We’ll explore two primary foundations: the intuitive skills of improvisation and the architecture of music. Experience both non-conventional and conventional uses of the human voice in the co-creation of authentic musical expressions of the moment. There are no wrong notes and there’s nothing to memorize, just breathe and sing…ahh. Previous participants say: “A capella improvisation with David Hatfield takes you to unforeseen destinations of hilarity, weirdness, extraordinary harmony, and transcendence. This gifted facilitator can coax music out of your very pores.”

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl

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.
