Retreats and Seminars

The Vision

As well as leading retreats at some of our established retreat venues, I also run small seminars and retreats in Cambridge with Vijayamala, keeping numbers down to seven or eight people apart from us. These small numbers give us the opportunity to explore themes and practise together in a way tailored to your needs and interests, and to get to know you in more depth than is possible on a larger retreat.

We’re taking a year out in 2017 from these small retreats, to concentrate on writing projects and leading larger retreats. (See our teaching schedules here.) We currently intend to start another round of retreats in 2018. 

Whether you’re a group or individual wanting to book or just to find out more, please feel free to contact us.

Booking and Other Practicalities

These weeks will be held in Cambridge with accommodation for 6 or 7 people in double rooms. Vijayamala has taken on mortgage costs in order to have enough space to run the seminars so there will be a facility charge of ‚¤200 per week.   This is for the use of the facilities and food, but the teaching will be given on a dana (donation) basis.  There may also be a non-residential option for locals or those who can find somewhere to stay locally, provided we have filled enough residential slots to cover the costs.

To book, or for further information, please email You will then be sent details about how to make a deposit (minimum £50) to secure your place.

It would be very helpful if you could also let us know of any dietary requirements when you book.  Unfortunately we don’t currently have any disabled facilities.
