About us

Essential teachings at the heart for the Buddhist practice

What makes you happy? Is your happiness dependent on external factors? What happens if those factors change?

Most of us pursue transitory moments of happiness — believing that the right job, partner, possessions or experience will deliver the satisfaction we seek. We suffer when conditions fail to fulfill us in a lasting way. What we don’t realize is that real, sustained happiness is an inside job — a product of the qualities of our hearts and minds, not the things we acquire or the circumstances of our lives.

In this course, we’ll explore essential Buddhist teachings on generosity, virtue, compassion, and connection, qualities that have the power to ground us in a life of depth, meaning, connection, and joy that sustains us no matter what comes our way.

Each session will include lecture, meditation, sharing, and Q&A, and practical exercises for applying the teachings in your daily life.

Class dates: Tuesday’s: May 14, 21, 28, June 4, 11, 18 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

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.
