About This Event

Literally meaning the ‘utmost yoga,’ Ati Yoga (Tibetan: Dzogchen) is the pinnacle of Buddhist Vajrayana practice. It is the most simple, direct and profound path to reveal the primordial wisdom, which is our basic nature.

In this three day practice-centered retreat, Dr. Nida offers Ati Yoga instruction according to Tibet’s great 12th century physician and meditation adept Yuthok Yönten Gönpo’s teachings entitled “The Great Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana of the Great Perfection of Yuthok”.

This year’s program focuses on Ati Yoga preliminary practices and trekchöd, ‘cutting through hardness’ and includes the essential empowerment of the Yuthok Nyingthig cycle of teachings. The text we will study is Dr. Nida’s Mirror of Light: A Commentary on Yuthok’s Ati Yoga.

Why Retreat?

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

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
 

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.
