Makara (Stephen J. Hopson)

About The Teacher

Makara is Stephen’s spiritual name.  It means 1/2 sea creature (dolphin!) and 1/2 terrestial (not from this world!).  He is a former Wall Street stockbroker, bestselling author of “Obstacle Illusions,” the first deaf instrument rated pilot in the world (2006), and now on a quest to help awaken others to their true spiritual potential.  Makara is a Dolphin Ambassador, spiritual way-shower, Reiki Practitioner and a Shamanic healer.   He also leads retreats in Hawaii with wild dolphins.   When people spend time with him, they strongly resonate with his powerful vibration, which has been known to uplift, empower and inspire them to deepen their spirituality. Visit for more information about his book “Obstacle Illusions” and check out Makara’s other websites and about his mission to make a difference.

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.
