Online Summer Retreat

The Fire of Joy

Sunday 2nd - Sunday 9th August

Free to book

-See full programme below-

How do we flourish in uncertain times? Join us online for an intensive, week-long Summer Retreat. Taking our inspiration from stories of Milarepa, the great 11th Century Tibetan Yogi, we’ll be discovering a wise response to change and adversity and learning to find joy where we least expect it.

The way to make the most of the retreat would be to take the week off work and commit to joining in with everything. If you can’t do that, just come to what you can.

  • Learn meditation from scratch or take your practice further with interactive workshops. 

  • Engage with inspirational talks about the Buddhist vision for life.

  • Explore and discuss meditation and other aspects of practice in small groups with people from across the world.

  • Receive daily emails with tips on how to turn your life into a retreat.
