About The Teacher

For the last two decades Darcy has been passionately researching the fields of holistic health, alternative medicine, spiritual healing, and human potential. Darcy has worked with hundreds of clients through his ceremonial and transformational energy work practice. He is tapped into the alive potential within humanity to transform and evolve into ways of living that are supportive of life. He has a deep passion for helping people heal and thrive, and has dedicated many years to training within shamanism, consciousness studies, self-inquiry, and various energy healing modalities.

In the last 13 years he has been traveling to Peru to study with the Master shamans of the Peruvian Amazon, the high plateaus of the Andean mountains, and coastal Peru in the practice of traditional Curanderismo  and Paqokuna shamanism. Eventually Darcy discovered the beautiful Pachakuti mesa lineage of Andean medicine taught by don Oscar Miro-Quesada. He felt very called to begin apprenticeship in this wisdom system, as well as journeying within the Pachakuti teacher’s path. Darcy has been astounded and astonished at the beauty, the majesty, and the incredible potential for these ancient Andean energies to transform and awaken consciousness in our lifetime.  He is honoured to be able to be in service to the beauty of this lineage.

Darcy's synergetic ceremonial practice is an expression of his love for life and spirit. This practice is characterized by his love of learning, fearless curiosity, playful sense of humour, and kindness. Darcy is committed to support as many people as possible in this planetary evolution, and tremendously honored to be of service in the support of others in their own healing, wholeness and well being.

      A true seeker of the Great Mystery

    I've worked with Darcy and participated in many of his ceremonial and retreat offerings. There are few people I've met who are as committed as Darcy is to preserving ancient and universal wisdom teachings and exploring the limitless beings we all are. I've witnessed time and again Darcy earn the trust and respect of many elders from many traditions and backgrounds.

      Warm, experienced, humble, intuitive, and a great guide and teacher

    I went on a trip last year to Peru for the Visionary Quest that Darcy and Robin organized. It was all that I could imagine and more. It was a family affair, with their mom and child. Every detail was taken care of so effortlessly, all we had to do was take in all the beautiful sites and ceremonies. I was especially impressed with the integrity of Darcy and Robin by giving back to the local school and their relationships with the local people. I would highly recommend taking part in any thing that Darcy and Robin offer, you will LOVE them and all that they offer. Guaranteed fun and connection to the area, ancestors, and nature.

      Integrity, Clarity & Heart

    It is rare indeed to find people who teach by the way they live, and live by what they teach, and that is exactly the medicine that Darcy offers. He works with the utmost integrity, and carries with him a depth of love, clarity, and reverence for life. A beautiful teacher and a wonderful friend to many. Munay.

      A Gift

    The Hummingbird's Blessing Pilgrimage was a very special time for me, opening a door to a deeper relationship with my heart and our beautiful earth. My connection with my mesa and the Pachakuti lineage deepened and expanded through the journey, offering me a take-away anchor of support and guidance that will direct and accompany me through all phases of growth. Robin and Darcy are impeccable guides, offering from their depth of personal experience and sincere desire to serve all life. With their unshakable integrity and incredible passion for this work, they bring a joyful and light-hearted approach to transformation. They are committed to ushering in the new consciousness with as much fun and grace as possible.

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.
