About This Event

We can make ourselves miserable or we can make ourselves strong. The amount of effort is the same.

* * *

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing.

~~Ani Pema Chodron

This retreat is for women to come together in a beautiful setting surrounded by lush gardens to experience deep meditation practice, sacred community and creative expression. We will have the opportunity to connect deeply with ourselves with the aspiration to return home refreshed with the strength, passion and personal alignment to meet these challenging times with an open heart and mind.

The program will included extended periods of sitting meditation and silence, teachings and discussion, circle practice, movement, ritual and creative exercises drawing on the five elements to help us settle deeply into ourselves and community.

This program is for women who are looking to reconnect to themselves, find their voice, and ignite their passion. Women who want to listen deeply to themselves and others. Women who want to experience freedom of expression without judgment. Women who want to connect with nature, their bodies, their heart and others who are on a journey of waking up.  Women who want to let go of what is in the way of their inner truth and release old stories and old patterns.

This retreat is open and there are no prerequisites. We will be creating safe space for women practitioners of all identities and gender non-binary practitioners.

The retreat will meet the requirements of practice and study for a Shambhala weekthun.

For those on the Vajrayana path, it will include the option of a daily session of Ngondro or Sadhana practice in the sacred place where Chogyam Trungpa received the Werma Sadhana.

This program is taught in English. Spanish interpretation will be made available for participants whose first language is Spanish. Please register early and let us know if that is true for you.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
