Venerable Phra Nick Dhammarato

About The Teacher

As a Buddhist monk in the Theravada lineage since 2005, Venerable Phra Nick has cultivated a very deep meditation practice.

Having practiced with a range of Theravada Buddhist teachers, mainly in the Thai forest tradition, and Mahasi-style Vipassana (Insight) practice, he has done several six month silent Vipassana retreats and currently focuses on Vipassana and Metta (Unconditional Love) practice. He has also carefully studied the Tipitaka (original teachings of the Buddha) as well as modern teachings on Buddhism, meditation, and psychology.

Venerable Phra Nick attends some of the workshops and closely reviews and guides the course design and book.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim
 

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.
