Āyurveda is the foundation to understand the body in the study of Tantra and Yoga. Without a good knowledge of Āyurveda, a student often wonders how the Yogis or Tantrics understood the body. In modern times, we have anatomy to understand the framework of the physical body to administer medicines. Āyurveda allows us to deepen our understanding of how we can treat the emotional, mental and physical aspects of the self in an integral, organic sense. While the study of anatomy allows us the perspective of looking into the body from a reductionist point of view, Āyurveda allows us to delve into what the new millennium scientists define as the systems view (the study of how things influence one another within the whole; a “unifying vision” as opposed to a reductionist or materialistic ideology). It is due to this that we teach our students the science of Āyurveda.

On completion of studying pañcakarma in depth, each student will be awarded a certificate that is recognized by the Indian Government, enabling the student to legally practice pañcakarma. This qualification allows the student to become a diploma-level practitioner of Āyurveda and its ancillary practices.

From within Cambodia you can take a short flight from Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, or come by road from there which takes about 5-6 hours. Bus and taxi services are available.

From Bangkok, by land, the drive is also 6 hours, but you must allot an additional 1-3 hours to get through the border, depending how busy it is. There are many buses from Bangkok.

When entering Cambodia, you will need a passport size photo and US Dollars ($35) for your visa. US Dollars are the primary currency used in Cambodia, so it is good to bring some extra for convenience upon arrival. If you do not have a passport photo they will charge you $2 to arrange it at your port of entry.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
