Rivendell Buddhist Retreat Centre, UK
Teaching Buddhism, Buddhist meditation and yoga retreats, in Sussex, South-East England.
Rivendell is run by the Triratna Buddhist Community, to teach meditation and to explore the practical application of Buddhism to life in the modern world.
We run different Buddhism, meditation and yoga retreats suitable for a range of levels of experience. You don't have to consider yourself a Buddhist, or have any intention of becoming one, to benefit from our retreats.
We are situated on the edge of a small East Sussex village, the retreat centre itself is housed in a former Victorian rectory. Surrounding the house is a lovely garden, beyond that lie fields and woodland. This provides an ideal peaceful environment to learn to meditate, practice yoga or to find out about Buddhism.
If you wish to learn to meditate then our introductory events page will tell you which retreat or course is for you. An introduction to meditation is also given on some of our Yoga and other retreats. See our calendar which lists Rivendell’s full programme of retreats and courses.
