Retreats


We have a rich program of events beyond our usual drop-in classes, including regular courses, retreats, festival days and other events.

Courses

Doorways to Liberation - Meditation Foundation Course

Doorways to Liberation - Meditation Foundation Course

Learn simple tools for living a more effective, happier life.

This four-week course can give you the skills and tools needed to develop an effective meditation practice. We will explore how through learning simple exercises and meditations we can unlock clarity, confidence and stillness in our everyday lives.

Each week the course is supported by handouts, home practice and simple, straightforward teaching, meaning it is suitable for newcomers, or those with meditation experience who are wanting to re-establish their daily practice on a firm foundation.

Four Tuesday evenings from 19th June, 7.15pm to 9.45pm.

Led by Maitrinara and team. Booking essential.

Course held downstairs at the Brixton Pound Cafe, 77 Atlantic Road, SW9 8PU

Retreats

We currently hold two retreats a year at two different retreat centres in the UK, Vajrasana Retreat Centre in Suffolk, and Rivendell Retreat Centre in Sussex. Join our mailing list to receive details of our upcoming retreats.

Upcoming Retreat Dates:

to . Brixton and Bury Retreat at Vajrasana

"In the seen there will be just the seen, in the heard there will be just the heard, in the imagined just the imagined, in the cognized just the cognized"

Get away and pause at Vajrasana, a beautiful purpose built retreat centre in Suffolk. Join us for our joint Bury St Edmunds / Brixton weekend retreat in July, which is the perfect opportunity to let go, and be absorbed into nature.

On this retreat we will be celebrating and explore the Dharma, the profound and wise teachings of the Buddha, leading to liberation of the mind and body. On the retreat there is plenty of space for friendship, clarity and for touches of a deeper Reality to emerge as well. Book now

More information to follow, booking available two months before retreat.

Many other open retreats are held throughout the year by other Triratna groups and retreat centres. See goingonretreat.com for listings and joining information.
