      Great classes with great teachers

    I appreciate how Planet Dharma offers year-round online courses for spiritual awakening. I have taken different classes with Planet Dharma from the traditional Buddhist teachings to the more recent Dharma in Film class where I learned about the Dharma through a modern perspective, which were all great and supported me on my spiritual practice. I live in an area where it is difficult to spend time with other Sangha members, and Planet Dharma offers that space to stay connected with the Sangha and Doug and Catherine Sensei.

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
