About us

This is not a typical western retreat. Over 12 days we will examine the 40 meditation subjects/objects carried down through the Theravadan lineage and learn how to use them. All can suppress the five hindrances allowing one to pursue wisdom, some can be used as antidotes to abandon discursive thought, some lead to access concentration or one of the four jhanas. Realization of all four jhanas can be induced through two of them. In addition, the Pali commentaries provide guidelines for suggesting meditation subjects based on one’s general temperament. And, it is remarkable that today’s technology, science and physics verify the veracity of many of the Buddha’s teaching in regard to direct knowledge that can be attained through right concentration. Samahito Thero will be showing the correlation between these modern scientific thoughts and proof on many subjects. If you’ve been wanting to take your practice to the next level, get to this retreat!

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.
