About This Event

A summer week of practice at beautiful Sky Lake. Weekthun is an intensive, week-long meditation retreat for new and experienced meditators interested in deepening their mindfulness-awareness.

This program’s contemplative study and practice is based on the book “The Truth of Suffering and The Path of Liberation” by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. In the teachings of the Buddha, understanding suffering as the path is the key to liberation. This program will include both guided group contemplation of this foundational teaching, one-to-one meditation instruction, and experiential mindfulness-awareness exercises. 

The program will be full of practices carefully designed to cultivate mindfulness-awareness including:

One-on-one meditation instruction

Guided meditations

Movement exercises

Dharma talks from the teacher

Walks through the beautiful Sky Lake woods

Through the week of practice, meditation goes beyond the cushion, with every aspect of daily life becoming a practice of wakefulness and an opportunity to make better friends with ourselves and our world.

Participants are invited to stay for the whole retreat or depart Sunday, July 28th.

Meals will be served Oryoki style. Please purchase these materials for practice.

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.
