Lama Pema Tenzin

About The Teacher

Early Years

Lama Pema Tenzin is a Vajrayana artist from Bhutan, a beautiful and environmentally pristine Buddhist country, high up in the Himalayan Mountains. Lama Kunzang Garwang was also an artist and he recognized Pemas artistic abilities first. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche asked Buli Tulku Rinpoche for a recommendation and Buli Tulku Rinpoche recommended Lama Pema, who was also endorsed by the Royal family of Bhutan. That year Lama Pema came to Chagdud Gompa for just a few months, speaking no English and a little bit homesick. As Lama Pema became more comfortable in his surroundings here, learned a little english and made some friends, he has made the US his second home, bringing Vajrayana art and goodwill to such exotic places as Tennessee and Florida.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
