About The Teacher

Teaching Assistant

Alysa was 7 years old when she wrote her first story: The Adventures of Kinney and Korney, an instant classic in her family. After that stellar debut, she went on to become a playwright, then a casting director for TV, theater, and film before realizing she wanted to write for the smartest people around--kids.

Her upper middle grade novel debut, THE VERDIGRIS PAWN, will be published by Harper Collins in winter 2021.

Alysa lives in NY’s Hudson Valley with her family. When she isn't writing she's probably walking the dogs, trying to lift heavy weights, or seeing as much theater as she possibly can.

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
