      Great person to hike with!

    Steven Harper was the leader of a retreat that my family participated in at Esalen. Steven has been at Esalen for a long time, and knows the surrounding area well. He did a good job of cultivating a strong sense of community in our group, of sharing interesting information during the hikes that we went on, and of weaving in poetic wisdom throughout the day. He is friendly and approachable, and a pleasure to go on a retreat with.

Why Retreat?

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

My beautiful wife! Jupiter

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.
