About us

DaRa Williams is a Guiding Teacher at Insight Meditation Society (IMS)  and has practiced meditation for over 25 years. She teaches retreats at New York Insight, IMS and Spirit Rock Meditation Center. A therapist for over 30 years, DaRa is dedicated to working at the intersection of social justice, spirituality and authentic expression of well being.  She is committed to the healing of inter-generational trauma and social disconnection and seeks to integrate the natural driving force to be well with the tools and understanding to make it so.  She is a Focusing Oriented Therapist and is a Coordinating Trainer of Aboriginal Focusing Oriented Complex Trauma Therapy. “The dharma practiced through vipassana and metta mediation serves to transform suffering into the awakened heart.  My call to teach is a response to  the trauma of oppression and its many vicissitudes,where the chains around our minds and hearts can be broken through and dissolved. Awareness, wisdom and the compassionate heart become the vehicle for freedom and transforming lives in the here and now.”

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.
