About us

What if health issues, from acne to injuries to cancer, aren't random, meaningless events but a somatic language that holds clues to existential questions such as, What is my purpose? How can I change the way I approach life to create patterns of health and vitality? During this nourishing weekend, you can learn the rudiments of that somatic language, and go home with new tools to care for yourself — body and soul. Transformative Medicine is a holistic model created by Ruediger Dahlke that offers insight into some of the psycho-spiritual influences on your health. In this paradigm, illness is not an enemy but a messenger with clues about how to transform yourself. A side effect of the process may or may not be the end of the illness. This workshop is for you if you suffer from nagging health issues, need new insight on a serious issue, want to prevent illness, or long for a rich new lens through which to see your life's journey. This workshop is not designed to cure specific ailments. After registration, participants will receive materials including a comprehensive individual intake to fill out that focuses on psycho-spiritual and physical history. Dr. Dahlke and his apprentices will review these in detail and support you in addressing your personal situation as desired.

Recommended reading: Dahlke, The Healing Power of Illness; Ford, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

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.
