About This Event

“The deeper the root, the sweeter the fruit.” This quote will inspire our experience during this overnight retreat designed to help participants explore their emotional-and-physical wellness, as well as their self-care practices. Participants will be guided through mindfulness practices that will help them connect to their deepest needs and desires. Experiential learning will arise through yoga, drawing, writing, mindful eating, and group sharing. Periods of silence will be interspersed throughout the retreat to allow time for introspection and observation. This will be a safe space for participants to explore their struggles and to understand how stress is often transformed into opportunity. Participants will learn practices that will help form a daily mindfulness and self-care routine and encourage them to look deeply at the root of their well-being.

Join us as:

Guided mindfulness practices such as Awareness of Breath and Body Scan to create a calm receptiveness in the present moment

Self-care practices such as mindful nutrition and exploring our relationship with food and health

Art therapy to encourage participants to discover and create their desired life, as well as areas of growth or release

Yoga, mindful movement, and dance therapy

Guided imagery

Exploring silence as a tool for deeper insight

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

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.
