Weekend Meditation Retreat

While for many, the monastic life is not an option, all of us love and need to retreat from the world occasionally. Such retreats allow us to refocus our lives and reawaken parts of ourselves suppressed by the life that we have been living.


Every month, Nan Tien Temple offers that perfect retreat; peace, tranquillity and comfort. Staying overnight  in the wonderful Pilgrim Lodge, you will enjoy healthy vegetarian meals, receive excellent teaching in Buddhist meditation and of course, meditate. 


The program is suitable for all, regardless of background. Beginners are welcome! The cost covers meals, accommodation, materials and teacher's instructions.


Bookings are essential.
