Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos – Dön Season Chants

About us

It is traditional in Tibetan Buddhism to do Mamo practice to purify obstacles of the past year. This is done before the Tibetan New Year during a time called “dön season”.

Döns are environmental forces that cause humans to do careless and self-destructive activities that could lead to anger, breaks with reality, and poor decision making. The most effective way to work with döns is with mindfulness, which is why winter is a ripe time for meditation.

Mamos are at the center of the dön season practice. Mamos are legendary wrathful deities that react when we forget the ground of basic goodness and our own human nobility.

Each session is a little over an hour and is a look at the causes and conditions of wrathful compassion and awareness. Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos is a contemplation of the potential for a sacred perspective to restores balance in the world. By tuning into the message of the chant, we pacify the wrathful deities and the darkness of the winter season.

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.
