Group Retreat Programme 2017-18

Jon Kabat Zinn retreat in the meditation hallIt is important to us to be truly inclusive and welcome all people. We invite you to be in touch if you want to tell us more about how we can welcome you.

Before you book your retreat, we recommend you read through our Frequently Asked Questions and Booking & Cancellation information.


Dana: The teaching and service from the teachers, coordinators and volunteers at Gaia House is offered freely. Our retreat rates cover the cost of food, accommodation and teachers’ travel expenses. They also contribute to our management and support costs, including administration and maintenance of our building and grounds.

During your retreat you will be invited to offer Dana (a donation) for the support of Gaia House and the teachers who have guided your retreat or practice. The tradition of Dana has sustained the passing on of Buddhist teachings for around 2,500 years. Before booking a retreat please read: Dana – The Buddhist Tradition of Generosity.
