About us

Singer, songwriter, teacher and facilitator of The Authentic Voice workshops and Sound of Being retreats, Anna has been studying the voice and it’s powerful connection to life, harmony and vibration for twenty years.  A health professional in Integrative Body Psychotherapy and voice teacher Anna combines the worlds of the voice, the Chakra energy system, psychology and spirituality to uncover your true Authentic voice.

Singing has taught me let go, to heal and feel my way through to express myself in my life.  Over the years I have come to know this profound relationship of spirit and matter and heaven and earth that the voice offers us, if we are willing to explore it.

In the past few years, Anna has opened for the late Dr. Maya Angelou at the Winspear, performed as the lead in “The Titanic – Musical” and was the feature performer at the World Kindness Concert in Vancouver and at the opening VIP gala for Deepak Chopra’s presentation in Edmonton. She sang in her regular appearance for the Edmonton International Jazz Festival in June, and at other local concerts throughout the year. In addition to teaching her Express Yourself courses across western Canada, Anna has written the songs and music for – and recorded – her fourth CD, The Doorway. Clearly, Anna has many strings to her bow!DSC00895_adj

There comes a time when one’s life meets one’s purpose. For Anna, that time came when all roads led her to the mystical love poetry and wisdom of Rumi and Hafiz, Sufi poets from the 13th and 14th centuries. Shaded with Jazz, Celtic and Middle Eastern influences, the inspirational songs on The Doorway CD weave together the many genres that have colored Anna’s life thus far.

Why Retreat?

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

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

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.
