About us

This year we’re very happy to have Shantala joining us for our annual New Years Kirtan Retreat. Their deep and soulful Kirtans are very well known and loved among their thousands of devoted followers. The spiritual power that comes with one of their Kirtan retreats is even more deeply moving.

Join us for this New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day to relax, renew, and re-open your heart to begin the New Year.  Our Laurelwood retreat center offers comfortable lodging, great vegetarian meals, yoga classes, meditation temples, acres of land to walk on, and a deeply peaceful vibration.

Starting Monday the 31st, with a convenient early afternoon check in and finishing Tuesday January 1st with a late lunch, come and immerse yourself in a deep spiritual environment and enjoy several hours of chanting New Years Eve, a midnight fire ceremony,  and a two hour New Years day morning workshop with Shantala, two yoga classes, great vegetarian food, and the uplifting company of other like minded souls.   Below is the full schedule:

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
