Bill Booth

About us

Bill is an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada, serving at Trinity Memorial United in downtown Abbotsford since 2012. He moved from a career in electronics to ministry in the United Church in the mid-1990s, seeking a more meaningful activity for his life’s work, and graduated from Vancouver School of Theology with a Masters of Divinity in 1999. Bill is passionate about long distance walks and pilgrimages, and the emotional, psychological, and spiritual benefits of a long journey. He has walked the Camino Santiago twice, as well as the West Highlands Way in Scotland. He is an active energy healer using the Pure Bio energy method. He enjoys the interface between science and faith and sees no contradiction in the two methods in seeking truth. Bill first attended a Naramata Centre summer week in 1966 when he was yet small boy. Since that early start he has been to Centre programs numerous times. His faith was born, challenged and enriched at the centre. He introduced his children to the Centre in the 1980s. Today the Centre continues to be part of his spiritual journey.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
