You will learn the Vipassana meditation technique and be given guidance on how to incorporate it into your daily life.
This is a 10 day non residential meditation retreat that goes at the pace that is right for you and is based on your needs.
You arrive at our centre each morning and leave each afternoon (please see timings below). A delicious vegan lunch is provided.
We have all the meditation materials necessary.

The retreat is based on donation. Your place is paid for by someone's donation and you will have the opportunity to donate so that someone else may benefit from a future retreat.
It takes at least 10 days to learn the basic technique. The rules are designed to help you to learn it. The more you are able to follow them during and outside official sitting, the more progress you will make in learning and benefitting from it. Continuity of practice is key.
1. No alcohol, drugs, cigarettes or sexual activities.
2. Avoid eating meat and fish, caffeine, work, the telephone, computers and social media.
3. Talking should be kept to an absolute minimum (i.e you may speak to the teacher but not to the other participants during the retreat).
