About This Event

In one sense the goal of spiritual work is to become increasingly intimate with and expressive of our true nature. Both the tool and the fruit of increasing intimacy with our true nature are to dwell increasingly in a state of simple and precise awareness. This classic, five-night silent retreat is designed to serve the nurturing of this intimacy by providing the space and time for steeping in that awareness.

Each day the retreat will flow from periods of sitting meditation to walking meditation to several periods of yoga practice. The style of yoga offered is known as viniyoga, which is grounded in awareness of breath and of the physical movement that flows out of that awareness. Anyone who can breathe can participate in this yoga. Yoga mats will be provided.

The retreat will include meditation and yoga instruction, Dharma talks, chanting, and group and private meetings with the teachers.

A time of silence in the mountains can be not only a precious refuge from a crazy world, but also a space where we are refined through intimacy and silence. When we sincerely do this work for ourselves, we can’t help but do it for everyone.

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.
