The Six Realms: Styles of Imprisonment or Modes of Liberation

About This Event

These realms exist as emotionally charged states of mind that color our experience, including our approach to spiritual practice. As human beings, we are constantly creating worlds: civilizations, religions, families, relationships, and moods. In this retreat, we will look at how the six realms manifest in our appreciation of the path and how they appear in our practice of zazen and in our dreams. We will work on our dreams as a group, giving us an opportunity to attend to the process of creating the realms within us and between us.

      not my cup of tea

    Did a month long retreat here. Was not impressed. They promote themselves as authentic and also environmental. I saw pressure treated wood being burned, wet lands being damaged, and a blatent disregard for the precepts with alot of verbal abuse directed at people who dared to question the morality of any questionable activity. Ive been to buddhist monasteries befor and always found the monks to be compassionate and humble. Arrogence was rampant here. Just my 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.
