It’s important to introduce meditation with terms and principles that all people from any part of the world understand easily. His objective is to inspire people to apply meditation in their daily life. He considers that his teaching is a chance to share Eastern wisdom to the Western world. We see more and more people say meditation can change and improve their life.

Why Retreat?

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

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

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.
