Retreats

On retreat, we have the opportunity to contact what is most vital and profound in ourselves and to experience a life that expresses this. Whether through study, meditation or the company of friends, a retreat is where you can take your practice deeper.

Going For Refuge Retreat
The Transcendental Principle
An intensive study of the first chapter of Sangharakshita’s magnum opus, A Survey of Buddhism, is a fundamental part of preparing to join the Order. The purpose of the study is to deepen one’s practical understanding of the Dharma – the basic doctrines and teachings of the Buddha, such as conditioned co-production, the three marks of conditioned existence, the four noble truths and the noble eightfold path.
