About This Event

In the Lord’s Prayer Christians pray, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”  Many of us say those words many times each week, and some, every day.  Yet forgiveness is something we struggle with.  For many of us, accepting God’s forgiveness of our failings is difficult.  Even more of us struggle with forgiving those who have hurt us, those we love, or our communities. This evening will invite us to reflect on the things that make it difficult for us to forgive.  How do we deal with anger and hurt that hinder forgiveness?  How do we separate forgiveness from our notions of justice and desert?  What is the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation? What is the relationship between our acceptance of God’s forgiveness of us and our willingness to forgive others?  These are some of the questions we will explore in our time together.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
