About us

Love. Human Dignity. Wellness Through Total Well-Being.

As founder and owner of Soma Essential Healing, Kedarji brings to our offering more than 30 years experience in whole life transformation, holistic wellness and total well-being, both as a holistic healing practitioner and researcher. A former actor, musician and performing arts producer, Kedarji is also a meditation master with more than 20 years experience teaching meditation and offering people access to permanent spiritual transformation. He is known for practicing what he preaches and offering what he has become. He was also mentored in the field of lifestyle medicine and holistic health and healing by the early pioneers of this field (see below).

He studied oriental medicine, iridology, acupressure, acupuncture, shiatsu and deep tissue massage, holistic nutrition and energy healing with pioneers of the whole life movement such as Michio Kushi, Aveline Kushi, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Wataru Ohashi, Michael Abehsera, Masaaki Yamaguchi, William Dufty, Gloria Swanson, Anne Marie Colbin and Victor Kulvinskas. He completed his studies and training in Oriental Medicine, graduating from The Kushi Institute in 1979, having mentored directly under Michio Kushi. He was taught Meditation, Yoga Science and spiritual philosophy by recognized spiritual Masters after completing studies with renowned philosopher V. Saly. He was certified in the clinical application of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) by Anne Linden of the renowned New York City NLP Center. With this extensive background in Total Well-Being, Kedarji has integrated a formidable, Total Well-Being approach.

This sets him apart, in a unique way, to elucidate the true meaning of Yoga, in the context of the current advances in lifestyle medicine and wellness. For this reason, he has integrated his spiritual attainment, and the spiritual offering of many years that he has made through The Bhakta School of Transformation, to include meeting the growing public need for effective, alternative methods to vibrant health and healing. This integration is offered as Kedarji’s Ecology of Wellness and our 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being.

In addition, Kedarji has the distinction of having observed in himself and his clients and students, what happens when they have fully implemented the lifestyle medicine approach we now offer, and what happens when people stop that approach. This has given him valuable insight, in research studies now being developed, as a comparison to measure what works best in most cases.

He now manages the research, coaching and certification areas of Soma Essential Healing.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
