About This Event

The deep play of creativity and healing through Dance, Drumming and Nature. 

Rhythm, movement and meditation are tools we will develop and explore with rigour, humour and devotion to delve deeply into our most divine state where self-knowledge and healing can occur. Participants will take home embodying energizing practices and experience touchstones of awareness, that will enrich their artistic expression no matter what medium they choose to work in.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to spend time with Odette and Ron while they share their experience and knowledge of Yoga, Dance, Drumming and Mantra.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda
 

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.
