This residential family-friendly retreat over the Spring Bank Holiday, on the beautiful campus of Old Swinford School near Birmingham, will be a wonderful opportunity to experience the miracle of mindfulness and to taste the joy and peace of practising as a community.
The retreat will be led by Sister Annabel Laity and Brother Phap Lai, with brothers and sisters from Thich Nhat Hanh’s Monastic Communities of Plum Village and the European Institute of Applied Buddhism.
The retreat is open to everyone, complete beginners, experienced practitioners, adults, young adults and families with children. Children under 3 come free and are invited to join the retreat under the care of their parent. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ages, sexual orientation, physical ability, of all faiths, and none.
Alongside the adult programme there are dedicated activities for children and teenagers as well as opportunities for the whole retreat community to practise together.
