Weekend Meditation Retreats & Courses
At Bodhisattva Centre we offer a range weekend meditation retreats that will give you an opportunity to relax and take a break from your life as well as helping you to find inner peace, contentment and happiness from within. Our courses are attended by men and women from all walks of life (read our testimonials) and bring many long term benefits into peoples lives.
These retreats are suitable for everyone. They explore different Buddhist meditation topics such as mindfulness, meditation, loving kindness, compassion, patience, wisdom and how we can practically apply them in daily life to solve our problems.
The courses are taught by experienced teachers who will guide all the meditations and answer any questions you may have about Buddhist meditation practice. In between sessions there is plenty of time to relax, go for walks, rest, and spend time with like minded people.
All meals are provided during our weekend courses and are vegetarian, home-cooked and delicious! During the breaks our café is open for you to relax, unwind and enjoy light refreshments.
The environment of Bodhisattva KMC is very relaxing and there is plenty of time between retreat sessions to enjoy our café, to meet and chat with other retreaters and the community of Bodhisattva KMC, and to enjoy walking and gentle strolls along the Brighton and Hove sea front and promenade. The peaceful surroundings of Bodhisattva KMC help people to create a comfortable space within their own minds.
To gain maximum benefit and to be fully immersed in a meditation course we offer people the option to stay at Bodhisattva KMC. We offer warm, clean, and comfortable residential accommodation and this can be booked through our online booking system.
