Men's Intensive Weekend Retreat

Now is the time to book on retreat as the 'new' wears off the New Year. The ever present time to practice is now - in the circumstances of our lives but these circumstances often overwhelm us. To get somewhere we need to go on retreat.

We will be immersing ourselves in the Buddhist Vision, meditation and insight enriching our experience of what life could be. Sharing this experience with others from the CBC then flows back into our lives through our interactions becoming Sangha.

The retreat is open to all men familar with the two main meditation practices we teach; the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana.

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. For the first time, we are offering a residential retreat on a 'dana basis'.

Financially, of course, we will have costs to cover, so we are taking something of a risk! To help give you a guide, each person coming on the retreat will cost approximately £83.

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.
