2. Whirling

Whirling is a way of sufi meditation which has been practiced for over 800 years. İts a way to explore a unique way of  finding the door to your inner journey. İn the afternoon there will be lessons on whiling. Besides this we will be talking about the sufi philosophy and sufi music. You will have a chance to try out classical sufi instruments like the Turkish reed flute and the bender and more. Soo if you are playing an interments you are welcome to bring it with you:)

3. Meshk

Meshk is when all the dervishes come together and make divine sufi music, they play, sing and whirl together.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola
 

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.
