About This Event

When was the last time you…

…were quiet enough to hear your own voice

…felt deeply rested and inspired?

…connected authentically with yourself and others in real-time without networking or performing?

…had even one waking-hour long break from your phone or laptop?

Discover the joy of putting down your phone and coming home to yourself. More that just a “digital detox,” this one-of-a kind yoga and meditation retreat will nourish your mind, body and spirit while empowering you to right-size your relationship with technology long after you depart.

As a psychotherapist for over 14 years, your Retreat Guide Christina Malecka has had a front-row seat to the emotional impacts of smartphones and social media on her clients: notably increased loneliness, anxiety, and alienation. In 2017, inspired her own transformative experience with digital fasting, Christina launched Digital Mindfulness Retreats, which emphasize meditation, present-moment experience, social connection, and self-reflection. A community organizer turned Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Politicized Healer, she brings over 25 years of experience with change-making, group facilitation, mindfulness training, and workshop development. Christina loves creating nurturing experiences to help people connect more deeply with self and others.

"Please, please give yourself the gift of this retreat. One week felt like an eternity when I signed up, but the the experience absolutely shattered me in the best of ways. I felt comfortable, cared for and respected as soon as I entered the space."

Troncones Beach is a small, recently-developed community situated on some 3 miles of pristine Pacific beach – a strand of white sand punctuated by occasional rock outcroppings often harboring tidepools teeming with fascinating saltwater life.

Our beautifully designed accommodations and loving staff will please even the most discerning guests.
Just a 30-second walk to the beach, let the sounds of the ocean lure you to sleep each night.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

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.
