Calendar of Retreats and Events

Our programme for 2018 is now open for booking. Most events are Order retreats, though there are a few open to Mitras and people familiar with Triratna meditation practices. Unless stated otherwise, events are mixed gender. You can click on individual events to find out more and to book.

We ask for a booking fee of £52 for weekends and £78 for longer events. We are sorry but we cannot refund this booking fee or transfer it for another event under any circumstances. If sending a postal booking, please send a cheque with the booking form, made payable to Adhisthana.

We are working on improving our bookings system. Currently you will receive a confirmation from PayPal, but not directly from Adhisthana, until we send out an email two weeks before the event – for now, if you require confirmation, you can contact the office.

Click here to see an information sheet about coming on events at Adhisthana, including information about arrival and departure times for week and weekend events.

We also hold events at Adhisthana other than those on this calendar; such as local Sangha retreats, Breathworks Training retreats, and various other meetings and gatherings.
