About This Event

Someone has remarked that a cynic is often an idealist with a broken heart. In an era in which the fires of social anger, fear of The Other, intolerance in all its forms, and concern over what seems to have been lost burn out of control, the path to cynicism is smooth and all downhill. In this conversation we explore how we balance our troubling concerns with our deepest convictions about what is true, good, and beautiful so that we continue to aspire to our idealism despite the evidence.

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
