Time:6pm Fri - 3pm Sun
Cost:£155.00 / £95.00 Conc.
Led by:Samudraghosha and Tejasvini
Description:A residential weekend retreat, suitable for anyone, including those new to meditation.
Taking the image of opening doors, we will particularly open inwards through meditations, gentle movement, talks, some group activities and Buddhist ritual. Some of the meditations will be in two separate rooms, one for those familiar with the practices, and the other with more guidance and support given, including an introduction to ritual.

We request all participants to switch off their mobile devices for the whole weekend. A contact number will be available for people who need to get in touch urgently. If reading material is brought, please limit it to a subject connected with meditation or Buddhism.

Do you need a lift? Can you offer lifts? Use this page to help you to arrange lifts with others, post a sticky note of your details for others to contact you and to read other's notes. Double click to add a note. Keep checking back for new notes.

We can offer a limited number of assisted places if your financial circumstances prevent you from going on the retreat. Please contact us allowing a few weeks before the retreat.

Important: the diet is vegetarian/vegan, and the recipes are planned and the food is bought in advance. If you have a food allergy or medical condition requiring a special diet, please email us the details on receipt of your booking confirmation. Its best also to check with the organizer when you arrive.

If you need to arrive slightly late or leave before the end, please consult with the retreat leader now.

Lost property: if you leave something behind, it is important that you talk with the Buddhist Centre first and not the retreat venue.

Retreats are a special event where people enjoy coming together and support one another to practice the Dharma. While every care will be given to all those attending, the Cambridge Buddhist Centre cannot be responsible for the loss of personal possessions, nor look after you appropriately if you fail to disclose important information about your health. If in doubt please consult us now.
