About pages – FAQA typical day retreatBooking and PaymentSitting Groups

We are a small group of people who organise a number of day retreats in Cambridge, led by teachers who also teach at Gaia House. The meditations are in the insight tradition.

Day retreats offer a chance to practice meditation and mindfulness in a supportive environment. They include alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation, and the teacher provides guidance through meditation instruction, a Dharma (teaching) talk, and a question and answer session. Beginners are offered additional instruction and assistance.  For experienced meditators the day is an opportunity to refresh and deepen practice. The retreats are normally held in silence.


Cost: £12 on the day or £10 in advance (+ teacher Dana). Concessions (students, unwaged, retired) £7

Please be aware that the registration fee only covers running costs and travelling expenses.  Teachers rely on the financial generosity of retreatants for their living; there will be an opportunity to offer contributions (dana) on the day.

To book in advance you need the booking form for the event. The form will be sent to you if you are on the email list, or you can email cambridgeinsight@gmail.com to ask for a copy.


Please bring your own cushion or stool and mat, if desired, (there are plenty of chairs), and a packed lunch (tea and coffee will be provided).  If coming by car, Park and Ride is a way to avoid difficult and expensive parking in Cambridge.
