About Us

Our vision is to create a retreat centre to help restore and maintain a balance in our daily lives. By offering Buddhist Retreats throughout the year we help people discover their own experience of inner peace through meditation and putting Buddha’s teachings into practice.

Buddhism has a timeless and universal relevance, and can be practised by anyone in any culture, regardless of race, gender or age. Through training in meditation and other Buddhist practices we can improve the quality of our lives by developing inner peace, compassion and wisdom.

 We also offer tailor-made retreats to suit individual requirements be it silent and solitary retreats, yoga and meditation, guided reflection or just a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We also offer an exciting array of small intimate workshops taught by a carefully selected mix of artists, musicians and therapists.
