A retreat is a great way to take your meditation practice to the next level. On retreat, we live simply with others in an environment geared towards stillness and meditation. Away from everyday distractions, our mind can become quiet, deepening our sense of community and our understanding of the Buddha’s teachings. Retreat leaders skillfully guide us into deeper waters, where we get to know ourselves more deeply. A retreat can last a weekend, a week, or even longer.

Retreat centres run programmes aimed at different levels of experience, so you can find a retreat that is suitable for you. Why not take the plunge?
