Description:This retreat is open to young people, aged 18 to 35."Not by hatred are hatreds ever pacified here (in the world). They are pacified by love. This is the eternal law."- The Buddha
On this weekend retreat, through periods of meditation, reflection and ritual, we will explore what it means to live our lives in the light of this timeless truth, all within in the spirit of friendship. By connecting more deeply with ourselves and others we learn to embrace the world with a fearless and open heart.

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.
