Weekend retreats are held at suitable rural locations, usually in autumn, spring and early summer.
New surroundings provide the element of a fresh start and an immediacy which is conducive to dropping habitual mind-sets. They also provide space for larger groups of say, 20+ people.
For these you do need to have experience of our tradition and be comfortable with sitting still in meditation for 30min, around eight times a day. We follow a schedule as a group.
There is also teaching and opportunities to ask questions in the group, or privately.
Bookings are taken approximately a month in advance. We provide a guideline for level of donation as we hope to cover the expense of accommodation and meals. However, no one with a tight budget is excluded. See calendar for any upcoming external retreat.
Please contact the Priory with all enquiries.
