About us

This workshop explores sacred technology that can dissolve energetic blocks and awaken empowering energies. We’ll open up a pathway for new insights through initiatory experiences from both Eastern mysticism and Western shamanic healing. During this workshop, Silvia will offer healing sessions using sound, voice, and Indian ragas that combine with Sally’s meditative and mythopoetic teachings that spring from goddess-based practice. We’ll chant medicine melodies, practice mindful movement, meditate with deity qualities, and deepen our relationships with devotional sound. Through contemplative visualization and subtle touch, we’ll deepen awareness of the inner body. During this week, you’ll receive mantra initiations and have the opportunity to discover both your personal and transpersonal connections to goddesses like Saraswati (sacred inspiration and flow), Durga (warrior strength), Lalita (fully empowered sacred sexuality), and Chinnamasta (pure Awareness).

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.
