Urban Retreats
  • Register


During a retreat we reduce our normal worldly activities and concentrate for a period of time on developing spiritual qualities and peaceful minds. Retreat offers us the opportunity to take a break from the busyness of everyday city life. Everyone is welcome to come to any or all of the sessions. Sessions are free and unguided.

Saturday 16 - Sunday 17 April

The purpose of this retreat is to deepen our experience of refuge. The foundation of the Buddhist way of life is to go for refuge - to Buddha, to guide us along the spiritual path to enlightenment; to Dharma (Buddha’s teachings), the opponent to delusions, the source of all our suffering; and to Sangha (those practising Buddha’s teachings) to inspire us, show a good example and to help us along the path to inner peace.

There are three sessions a day. Each session lasts for one and a half hours and consists of chanted prayers sung in English. There is no charge for any of the sessions.
