About This Event

Esther de Waal writes, “being committed to God is not about being nice. It is about being real,” and Mary Daly says that we get courage by “couraging,” just as we learn to swim by swimming. These calls to be our most authentic selves involve finding the “sweet spot” in which we live as no more—and no less—than who we really are. Becoming real and courageous requires exploring questions like these: How do we ensure that we are neither over-doing, nor under-doing our life’s work? What necessary risks enable us to live into our true potential and the fullness of our voices? Equally, how do we find comfort with our limitations rather than fighting against them? In this retreat we will practice couraging by taking stock of our best gifts and coming home to our honest limitations because conversations like these help us find our way into being real.

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.
