His Holiness the Dalai Lama

About The Teacher

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is a Buddhist monk, scholar, and the temporal and religious leader of the Tibetan people. Since 1959, when the Communist Chinese invaded Tibet, forcing the Dalai Lama into exile, he has emerged as an international statesman for peace. His consistent refusal to adopt the use of violence in Tibets struggle for freedom won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and the respect of the world community. He is recognized internationally as a champion of human rights, an environmentalist, and an advocate of religious tolerance, compassion and personal responsibility.

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.
