retreat centres in area of London

Post by Khemadhammo Bhikkhu » Sat Jan 16, 2010 6:35 am

In the month of July, our wat is planning to organize a retreat in the area of London. Since we planning it a bit late, it is a bit hard to find a good retreat centre where we could organize it. Any suggestions for a good place? We expect about 20 people. (Our wat doesn't have a retreat centre of its own yet.)

Dear Ven Khemadhammo Bikkhu,

We have meditation classes at Thames Buddhist Vihar (selsdon). The committee organised retreats by renting out the FWBO centre in suffolk and also a christian nunnery in Bromley. Here are some more options:" onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;

The organisers will have to call around and compare facilities and prices. It is best done a year in advance but if you are lucky you may find a place!

wishing the best of luck!
