About us

The moral and ethical teachings of the Buddha are fundamental to all schools of Buddhism and they are a vital aspect of training within the Mountains and Rivers Order. Easily misunderstood as a simple list of rules, the Precepts are a profound expression of compassion grounded in open-ended awareness and wisdom. The extent to which the Precepts become real in our lives is equal to how concretely we practice and apply them in our particular circumstances.

Using zazen, talks, and discussions to elicit honest reflection, this retreat will introduce us to these ancient and profoundly relevant touchstones of the Buddha Way and how to put them to use.

 Recommended reading: The Heart of Being by John Daido Loori, Roshi.

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.
