About The Teacher

As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and shamanic practitioner, I dynamically combine ancient and contemporary healing methods for soul exploration, excavation and transmutation! I guide individuals beyond the veil of their conscious everyday awareness, to access the deep wisdom held in their bodies, hearts, and Higher Self. 

I have always been a story-seeker and a storyteller. I’ve felt the vibration of ancient legends in the cells of my body, known that somehow they are etched in my bones, waiting to be revealed for their highest purpose. And I can tell you, there’s nothing quite like a healing story, served up like a hearty stew for the soul, like a magical tincture that can evoke every shade of every emotion. That can bring wonder… wisdom… hope… truth.

As a graduate and storycrafter of UCSD’s Lit/Writing program, I have felt the profound and undeniable healing of writing and rewriting my personal myth, shedding my old small self and stepping into my Heroine Self. With over 7 years and thousands of hours of experience facilitating to diverse populations, I have learned to recognize and welcome the most brilliant and whole Self of those I meet; to call that part forward as they journey through their own deserts and darkness, and into their own Light.

I specialize in trauma resolution, Inner Child healing, anxiety/stress reduction, and spiritual development.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
