About The Teacher

Retreat Guide and Alternavida founder. His interest in alternative health and wellness started in the mid-90’s, and since then, his passion has grown to attract diverse practitioners from around the world aligned by a shared vision. Prior to Alternavida, he worked as a green-building leader, educator, and construction manager for world-class clients such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GSA, Microsoft, and Amazon. That experience helped him see the intrinsic link that lifestyle choices have on reducing our environmental impacts while also improving our health and wellbeing.  He has created tools for measuring holistic lifestyles and enjoys bringing diverse practitioners together to create transformational opportunities for retreat and workshop attendees. alternavida.org

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
