    “Seeking the Light” One of the powerful Biblical images of God’s presence is light – “a light that shines on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.” It is the hope of Israel that this light would be given to them with the coming of the Messiah, and it is this light that we anticipate in the Advent season. In this retreat we will contemplate the great longing expressed in…

    Often on the holiday of Thanksgiving we focus on the meal but would it not be great if we really focused on the gifts that we receive and how we can develop an attitude of gratitude that keeps us aware of the tremendous gifts that we experience in our lives?  So often the gifts God gives us go unnoticed because we don’t take the time to really notice them.  Come apart for a day where you…

    “I have come that you may have LIFE and have it ABUNDANTLY” (Jn 10:10) In the Greek, the word “abundant” means beyond measure, more than what one would ever imagine or expect. This is what Jesus promises us. At the same time, this abundance does not come to us by magic. The spiritual journey is a continual process of learning, practicing, making mistakes, correcting them, and in the…

The retreat will focus our contemplation of God’s great love in the “sacrifice” of the Good Shepherd, who “lays down…

    “The Mystery of the Passion: Surrendering to the Beloved” The story of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus is a story of love and self-gift. As we grow more mature in our relationships, we recognize that there are “seasons” in our hearts: times of growth and fruitfulness; as well as times of pruning and sacrifice. So too in the relationship of prayer and the spiritual journey –…

Why Retreat?

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

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

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.
