About The Teacher

Ami (Amitabhan: Ahh – Me – Tah – Bhan) shares his message and music at retreats, conferences, events with spiritual teachers, and at concerts throughout the US and into Canada.

He began his meditation practice at the Vipassana centers created by S.N. Goenka which lead to a pilgrimage to India in the early 90’s.   Interested in universal truth, had the good fortune to spend time in the company of many mystics and sages from various traditions, and was particularly moved by the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and his line of disciples.

As a songwriter, Ami has released 4 CD’s of original music and has won several songwriting awards.  Appearing at up to 100 events per year, he has toured extensively and especially loves sharing songs/chants that connect audiences with the peace that lives within.

His silent retreats are rooted in the practice of meditation, and also use sound (toning) and simple chants to soften the heart and bring the mind to a state of rest.

Why Retreat?

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

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer

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.
