Transition into the New Year in a splendid city of canals and cathedrals. 

The New Year is the ideal time to get clear on what you want to welcome into your life and set your intention for the upcoming year. Riding the flow of empowering yoga and workshops, this retreat is designed to take you through a journey of transformation.

Who is the retreat for
The retreat is for those who seek healing and spiritual teaching. This teaching starts from the moment in which you express interest in joining this retreat.

The shaman is a spiritual teacher, a representative from the spiritual world. He will teach you whatever it is necessary and by whatever means necessary the lessons your soul require.
This retreat is not something you buy, like a fridge from Walmart, and you dictate the terms of how things will be done during and prior to the retreat. The methods are mostly non conventional and lack of human logic and are purely driven by the Divine inspiration the shaman receives.
If you do not treat the shaman with respect and humbleness there is a great chance you will not get on with the shaman and you will waste an opportunity to learn and heal.
Most people suffer from anxiety and impatience, lack of love and tolerance. This does not give yo the right to rush things or demand quicker service or a 'bigger dose'. Each step is a preparation for the next one, we have the tools to heal you.
The process of the healing and teaching is on a cosmic time and order, such as planets go around the Sun and the Sun goes around other bigger stars there is an order and constant movement. This takes a very long time so do not expect any instant results.

Patience, compassion, humbleness are the qualities necessary to access the spiritual world with shaman's help. If you do not posses those the shaman will teach you and provide you with tools to start learning.
If you don't behave according to the shaman's guidelines and instruction you will be asked to leave the retreat space without any money back.

If you are looking for a DMT experience or trying to experience something different like a parachute jump this retreat is not for you. This retreat is also not for you if you used weed / grass in the last 6 months. You need to undergo a special cleanse before you join a ceremony.

In short if you are serious, disciplined enough to follow the shamans instruction and are able with an open heart to the retreat to learn and receive whatever you are ready to receive than send us your short application.

Please apply only if you can comfortably pay for the retreat.
No discounts, nor free participation is offered.
There are of course cheaper retreats than ours, we are asking a fair price for what we offer.
We work exclusively in places and venues of special beauty and abundance and that carry a special Earth, Cosmic and Divine energies, so you can incorporate that during your stay and 'take it with you'. We also work exclusively with small groups of carefully selected serious students/participants.

To apply to participate please send a quick note about yourself, your spiritual practice to-date and the motivation behind doing this retreat. Also enclose a photo of yourself where your eyes are visible and/or link your facebook account.
The shaman will decide whether he is interested in inviting you to the retreat and you will have a personal interview with the shaman via skype before you join the retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
