People of Colour Retreat 2022

26th August - 2nd September

People of Colour Retreat – 26th August – 2nd September 2022

Join us for our ‘big’ summer People of Colour residential retreat in the heart of the Suffolk countryside! Led by Suryagupta, Bodhilila and the POC Team.

Whether you’ve been on retreat before, or it’s your first time, our People of Colour retreats provide a unique opportunity to connect with others, create a sense of community and discover your own path towards freedom.

Open to newcomers and those who have been practising for some time. You are welcome to join just for the weekend (Friday 26 to Sunday 28 Aug) or, even better, stay for the full week (Friday 26 Aug to Friday 2 Sept) to go deeper.

A chance for people of colour to gather in large numbers and create an intensive environment for the practice of meditation and communal exploration of the Dharma. This retreat will include several days of silence, wisdom teachings and one-to-one meditation reviews. 

Book now here!

Full Week Option 

The retreat will start with dinner at 6.30pm on Friday 26th Aug and end at 12pm on Friday 2nd Sep.

Weekend Option

This part of the retreat will start with dinner at 6.30pm on Friday 26th Aug and end at 3pm on Sunday 28th Aug.


We provide an optional return coach from the LBC to Vajrasana, which you can add for an extra £50 when you book. Alternatively you can read about other ways to get to Vajrasana here.

If you’re not in a position to give the concession rate, get in touch with bookings@lbc.org.uk.

If there are no places left, you can email contact@lbc.org.uk and ask to be put on a list to be notified if places become available. Please put the name and dates of the retreat in the subject line.

Our retreat centre is in full use, so please note that this means you will be sharing rooms in the accommodation blocks. In order to minimise the risk of Covid-19 on the retreat, we require you to test yourself twice before you come: i) three days before the retreat starts and ii) before leaving home on the day of the retreat. We will be asking for verbal confirmation of your test result before you board the coach or, if you’re making your own way there, as you arrive at Vajrasana.
