About us

This is an excellent opportunity to invite your entire sangha or practice group.

As leaders and engaged practitioners in the Dharma, how do we create, deepen and maintain enlivening, healthy and wholesome connections as we help to hold space within our Sanghas?  Fostering an atmosphere of mutual appreciation and respect, Restorative Practices offers a transformative approach for people to recognize their mutual interdependence in the struggle to work and live collectively. Through the lens of the Dharma, this retreat will provide an opportunity for participants to explore their relationship to power, ego, and capacity for resilience and emotional risk-taking. Together, we can strengthen our skills to address conflict and harm as it arises between individuals and within our Sanghas.

This retreat is both open to commuters, and as a day-long workshop (with meals). It is not a silent retreat. This is one of the two required retreats for 2018 dharmacharya students.

Why Retreat?

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

To fix me and therefore fix the world. Rogers

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.
