About us

When we treat others with respect and caring, it calls forth the best in them. Imagine the impact of treating ourselves the same way. As research now proves, when we practice care and kindness for ourselves, it enables us to be more caring, patient and kind with others. In this session, through large and small group discussion, contemplation, and experiential exercises, participants will explore the reasons it is both fair and important to be on our own side. We will look at the obstacles to being good to ourselves, consider God’s love as the source of self-compassion, and take away a personal vow to respond to self-criticism with care.

Why Retreat?

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

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

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.
