About The Teacher

Chris flourishes at integrating the disparate – whether physics and philosophy, action and contemplation, performance and poetry. He LOVES the human incarnation, where we get to make love with people, ideas, and alternate and even paradoxical points of view. Chris is a complex man with simple convictions, including the following: the self-evidential power of beauty, the transformative capacity of myth, story, and metaphor, the Golden Rule, the scientific method, Ockham’s Razor, the allure of wabi-sabi, the primacy of fruits and vegetables, and the hunt for Sasquatch — which is none other than the thrill of breathing fresh air and encountering our elusive, wild, and ancient selves. By day, Chris is the Energy Director at Sol design + consulting. Since becoming Sol’s first employee, Chris has helped Sol deliver over 5000 successfully certified green homes and commercial buildings in 21 states and globally, including the first LEED Platinum home in the Middle East and the first multi-family Passive House in Ohio. He builds energy models, rates buildings, educates the educators, thinks in systems, and speaks the language of kilowatts, carbon footprints, and spreadsheet gymnastics. At night, he runs ultra-marathons through the woods with his dog and scribbles poems in the sand.…

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.
