Retreats in the countryside

Retreats offer the chance to break out of our usual routines and get a fresh perspective on our life. We can explore meditation and Buddhism much more deeply than is usually possible in an evening class at the Buddhist Centre.  These retreats are suitable for anyone who has already completed our Introduction to Buddhist meditation course, unless specified otherwise. Directions to the retreat location and information about the retreat are sent out upon booking or shortly before the retreat date.

All residential weekend retreats listed below are £100 (or £65 concessionary rate). This includes food and lodging. Payments can be made directly to the Buddhist Centre office by cash or cheque (made payable to the Birmingham Buddhist Centre), or by an online transfer (please contact the office for details).
Please Note that booking for these retreats is essential and a non-refundable £40 deposit is required to secure a place. To book, please contact the Buddhist Centre Office by email: or phone: 0121 449 5279.
