Wendy Shumway

About The Teacher

Dr. Wendy Shumway, a physician with nearly 30 years of clinical experience, now works with individuals and organizations to create inspired work experiences. The transition from medicine to coaching was driven by her desire to help health care practitioners who not only are burning out but also “rusting out”—losing their connection to their passion and call to heal.

However, with the U.S. experiencing an employee disengagement rate approaching 70 percent, Wendy has widened her scope of work to include people in a variety of fields that are dissatisfied and languishing at work. Wendy finds that the role of coach/consultant taps her lifelong passion for helping people maximize their potential and create the life they desire. As a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, Dr. Shumway weaves together science, art and psychology, creating a unique approach to her work as a leadership coach and consultant.

When not in the role of coach/consultant at Invisions Consulting, Coaching & Seminars, Wendy enjoys spending time with her son and their two cats, writing, traveling and being in nature.

The heart of all spiritual teachings is simple:
Be love, be peace, be harmony, be compassion, be joy.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
