Dr. Vanessa Bezy

About The Teacher

Vanessa fell in love with the “pura vida” pace of life and culture that centers on a respect and connectedness with nature during a study abroad experience back in 2004 and eventually made Costa Rica her permanent home. She has since dedicated herself to marine conservation, working primarily with sea turtles and in particular the mass-nesting phenomenon at the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to her research, she is actively involved in educational and outreach activities, through which she has earned the title “the Jane Goodall of Sea Turtles” bestowed on her by National Geographic.

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.
