About This Event

Awakening Joy! Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga in the North Georgia mountains at Elohee Retreat Center.

Come away for a winter retreat in beautiful surroundings where you’ll have a chance to slow down, dive deep into your warm-hearted, peaceful self and come away feeling blissfully rested and spiritually inspired.

Come to remember the joyful and open heart you once called home as a child. You will find it at the quiet and still place at the center of your being where your true self resides – a realm full of gentle knowing, deep peace, and true happiness.  The Dalai Lama says that, “Joy and Happiness are our birthright.” These tender-hearted qualities have simply become hidden by fears, insecurities and habits that we will gently begin to let go of in our time together.

Our inherent joy is not something we create, it is already here!  On our retreat, we will travel through the doorways of mind, body and spirit to create the conditions for these beautiful heart-mind states to naturally arise and be nurtured. We will calm our minds with meditation and time in nature; we will soothe our bodies with restorative Yoga, delicious meals and relaxation and we will journey through the layers of our being to our spiritual depths with Yoga Nidra.

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.
