About This Event

Feldenkrais for Life: Improving your Movement (Jennifer Herzog)

Ages 18+

Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. – noon

$300 + $10 materials fee

We will cover the fundamental principles of the Feldenkrais approach and do two Awareness Through Movement lessons each day.

Each lesson has a theme that supports important movement ideas. Each day we will progress to finish with a challenging movement sequence so each participant can apply the ideas beyond the workshop (modifications are used to adapt to all abilities). Practically, this means making functional movements in fun and novel sequences. We always include floor work – for example: coming to sit and stand by rolling, exploring themes around walking, reaching and balancing – while taking time each day to focus briefly on anatomy and the healthy functioning of hips, shoulders, spine, knees and feet. Some working principles are:

Applied mindfulness and self-reflection – through moving.

Working with the novelty your brain needs to learn & ad

Regaining posture that supports your health.

Reclaiming your inner resilience and applying new tools for healthier movement.

Verbally guided gentle movements anyone can do, to be applied in any context.

Birth, Death and Resurrection of Jesus (Donald Schmidt)

Ages 18+

Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – noon

$100 + $15 materials fee

We all know that Jesus existed – but how did he get here, how did he die, and how did we experience his resurrection? The Bible tells us lots of stories, some of which even disagree with each other. Does that mean we shouldn’t pay attention to them? No – we must, and we must peel back the tradition piled on top of these stories to explore what they might really say to us. In the process of it all, we’ll have some fun!

NEW!! Children’s Program

Ages 3 – 14

Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – noon


Children’s Program will fill your child’s mornings with adventure, fun, friendship and time to connect with the Spirit all around. Whether your child like’s being with a lot of people, or to be a bit quieter with just a few friends, we will create space for you to be you. A younger stream for children 3-6 years, and an older stream for children 7-14 years.

      Family Reunion 2018.

    Our family from far and wide, had a reunion the second week of July 2018 at the Naramata Centre at Naramata BC with some of us camping and the rest of us in the motel style accommodations. We all had a great experience and a good time in an ideal setting! The staff and the accommodations were great! We plan to go back again.

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
