About us

This program is currently full.

Few things compare with the dappled beauty of our northern lakes in the bright green summer. This calmness and serenity rest on a great depth of being, an unselfconscious state of grace, in which all things have their place. Apparent simplicity hides complexity, and absorbing the clarity of this environment can help us find the still point within.

Join us for a week long canoe, meditation and art retreat in the Essex Chain of Lakes. This interconnected series of lakes provides a protected yet remote environment to bring the concentration of zazen into daily life. Short initial canoe carries provide access to the majority of lakes that allow lakeside camping. The practical skills of canoe strokes, rescues and environmental awareness needed for safe trip planning will be introduced and developed throughout the trip. Daily paddling will be integrated with zazen and art practice.

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.
