Winter Retreat - Newmarket
Winter Retreat- Newmarket
Make the most of this special time in the depths of winter to turn inward, deepen meditation practice and reconnect with your values. In this way, we refresh our aspirations to meditate and live by our values in the new year.
Suitable for those who have been introduced to the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices.
We are unable to offer single rooms on this retreat.
Please note that booking will close on Friday 23rd December.
Our Dana Economy
The Cambridge Buddhist Centre is run as a 'gift economy', for which we use the Sanskrit term dana, meaning 'generosity'. Our Dana Economy, in which everyone contributes what they can for the benefit of all, offers a radical alternative to consumer culture.
Financially, of course, we will have costs to cover. To help give you a guide, each person coming on the retreat will cost £100.
Those leading the retreat do so entirely on the basis of generosity and are not financially remunerated: our motivation is that a retreat can be a transformative, life-changing experience, and we want to make that available to as many people as possible.
Do consider making a donation when you book to cover these costs and, if you are able, consider contributing more so that we are able to offer events and retreats to more people. There will also be a Dana announcement on the retreat.
You will be sent links to the latest Covid precautions that are being undertaken at The Retreat Centre when you make your booking, as well as directions to the Retreat Centre and a link to help you to share lifts.
Dietary and medical needs
All meals are vegan; if you have a food allergy or medical condition requiring a special diet, please enter the details at the checkout.
If you know that you snore, it would also be useful to include this information so that it may be taken into account when allocating rooms.
