New Year Retreat 2024/25

This retreat is suitable for those who have a regular meditation practice and who regularly attend retreats, a centre or a group within the context of the Triratna Buddhist Community. You will also need to be familiar with, and happy to participate in, Triratna Buddhist devotional practice and ritual (puja), be comfortable with extended periods of sitting meditation and the possibility on some retreats of periods spent in silence.

Retreat information

Join Sanghasiha, Sraddhamalini and friends for seven days over the New Year. Expect periods of silence alongside periods of celebrating the turning of the year. There will be time for reflection and the setting of intentions as we move into a new year. The change will be marked by ritual and a deeper connection with the land as the days begin to grow longer. Expect poetry, mantra,
guided and meditative walks, meditation and ritual.

Sanghasiha’s practice is characterised by a deep love of the natural world and has a particular interest in sound meditation which will be explored on this retreat.

Sraddhamalini is an experienced yoga teacher, trained architect and lover of the written word in both poetry and prose.
