Retreats

A retreat is a rare opportunity to put aside the habits, concerns and demands of your everyday life and live in a different way. It is an opportunity to relax, refresh, inspire and challenge yourself. For some it is a get-away from the busyness of modern life; for others it is a life-changing experience they never forget. A retreat is also a good way to meet new friends. You can deepen your meditation, cultivate mindfulness, and learn about Buddhism. Find out more about life on retreat here.

We run small weekend retreats for 10-15 people which are an especially good way to try going on retreat for the first time. Each year we also have a big sangha retreat where up to 80 of us gather at Adhisthana and feel the confidence of collective practice. All our retreats are ideal for anyone who has done an introductory course with us, or several months of drop-in classes.

Those who go on retreat regularly find qualities of calm, energy, resilience and creativity pervading the rest of their lives, and find their spiritual practice naturally deepening. There are many more opportunities at Triratna retreat centres – goingonretreat.com is your portal!
