Marianne Richmond

About The Teacher

The author and artist of more than 50 children's books, Marianne helps people share their heart and connect with those they love. With more than 6 million copies sold, Marianne's gift is writing for the “unique everybody,” putting into words the feelings that unite us.  

Marianne's adventure into book writing began in her mid 20's following brain surgery to remove a benign tumor, the source of numerous epileptic seizures during childhood. What started as hand-painted thank you cards for her well-wishers blossomed into a successful publishing company she co-ran for 15 years. 

Today, in addition to her own creating, she loves encouraging women to embrace their own spirit, creativity and wisdom while cultivating meaningful connection with others!  "I'm delighted when my work is a bridge to the message of your own heart," says Marianne.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
