January Sangha Retreat

20th January - 22nd January

The Taste of Freedom – Brixton Open Weekend Retreat

In our lives we can sometimes feel that we are trapped in a mundane and repetitive cycle and long for something different – for freedom. But what is true and lasting freedom, and how do we get a sense of genuine meaning and connection in our life without being ensnared by excess and consumption? A retreat gives us a unique opportunity to directly experience the freedom of mind and heart that develops when we contact a simple life of Buddhist meditation, friendship and communal living.

Over this weekend there will be meditation, talks, discussion and Buddhist ritual, as well as plenty of time to hang out, make friends, read a book or go for a walk in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.

Whether you’re a regular or a newcomer to meditation, coming on our January retreat will bring a fresh perspective and renewed energy for starting the year.

Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd January 2023
At Vajrasana, Suffolk

This retreat will be followed by an optional six-week course starting 25th Jan on The Taste of Freedom, which can be booked separately. On this course we will be working on the themes of the retreat in much more depth, allowing us to activate insights and experiences from the retreat, and giving you the chance to turn your new year into an intensive period of growth and transformation.
