About us

This program revolves around exploring human potential — how to reach your own and activate other people in doing the same. This offering is intended for anyone seeking a deeper sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging in their life and those who feel called to activate the potential in others. Our journey will take us through the three faces of Spirit as articulated by philosopher and theoretical psychologist Ken Wilber. This journey deepens our relationships with the spirit in ourselves, others, and in the systems we inhabit. We will play with modalities that support us in accessing the intelligence of mind, body, spirit, and shadow.

Vipin Thekk will draw on his training as an Integral Life Coach to help students design experiential journeys at the individual and collective levels. Practices will focus on listening deeply into what life is inviting us to birth through mindfulness, self-reflection, journaling, time in nature, meditation, kundalini yoga, integral theory and Theory U. Vipin will be joined by guest teacher Angie Thurston to help us explore the DNA of deep community. We will develop and implement prototypes to explore our passions and channel the insights from the experiences to create an inspiring and meaningful road map for our unfolding lives — to discover the sacred within and around us. By the end of our time together, students will have greater clarity on their passions and purpose in life, a mindset of curiosity, and trust in the unfolding journeys of their lives.

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.
