Maya Lewandowsky

About us

Maya Lewandowsky manifests as a Dharma dancing dakini. She has been studying with teachers Doug Duncan Sensei and Catherine Pawasarat Sensei since 2007. She grew up in Israel where she studied Dharma and explored the nature of consciousness in her early twenties.  “While using dance and theatre to investigate my aliveness there was a realization that I needed to dance beyond “my life”. Meditation was the missing tool. How does one simply be with whatever arises? My deepest meditations have revealed that all the identity associated with being a professional performer, an actress or a woman is simply illusory; a construct of mind. I invite you to explore your illusions in a creative way. My approach to teaching Dharma seeks to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, darkness into hope, uncertainty into vision, greed into generosity, hatred into love and confusion into wisdom through a contemporary and accessible interpretation of ancient teachings.

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.
