About The Teacher

Stephan has been practicing and teaching the direct approach to spiritual awakening for more than 40 years. Trained for a decade as a Zen Buddhist monk and licensed as a psychotherapist, he has been a pioneer in the integration of Eastern wisdom and Western psychology and in the embodiment of awakened awareness in everyday life. He studied Advaita Vedanta for 10 years with the European master Jean Klein and in 2001 received Dharma transmission (authorization to teach) from Adyashanti, in a lineage dating back to the historical Buddha. His books include Wake Up Now, Beyond Mindfulness, Meditation for Dummies, and Buddhism for Dummies.

Why Retreat?

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

I go on retreat to remember who I really am. And I remember that I am alive, Deryk

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.
