About us

Erik Jampa Andersson is a practitioner and instructor of Traditional Tibetan Medicine and the Yuthok Nyingthik. He is one of the few westerners to have completed a comprehensive education in the Gyu-zhi (Four Medical Tantras), an earth terma of Traba Ngönshe, as well as clinical training in Tibetan herbalism, dietetics, and manual therapies.

Why Retreat?

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

Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
