About this event

Take an inward journey to let go of the past and to reduce worrying about the future. Ajahn Brahm will be leading this retreat .

Live under the stars, amongst the trees and be in touch with yourself and nature. Vegetarian meals will be provided. Each room has an attached shower, sink and toilet. Please clean up before leaving, 

This is an 8-precept silent retreat for people with PRIOR meditation experience. 

If you don't think you can't not speak for 9 days, you feel paranoid, or have lots of fears about the retreat - this is NOT the retreat for you. Do join a different retreat instead.

SILENCE is to be observed in all areas of the retreat centre including inside the cottages and your room.

Participants will be assigned single ensuite rooms in mixed sex cottages. This being a silent retreat, requests to be accommodated in the same cottage as friends or relatives, or specific rooms will NOT be entertained except for medical reasons. 

CHORES

Everyone has to pitch in to do chores: preparation of food, cleaning the dining hall and kitchen, sweeping the corridors, cleaning the toilets etc. If you are not used to doing the chores, this is an opportunity to learn a new skill.
