About us

Developing antidotes against the 3 poisons of desire, anger, and ignorance lies at the heart of the great project of Buddhadharma. Sometimes we are aware of how these poisons function, but are often out of touch with how they manifest in most parts of our lives. In our contemporary lives, we may experience anger as intense aversion against accepting our own shortcomings or the struggles of our communities and country. Desire can be experienced as deep attachment to wanting to feel good and unbothered while ignorance is experienced as both intentional and unintentional avoidance of the truth. Historically and of late, we have witnessed how when these poisons are in concert together, they give rise to intense violence. Unfortunately, we seem to be surrounded by this negative energy in our homes, workplaces, and schools. How do we begin working with this energy in our practice, enabling us to transform these poisons in our minds and in our environments into transformative peace? How do we understand that these poisons are actually important teachers for us? This retreat will combine simple movement, meditation, contemplation, small group interaction, journaling, as well as structured and guided dialogue to help us break through the barriers that prevent authentic and intimate dialogue and interaction with others.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl

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.
