About The Teacher

Benedikt Emanuel Al Khafaji is a Psychologist and Mindfulness instructor (specifically with the MBSR protocol).

He has been living in Italy almost all his life but in truth he is a “metisse” with English, Germany and Iraqi roots.

Being of mixed cultural background has made cultural filters clear to him.

Three main areas see Benedikt at work: he engages in various forms of introspection such as Meditation and Yoga; he works in the academic field thanks to collaborations with researchers (American Psychological Association, 2019; International Journal of clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, 2019); he works in schools.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
