About us


The Permaculture Service Day is an opportunity for anyone who is interested in Permaculture to come serve at the Yoga Farm and learn through hands-on activities. There will be a special Permaculture lecture and workshop offered to participants as part of the program. All who attend will have the opportunity to engage in 4 hours of selfless hands-on service and enjoy the daily schedule with a free Satsang (meditation and chanting), Yoga class, Permaculture lecture, and two organic vegetarian meals.

Why Retreat?

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

Connect with nature and remember my spiritual self is timeless Zoe

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.
