About The Teacher

Anita is 54 years old and comes from the native community of Santa Rosa de Dinamarca. She started working with us at the Temple with her husband Diogenes. She carried out her first dieta at the age of 13 with the help of her father who was a Maestro. She initially began working with the medicinal plants in order to help her community and comes from a shamanic lineage. Her brother is also a Maestro.

She works closely during ceremony with her husband as well as with Sulmira who she met when she first came to the Temple and now has a close friendship with. They often sing together to guests. She is very much enjoying her work with us and has commented on how clearly she feels the positive energy that is found at the Temple.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
