About This Event

Benedict emphasized the vital practices of simplicity and moderation because he recognized the difficulties of aligning our everyday rhythms with our spiritual lives. Choosing simplicity and moderation in a culture of excess involves deliberate choices and intentional practices, especially when they are expressed differently for unique people, families, and communities. This conversation will explore how we center ourselves, practice gratitude, and focus our energy in meaningful ways. We will draw on insights from St. Benedict, Scripture, poets, and the wisdom we each bring into the room.

Why Retreat?

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

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

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.
