About The Teacher

Venerable Gyelse has been interested in Buddhism since the age of 16, but it wasn’t until she was in her 40s that she had the good fortune to meet her Teacher, Geshe Michael Roach. Venerable Gyelse has been a student of Asian Classics Institute and Geshe Michael for over 20 years. She worked, studied, lived and taught at Diamond Mountain University for 6 years and then participated in a three year deep retreat to take her deeper into the teachings. Presently she lives, works and teaches at Diamond Mountain Retreat Center.

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.
