About us

Sorry! Registration is closed.

Gesture of Awareness is a meditative approach to presence. What is at stake in this practice is not what we are doing or how we are doing anything but simply being.

This can be explored in simple movements or gesture, in taking a step, in the contact with another person or in the awareness of the way our mental representations condition the way we live.

Awakened to the nonjudgmental immediacy of the instant, one can discover an incomparable sense of freedom. Any situation could be approached with this attitude.

The practice is usually held in silence under the guidance of the teacher.

Each retreat day will include practices of Gesture of Awareness, time for walks, rest, and quiet contemplation. During the week, Charles will give a dharma talk based on the Vimalakirti Sutra.


Wonderwell Mountain Refuge strives to offer retreats in a manner that is non-cost prohibitive and inclusive to persons of all means. If the full retreat cost would create an undue financial burden, we encourage persons to apply for scholarship and work-study. Whether one needs to request aid to defer a large or small portion of the cost of a retreat so as not to incur a financial burden, we strive to accommodate you. This link will take you to information about our work-study and scholarship possibilities.

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.
