About This Event

Retreat Full for Waitlist: (contact info blocked)

Part of the challenge of understanding and then cultivating abiding happiness involves – like a doctor or mechanic – diagnosing the question of happiness/unhappiness correctly so that we can apply the proper medicine or intervention. Even more strongly, the Buddha taught that we can learn the fundamentals of his teachings but that we each, ultimately, have to be our own doctor, our own mechanic. We have to learn how to apply the deepest teachings to our own lives, our own strengths and limitations, our own spiritual practice. We have to learn our own unique ways of remembering and honoring our own deepest wisdom.

This 3 Day non-residential meditation retreat will combine periods of silent sitting and walking meditation with the relational meditation practice of Insight Dialogue (ID), a practice of speaking and listening that brings together the deep wisdom teachings of Buddhism with our everyday relationship. ID has the same traditional roots and purposes as silent meditation: mindfulness, compassion and liberating insight while investigating together our lived present moment (relational) experience.

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.
