About The Teacher

After being a flying seed, traveling with the wind to many places and dimensions, Durgà attended EARTH University (Costa Rica) to study agronomy. She then received a MS in Holistic Sciences at Schumacher College (UK). After school she worked with ProNativas (identifying plants with very cool botanists), received a diploma from the Permaculture Institute, and began co-teaching the PDC with Scott Pittman, which she has been doing for the last eight years in Costa Rica. Durgá planted her roots at the Sat Yoga Ashram in 2011 and she has been steadily growing there since, while co-coordinating permaculture areas, like growing food, erosion control, waste management, making cheese, and so forth. At Sat Yoga, she finally stayed still enough to observe, the inner and the outer, and realized there is more unknown than known, so every day is a constant learning: how to design with that awareness that we don’t know? And that the more we know, the less we realize we do know... ? She is fascinated by the invisible structures of permaculture, after observing that this is where most projects fail. Dedicated to a life of service to re-design and re-dream the whole thing, she fully trusts that a new world is possible. She understands that we must start with new foundations, that we cannot use the same “principles” the present society is based on, that this is a moment of passage, of transition. Miracles happen: when you change, the world changes around you. She has no doubt that a new world is been born, and that birth is invisible to our eyes, but not to our heart.

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.
