About This Event

Discovering the Sacredness of Sense Perceptions through the Werma Sadhana

In some religious traditions, sense perceptions are regarded as problematic, because they arouse worldly desires.  However, in the Shambhala tradition, which is a secular tradition rather than a religious one, sense perceptions are regarded as sacred.  They are regarded as basically good.  They are a natural gift, a natural ability that human beings have.  They are a source of wisdom.

–Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

One of the most provocative teachings in the Werma Sadhana is that our ayatanas, or sense gates, are limitless.  This points to a difference from Buddhist teachings on sense perceptions, and highlights additional skillful means in our Shambhala practice.  This program introduces the profundity of these teachings through Werma practice, talks, and guided sensory exercises drawn from the Buddhist and Shambhala traditions. These practices widen our awareness of the ordinary magic of direct perception.  In this Werma program, we will explore how we might bring these practices into our daily lives as householders with relationships and livelihoods.  The vividly beautiful Casa Werma is a perfect place for exploring these profound teachings.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

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.
