Deepening Experience

We have a range of varied group meditation guided retreats scheduled throughout the year that are an ideal way to gain real experience of certain practices, or deepen current experience. Some sessions are guided with teachings, but the emphasis is on meditation.  What makes a retreat ‘a retreat’ is the boundaries we put on our activities of body, speech and mind.
 
We offer a limited amount of dormitory style accommodation on some retreats. Contact info@meditationinbristol.org

There is normally no charge for most retreats but donations are gratefully accepted.
