About The Teacher

Jewon Jigme Rinpoche, born in Eastern Tibet, grew up and was educated among many of the prominent teachers in the Kagyu lineage. In 1974, during his first visit to Europe, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa designated Jigme Rinpoche as head of Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in Dordogne, France, the central seat of his European activity. In making this appointment, His Holiness said, "In the person of Jigme Rinpoche, I give you my heart." It is in this spirit that Jigme Rinpoche today continues his activity in Europe and in the U.S., traveling extensively, visiting and teaching in the centers, and inspiring all who come in contact with him.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
