About us

Do you desire to have a more regular meditation practice? Are there times

when your practice seems to take a back seat amongst the busy-ness of

everyday life? We all seek to live wisely and with loving-kindness and we

all experience fear, anger, confusion, grasping, body pain and mental

agitation. We want to shine out with love, but we lose ourselves in the

darkness and feel cut off from the essence of ourselves. During this retreat

there will be instruction in Vipassana (Insight) Meditation, heart-centered

meditations, dharma talks, chanting from various traditions, optional yoga,

and individual meetings when requested. Dharma discussion will focus on

the application of these practices in our daily lives helping our Inner Light to

remain accessible, especially in times of difficulty and challenge.


Venue Highlights

Heartwood’s facilities include a historic thirty-room Victorian-era mansion, and additional thirty adjoining courtyard rooms. Three meditation halls and a commercial kitchen are designed to support short-term and long-term retreats, conferences, and workshops. Quiet spaces indoors and out invite contemplation and conversation. Our goal is to nurture all aspects of one’s being.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
 

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.
