Wendy Kopald and Kay Gardner

About The Teacher

Wendy Kopald, LCSW is co-leader of The Women’s Circle. She is a psychotherapist in the Chicago area, and she leads workshops on women’s issues and peace initiatives with women. She studied the ancient South American medicine wheel and integrates that into the retreats. In her spare time, she is a jewelry maker and is working on her writing skills.  This work is close to her heart as she has witnessed the powerful experienceYogaFromTheBeginning.com s that communities of women create. Kay Gardner, LCPC is co-leader of The Women’s Circle. She is a psychotherapist in the Chicago area and is a lead trainer for The Internal Family Systems Therapy. Kay’s practice also includes Hakomi, body centered therapy, and she is a certified yoga teacher who integrates that into her therapy practice. She is trained shamanically and uses energy techniques in her work. Much of the foundation of the way that Wendy & Kay work reflects the trust, compassion, love and validation that they have experienced in their 20 year friendship. The retreats are always filled with music, laughter, joy, movement, and insight.  They love leading these retreats together and seeing the bonds created on the retreat build into friendships that last years.

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.
