Teaching Buddhism, Buddhist meditation and yoga retreats, in Sussex, South-East England.

Rivendell is run by the Triratna Buddhist Community to teach meditation and help you apply Buddhism to life in the modern world. We offer a range of Buddhist, meditation and yoga retreats for people all levels of experience.

For beginners try our Introductory retreats and yoga retreats. You don't have to consider yourself a Buddhist, or have any intention of becoming one, to benefit from these retreats.

For people already practising meditation and Buddhism within the Triratna Buddhist Community we run retreats aimed to take your practice deeper.
