Residential Retreats

Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland offers introductory retreats, weekend and 3-day retreats, dharma weekends, and week retreats.

Please note: It is necessary to attend an introductory retreat before applying to the Abbey to come and stay at other times, although if you are a member of Nottingham Zen Serene Reflection Meditation group (Zen/SRM) or another Order of Buddhist Contemplatives (OBC) meditation group or have received meditation instruction at another temple of the Order this may not be required.
