About us

Course Description

The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India. This epic is part of the Hindu history, the Kurukshetra War, and the fates of the Kauravas and the Pandavas. The Mahabharata contains much philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four goals of life: dharma (right action), artha (purpose), kama (pleasure), and moksha (liberation). It is a fascinating story encompassing all possible scenarios of karmas, and thus teaching us the most precious lessons.

Among the principal works and stories that are a part of the Mahabharata are the famous teachings of The Bhagavad Gita. In this main philosophical and devotional scripture, Lord Krishna teaches Arjuna about his duty in life providing a “guide to life” .

  • Historical Context of the Mahabharata

  • A description of the main characters including the Kauravas and the Pandavas

  • The Dice Game

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

Retreat Guru's Vision

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.
