About This Event

What does it mean to be a beneficial presence? Is it about what we do or how we are, or both? This year’s Teacher’s Retreat will explore what it means to embody beneficial, compassionate, wise, equanimous presence for the sake of others, not only in Dharma contexts but in our daily lives. In the course of this retreat, we will consider the role of listening, discernment, self-care and healthy boundaries in spiritual care, as well as looking at what impedes beneficial presence, for us as individuals and in community. As part of our discussion, we will revisit and clarify the leadership roles and responsibilities (which are gradually growing and changing) at Natural Dharma Fellowship, exploring how we can embody our roles to the fullest, while upholding common purpose and shared values, and addressing our individual aspirations.

(Registration restricted to NDF Core and Visiting Teachers, and NDF Mentors and Margha Mitras)

Why Retreat?

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

After the past two years of transition on every level, I would absolutely LOVE a retreat! :) Chelsee

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.
