About This Event

The new science of compassion has found that human beings have a fundamental instinct for kindness, but have developed habits of harshness toward themselves and others. How can this compassion instinct be cultivated? The ancient traditions of Buddhism and Shambhala have found powerful ways of awakening this instinct through practices that build from self-­compassion to resilient compassion for others, including the difficult people in our lives. This retreat introduces several core lovingkindness practices of Naropa University’s Mindful Compassion Training, integrating the new science of compassion with ancient Buddhist and Shambhala meditation.

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.
