About This Event

We live in a world that is fast and disconnected with the important things in life. A mindfulness retreat give a chance to step back, gain some distance and a fresh perspective of our lives. It is an opportunity to be conscious, mindful, and regain peace spend time in the nature and breath. Mindfulness means being fully aware in each present moment, and it transform the way you lead your life. By paying more attention to our own thoughts and feeling, and the world around us we improve our mental and emotional wellbeing.

Traditional Sri Lankan Ayurvedic food


From Negambo take the bus to Kurunagala. It should take you about 2 1/2 hrs from Negambo.

When you get down from Kurunagala, get the bus that goes to Polonnaruwa. (ask anyone. Sri Lankans are very friendly and helpful and speaks english ok). You need to get off before Habarana near Aliya Hotel. Tell the bus conductor that you want to get off at Aliya. The last big town you will pass is Dambulla. Remind the conductor again that you want to get of at Aliya Hotel (A108 mile post) this is about 4 km from Habarana.

Once you get off there are tuk tuks available. (you won't see the Aliya hotel as it is on a side road) The tuk tuk will cost less than Rs1000. Tell them Mahagedara Hotel.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl

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.
