About us

This retreat offers opportunities to practice meditation through movement and rest. Our aim in meditation is to experience the truth of our own nature. Retreatants will observe noble silence with sitting, chi-gong movement, dharma contemplation, journaling and DahnJon abiding meditation. The retreat also includes group and individual teaching. Because of Won Buddhism’s belief in the interconnectedness of all things, we will practice outside in the mountain’s great chi-energy, as weather permits. In harmonizing and balancing the energy of our body and mind, we cultivate a calm awareness and let the light of our true nature shine! In the spirit of community, all retreatants should arrive on time and stay through the mid-day meal on our final day. Won Buddhism is a modern form of Buddhism, originating in Korea in 1916. Its founder, Sot’aesan, envisioned a practice for all people, emphasizing equality among all economic groups, races, genders, and between priests and laity. The One-Circle-Image (Il-Won-Sang) in Won Buddhism symbolizes our inherent true nature, the oneness and truth of the universe. Sot’aesan believed that great enlightenment is possible without removing oneself from the everyday world; in every moment of life, practicing Gratitude and the Threefold Study (Cultivating Equanimity, Wisdom, and Mindful Action) will lead to individual awakening and transform the world into paradise.

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.
