About The Teacher

I am delighted to have connected with you. Below is a brief description of my journey and depth of experience. I love teaching and have been praised again and again and asked to continue teaching consciousness development. I am always looking for new ways to present information and processes to embody the wisdom-this keeps the work fresh and alive. 

No one ever recieved a different result by doing the same thing. When you travel to Italy, you don't hire a guide for China. When you travel into a new lanscape of the mind and soul, it's important to have a guide that knows the territory, has helped others and supports you with solutions, nourishment, encouragement and empowerment. Please email me (Melinda@(contact info blocked)) to see my before and after photos as a demonstration of the level of change which is available to everyone who is committed. 

Included in (but not limited to) my formal education are multiple certifications which demonstrate professional competency. I began teaching in 1997 and professional private healing practice in 2002. I have a very deep and broad base of experience. 

 I was licensed as a Spiritual Counselor with Holmes Institute in 2002. (contact info blocked) . This liscensing included 4+ years of extensive training, extensive testing which  includes written and oral exams and clinical training. In 2007 I received certification of professional competency in Luminous Healing and Energy Medicine Practitoner from the Four Winds Society. (contact info blocked)/  which included written case studies which demonstrated the process of the client successfully healing. I have studied directly with Dr. Alberto Villoldo in his acclaimed Healing the Lightbody School. I have traveled to Peru and Chile and received initiatory rites of passage as a Modern Medicine Woman from the Q’ero, direct descendants of the Inka and Master Shamans of the high Andes. I have made mutliple trips into the amazon jungle and bring groups to work in Peru. I lead retreats, educational programs, mentor the dying and facilitate rights of passage such as baptism, marriage and midwife the dying.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
