“If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.”
( Thích Nhất Hạnh, Being Peace)

Our residential family-friendly  retreat is a wonderful  opportunity to experience the miracle of mindfulness and to taste the joy and peace of practising as a community.

The retreat is open to everyone, complete beginners, experienced practitioners, adults, young adults and families with children.  Children under 3 come free and are  invited to join the retreat under the care of their parent. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ages, sexual orientation,  physical ability, of all faiths, and none.

Alongside the adult programme there are dedicated activities for children, teenagers and young adults (WakeUp ) as well as opportunities for  the whole retreat community to practise together.

The retreat will be led by Sister Annabel Laity and brothers and sisters from Thich Nhat Hanh’s Monastic Communities of Plum Village and the European Institute of Applied Buddhism.

For information on booking, pricing, payment, financial support and any other questions please see our FAQs.
