, love and direction.

No previous experience in Yoga or Deep Ecology necessary. Add-on option for Facilitators Hui. See our website for full details.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
