About us

James Emler has been a photographer for over 40 years and draws from a large body of work.  His roots are in film but he now uses digital as well as it allows him to bring new ideas to his picture making, and he now incorporates other media such as drawing and painting into his practice. He has authored three books on the subjects of photography and seeing; Nudes, Photographs, Notes, Observations and Ideas; Search For Silence, Photographs and Notes; and, Dreams and Realities which is available in PDF or EPUB format.  His work has also been featured in a number of other publications including Rod Ashford’s Lighting for Nude Photography available from Amazon.com.  For 6 years he was the head instructor at Focal Point – the Visual Arts Learning Centre and has also served as Department Head for the digital photography program at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts where I was also Chairman of their Advisory Board.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
