Grace Anderson

About The Teacher

Grace Anderson fell in love with wild spaces after a week long backpacking trip with the Student Conservation Association in Joshua Tree National Park. Since then she’s been chasing wild spaces in places such as Patagonia, the Yukon and Nepal. Grace enjoys backpacking, climbing and bike touring and is always looking for new adventures. She’s passionate about being outside with folks of color and has the desire to share her skills and resources with people for those communities in hopes of creating a more radically diverse outdoor community. In addition for instructing for balance Balanced Rock, Grace instructs for NOLS and GirlVentures.

When not working in the field, she is the Director of PGM ONE, an organization that convenes people of color working in the outdoor and the environment fields.

When Grace isn’t outside or working, she can be found binge reading books or throwing a themed party.

True compassion means to meet others beyond their story,
and to see that there are no others at all. Jeff Foster

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.
