About The Teacher

She's a non-shedding dog, gentle, and full of love. Kevin (yes, Kevin is a 'she') is Karen's side-kick and co-leader of the Companions retreats.

Kevin is a 3-year-old Bernadoodle that calls Burlington home and Karen her roommate.  She is a proud graduate of training school where she shepherded Karen through.  Kevin’s interests focus around napping and she is happiest to rest her chin on your knee (if you're ok with that) or fall asleep at your feet.

(if you are concerned that Kevin will provoke an allergic reaction, talk to us and we can provide alternate accommodations).

Why Retreat?

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

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

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.
