You can feel the sacredness of this place even before you reach the last turn into the campus I only spent a days there and I feel that I am forever changed because of the short interactions I had with the dedicated people there being at the LOTUS (Light of Truth Universal Shrine) and also looking down on it from the high hill above it gave me an incredible sense of connection with the Divine. I highly recommend this place to anyone of any faith. — Laura Baker Anderle

You can tell this is truly a spiritual community because of the way the people take care of you and take care of the ashram.  From the person who checks you in, to the swami that leads the meditation, or the teachers in the many yoga classes,  love and peacefulness abounds. You can see it on everyone’s face.  It doesn’t take long before you, too, are reconnected with that which is your own true nature—that same love and peacefulness. — Micheal and Kathy Murphy

 

Truth is One, Paths are Many. ~Sri Swami Satchidananda, Yogaville Founder

Why Retreat?

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

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate
 

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.
