Meditation day and half-day courses, retreats, and special events are a wonderful opportunity to take some time out of your busy week, relax and dive deeper into teachings and benefits of meditation and mindful living. In general they run at the weekends, are open to everyone and include guided meditations, talks, a vegetarian lunch when it is a whole day event and plenty of time to chat and relax.

Take a break from busy daily life to enjoy a relaxing and uplifting retreat at Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre in Pocklington in the Yorkshire Wolds.

The retreat is open to everyone.  It is a wonderful way to have a meaningful holiday.  We will develop our inner wealth of compassion and wisdom for the benefit of ourself and others.
