Summer Haiku: Encountering the Poetry of the Earth

About This Event

Haiku is the one poetic form in all of world literature that concerns itself with following Nature as a spiritual path. Haiku preserves a connection with the seasonal rhythms of the natural world, rhythms that make sense of the experience of human life, offering us a way to live with vitality, die peacefully, and celebrate each day with gratitude and grace. At this summer retreat with haiku masters Clark Strand and Priscilla Lignori, participants will learn the basic principles of haikuForm, Season, and Present Mindand discover how to encounter Nature directly using the haiku technique developed by Masaoka Shiki called the sketch from life. Dress for the season and prepare to wander the mountain in search of poetry.

Why Retreat?

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

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

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.
