About The Teacher

Linda Hatfield is a retired teacher of French, Language Arts and Social Studies.  She and her family have attended summer programs at Naramata since 1965.  Linda is a former Board Member and an alumni of Winter Session 1978-79.  Writing has always been a passion, and in her retirement she has undertaken her life-long dream of writing a novel.  She has been writing songs and poetry since she was a teen and enjoys sharing her delight in word play and self-expression, especially with those who have always found it intimidating or challenging. When not engaged with the written word, Linda loves to travel, garden, and create with paint, fabric and photograpy.  She lives in Calgary with her husband, Rick Smith, and their two grown children.

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.
