The aim of a retreat is to have time away from your normal everyday life, with all its demands and distractions, to explore who you are, and how you are, or perhaps just to be with the way things are for a while. A retreat can be an opportunity for reflecting on your life, exploring the Buddha’s teaching, or deepening a connection with nature. All our retreats are camping retreats on beautiful sites in the South of England.
Living simply, elegantly and close to nature go some way to providing the space for positive change to happen. We use Buddhist practices such as meditation and ritual to help us engage with different aspects of ourselves.
People come to our retreats with all different levels of experience of Buddhism. You don’t have to be a Buddhist for our ‘open’ retreats, on which introductory sessions are provided. The general approach to our retreats is that you are free to join in whatever is useful to you.
