About us

When we decide to undertake formal meditation, we usually separate ourselves from our fast-forward, distracted lives, sit down with our best posture, calm our breath, and embark on a journey through the landscape of our minds.  As Buddhists, we meditate according to the sacred lineage transmissions that we have received, establishing our spiritual intention at the beginning and closing our practice by dedication of the merit at the end. For centuries meditation masters have gained superb accomplishment within this framework of good beginning, middle and end.

So, why doesn’t our own personal practice go splendidly in each session? Why is the landscape of mind sometimes so rocky and harsh? Or, flat and boring? Or, filled with seductive pleasures that disappear like mirages when we stand up from our meditation? And, if our meditation itself is frustrating or rote, what can we integrate in daily activities?

The title of these teachings come from a from guidance Khadro received from her teacher, Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, in a dark moment of a long retreat: “When we meditate, it is like rain falling on a mountain. All kinds of plants blossom, both medicinal and poisonous. The practitioner’s awareness allows them to appear, but without the grasping of hope and fear.”

Chagdud Khadro will guide contemplation and meditation, and discussions about integration of meditation and daily life. In this stressful world, we who have the opportunity of Buddhist teachings and practice really must dedicate ourselves to embodying compassion and luminous wisdom, and thus coming closer to the happiness that we wish for all living beings.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
