Yellowave Beach Sports Clubhouse (venue, map & directions), 299 Madeira Dr, Brighton and Hove, Brighton BN2 1EN
In this relaxing 1/2 day mini meditation retreat we will be learning how to use meditation on the mind, known as Mahamudra meditation, to experience greater peace, clarity, and well-being. Derived from the Buddhist Mahamudra tradition, the meditations will lead you on a voyage of exploration of your mind through which you can discover your own inner potential for lasting peace and happiness. Through training in Mahamudra meditation, we can discover our potential for genuine peace of mind and happiness and find inner freedom from anxiety, fear & other painful emotions.
The retreat is open to everyone of all levels of experience and will be held in the beautiful, warm and relaxing setting of the Yellowave Beach Sports Clubhouse in Brighton. The clubhouse offers an open, light and airy space perfect for practising meditation. The single-story, wood clad building has uninterrupted sea views. The beach feel provides a unique space for this meditation retreat. There are chairs and cushions available, but you are welcome to bring your own cushion (or blanket) for extra comfort.

Directions & Parking
Arriving by car
The Yellowave Beach Sports Club is located close to Brighton Pier on Madeira Drive. The cheapest and most convenient place to park is either right outside the venue on Madeira Drive (between the Concorde 2 and Dukes Mound) or on Marine Parade (directly above the venue). Both these parking areas are only £1 per hour. Parking closer to the Brighton Pier is much more expensive.
If you park your car on Marine Parade, you can get down to beach level by using the steps opposite Paston Place (see map). It is only a 5 minute walk. Alternatively there is a lift operating on Marine Parade (The Madeira Lift – right opposite the venue) that takes you to beach level via the Concorde 2. When you come out of the Concorde 2 the venue is opposite.
Arriving by foot
The Yellowave Beach Sports Club can be accessed from either Marine Parade, the steps down from Madeira Drive (opposite Paston Place), or Dukes Mound. It is a 10-15 minute walk east from Brighton Pier. Click on the map for more details.
