Anna Raithel

About us

Anna Raithel first came to Tara Mandala as a summer volunteer, and after completing her B.A. in Religion at Wesleyan University, became a full-time resident. Over the next six years she held many roles including volunteer coordinator, retreat manager, temple manager, and finally as Lama Tsultrim’s executive assistant and tour manager. She also studied Tibetan language and gyaling (Tibetan oboe), coordinated the annual Drubchens, and was the lead umdze (chant leader) and chöpön (ritual arts leader). Wanting to expand her horizons and serve the dharma in a different capacity, she left Tara Mandala in 2015 to pursue an M.B.A. at the University of Oregon, focusing on sustainable business practices. While in school, she interned at Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, a nonprofit spinoff from Google that teaches mindfulness and emotional intelligence to executives and coaches. Anna is currently an apprentice teacher and continues to teach the ritual arts.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
 

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.
