About us

Transform your Life!   

Have you ever longed to go to India, to indulge in Aurvedic Wellness treatments & massage to bring you Holistic Health, but were hesitant because you thought it had to be rustic?  You can relax into this Wellness Journey, because I have delved into the magic of India 4 times, leading retreats that awaken the senses and enliven the mind, while elevating your spirituality.

You may find India to be the most culturally & spiritually adventurous country in the world.  While you are enjoying the luxurious comforts of one of the safest countries in the world, you can be Immersed in two of the major components which make India so unique; their deep spirituality & holistic wellness.   

Holistic Health! In Pondicherry, with its renowned center for Ayurveda Holistic Wellness, we can enhance our health with "4 hand" massages  & other natural curatives.  The Ayurvedic doctors will check your pulse & examine your tongue to teach you the best foods & activities for your constitution.  Self-care leads to Self-Compassion, which leads to JOY!  Envision being immersed in the culture & spirituality of India!

 Explore The Divine Community :  In the 1960's gurus developed Auroville for you and all sacred seekers, as a sanctuary for everyone, regardless of race or creed who wants to live in harmony. This city was founded  with the ultimate goal of becoming fully self-sufficient, growing their own food and making their own products.

This “City of Harmony” is now home to 2,500 residents from 52 nations. We will not be staying overnight in Auroville; however, it is so close to Pondicherry, you may choose to visit more than once during your retreat.

The Matrimandir is gold plated on the outside, with pure white marble within. It was built on the teachings of Sacred Geometry including the inside spiral up to the top place of meditation & prayer. It is not a tourist destination, rather it is reserved for spiritual seekers of wisdom through divine guidance. I was honored during my 4th retreat to India, to be accepted as a spiritual "tour guide", who is allowed to bring you within its inner chambers for this amazing experience. 

Have you been dreaming of such a retreat in exotic India?  Would you like to join us in March to make it your reality? Some Americans are looking for an exotic adventure, but are hesitant, due to the unique cultural norms of the country they desire to visit.  They feel stuck in a small space, when their heart wants more. That is why I started leading retreats in the Spiritual Capitals of the World

India is my absolute favorite for its friendly people, Ayurveda Healings and deep spirituality, which is why this is my 5th retreat to this blessed land.

I will be your American guide to supplement the knowledgeable and professional Indian guides. They all speak fluent English and are properly polite & professional.  Are you looking for divine inspiration?

My first trip to India gave me life changing wisdom. My spirituality went into warp-drive, while my emotions relaxed into a Peace-Filled Life. I have been a divinely guided energy healer & teacher for over 10 years, so in addition to guiding you through India, I will be providing healing energies, meditations & spiritual channelings, attuned to your personal paths.

You can enjoy India & Transform Your Life, just like Rene' stated after her retreat with Jacqui “…I am forever appreciative and grateful to Jacqui for providing this

eye-opening, spiritually enhancing and fun journey. Her spiritual

guidance along the journey transformed a vacation into my spiritual transformation."

I invite You to Discover the Culture, Spirituality & Elegance of India. 

Registration is your Commitment to Your Heart & Soul.

.“...I got to love her during our time in India living the journey!... WoW! What an  experience. If you've ever quested to go to India, ​ Jacqui Simpson ​ is your  gal. Not kidding. It's all good…the 7 Ladies of Vegas in India!” ~Valery  Brown Godino

“…One of my favorite memories of India, is walking in
Pondicherry after dinner. The town closes seaside road, for
a family friendly "boardwalk" atmosphere with toys, games

welcoming, fun and yummy experience...”

Menu/Cuisine

India is well noted for its vegetarian cuisine & unique flavors. I invite you to enjoy them to the fullest.
However, someday you want a taste of home. So, I have arranged for each meal to have a variety of Indian and Western dishes for your pleasure. The only food not available in most of India is beef. You will be well nourished, whatever your food preferences.

A full breakfast of Eastern & Western delights

A delicious dinner, where you choose from a full menu

Accommodations

Some people dream of international travel in exotic lands, but hesitate, because they aren’t familiar with the hotels, their amenities and the food. For your vacation-style spiritual retreat, I have chosen some of the “Crown Jewels” of India, each receiving awards for their rooms, service, amenities and delicious food.

Southern India has a noticeably different vibration than the North. The spirituality is a bit more subtle, while your wellness, takes a more predominate role in your activities.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
 

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.
