“I am delighted to return to Oklahoma to become part of the amazing community at the Osage Forest of Peace. We first came here on a private retreat and immediately fell in love with the Forest, the people, and the traditions. It is now an honor to join with the community and our board of directors to play a role in advancing the interspiritual age, providing tangible examples of how people from different faiths can live in harmony and peace.”

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.
