This months DJ will be Dubconscious

Jake Dub will be playing a sprawling tapestry woven with dub, reggae, house, mellow dubstep, downtempo and trip hop.

Cynthia Fawcett is a Kaslo based artist who will be playing native flute for the invocation.

Attend just the dance or come to the dance and stay afterwards for a vegetarian brunch and enjoy the spa at the Sentinel as part of the day retreat package. Spend the night or make it a longer retreat by staying for a few in one of the Sentinel’s beautiful new rooms. (reservation or advance ticket purchase required).

Thank you also in advance to our volunteers and to Braden East of Intrinsic Energy Electrical Solutions for extra sound support.

Why Retreat?

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

To be in my highest self. Josh

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.
