      A real Jewel

    Layth is a real jewel. We have invited him for the last 2 years to come to Nelson at the Shambhala Center to teach introduction to meditation. He is like family now, brining laughter and joy to the potent dharma that he teaches. He was one of my very first meditation teachers and from the beginning demonstrated the openness of the path and lineage. I look forward to many more retreats with Layth.


Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
