About us

Description

From the context of ecological design for healthy humans and healthy food systems, this workshop will explore the foundations of each Ayurveda and Agroforestry, then utilize Ayurvedic wisdom to learn how to design and tend place-based edible ecosystems.

Using elemental approaches to maximize health and balance, this workshop focus on rejuvenation and explore plants from the dual lenses of Ayurveda and agroforestry that can benefit people and the land.

From the constitution of landscapes to permaculture plant guilds, we will spend our time observing and engaging with the orchard ecosystem.  We will explore pruning through the lens of the gunas as it pertains to plant growth.

Basic plant propagation, including grafting, will also be covered so that students gain skills to create in- ground nurseries of abundance.  The role of Yoga and sattvic living as a whole will be addressed as they pertain to permaculture regenerative agriculture.

Topics covered:

  • – Integrated agroforestry from a permaculture approach, including plant guilds and whole systems design
  • – Elemental perspectives on landscapes
  • – Doshas and their higher forms
  • – Tree selection – with attention to Ayurvedic diet
  • – Gunas as they relate to plant growth
  • – Pruning and grafting fruit trees
  • – Ayurvedic herbal medicine

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
 

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.
