About us

Our Creative Residency program offers one-month experiences of living in harmony within a residential contemplative community while giving you the space to engage in your own creative work. You’ll find a place of serenity and inspiration for writing, painting, song writing, poetry, and other creative projects.

While you are welcome to enter into the daily schedule of the resident community, including meditation, meal times, work projects, and community events, you can tailor your stay to focus entirely on your creative projects.

In this program, you’ll:

  • Provide a one-hour presentation to the community and guests about your creative project.
  • Observe the community’s practices including periods of silence, quiet hours, and other policies.
  • Participate in kitchen cleanup after meals alongside the resident community.

Optional activities available to you:

  • Engage in the resident community’s daily meditation schedule.
  • Participate in weekly spiritual direction with a resident spiritual director.
  • Participate in special programs, events, and retreats that are open to community members without fee (subject to contract requirements with facilitators, open events during your stay will be identified).

Multiple month residencies may be available, subject to cabin availability.  Partial residencies of two to three weeks are also available at a pro-rated cost.

Application Process

In order to participate in this program, you’ll undergo an application process and interview to explore if this is a fit for your needs and our community.

Why Retreat?

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

Desire to learn more meditation practices, spend more time in spiritual community. Heather

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.
