Welcome to the Village!

You don’t have to be a practising Buddhist to come, but a strong interest is encouraged.

Phase I, 3 - 9 August 2018:

Come and build a village with friends and family! On this working retreat, there is the opportunity to put up large structures, create community spaces and nurture an sense of togetherness with the land. We will work in small groups and cook together over open fires. We will explore how to relax and stay open in the midst of activity. There will be daily support meetings, meditation, activities, and time to simply unfold into the land. A beautiful opportunity to practice with your children. Children over 7 welcome.
