Discover the secrets to teasing dynamic color out of the beautiful landscapes surrounding our home in France with Perigord Retreats. Students are invited to work in the medium of their choice. Nina is excited to share her love of color and landscape with students at all levels!

We will be visiting the most exciting locations on offer in the Dordogne and Lot regions of France.

Why Retreat?

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

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

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.
