Longer Retreats

Longer Retreats

If you want to find the meaning, stop chasing after so many things.  – Ryokan


Intro Weekends Regulars' Weekends Longer Retreats Solitary Retreats

Our long retreats provide the best conditions for deepening your practice of meditation and Buddhism. We go on retreat not to escape our lives, but to uncover the meaning and depth that lies below the surface of our ordinary consiousness. Retreats like this can often be a life-changing experience. On longer retreats we live together practising meditation and Buddhism, eating together and helping each other out with simple chores along with plenty of time for walks and rest.
