All of humanity's problems stem from our inability to sit quietly in a room alone.
– Blaise Pascal
After you have been meditating for some time, you might feel ready to go on solitary retreat. Solitude provides an extraordinary opportunity to explore your mind; these retreats are often highly significant and life-affirming experiences. If you’re unsure of whether a solitary retreat is for you or not, we would advise talking with your teachers or friends.
We have two identical huts at our retreat centre, Vajrasana - Ryokan and Han Shan. Each hut costs £210 (full) or £180.00 (concession) per week, running Friday to Friday, with basic foods provided. Click here for more information (including food list, facilities and travel instructions).
To book, please check the available dates below to check the week you'd like is free and if it is contact the Bookings Manager (Oli) at firstname.lastname@example.org providing a daytime phone number and when you'd like to book. He will then contact you to take payment. Please note that a booking is not confirmed until the full amount has been received, and that we do not take deposits for solitary retreats. Please read the booking conditions at the bottom of this page before proceeding with your booking.
Solitary retreats must be paid for in full at the time of booking. If a solitary retreat is cancelled more than one month before the start date a full refund will be given less a £10 administration fee. If cancelled more than two weeks before the start date a 50% refund will be given. If cancelled less than two weeks before the start date no refund will be given.
