About us

As humans we are exquisitely sensitive and can easily become overwhelmed in the sea of relentless sensory contact. Learning how to cultivate mindfulness and tranquility in the flow of daily life is a profound resource for peace and for wise action.

In this Insight Dialogue retreat we will practice taking refuge in awareness, wisdom, and spiritual friendship (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). We will investigate obstacles to friendship and beloved community, internally in the heart-mind, and externally in social constructions, cultivating Lovingkindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy, and Relational Equanimity. We will explore foundations for peace, possibilities for courageous personal and collective action, and the benefits of deep companionship on the Noble Eightfold Path.

This retreat is both an introduction to Insight Dialogue and an opportunity to deepen practice. It will be held in Noble Silence except for the Insight Dialogue sessions. We will alternate periods of silent meditation practice, Insight Dialogue, mindful movement and time in nature.

Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation form based in Vipassana. In Insight Dialogue practice, we extend our solitary meditation into a meditation of speaking and listening in contemplation with others.

An ongoing meditation/mindfulness practice and previous retreat experience would be extremely helpful as background for this retreat.  If you have questions about the suitability of this retreat for you, please feel free to email Phyllis or Sharon.

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.
