About The Teacher

Garuda has East Indian roots in sound and texture but is clearly not traditional in form and discipline. Much like the namesake Hindu-Bhuddist deity, we try to be boundless in our music and exist in the moment. Our ‘Raag’ crosses space and time, east to west, ancient to contemporary and instrumental to vocal. Jason Deatherage quietly continues 25 years of professional musicianship in the artistic mecca of Creston BC.  Having played on and produced major label and Juno nominated albums, Jason Deatherage’s intense, iconoclastic yet tasteful grooves have driven scores of recordings in all genres. Steve Pierson in Nelson BC has been working on his sitar since 1999. He has played in various musical arrangements including rock bands, bluegrass and formerly a duo with tabla (Indian drums). . Dave Gottdenker is a versatile community bass player with over 15 years of accomplished experience. His diversity in music ranges from disco to African dance music. Dave brings dance-ability and pop textures to a world music backdrop.

Why Retreat?

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

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth

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.
