I had an amazing experience working with Sherri in my Reiki level 1 training. Her passion for Reiki is evident in her teaching. She exudes reiki! We talked about not just practicing reiki, but BEING REIKI, which resonated with me so strongly. I'm excited to take what I learned and using it in my own practice and carrying this with me for the rest of my life. What a beautiful thing. Thank you Sherri! Lauren ​Sherri is by far the most genuine, approachable, and grounded Reiki practitioner and teacher that I have ever met. The experience of training with Sherri was groundbreaking for me on a personal level and subsequently on a professional level. She practices what she preaches; she walks the walk of a Reiki practitioner without the "holier

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda
 

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.
