Advice on funding your dream

Obstacle

In the last four years I have done phone sessions for over 20,000 people, and that has been a powerful lens into the suffering that exists in the world. My dream has been to open a physical centre where I can host people from all spiritual paths in a place where they are free from the distractions of their own lives and can experience true serenity. The biggest challenge I face is funding. Not only is it expensive to buy real estate, but the people I want to serve often have very little income to pay for their retreat.

Advice

First of all, don’t do it for the money. You have to have the calling or it won’t work. You’re going to eat it, sleep it, breath it. Second, it is your dream so you need to create it. I’ve worked hard in my practice as a psychic for years to save the money I needed to buy this property and renovate it. And, at the same time, you can also bring in people to assist in making your dream happen. I recommend hiring a grant writer to help you to tap into resources that exist for non-profits.

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.
