Explore meditation, practice mindfulness and uncover the imagination. For newcomers, or those in their first two years of practice.

How do we move from reactivity to creativity, from passivity to action, from limitation to freedom... and beyond? Using the teachings of the Buddha, reflecting on them and applying them in meditation we will learn to take responsibility for our mind, our behaviour and our life. Come and discover for yourself the potential of the creative mind and how all of the Buddha’s practical teachings have the same taste – the taste of freedom.

Sharing five or ten days with like-minded men and women, the programme will include talks about Buddhism, introduction to Buddhist ritual and periods of silence, as well as plenty of meditation, good vegan food, free time and beautiful countryside. A retreat ideal for newcomers, or those in their first two years of practice.
