I have been associated with the Wat Thamkrabok Buddhist Drug Treatment & Rehabilitation Centre in Thailand since 1998. I became a charter member of the Buddhist Recovery Network in 2009 and since that time I have been developing and promoting a wholly-Buddhist approach to recovery from addictions and compulsions.

Experiential harm reduction and relapse prevention are encouraged by aligning personal aspirations with Buddhist-oriented principles. Positive outcomes are realised through ethically focused mindfulness and traditional meditation practices; including the cultivation of self-love, self-compassion, self-appreciation, self-balance and self-forgiveness for a wholehearted recovery.

This approach is promoted through the Fifth Precept Organisation - particularly through 'Sit-and-Share' meetings - and at dedicated Hungry Ghost Retreats.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine
 

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.
