Working with Emotions

About us

Confused, wild emotions can dominate us in obvious and subtle ways. Without suppressing feelings or acting them out, Buddhist meditation works with emotions directly. The energy of emotions becomes the basis for developing wisdom and compassion. The ground is experiencing the pain and confusion of emotions, and looking for a way to work with them. The path or process of working with emotions is explored. The fruition leads to further clarity in communication with others.

In this course we will explore the pain and confusion of emotions and look at ways to work with them.  This is through the practice of meditation and mindfulness, developing maitri (loving kindness), prajna (wisdom) and communication with a Mahayana outlook.  In particular the quality of emotions, the attitude toward emotions, agelessness and the relationship of intelligence and confusion.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
