About us

Deep in our bodies, where our truth burns the brightest, we know we cannot be free, we cannot be of service, and we cannot truly come alive if we aren’t consciously connected to our soul. Soul Saturation is an intimate, dynamic, and radically real experience of our soul within a group setting. While most religions and New Age and modern spiritual practices focus on spirit, emphasizing the importance of transcendence, enlightenment, and Oneness, this retreat focuses on soul and celebrates the importance of immanence, embodiment, and our distinct divine identity.

While our soul has many different aspects, and all are significant and sacred, the part of our soul we specifically invoke on this retreat is what we might call our Soul with a capital “S,” or our True Self, or our inner Beloved. This is the part of us that is eternal and connected to All That Is, but also is extraordinarily unique and eagerly seeks to incarnate through us and as us.

Using fiery meditation, meaningful ritual, intuitive journaling, provocative dialogue, and conscious movement, we will allow our souls to guide us towards authentic experiences and expressions of life and love.

Please bring a journal, an open mind, and a sense of humor.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
