Buddhafield South East Family Retreat - Spring 2022

Friday 29 April 2022 to Monday 2 May 2022
This event is no longer open for bookings

This retreat will be held in beautiful woods near Herstmonceux in East Sussex, camping among the trees and surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of the season in spring and autumn.

Families as well as adults without children are welcome. There is a focus on little-and-often practice with meditation, talks, discussion groups, rituals and, most importantly, play. We explore how to weave dharma into our practice of being together.

Activities for the children are provided by the land, the imagination and the community as a whole.

This event is fully catered. We ask that you bring your own cutlery, crockery and mugs for everyone in your party. We provide hot water for washing up after meals.

Things to note

  • We have an extensive Retreat FAQ page here. Please read this thoroughly and, if you have a question that isn’t answered, get in touch. 
  • There is very limited vehicles space at this event. Please add a vehicle pass to your booking so that we can keep track of numbers. The site cannot accommodate live-ins that are bigger than approximately 6.5m x 2.5m. If you can car share, get a lift or public transport, please do. The nearest train station is Pevensey Bay but the service is infrequent and does not run at all on Sundays. It is often better to get a train to Polegate instead and then we will share onward travel information by either bus or pick up closer to the event.
