      Earth to Sky - Body to Soul / Sufi Whirling Retreat

    This one would encourage everyone to come to this retreat. It is truly a welcome refuge away from the noise and the stresses of the world. The souls you meet here put your heart and mind at ease. The location is beautiful. The air is some of the cleanest in the world. There is joy here. There is true and real companionship here. There is love here. This one’s back problems were resolved here through the body awareness exercises. The knowledge and the exercises Senem has to share, you won’t find anywhere else. He also learned how to truly whirl from an authentic whirling teacher and dervish, Selcuk. Selcuk takes you step by step through the different stages of whirling. This one witnessed here how it is possible to go from someone who knows nothing of whirling to becoming someone who it seems has been whirling a lifetime. All of this in just a few days. This retreat is for everyone, from beginners to those who have already begun. The evenings of music which go well into the night are awesome. This is authentic Sufi music which will bring you joy, happiness, maybe even some much needed ecstasy. Honestly, the teachers here don’t know how to promote or speak about what is being offered here. Don’t know why that is. It’s a mystery because this is such a ‘hidden treasure’. Retreats like this are so much so needed in this world. All in all, this retreat flows beautifully and will be remembered by you, as this one remembers it, forever. So, come! ~ Kamran

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

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.
