Naren K. Schreiner

About us

Naren K. Schreiner represents the sacred culture of India blended with American idealism. He is not only a teacher and musician of India’s sacred traditions, he also represents the lifestyle of India’s ancient religion applied to modern life in America. He began his own spiritual search when he was 14, exploring different paths and teachers. Two years later he chose to take initiation into the Kriya Yoga lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda. He then became a monk in the Self-Realization Fellowship ashram (monastery) of his Satguru, Paramahansa Yogananda. For the next 14 years, Naren lived as a brahmachari (monastic yogi), studying religion, practicing yoga and living the pure, disciplined life of a monk.

 In 2012 Naren founded Sangita Yoga (the yoga of sacred chanting and music). He is also an ordained pujari (Hindu priest) of the Kali Mandir Ramakrishna Ashrama in Laguna Beach, CA. He travels offering puja, ceremonies, retreats, lectures and sacred music offerings.

Naren has released several albums of sacred music, including his latest release Temple of Silence. Visit:

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
