About

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.

Costs

We have 3 rates:

  • Supporter – for those who can afford it and want to help us keep the other ticket prices down – £15
  • Standard – £12
  • Concession – for those unable to pay more – £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 go to the Eventbrite page for the event.  The link will be in the email sent to the announcement list and also on the web page for the event – see the home page.

Practicalities

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.
