About us

For women at all levels.

“We will see that the female body, manifesting as the dakini, is a potential vehicle for enlightenment. The Mandala of the Five Dakinis is a doorway with deep, profound roots that are timeless and inclusive. It is a practice that can help you meet the challenges of everyday life—when you feel scattered and pulled in many directions at once—by entering the mandala and meeting the dakinis, you will access deep clarity and power.”

—from Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine

Calling all women for this life-changing meditation retreat and celebration of the Empowered Feminine. Come transform through the power of the mandala, a universal map for inner and outer balance, wholeness, and practical awakening.

Drawing on her experience as a Tibetan Buddhist nun turned mother, who became a best-selling author and world-renowned Buddhist teacher, Lama Tsultrim Allione offers a guide to access a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine: the fierce wise Dakini—whose potency is needed to meet the gale force winds of the current world situation—a dynamic spiritual model based on a 1,000-year-old Tibetan tradition. Through the Mandala of the Five Dakinis—a universal template of wholeness—emotional patterns are transformed into wisdom, giving us a practical method that enables us to find strength and wholeness within, while empowering us to become effective agents of transformation in our world.

Pioneering global Prana Vinyasa teacher Shiva Rea shares Mandala Yoga as a complementary movement meditation. These accessible yet profound meditation and movement practices empower all women to embody the healing power of the mandala in their body and daily life in service to the world.

In this juicy weekend for women, you

• Receive Lama Tsultrim’s transmission of the Mandala of Five Wisdom Dakinis, midwives of the wild and wise feminine

• Learn to transform core emotional patterns affecting women today—anxiety, anger, inadequacy, depression, grasping, and compulsive doing—into living wisdom

• Experience Mandala Yoga with Shiva Rea, an all-levels movement meditation that combines healing prostrations, prana vinyasa, visualization, seed syllables, mudra, and inner process

• Regenerate through daily guided relaxation and women’s circles

• Enjoy a special Friday night Yoga Trance Dance and celebrate in a special evening concert with Krishna Das, dedicated to the Empowered Feminine

• Explore optional morning sessions of Prana Mandala Vinyasa led by Shiva Rea

• Have an opportunity to have Lama Tsultrim’s new book Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine signed by the author.

Leave rejuvenated, with the practical guidance you need to activate all aspects of your being, from your body to your creative life and spiritual realization, and continue with programs at Tara Mandala and Prana Vinyasa Online.

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.
