About us



This retreat is an entryway to the sacred Chö practice of the Dakini Ear-Whispered Lineage, the lineage of wandering yogis and yoginis. The lineage retreat includes the empowerment, transmission, and commentary, as well as the Tantric practice of visualization and mantra recitation while embodying the awakening energies of Chö Deities.

Our practice will be mainly based on the traditional text: A Retreat Manual of the Five Dakinis, the Preliminary to the Chö Instructions Entitled “A Wish-Fulfilling Powerful King,” composed by Tuken Lobsang Chökyi Nyima (thu’i bkwang blo bsang chos kyi nyi ma, 1737 – 1802). We will also supplement the practice with another prominent text: A Concise Retreat Manual of Great Mother and the Five Dakinis called “Accomplishing the Goal by Recitation,” written by Ngül-chu Dharmabhadra (dngul chu dharma bhadra, 1772-1851).

This retreat interweaves the Tantric practice of embodying the awakening energies of Prajnaparamita and the Five Dakinis with the transformation of conflicting emotions into pure awareness. This retreat is called “the Preliminaries to the Sacred Chö Practice,” a prerequisite to the further Chö practices of the Dâkinî Ear-Whispered Lineage. Retreatants are required to complete a certain number of mantra recitations with visualization, which can be continued as a daily practice after the retreat.

The practice text can be purchased after the Empowerment. The cost is $35.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
