About This Event

The Buddha points to the middle way – a wisdom that understands the limitations and stress involved with both craving for things to be other than how they are and craving to be done with the challenging and ungovernable circumstances we experience in life. Retreat practice is our opportunity to see more clearly how the mind is conditioned to react to the pleasantness and unpleasantness of experience and to realize another way of relating.

It is possible to relate to experience with a fearless intimacy, allowing for a wise, kind and forgiving response to life. The teachings of this retreat will emphasize the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths and the liberating movement of turning toward and better understanding what is difficult, confusing and uncertain in life.

This retreat will be held in Noble Silence and will also include daily mindful Qi Gong sessions, guided lovingkindness meditations, and opportunities for small group practice interviews.

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.
