We normally hold weekend retreats once or twice a year, at retreat centres in various parts of the country. These are a chance to unwind from daily life, practice meditation together and to hear inspiring talks on Buddhist teachings. In-person retreats have been on hold for the past year or so because of the coronovirus restrictions but we are hoping to run our next retreat in August.
A Summer Weekend Retreat

Friday 13th - Sunday 15th August


If you have some experience of meditation, do join us for a weekend retreat at Rivendell, our beautiful retreat centre in the Sussex countryside.
We invite you to get a taste of a different way of being when away from your usual activities and concerns. Imagine a whole weekend without social media, emails or television! You will have the opportunity to meditate a little more than usual and get some useful input into your practice as well as learning something about leaving behind our limited views of ourselves and maybe having a glimpse of a new way of being. As well as meditation, there will be some short talks, discussion and Buddhist ritual.
Accommodation is in shared rooms and all meals are vegetarian and usually delicious! There will be some light work duties such as washing up but time also for walks and relaxation.
The total cost is £140.00 (concessions available) for the weekend and we are normally able to offer lifts from the Southampton area. The weekend begins at 6pm on the Friday and will finish around 3pm on the Sunday afternoon.

 This retreat is now full but please contact us if you would like to be on a waiting list
