A retreat is a great opportunity to take a break from our regular routine and create more space
in both our inner and outer lives. Spending time in the countryside, we can connect with
nature and enjoy the positive conditions that arise as we come together as a community,
practising together, sharing meals, sharing talks and sharing walks with others on the retreat.

CHECK BACK HERE for details of the retreat’s theme.

The programme will include talks, meditation, reflection and discussion as well as some
chanting and ritual. Weather permitting, we will also do some meditations outside, including
periods of walking meditation and standing meditation. There will be plenty of free time to
go for walks or chat over a cup of tea with others on the retreat.

We are delighted to be returning to Othona Retreat Centre in Essex.

A camping option is available. You must bring all of your own camping equipment.

Lifts can be arranged. Email us at info@westlondonbuddhistcentre.com.
