About us

I am an activist as a way of living. I participate in struggles to bring about change now; to promote a sharing of the earth’s wealth; to promote freedom so that people can live in harmony with each other, our planet and the larger universe; and to oppose all forms of oppression and exploitation whether economic or social. I have been part of the black student and community movement of the 1970's and the trade union movement of the 1980-90's. These were rebellions against race rule in South Africa. I am currently involved in movements that support Southern African communities living near mines in their resistance against the destructive actions of mining corporations. I have a personal reflective practice of contemplation, learning to be quiet and listen to self and to connect with the beautiful energy of other people and the planet I live in. All of this is so that my activism arises from love and not fear; that my intentions do not slip into a hopeless struggle for personal survival and power over life.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
 

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.
