About us

With our busy lives, demanding jobs, family needs and an ever-changing landscape of politics and social change, it can be easy to lose track of our most basic wisdom. According to the Shambhala tradition, human beings inherently possess a deep intelligence that can help us restore a sense of wholeness, health, and vision to our lives and to society. Within our ordinary experience--in our bodies, our senses, our emotions, and our thoughts--a present and brilliant strength is available. 

Shambhala Meditation is a simple and profound practice for rediscovering these qualities of goodness and strength. A unique heart transmission from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Shambhala Meditation allows us to feel, be, and touch humanity's original wisdom.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

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.
