      Great Scholar!

    Kadam Lucy is one of the most knowledgable and experienced teachers of meditation and Buddhism of which I'm aware. All of her students love and appreciate her skillful presentations of Dharma.

      Living in the Moment

    I was very fortunate to hear Lucy give a free talk on living in the moment at the Kadampa Meditation Center in Baltimore, Maryland last week. Her self deprecating humor and use of straight forward examples from every day life, made her points on the power and serenity of living in the moment and the futility of dwelling on the past or getting anxious about the future, crystal clear; more so than any of the books I have read on this subject.

Why Retreat?

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

Relax & deepen my yoga practice! Kristin

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.
