About This Event

Lama David Miller will be assisting

Lama Willa Miller and Brendan Kennedy will be joining the retreat at the end to give teachings and attend the closing feast.

This intensive retreat explores vital points and practices of Vajrayana Buddhism, the branch of Buddhism primarily found in the Himalayan Regions of Asia. The retreat includes group and individual practice sessions, daily teachings and study sessions and interviews with teachers. Together we will investigate some of the Vajrayana’s key features, such as:

Reverence, as a stance of profound appreciation and willingness to be transformed by the power of sacred view, meditation, devotion, and action.

Vajrayana View: Why do we practice the Vajrayana – what is unique and powerful about these techniques and how can we make the most of them?

Vajrayana Meditation: Practices of arising, dissolving, and resting in our own inherent nature.

Understanding the Six Bardos in the context of the Vajrayana.

Outer, inner, secret, and innermost secret retreat. How do we create the conditions for engaging in sacred world, whether we are practicing being in retreat with a group, alone, or in our daily lives?

Study sessions will focus on The Words of My Perfect Teacher by Paltrul Rinpoche.

This retreat is open to anyone with a current Vajrayana practice. If you have a question about your eligibility, please email Lopon Liz at (contact info blocked).

Wonderwell Mountain Refuge strives to offer retreats in a manner that is non-cost prohibitive and inclusive to persons of all means. If the full retreat cost would create an undue financial burden, we encourage persons to apply for scholarship and work-study. Whether one needs to request aid to defer a large or small portion of the cost of a retreat so as not to incur a financial burden, we strive to accommodate you. This link will take you to information about our work-study and scholarship possibilities. Depending on the type of work that you do, you may be eligible for a Hemera Contemplative Fellowship.

Why Retreat?

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

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

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.
