People of Colour Big Weekend

3 – 6 May | led by Suryagupta, Bodhilila, Amaragita and Aryavacin

A unique opportunity to spend a long weekend surrounded by nature, meditating, relaxing and connecting with other people of colour.  Chat to new and old friends over a cuppa or a walk in the Malvern hills, and with opportunities to go deeper in periods of silence.

The retreat is led by a wonderful team of experienced practitioners who will share their wisdom through talks, led-discussions and guided meditations, and this year will feature an exciting international guest speaker joining us from overseas.

People of Colour events are gatherings for people who come from the richly diverse lived experiences of these intentionally welcomed identities: Black, and people of colour inclusive of Asian, South East Asian, Latinx, Arab / Middle Eastern, biracial, mixed heritage, and multiracial. The focus this year will be on liberation: opening up the mind and heart to the potential that lies beyond.

Sign up, come along, connect and feed your inspiration.

If you are unable to afford a space, please get in touch about a bursary.

Note that if you would like to camp you’re very welcome to. Please mention this in your booking form under the accommodation section, and bring all your own equipment for camping.
