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, and build and deepen connections and friendships with others. 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. You may also like to visit this page for all Triratna retreats.
