Led by:Retreat team (see below)*
Description:A residential weekend retreat for those who have learnt to meditate. *Led by Viryajyoti, Arthasiddhi, Sanghaketu, Tejasiddhi and Dharmanatha.
Spiritual development is likened to the growth of a beautiful plant - it grows when supportive conditions are present; sun light, water, a seed... when we create the conditions in our minds and in our lives growth will happen.

The retreat team comprises Viryajyoti and Arthasiddhi, our two Mitra Convenors and leaders of Buddhism Level 2 and the Thursday night drop-in. Plus, Sanghaketu, Tejasiddhi, Dharmanatha and Padmajata, who lead outreach group meetings in Peterborough, Milton Keynes and King's Lynn.

Important: the diet is vegetarian/vegan, and the recipes are planned and the food is bought in advance. If you have a food allergy or medical condition requiring a special diet, please email us the details on receipt of your booking confirmation. Its best also to check with the organizer when you arrive.

If you need to arrive slightly late or leave before the end, please consult with the retreat leader now.

Lost property: if you leave something behind, it is important that you talk with the Buddhist Centre first and not the retreat venue.

Retreats are a special event where people enjoy coming together and support one another to practice the Dharma. While every care will be given to all those attending, the Cambridge Buddhist Centre cannot be responsible for the loss of personal possessions, nor look after you appropriately if you fail to disclose important information about your health. If in doubt please consult us now.
