About The Teacher

I have been a psychotherapist for 25 years and a meditator for almost 40 years.  Through both therapy and teaching, I offer an integrated model of emotional healing and spiritual cultivation.

Many forces have shaped my work: growing up in Mexico and Italy, an early career in documentary filmmaking, an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and a master’s from the University of Georgia, five years as clinical director of a treatment facility for adolescents and another five as a consultant in public systems reform for the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Underlying all circumstances of work and life has been my experience with meditation. I was fortunate enough to learn to meditate at 19, and it has provided my compass setting ever since. I spent 18 years practicing a form of Buddhist meditation and have spent another 20 practicing the blend of Buddhism and Taoism that I now teach. It has served as my own road Home, and it is a privilege to teach it to others.

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.
