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.
A weekend retreat is a precious opportunity to have time and space to clear your mind and to see things differently. This retreat is open to anyone; you do not need to have learnt to meditate. For newcomers, there will be full instruction in meditation. For those who have learnt meditation, further guidance and support will be given.

Taking the image of opening doors, we will be opening inwards; through meditations and gentle movement and outwards; through talks, group activities and Buddhist ritual.

A weekend retreat is a special opportunity to minimise distraction and simply your life. We request that all participants take this opportunity 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.
