Happy indeed we live, we for whom there are no possessions. Feeders on rapture shall we be, like the gods of Brilliant Light. – The Buddha
A retreat is a rare chance to live in a way far removed from television, tube stations, stress and city strife. It is an opportunity to relax, refresh, inspire and challenge yourself. For some it is a get-away from the business of modern life, for others it is a life-changing experience they never forget. A retreat is also a good way to meet new friends. You can deepen your meditation, cultivate mindfulness, and learn about Buddhism. Find out more about life on retreat here, and our Vajrasana 2016 retreats brochure here.
