Retreats

Tree Blossom

Getting away form the distractions and busyness of daily life enables one to engage more fully with meditation, and meditating several times a day means that the benefits of meditation can accumulate and go deeper. A retreat offers excellent conditions in which to explore meditation and Buddhism, to find the space to get to know oneself better, and to break old habits, sometimes making a dramatic breakthrough.

We organise a few weekend retreats throughout the year, usually open to people who have already learned the meditation practices we teach. Contact us for further details. We are also connected with a number of retreat centres in the UK, which offer a range of different kinds of retreats:
